Shatta Wale may have topped Billboard’s list of most viewed artistes in Ghana but when it came to the list for the entire continent, ‘Gbee Naabu’ was nowhere to be found.
Ghana did not have even one representative on the list of top 15 most viewed artistes in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Billboard’s list was topped by Nigeria’s Burna Boy, followed by Tanzania’s Diamond Platnumz and Davido OBO.
According to Billboard, the list was curated by calculating global views for African artistes South of the Sahara.
This tells us that despite a lot of ‘paa paa’ from our artistes, when it comes to the continental and even global stage they have a long way to go.
