Ninety has mastered the art of Afro-Fusion, making him a likeable artist regardless of the records he puts out, his singles have always shown he had it in him to deliver a good project, and on “Rare Gem”, he brings out his frustration and love stories to his records, making his album a more melodic, sincere, and effortful one.

4. Fameye – Songs of Peter

The Ghanaian singer has come a long way, from the old days of MTN Hitmaker Season 3 to his breakout year, he was destined to be here, and his second album didn’t disappoint at all.
