Mr. Incredible is rolling back the years with ‘All my life’. This song gives us similar vibes to some of the love songs he has released in the past like ‘One Naira’, or ‘Playlist.

Sarkodie & Kwesi Arthus – Coachella

When two of Ghana’s biggest rappers hop on a track then you know you’re about to get some heat. Sarkodie did face some scrutiny for sampling Ghanian high-life legend George Darko but Sarkodie clarified in an interview that he got permission before releasing the song.

Mizzle ft Oxlade – Smile For You

Every year we get that one song that is a sweet melody that gets you smiling and puts you in the mood for summer, ‘Smile for you’ might just be that song. Upcoming artist/producer, Mizzle, hit the jackpot with this track and when you have Oxlade on a hook you can’t be disappointed.

Producers seem to be getting more recognition and are putting more work out there. Young John has made some hits over the years and might have just delivered another one with this track that features upcoming Ghanian artist Kidi.
