It’s that time of the year to pause, rewind and remember the videos that defined YouTube in 2016.


YouTube Ghana released its year end feature, “YouTube Rewind”, for 2016. The rankings were split into two categories: “Top Trending Music Videos of 2016 and Top Trending Videos of 2016”.


Four of MiPROMO Media Network managed channels namely Shatta Wale, Sarkodie, Stonebwoy and Pappy Kojo channels dominated the list providing eight music videos in all.


The rankings were not only based on the number of views, but also how much it was shared, the number of comments, the video’s value, number of follow up videos derived from the original video and engagement time.


The Top Trending Music Videos ranking was topped by Shatta Wale’s ‘Baby (Chop Kiss) in the number 1 spot, his ‘Kakai video drops in at the fourth spot too.
