Promising and fast-rising Ghanaian dancehall artiste, J.Derobie who won the hearts of music lovers with his hit single, ‘Poverty’ has bragged that he’s the new face of Ghana’s dancehall music.
This is in reaction to the criticisms that he doesn’t look at a musician who is into dancehall genre kind of music.
According to him, the perception that all dancehall acts must look unkempt and act rowdy is in poor taste and must be erased from the minds of Ghanaians.
Speaking in an interview with NY DJ on Y102.5FM’s Ryse N Shyne show, J Derobie said;
People say I don’t look like a dancehall artiste but I just feel I am a new look to them. This is a different person. Dancehall comes in different ways and I am one of them
I am not going to change from me because I do dancehall and people expect me to look a certain way. I portray the other side of what other dancehall artistes should look like
Pressing on, J. Derobie however noted that he leaves his calm nature at the entrance of every show or performance he is billed for.
When I mount stages, it is a different situation altogether. I am not my calm self at all. The music and crowd is something that drives me
