Black Prophet Engages in In-Depth Conversation on 3Music TV: Redefining Reggae in Ghana
Black Prophet on Big Convo

Acclaimed Reggae artist Black Prophet took center stage on The Big Conversation on 3Music TV, where he engaged in a thought-provoking discussion with the Culture Squad. The conversation unveiled the artist's unique perspective on life and how it influences his music.



Black Prophet shed light on his musical evolution while recording his upcoming album, From Osu Notably, he revealed his decision to incorporate sounds from the traditional "gomey" drum into Reggae. This innovative fusion was a deliberate choice to pay homage to his roots, underscoring the importance of connecting with his local audience. He emphasized that when performing in Ghana, he abstains from using Patois, as the language barrier would hinder the intended message's dissemination.



Expanding on the misconceptions surrounding Reggae in Ghana, Black Prophet distinguished true Reggae artistes such as Lucky Dube, Bob Marley, Freddie McGregor, and Alpha Blondie from Reggae Dancehall artists like Sean Paul, Bounty Killer, Beenie Man, and Ninja Man. He pointed out the need for clarity in award schemes within the Ghanaian music industry, particularly in the creation of the "Reggae Dancehall" genre.



He contended that, unlike in Jamaica, there is no distinct Reggae Dancehall genre; artistes are either Reggae or Dancehall artists. He attributed the prevailing commercial allure of dancehall to its prevalence in the industry, pulling the masses away from the roots of Reggae. However, he acknowledged that some artists successfully experiment with both genres.



Black Prophet's insights and dedication to preserving the essence of Reggae in Ghana are set to spark important conversations within the music industry, prompting a reevaluation of the genre's categorization and recognition.
