    EVENT: GHANA celebrates Heights of Reggae Dancehall, 2nd Year Edition

    GHANA celebrates Heights of Reggae Dancehall, 2nd Year Edition

    [WRITTEN BY: Regula Rebel]

    CURRENTLY, reggae-dancehall is the loudest duo genre in Ghana and no form of circumstance or authority can stop this revolutionary phenomenon. The shouts and shots from the root forces underneath this phenomenon come in so hard and are the pressure effects of a rock solid cementation, hence the country’s reggae-dancehall surprise rise is fully strong enough now to survive any shut-down conspiracy anytime now or later.

    It’s, thus, an undisputable fact that Ghana is a reggae-dancehall nation from this musical era until eternity. There’s a lot of very strong event plans in the pipeline to make Ghana the number one African musical vacation destination for the African Diaspora and other non-afro nationalities, once reggae-dancehall has taken over Hip Life [the then ruling mainstream rap music in Ghana]. On fair statistics, Ghana’s reggae and dancehall music keeps doing very well by the day.

    All African nations compared, Ghana is the number one best reggae-dancehall nation on the African continent, as regards artistic success, musical excellence, serious mass acceptance, fan-base factions, vocal styling and delivery type of the duo genre.      

    DJ Nature Won, one of Ghana’s big name turn-tablists, out of his deepest contemplation and career love for reggae-dancehall, has successfully birthed out an official annual event dubbed “Heights of Reggae Dancehall” and the prospects circling around his objective are very high and surely unfailing.

    The less revealed objective of DJ Nature Won’s annual is the move to increase the already growing fan gravitation towards reggae and dancehall in Ghana. This single objective, over time, can very possibly elevate “Heights of Reggae Dancehall” from mini festival to a great musical summit, if the yearly repeat plan won’t suffer serious managerial lapses.  That said, “Heights of Reggae Dancehall”, if groomed properly and managed very well, will most likely draw in loads of people with strong inclination for Rastafari vibes and ghetto entertainment.    

    “Heights of Reggae Dancehall” comes off on the second Saturday of August every year.

    The first edition, which happened at Akuma Village [August 15, 2015], was a straight success. The audience was satisfactorily fed on good performances by both pioneer and young artistes. Even without the likes of Samini, Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy and other mainstream reggae-dancehall big shots, the maiden edition proved highly promising and each subsequent staging is expected to follow suit. Osagyefo, Konkarah, Goldteeth, Blakk Mexxiah, Iwan, Ras Kuuku, King Vuvu, AJ Lyrics, Scata Bada, Burning Fyah, Jah Wyz, Blouk and many other artistes were there to stamp their graces on the event’s sheet.

    This year’s edition, the second edition, is a home-coming treat to five of Ghana’s foreign based reggae-dancehall artsites, namely: Kojo Kombolo [Switzerland], Kwame Partan [Germany], Paapa Wastik [America], Raja Flames [Germany] and Black I [America]. This big 5 are brandishing the Ghana flag in their various foreign locations with their music and are back in town to offer back more. It is hoped that the third edition will see more of Ghana’s foreign-based artistes coming back home to honour the event and their orphan fans.

    There will be repeat appearances, but a great mix of new and previous releases will be served. Over 30 artistes have confirmed coming.

    On record, last year’s edition was perfectly co-MC’ed by Empress Lomo, Jah Love and King Lagazee, with selector support from Ras Nene, King Bash and Nana Dubwise --- not forgetting Kali Process, a freelance photographer for most of Ghana’s reggae-dancehall events.

    The venue for this year’s “Heights of Reggae Dnacehall” is still Akuma Village but the date of the occasion is August 15. The event starts at 6pm and ends in the next morning. It’s a full night show.

    Expect nothing but best performances of real good music, even at a venue like Akuma Village which is every ghetto youth’s feel personal joint.

    DJ Nature Won related that Next year’s edition will see some foreign artistes of non-Ghanaian nationalities coming down to grace the event.

    The big 5: Kojo Kombolo, Kwame Partan, Paapa Wastik, Black I, Raja Flames and all the over 20 other artistes on the event bill have promised to deliver their best on the night.
