Local Ghanaian artist Chief One has revealed that language will not be a barrier to his success in the global music industry. The singer, who is known for hits such as “Wotelewoea,” “Du Agbe,” and “Toyota,” has gained popularity both locally and internationally. Despite singing in his native Ewe language, Chief One has managed to break into the Top 100 songs in the Chinese music charts, proving that music is a universal language.

In a recent interview on TV3 New Day, Chief One discussed the quality of his music as the reason for his global success, saying, “I play in Togo and other countries. Music is a language in itself and currently, my music, ‘Young Boy,’ is in the Top 100 China Charts.” Although the Ewe language is spoken by only a fraction of the world’s population, Chief One has still managed to gain a significant following in the United States, with the country being his second most-streamed after Ghana.

Chief One remains committed to creating music that represents his culture and language, despite the limitations that may come with it. “I am dedicated to my vision of creating music that represents my culture and language,” he stated. With 6 million Ewe speakers in Ghana and 20 million in West Africa, Chief One’s music has the potential to reach a large audience, regardless of language barriers.

As a VGMA New Artiste of the Year nominee, Chief One’s music has been recognized by the Ghanaian music industry, and his global success is a testament to the fact that language need not be a hindrance to achieving success in the music industry.
