Dancehall is next to rule in Ghana – Shatta Rako

Shatta Rako believes this is the time for Dancehall music to dominate

in Ghana. According the smooth reggae/dancehall artist, people are

getting fed up with the 'Azonto' regime and they are turning to

Dancehall. "Afro Dancehall is a high tempo thing so it's an advantage

for the genre." According to him, the sudden rise in Dancehall music

is because the people are fed up and are sticking to the next

available option. "I just think Dancehall time is up," he explained

Shatta Rako believes that Afro Dancehall artists should do more to

improve to sustain the interest of the masses or risk losing the good

fortunes to something else that may come up. He has assured his fans

he will continue to feed them with good music till the year end. "My

fans should expect continuous release of singles…to show them 'mi ah

di Original Shatta'". He recently added Kojo Legend to his name and he

believes the brand addition will catch up with music lovers soon.

Dancehall music has become very popular with the rise of artists like

Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy, Iwan, Kaakie etc. The recent releases of

R2Bees, Samini and Wizkid have pushed the genre a notch higher. The

popularity of the genre saw the organization of the BASS Awards, a

wholly reggae, ragga and dancehall award scheme.
