Donzy & Kofi Kinaata’s “The Crusade” Most Popular Song This Year?
Late June this year, something happened in the Ghanaian music scene and from my statistical research, I have come to realize it is even bigger than I thought. Donzy and Kofi Kinaata collaborated to bring us the most creative and funniest song so far this year titled “The Crusade” which was produced by Seshie.
Even before the song was released, there have been a high amount of anticipation because of the 2 rappers involved and of-course the producer behind the the whole thing. I had my own expectations as well and was trying to connect these 2 talented artists using the previous releases as a platform to do my calculations. What was unleashed blew me away and it kept me nodding my head saying “THIS IS IT!”
Now why do I say “The Crusade” might be the most popular song this year? Help me do some maths here… Loud Sound Ghana receives about 3000 to 5000 hits per day which comes with about 2000 to 2500 unique visitors each day. Meaning Loud Sound Ghana gets an average of 70,000 visitors each month. Now, since the Crusade was released, it has always appeared in the “Top 5” posts of the day and It has never gone below the Top 5 posts of the day.
I concluded that, not everyone who opens a post, may download the song. Some may not download or even stream but just want to read what the song is about. So I decided to check the Hit Stats using “AWStats” in our website control panel. From June 20th (When the song was published) to now, the song “The Crusade” had exactly 8,979 downloads as I type this. And as you read now, its Number 3 on “Top 5 Posts” on Loud Sound Ghana.
Well, this is not what makes it popular though… But look at other websites who posted this song. Some of these website may probably have more traffic than I do. I believe if Donzy and Kofi Kinaata climbs the stage to perform this track, the whole crowd will sing along word to word!! I heard rumours the official video is coming up and I pray it gets more dope to match with the audio. Before you leave your comments or share this, listen to the song once more challe!!!!
