Legendary Ghanaian Highlife Musician, Pat Thomas, swept Shegah off her feet when he appeared at
her Family Party held on December 24, 2022. The annual party held by Shegah is an occasion where the Veteran Ghanaian Hiplife/Dancehall Singjay throws a lavish party for her family, friends, colleagues artistes and media. Shegah pulled the same fête on Christmas Eve last year amidst a solid live band from Ramblers Vibes Band.
The annual event powered by Magic Records pulled together Veteran Ghanaian Highlife
Singer/Business Man Obiba Sly Collins, Kamelyeon, Danny Erskine, Elorm Beenie, DJ Bosco, DJ Toxic,
rising Singjay Akylah, among other well-meaning faces.
She is a Ghanaian Singjay and Business Woman. Born as Mildred Hansen. Shegah, was born to the late Highlife Legend, Jerry Mark Hansen of blessed memory, her father was the
founder of the Ramblers International Band.
Music runs through her family and this manifested when she established the first female Hip-life
group in Ghana in 1995 called Triple M — Mildred, Mercy & Monica. Shegah gained much
mainstream attention when they released the popular track “KOTI”.
She would later break away from the group to pursue her solo career. Then began a solo career and
didn’t give up on music. For this reason, she worked with most of the hit-making artistes at that time
like Praye, Tony Harmony, Castro, Mzbel, Reggie Zippy, Yaa Pono, and many others.
With the change of music trends in Ghana which affected most pioneer musicians, Shegah decided
to hibernate and rebrand her music from hip-life to reggae/dancehall which is the trending genre in
Ghanaian music. Shegah’s hit ‘Dem Marking Time’ went straight into the UK Reggae Chats at No.6 in
2018 and Dem Marking Time won Best Music Video of the Year at NELAS 2018. In addition to that,
her hit song Big It Up won Best song of the year at the DBE Music Awards UK. Shegah was honoured
with Outstanding Achievement in Music at Panache 2018 in the UK.
The African female artiste recently celebrated her life in music with other top entertainers from the
UK for a very successful 2018. The dancehall diva is bursting into Nigeria’s music industry, introducing
one of her hit track audio/video titled “MURDER”, featuring Samini and Jupitar.
