We are just halfway through the year 2017 but Shatta Wale has already given his competitors a gap they will hardly close by the end of the year.

The most influential and controversial Afro-Dancehall/Hiplife artiste, record producer and entrepreneur is currently in a comfortable lead with numerous bangers banging across the length and breadth of the country.

He started the year on a good note, dropping a nationwide hit “Ayoo” and followed with “Taking Over” before introducing Ghana’s Afro-Dancehall new favourite chaps, The Militants (made up of Addi Self, Captan, & Joint 77).

Even though he’s currently touring the United States, his records are banging behind him and it’s appropriate we acknowledge his efforts as the year gets to another phase.

PLEASE NOTE, THE LIST IS IN NO ORDER.
