February is a good moment to waltz with romance through music.
Ghanaian power couples
For netizens in Ghana, it is also the month in which to tap into the romantic vibes of their favourite power couples such as Okyeame Kwame and Annica Nsiah-Apau, who are enjoying their 13th year of marriage, and ‘Rap God’ Sarkodie and Tracy Owusu Addo, who represent loyalty through the hustle from rags to riches.
Stonebwoy and Dr. Louisa Asong also portray a fairy-tale “love at first sight” story between an idol and a one-in-a-million fan, whilst John Dumelo and Gifty Mawunya Nkornu’s public support of each other’s business successes is an important layer of their bond.
Blend with Spotify
There is a new way to experience this season of love with Blend, the Spotify feature that merges your most-streamed songs with that of another person. The best part? It generates a matching results percentage, helping you assess how much your music tastes vibe with each other.
In fact, Spotify’s “Blend” feature – accessible by typing “BLEND” in the search bar, clicking on “create blend”, and simply sharing your invite link with your fellow Spotify streamer – could be the matchmaker you’ve been looking for this February! Or perhaps, you’re already taken and simply want to figure out just how much you relate with your loved one, musically.

Here is a look at the top 5 on Spotify in the month of love in Ghana:
