    Musically, 2013 has been a great year considering the positives outweighing the negatives. From several albums dropping this December to artists pushing creativity to the extremes with water, to features that gave us hooks and verses to mull over, over and over again, our artists showed up and showed out.

    This might not be all but this is what the year looked like musically.

    Okyeame Kwame walked on water. Yes, on a weekend when we were doing whatever we were doing to kill time, with the help of a platform in a pool, OK took giant steps to the amazement of the many witnesses at his digital launch.

    Okyeame Kwame Walks On Water

    Sarkodie released a thirty track album – ‘Sarkology’ after he shot his “Illuminati” video in the desserts of Dubai.

    Obrafuor featured on five solid songs that weren’t his. The executioner has never indulged that much in a single year.

    Efya finally released “This Is Not The” album TINT – mixtape. She also shot an underwater scene in her “Best In Me” video which looked more like a continuation to Sarkodie’s  “I’m In Love With You Now” video directed by same Director OJ.

    Fuse ODG had Sean Paul as cameo in his “Badder Than Bad” video and also Konshens on his remix.

    Samini Released the “Next Page” album.

    M.anifest released his “Apae” album. And shot an underwater scene in his Over and Under video. Its not a collection of hits. It’s an album with interludes and all which is missing in the albums apart from this one. But hammer hard them on his Obrafuor featuring Tour songs.

    Asem released his “Tough Times Don’t Last” album. Though there were many requests for another “Fylla” song, we are yet to hear one.

    Bisa KDei brought a fresh perspective with his “Thanks Giving” album. And yes he released the same day Sarkodie released his third studio album.

    Gyadu Blay Ambolley released his 27th studio album.

    The FOKN Bois went naked again. Mensa’s first time and Wanlov’s second ahead of a project they will be launching soon. Through their Bavaria Big In Ghana talent hunt they discovered one of the most interesting wordsmiths I have heard in 2013 – Bryte. They also released a sequel of Cos Ov Moni.

    Shatta Wale became the hottest artist and played an all packed venue wherever he went. He became a target for every artist positively and negatively. Yes! Even in Koforidua.

    Joey B released “Tonga” featuring Sarkodie and a week later it was a hit on radio, clubs, parties, and anywhere dance music could be played. Arguably the fastest hit made till date.

    Ronnie Coches of Buk Bak fame passed on.

    Kontihene made a great comeback with an album too.

    Sala was able to get the same guy who shot 50 Cent’s “I Got Money” video to work on her yet to be released video.

    D Black signed to Ciroc and they featured some Ciroc bottles in his “Carry Go” video with Davido.

    Dancehall music became so so trendy Amanda Jissih of E Talk fame couldn’t resist but make a record with Stonebwoy.

    Stonebwoy got on the Sting bill in Jamaica alongside 2Chainz, Beenie Man, Mavado and many others.

    Becca released “Time 4 Me” album!

    Akon, Big Sean, and Wizkid came for the Guinness show but the next day, all the conversations centered on Shatta Wale and Samini.

    Yes, Davido thanks to the British Council flew all the way to Tamale to play a concert at the Tamale Stadium.

    Friction and Bone left VIP leaving Promzy, Prodigal and Lazzy (now Zeal). Promzy also left the VIP. It’s now left with Lazzy and Prodigal.

    R2BEES signed as ambassadors to Star Beer.

    Wiyaala after six months of active mainstream music landed a Pepsi deal and shot a video underwater. She also rode a high performance motor bike in her second video to top it all off.
