Christmas holidays are the most exciting times to be in Ghana. There are lots of exciting activities throughout the entire month and well into the new year, with music at the center of most Ghanaian festivities. For most musicians, a hit song in any other month is never a walk in the park, but a smash hit in December is even more rare. We chose a few hit songs from previous Christmas seasons and put forward some potential anthems for this season.
