Founded in 2012 in a small 20 x 20 ft room in the North Kaneshie neighborhood of Accra, Black Avenue Muzik has gradually grown and spawned some of Ghana’s biggest talents continentally even with its humble beginnings.

Founded by multiple award-winning Ghanaian hip-hop / Afrobeats Artist D-Black, under the Black Avenue Muzik umbrella in his first 5 years of being an entertainer racked up over 50 award nominations worldwide including being the first Ghanaian hip-hop act to be nominated at the BET Awards in the category of Best African Act (2012) and the only Ghanaian rapper to have won at the prestigious Channel o Awards in South Africa for Best West African Act.

From Somebody Ft. Kwabena Kwabena, Get on da dance floor with D Cryme to My Kinda Girl with Sarkodie to the continental hit ‘Vera’ as well as his massive smash records with Castro ‘Personal Person’ & Seihor, D-Black has stood the test of time under the BAM umbrella. Joey B’s two-year stint at BAM produced him the monster hit ‘Tonga’ by in-house producer Dj Breezy as well as won him the Best New Artist of the Year award that year at the VGMAs. Dj Breezy’s VGMA producer of the year nominations and win in 2015 highlighted him as the brain behind numerous Number 1 records from D-Black, Castro, EL, VVIP, Joey B, and the continental smash hit from Nigerian Superstar ‘Patoranking’s’ My Woman My Everything.

Kumerican Artiste Yaw Tog’s “Sore” Song Featured On Billboard

Published

on

Kumerican artiste Yaw Tog’s “Sore” song was featured on Billboard Italia as the drill song seems destined for international success.

After clocking 2 million views on Twitter alone after a week of its release, the song which features other Kumasi based artistes O’Kenneth, Reggie, City Boy, and Jay Bahd is making major waves.

Ghana’s own version of Trap music portrayed by Kumerican artistes as Asakaa Music is now the most trending genre today as the “Sore” song currently sits atop the Apple Music Ghana chart, Boomplay, Audiomack, and other streaming platforms.

Billboard Italia commended the Kumasi based artistes for their sound reminiscent of the late American artiste Pop Smoke.

Sore on Billboard Italia

In a year when the rapper was shot dead by four armed gang men, the Kumerican artistes are arguably the new bearers of the torch in trap music here in Ghana.

WATCH SORE MUSIC VIDEO BELOW:

American rapper Vic Mensa, born Victor Kwesi Mensa, jumped on Yaw Tog’s song as he posted snippets of his verse on social media.

Meanwhile, Vic Mensa is of Ghanaian descent and is currently signed to Jay Z’s Roc Nation.
