Zapp Mallet has stated categorically that the kind of Dancehall music produced in Ghana is just a cacophony of noise that has no flavour like what the originators, Jamaicans do.
According to him, Jamaican dancehall music allows him the opportunity to learn from music while the dancehall music from Ghana only “throws things together”.
He revealed this in an interview on the Y Leaderboard Series with YFM’s Rev. Erskine.
“I really like the dancehall genre. When I hear dancehall, I like to listen but not Ghanaian dancehall. I like to hear original Jamaican dancehall. And when I listen to music, I listen because I want to learn. I hear sounds, break them down and analyze but when I listen to ours, I don’t get anything like that. They just throw things together”.
Explaining why there seems to be a difference between the two, Zapp Mallet educated that usually, producers in Ghana do not put in enough work into the music.
He however said his posture is not to discourage anyone from doing dancehall music in Ghana.
