Veteran Ghanaian singer and composer Gyedu-Blay Ambolley, has called out artistes who copy the skills and styles of Jamaican musicians but claim to be owners and kings of the dancehall music genre.

According to him, all the singers who claim to be monarchs of foreign genres should hang their heads in shame because they do not deserve to be crowned as such.

Speaking on Okay FM, he mentioned that he doesn’t blame the artiste alone but extends it to television and radio stations that promote such.
