The Super Bowl is the annual playoff championship game of the National Football League (NFL), and it draws millions of eyebrows.

Aside from the game itself and the billions of dollars that are spent on advertising, the Super Bowl’s half-time show is another thing that piques the interest of fans.

Rihanna performed back-to-back hits and also showed off her baby pump, confirming that she’s expecting her second child.

No Ghanaian musician has ever performed at the Super Bowl half-time show yet, but it won’t hurt anyone to start dreaming of such a day.

Ghana has produced several great musicians, both past and present, and maybe an artiste from the West African country could soon be performing at the NFL final.

Pulse Sports brings you five modern Ghanaian musicians who have the ability and temperament to boss a performance at the Super Bowl on any day.

The High Grade Music CEO is one of the best live performers in Africa and he certainly has lots of songs that will resonate with a global audience. Given the chance, Samini should be able to delight the NFL fans.


Sarkodie has seen it all and remains the most successful rapper from Africa. A two-time BET award winner and holder of several other accolades, Sarkodie can match the energy and lyrical dexterity of Eminem, Snoop Dog and the rest.

He has performed at big concerts in his career and has the experience of not being overawed by the huge fandom of the Super Bowl.


Wiyaala is one of the most travelled contemporary Ghanaian musicians. She remains the only artiste to have performed in almost every continent so far.
