Our music space has been blessed with talents year in year out and this year promises to be no different. Some of these talents have flattered to deceive whiles others have gone on to build brilliant careers.
Today we profile ten young and upcoming acts that we must all be looking out for in the year 2019.
“Tulenkey dey worry” as has been his signature is in to worry us this year per the promise we saw last year. The rapper who was featured on Sarkodie’s Biibi Ba record did so well with releases such as F**k Bois, 1/1 mixtape and many others. He looks like the next big thing for Ghana music
The Dede hitmaker looks not to be here for a joke with his Dede song enjoying massive airplay. He has appeared on some shows and 2019 looks a big year ahead of him. It’s gonna be a make or break for him
The winner of MTN hitmaker 2018 has all the markings of stardom written over her. And she seems to have fallen into the right hands after she was signed by the Bhimnation president, Stonebwoy. With a 100,000 cedis recording deal in her possession, we can just keep our fingers crossed and watch out for the young dancehall sensation.
Another one of the Ground Up movement, he also seems to be enjoying something of a smooth ride after ruling the MC on Sark’s Biiba song. Mole!!! We’ve got our eyes on you this year.
If there is any big thing to come from Taadi after Kofi Kinaata then look no further than the man who says “Maay3”. Hip Hop, Fanti rap, wordplay, metaphors and punchlines all in one pack is what TyCuun represents. Another to look out for this year.
He is another member of the Biiba Ba squad. He says there’s been nothing like him when it comes to rap in Ghana. It is for this words that we have fixed our musical binoculars on him to see how he performs this year. But we can say one thing, he dey rap!!
It promises to be a huge year ahead of this young man from Accra’s suburb town of Nungua. From underground, to empawa100 and he looks set for global stardom with even an international collabo on the horizon for him. If you’re a lover of dancehall music, then J.Derobie is your man for 2019.
When Kinaata said Westside is the world Bank of GH rap, he didn’t lie. He was talking about people like Hyndu. Dynamism, dexterity, flow , Fanti, all hits you when hyndu is behind the mic. It promises to be an amazing year for this young one too with collaborations with Donzy all coming up.
It’s one thing doing freestyle videos, it’s another getting features but you’re on a whole new level when newspapers starts writing about you. That is Frequency rap for you. We expect him for his big break this year.
To complete this list for us is “The Beast” as they call him. The hip hop rapper has potential, has shown promise and needs to show us this year that he can step up to the bigger stages.
Let us know, if you think there is someone who also needs a mention just drop them in the comments section. We’ll shine some lights of them as we always do here at kobbykyeinews.
