Dancehall and Reggae Music will rule Ghana - Jon Germain


Musician and television presenter Jon Germain has categorically stated that Dancehall and Reggae will put Ghana on the international map.


The ‘Still Here’ singer told NEWS-ONE in an interview that he believes both genres will rule the country someday.

“I said this on TV long ago that Dancehall and Reggae will rule Ghana. I said this because the people who do Reggae and Dancehall in Ghana are the people whose music crosses our borders. If you are listening to Rocky Dawuni or Osagyefo on radio in Jamaican, people will wonder who these people are.

These people most of the time perform live; they don’t mime, they just do straight real performance,” Jon stated.

When I made that prophecy, I expected and waited patiently for it to happen and I feel the prophecy is finally coming through, he added.

Jon Germain’s ‘Still Here’ was nominated in the Music Video of the year (Reggae) for this year’s BASS Awards.

The singer added that the “BASS Awards has always been supportive. It is an award that I have always congratulated for being able to come up with a scheme, which will award people who do Reggae and Dancehall in Ghana. I’m wondering why the song wasn’t nominated but the video was. But it is interesting to find out that my video, which I shot in London, has been nominated. People, who shot the video, are very happy about the fact that the idea we came up with has been nominated for the BASS Awards.”

The second edition of the BASS Awards is slated for August 30 at the National Theatre.
