With this question "Who Is The Real King Of Dancehall" we have just opened up a can of worms.


There is no official King Of The Dancehall even thou a number of artists have claimed that they are the King.

Yellowman

The First unofficial King was Yellow Man, Yellowman (born Winston Foster, 15 January 1956) is a Jamaican reggae and dancehall deejay, also known as King Yellowman.

He was popular in Jamaica in the 1980s, coming to prominence with a series of singles that established his reputation.

Beenie Man

The 1990s saw the rise to fame of the now self-proclaim King Of The Dancehall Beenie Man. Although he was the one who takes claim to the name, He was crowned by the organizers of the world renown festival Reggae Sumfest.

Anthony Moses Davis (born 22 August 1973), better known by his stage name Beenie Man, is a Jamaican reggae dancehall recording artist. He is referred to as the world's "King of Dancehall".

Vybz Kartel

The late 2000s in dancehall music history was introduced to a young artiste by the name of Vybz Kartel. Very controversial, lyrical, hardworking, an entrepenure and smart artiste.

He is now been toted as the new King Of The Dancehall. Adidja Azim Palmer (born 7 January 1976) better known as Vybz Kartel, is a Jamaican musical artist, actor, record producer and entrepreneur.

Kartel is one of dancehall's most successful artists and among his various nicknames is referred to as "Worl' Boss".

In my opinion, Vybz Kartel is the King of Modern Dancehall. Yellowman and Beenie Man had their reigns during their respected times. Like any other King and Queen, the torch must be passed. I do agree that we should still respect the predecessors.

To me I think Beenie Man is the King, he has accomplished more than Kartel and Yellow Man.

Remember he also has a Grammy Award.

Beenie Man for Sure.
