Among the notable albums released in December were Medikal's "Society" EP, Runtown's long-length studio project "Signs," Zinoleesky's incredible "Grit and Lust" body of work, and more. These albums were among the most eagerly awaited musical releases of the year, as evidenced by the frenzy that surrounded each of them.

Only a few of them—the ones we at DC Leakers chose for this month's top five—are albums.

Medikal – Society


After his Twitter account, where he was most active, was suspended, Medikal went silent for a while.
Even though he isn't using the platform, he continues to interact with and engage with his fans on other sites like Snapchat and Instagram, and this somehow reaches his Twitter followers.


The tracklist and album art for an EP were posted online by Medikal's team a week ago.
Many people had doubts that the project would ever be completed because Medikal has a history of delaying releases.


By releasing the album as promised, the celebrated Ghanaian rapper has at last kept his word.
This new extended play, which has 10 tracks and only features Shatta Wale, is titled "Society."
 

This comes as he gets ready for The Freedom Wave Concert II, his second joint performance with Shatta Wale. The project is clear proof that Medikal has been working behind the scenes, even though he has been absent from social media for some time.

 

Runtown – Signs

 Runtown has always been a strong artist because of his thorough knowledge of current mainstream pop sensibilities.
It remains the same after Soundgod Fest Reloaded in 2021 when he makes a comeback with Signs.

The 13-track album adopts a serene, reflective, and introspective tone.
He forgoes the intense moments that characterized earlier works like his debut Ghetto University in favor of a midtempo production and relaxed delivery that perfectly fits the current Afropop sound.

Runtown tells Apple Music that "for many people, it might feel like their first time hearing me on songs like these."
 
They might even think they're hearing a brand-new artist.
However, I'm mostly returning to the fundamentals and giving them a new twist.

Zinoleesky – Grit And Lust

2022 has been a wildly prosperous year for Zinoleesky. With major hits following one another, the gifted vocalist has been on fire all year. The appropriate testimonies include songs like Personal, Loving You, Rocking, and even Call of Duty. Since Zinoleesky isn't yet content, he's decided to end the year with a body of work.
 
The eagerly anticipated “Grit N Lust” EP by singer-songwriter Zinoleesky, signed  has been made available. The album “Grit N Lust,” which has eight songs overall, features guest performances from some of Nigeria’s best performers, including Omah Lay and Ayra Starr.

 

Pappy Kojo – Nothing Matters

Rapper Pappy Kojo from Ghana is back to grab listeners' attention. After being absent from the music scene for about nine months following the release of the six-track EP "Logos Hope," the entertaining rapper is making a comeback before the year is out.

Pappy Kojo's most recent studio release of the year, Nothing Matters, is an extended play with four sublime songs. Larruso and Kwawkese are the only performers on the album; they can be heard on Tracks 2 and 4, respectively.

With an emphasis on songwriting, song production, and song arrangement, "Nothing Matters" is a fantastic body of work.

 

 

M.anifest – Madina To The Universe (The Epilogue)

A new project by well-known Ghanaian rapper M.anifest was released just before the year's end. M.anifest's most recent album, "Madina To The Universe," which featured M3nsa, Ladipoe, Vic Mensa, Adekunle Gold, and other musicians, is a follow-up to his fourth studio album.

With "Madina To The Universe (The Epilogue)," M.anifest follows up on his previous studio release. It features contributions from Wavypae, Alee, Anik Khan, and M.I. Abaga.

The entire "Madina To The Universe" endeavor has been successful when taking into account the reviews, the production, the arrangement, and everything else that goes into a respectable record.
