  1. What hes getting at is pride. From my time in ghana eye can say that ghanians are not inherently as proud to be ghanaian as nigerians are about their nationality. Nigerians set the trend, whilst ghanaians as a culture are still looking to thr oitside for validation. Just my observation. Eye think twi is a beautiful language. And trust me as americans we dont know whay they saying in half the nigerian songs either. But we listen just the same. Imagine how many ppl dont understand english, but still bop american music. Its because it soinds good + the clout of being adjacent american culture (infliential) thats been created. If ghanaians hype up their country from all corners of the globe, then the music will spread.

  2. USA πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡² – Hip-hop, R & B
    Jamaica πŸ‡―πŸ‡² – Reggae Dancehall
    South Africa πŸ‡ΏπŸ‡¦ – Amapiano
    Nigeria πŸ‡³πŸ‡¬ – AFROBEATS
    Ghana πŸ‡¬πŸ‡­ – AFRO BEEF 🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣

  3. In my opinion, music is all about promotion and awareness, and Nigerians have excelled at doing exactly that. When we look back at the time when Hip Hop was an underground genre, the pioneers globally promoted it and brought it to the forefront. Similarly, Nigerians have successfully promoted Afrobeats, putting it on the map and making it a well-known and popular genre.

  4. Bro what the host said is the exact problem, Ghanaians can never transcend musically because Everything is geared towards the local audience and everything is twi twi twi, you have to mix it up a bit so you don’t alienate outside listeners and even our beats need some modernization itself which Nigerian have already done because todays Afrobeats is highlife and azonto put together

  5. Ghanians always use Azonto as a benchmark for past glory. Azonto was only a dance, never a musical form. Azonto was danced to Naijabeatz, now known as Afrobeats.

  6. What!!!!!!!!Ghanaian dialects are beautiful. Heck no!!!!!!!!!!!! I know sister here is trying to be nice. Their dialects are way too unsavoury to my ears πŸ‘‚ with that annoying whistling noises they make when speaking.☝️🀫

  7. Ghana is doing great in Music but they always see Nigerians as competition. And of which, Nigerians never see any African country as their competitors not even the WEST because the world is now their focus.
