Ghanaian dancehall acts don’t copy Jamaicans

During a recent visit to Ghana reggae singer and a member of the sibling group Morgan Heritage Gramps did an interview in that country.

There he made it plain that Ghanian artists are definitely not copying Jamaicans.

The singer said he was ‘visiting, relaxing and visiting friends’ there on his second visit.

The question was put to Gramps during a JoyNews on MultiTV interview about a comment fellow reggae singer Luciano made during a Jamaican interview where he accused Ghanian artists of copying Jamaican in terms of dancehall music.

Gramps emphatically disagreed as he pointed out that the music actually originated from the motherland.

“We Jamaicans are just finding back our roots, don’t think  Ghanians are copying. Africa is the root whether it comes from Congolese or Senegalese. If you check the music jazz, the foundation of it is in Africa. If you check you will hear the influences don’t think no one in the Caribbean can say that,” he said, He admits that the culture has been copied such as the speaking and dress pattern but as for the beats, negative.

The singer also had high praises for some of the African artists such as Stoneboy, Samani and Shotta Walle he thinks they are doing a good job of bridging the gap between “Afro-pop, dancehall and reggae.”
