Blakk-Rasta - "Reggae Music Has Lost Its Roots" Whiles Dancehall in Ghana Has No Meaning

by DHRW
(Jamaica)


Even though there has been a new euphoria of interest in promoting the music genre which has been suffering to emerge, whiles not having much air play within music circles in the country, the unexpected beams out of bloom when Blakk Rasta expresses his frustration at Charterhouse with a written letter for contributing to the major collapse of root reggae in the country.


Blakk Rasta is a radio presenter at Hitz Fm and is also a reggae artiste with popular tunes like "Barack Obama", which has received international appeal, can best be described as an outspoken and controversial musician.

The recently held Ghana Music Awards committed a very big blunder by merging both dancehall and Root Reggae music, since the two are separate music genres.

The contributing factor which has led to event organizers creating different categories for the two genres is because the artistes are not working hard to merit such categories.

According to Blakk Rasta's explanation, his definition of dancehall music in Ghana has no meaning, but in the international circles it is supposed to be the roots form or by-product of reggae music.

He made these observations during last night's entertainment show on E-TV with Flexy, with panelists like Sammy of Flex Newspaper and Bull Dog of Bull House Entertainment, who expressed their shock about the views express by Blakk Rasta.

"One of the pioneers of reggae music, Culture, describes dancehall as the waste product of reggae music. I will say that such comment from Culture is harsh because we should encourage creativity.

"But in Ghana, dancehall has no formula. You play some R&B beats and the artist speaks some partwa in the line of composed music and it becomes dancehall music", Blakk Rasta stressed.

The reggae artist further cited that, the use of Jamaican language in the Ghanaian music circles is like amebae, voiceless and shapeless quest in describing what really the genre of dancehall music is in Ghana.

He made mention of two major producers in the country, namely Kill beats "Time bomb" by Samini and Jah Master Jah (JMJ) who have expressed their displeasure over their songs, which they have tagged as Afro-Pop being tagged as dancehall music during awards schemes in the country.
