Ghanaian Dancehall artiste, Samini says he is the originator and king of the genre on the African continent.
He told Mikki Osei Berko on ‘After Hours’ on TV3 that he’s managed to maintain the top spot because he minds his own business.
“African Dancehall is the genre I created so I’m still the King for that. Foreign market for African Dancehall is huge. Africa is doing Dancehall from the authentic point of view so then it becomes a specialized genre from African. Ghanaians or West Africans do dancehall music almost close to how Jamaicans do it.”
The ‘My Own’ act signed his first record deal with Ashanti International. He left the label to start his ‘High Grade Family’ label.
Samini has six studio albums to his credit. He has won multiple awards in Ghana, and around the world.
