Disclaimer: I’m not a fan of autotune or some of the really awful lyric choices that seem to dominate pop music here.
However, to give you a taste of what pumps through the speakers of nearly every bus station, shop, and club, here is a sampling of some of the tracks that folks in Accra seem most fond of right now.
Chop My Money, P-Square feat Akon & May D:
Sweetio, Raquel feat Sarkodie:
Best in Me, Efya:
Over Again, Edem:
