While some publications are reporting that this makes Amaarae and Moliy the first Ghanaians to break into the Billboard Hot 100 we can’t confirm that as 1970s GhanaianAfro-rock band Osibisa reportedly made it on those charts previously with their album Woyaya (#66).
OkayAfrica recently spoke with Amaarae for our Decoded series after the release of her debut album, The Angel You Don’t Know. She broke down hit songs like “Trust Fund Baby”, “Jumping Ship” with Kojey Radical as well as her Southern rap musical influences. She also mentions being inspired by an op-ed that she penned for OkayAfrica in 2019, and her mother’s role in helping her coin the album title The Angel You Don’t Know.
