Several international artists have shown interest in collaborating with Ghanaian musicians, reflecting the global recognition of Ghana's music industry.

After the announcement, some suggested that Ghanaian musicians are lagging behind when it comes to international collaboration.

However, that is not entirely the true state of the situation because some Ghanaian musicians have also been able to land international features with some top music acts across the world.

Hence, this list looks at top foreign acts who have songs with Ghanaian musicians.


Some notable examples include:

  1. Beyoncé: Beyonce can not be missing in this list following her collaboration with Shatta Wale for her Lion King; The Gift album. She featured the Ghanaian dancehall act on “Already” in 2019 and that song has been the most talked-about international collaboration that features a Ghanaian act.

Ed Sheeran: Fuse ODG again made Ghana proud when collaborated with the award-winning British singer on “Boa Me” which was released in 2017 with Mugeez featuring on it. He also contributed as a songwriter on Ed Sheeran’s “Divide” album which won a Grammy in 2018.


Keri Hilson

Stonebwoy for his “Anloga Junction” album also managed to fetch out American singer, Keri Hilson, to do a song titled “Nominate”.

Ace Hood

In 2015, Sarkodie collaborated with American rapper Ace Hood on a song titled “New Guy”. The song was Sarkodie’s biggest international collaboration then and it sparked controversies, particularly, over how he landed the feature.


Sean Paul

The Ghanaian UK based singer has a way around international collaborations. After working with Wyclef Jean, the “Antenna” singer also managed to get Sean Paul on a song titled “Dangerous Love” which was released in 2014.

It's worth noting that the dynamics of the music industry can lead to unexpected collaborations, and artists from various parts of the world may continue to express interest in working with Ghanaian musicians.
