The song first made it onto Africa’s only Top 50 music chart at number 50. Making its debut 20 weeks ago, it has seen massive radio and television rotation and according to Afribiz Chart, the song – ‘My Kinda Girl’ is the 10th most popular song on the African continent.

Beginning the journey at number 50, it ascended abruptly to number 31. Then shot suddenly again to number 21. Spending about two to three weeks at that spot, it managed to make to number 18 and shortly afterwards, to number 16. Just a week before the 13th Annual Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, where D-Black got nominations for ‘Best Video of the Year’ and ‘Hip-Hop Song of the Year’ for the same song, ‘My Kinda Girl’ was the 13th most popular song in Africa.

When www.afribizcharts.com announced the release of the African Top 50 chart for week 22 on 23rd April, D-Black had made it to top 10 making it the first Ghanaian song to hit the Top 10 mark!

Other Ghanaian songs making an appearance on the charts include Manifest at number 23 with ‘Maka Maka’, Sarkodie at number 33 with ‘I’m in Love with You’ featuring Efya and Ruff and Smooth at number 37 with ‘Beautiful’.

D-Black’s new single with Nigeria’s Mo Cheddah which was released two months ago snatched the number 48 spot upon making its first appearance on the chart today. The video Falling – the title of the single, was released barely two weeks ago but has received massive rotation too across Africa. Earning it that honourable spot on the Top 50 African Chart.
