Budding reggae-dancehall artiste, Jah Lightning has described most reggae dancehall musicians in Ghana like Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy as noise makers .
Speaking in an interview with Modern Africa Online, Jah Lightning disclosed that reggae-dancehall musicians in Ghana must sit up and make music devoid of noise:
“It’s sad the kind of songs most of these dancehall artists produce… Most of their songs are very noisy …they lack authenticity …the songs are raw”.
He argued that,” Most of them mime instead of playing live during their performances which is very unprofessional…they really lack creativity”.
Without mincing words, the outspoken budding reggae-dancehall act blabbed that, “but I am here to produce songs that would change the face of Ghanaian dancehall music scene”.
