Ghpage.com takes it readers through 5 major artists who pioneered the Dancehall genre in Ghana.
1. General Marcus
When talking Dancehall in Ghana, you can never dismiss General Marcus, Never. He is a veteran whose massive contribution to the Dancehall/Reggae genre can’t be underestimated.
His fondest memory was when he hit the limelight with Ga version of Buju Banton’s song. In the mid – nineties, Dancehall was unknown and barely respected. Marcus gave it an identity.
2. Terry Bonchaka
One person I personally wish was around to witness how far the genre he and couple of others championed have reached and still rising higher is Terry Bonchaka. Terry was the man Shaggy refused to perform unless he shared the stage with him when he came to Ghana in 2001
Terry Bonchaka was a germ when is comes to Dancehall music. Although he was versatile with the microphone. He true calling with Dancehall/ Reggae.With his unique clothing and Dancing, Terry Bonchaka easily seduced people with his songs. May he Rest In Perfect Peace.
