Clubhouse: 15 Top African Songs from emerging artists 2020

Maxwell Adjavon Employee One

ClubHouse Edition

Last week, the iMullar Clubhouse room was left heated with hard hitting opinions by people in the music industry to tastemakers from all over Africa and the diaspora. It took a grueling 4 hours of deliberations to determine 15 of the hottest African tracks of 2020 based on rules set by host and moderator Maxwell Adjavon, Employee Number One at iMullar. Despite some charged conversations, those in attendance came up with a list agreed upon by all co-hosts and clubhouse members.

So what was the criteria? Firstly, the team had to eliminate every established artist who had been in the music industry for a while and already made a significant mark. This is because the definition of an “emerging artist” category is specifically for artists who are up and coming even though they may be privileged enough to have a couple of hit songs. The second qualifying criteria to make the cut was that the song and its impact must transcend its original country to at least one other African country during the period of 2020.

Finally, selections were not based on streams or backend information since regular Clubhouse members are not privy to that sort of information but we counted on street impact as the main measure of success. Tricky as it may seem, if the music transcends, you will know. In no particular order, here our top 15 African songs from 2020.
