Before Sarkodie flew in a helicopter and Shatta Wale showing off his fleet of luxury cars and gold chains in their music videos, there were some old music videos deemed gold.
Anyone who watched Ghanaian music videos in the late ‘90s and the early 2000s would tell the excitement that comes with it.
Don’t forget about the joy that comes when those side-splitting animations, those long ‘bling bling’ chains, oversized footwears and baggy jeans pop up on the screens.
Renowned film director, Abraham Ohene Gyan did most of the job for the early artistes.
But today, those ‘classic’ and high-budgeted music videos serve as pills of amusement. It’s not as if those music videos are invaluable but the new technology has changed its value.
On this note, we present to you 5 of the old Ghanaian classic but rib-cracking videos that will lock up your jaw all day!
1. That infectious smooth dance in Daddy Lumba’s “Abena Wo Ha”
2. Those heavy baggy jeans and bling bling Hip-hop chains in Castro’s “Toffee”
3. LOL! The sea animation in Akyeame’s “Masan Aba” is just crazy
4. The village setting and the hilarious story line in Praye’s “Shordy” is amazing
5. And don’t forget about the cracking moments in Nkasei’s “Tuabodom”
