The PLK back with the fire!!! BBnZ Live’s Ko-Jo Cue is here with the remix version of “Wole”, a Hip-Hop song to make strong waves in the country. In this version he lines up a whole squad to add their voices to the banging tune. It’s a battle of verses as Worlasi, Kwesi Arthur, Kay-Ara, Shaker, Temple and C-Real match up boot for boot with fire 16s. Enjoy!
Mr Eazi recently released 2 singles off his upcoming sophomore to the Life is Eazi series. One of them featured UK Grime artiste, Giggs. AFROLEKTRA upon hearing the song got inspired and immediately added some refreshing elements to it, to make it into his own remix. AFROLEKTRA enriched this piece with Afro-EDM elements, making it a whole new experience.
bigBen. You’ve probably heard the name somewhere… On social media or a blog. You’ve probably heard his music. bigBen is a soulful singer, rapper and songwriter, whose art would find a place in your heart.
Steeze Hub writer Nana Kofi Tego had an exclusive interview with this fast rising Nigerian born music star. In view of the artiste’s new single release on Friday, 20th April 2018, this interview is bringing to light some things we have to know about this profile who already has some nice tunes with high profiled artistes in Ghana.
A brief introduction was made by the young star and he had lots of cool personal things to say about himself.
“I was born in Jos City Nigeria but I am an Igbo by tribe, to a family of 7 which includes my parents and siblings. I’m the third child and also the third boy. I attended my high school at Baptist High School in Jos City, came to Ghana to study biomedical engineering at All Nations University, Koforidua.”
With a wonderful personal profile, bigBen went further to discuss his music career and how it all began. It must be said that he’s had a wonderful and quick paced career and some level of interesting versatility.
“As far as I can remember, music has always been a part of me, but I took it serious and professional about two years ago when I met my management (Harmony Records). I am actually not specifically a hip-hop artist. I’m rather more of an Afro soul art than hip-hop but I am very versatile artist so I like to experiment with various genres.”
When asked of his mentors or idols he left it short by stating that his mum and dad are the people he looks up to.
Doing music in Africa or specifically Ghana is not all rosy, and for some underground acts, if not, most artistes it has proven to be a herculean task to break through to limelight. Bigben our guest is no different as he shares his experience on the road so far with us.
“Definitely I have faced a lot of challenges from studio equipment to finding the right way to push my music but yeah whenever I look at how determined my parents are, it keeps me going and believing that I will make it. I get lots of supports from friends and family which also keeps me on the right path psychologically. I want to use this opportunity to thank everyone that has supported my dream to this point.”
Now bigBen details his music career so far and its evident he’s on an ascending path to greatness with his work and effort. Already with some good number of singles under his belt and some fantastic collaborations.
“I have released about six singles and have been featured on one by M.anifest. But I have almost a thousand unreleased songs LOL. Worked with also Bisa Kdei, Sista Afia, Ko-Jo Cue, Teephlow, Edem, and currently in works with Stonebwoy. I look forward to working with Sarkodie, Kwesi Arthur, Adina and many others. I am really hoping I get my breakthrough this year and start disturbing the world.”
Before we moved to his upcoming release of “Bullion” remix featuring Teephlow and Edem, he was asked why he decided to choose these arts on his arguably best single so far.
“Well, when I worked on the songs, I just knew they were going to give it the finishing touch because they are amazing rappers and I’m so humbled and glad they were kind to bless me with their verses, I’m super grateful.
Finally, our interview guest bigBen will release the remix of his latest single “Bullion” on Friday and he features VGMA 2018 Record of the year winner Teephlow and multiple award winning artiste Edem and was produced by Kwaku Drizzy.
“Bullion came as an inspiration after listening to Kwesi Arthur’s ‘Grind Day’, I was like mayne I wanna do a track like this, so I hit up Lesane who produced the beat and the rest is history!”
Make it a point to download Bullion remix ft. Teephlow & Edem produced by Kwaku Drizzy on steezehub.com.

Russell, a student of Baptist University College in Kumasi is an extraordinary emcee who is a member of the YB Click Music group. The original version of this song was released a year ago. Celebrating his birthday the rapper decided to make it special by featuring his label mates and making a remix of this lit Hip-Hop song. The label mates include Ericam Beck, Lil Fyve, U.R. Foster & Aba. The invigorating Hip-Hop instrumental was produced by Ice Geezy. Listen closely to the verses… it’s a pack of rap techniques, metaphors and what have you.
The Young Skona-2 Fyngers chemistry is getting better. Collaborating on 2 songs already, Skona drops the remix of “Carry”. The original version enjoyed great feedback on social media… and the remix has potential of doing more. @youngskona goes in deeper with the flow on this one, and doesn’t go low on the bars! 2 Fyngers adds a humorous verse making this an assured jam. I must say this, the remix is a better jam!
In the life of any artiste, one of the riskiest thing one can do is to make a remix of a song that put him/her in the limelight. Kwesi Arthur gathers confidence to feature the highest, Sarkodie and AMG Business’ very own Medikal on “Grind Day (Remix).” With a new verse from Kwesi Arthur, and one of the best verses I’ve heard all year from Sarkodie, we can’t ask for more. Although Medikal’s verse wasn’t the best, I believe we’d still enjoy the remix of our favourite jam, produced by Kayso.. Enjoy!
There are songs which become hits off the internet. “Ekomedeme” happens to be one of them. The song which had massive social appeal caught the attention of Ghana’s most decorated musician, Sarkodie. Hence he laid a verse on the Afropop instrumental for a remix. In fact, before hearing the song I thought Broni was a rapper, just to plug in an earpiece and realize he’s a young man who lays sweet vocals. “Ekomedeme” literally translates to English as “I am hungry.” Broni sings about how people may be going hungry, literally, discussing poverty (a topic which most musicians don’t like to touch). You know how Sarkodie gets emotional with a topic like this, right? He goes in like none other. DJ Kwamzy laid the instrumental whilst Laxio handled post production.
If I’m to mention one song which has become very successful, I’d definitely mention “Odo” by KiDi. The Lynx Entertainment signed artiste has soared through the heights to become a well-known star, who’s steady stacking hits. He has taken a major step by featuring two of Africa’s great musicians on the remix of “Odo”. These African kings are Mayorkun and the “Fall” hitmaker, Davido. What else?
This is an interesting song, because 2 don’t have a thirty billion whilst one does. LOL.. Davido and Mayorkun’s new verses are interesting and a must listen. Beautiful piece!
De1 Records’ very own artist Lixil brings us the remix of a track which was quite popular in various circles in 2016 “GoGoGaGa.”
The track was produced by one of the youngest producers in Ghana, JB and it features Abusuapanin Chiki of MTN Project Fame and J Bixil. Download and share to keep the spirit of afromusic up.
Did we see this coming? WOW! Mr Eazi surprises us all with a groundbreaking record which has a global reach, featuring foreign artistes, Major Lazer, French Montana and Ty Dolla Sign. Kindly purchase or stream the single below…
