No female act deserves to be ‘Dancehall Queen’ – Shegah

The battle and debate about who reign supreme when it comes to the different genres of music in the country have no end in sight.

Hiplife, rap and dancehall have all had their fair share of battles, debates and beefs as to who is the king.

Recently female Dancehall artistes Kaakie and MzVee were embroiled in a beef with each calling claim to the crown for ‘Dancehall Queen’ of Ghana. They went further to release songs taking shots at each other.

Female Dancehall artiste, Shegah, formerly known as Shegeh Styla of the defunct group Triple M, believes no female act in Ghana currently deserves to be called ‘Dancehall Queen’.

Shegah, who says she is the “godmother” when it comes to the genre, in an interview with Lexis Bill on Drive Time on Joy FM said none of the female acts have worked enough to be given the title.

“Since I am the godmother, I am indeed the one who should be able to determine who the ‘Dancehall Queen’ of Ghana is but I will not because I have not seen enough to crown anybody,” she said.

To buttress her point, the dancehall act noted that for someone to be called a queen, they should battle openly.  

“All the ladies in dancehall are contributing to the development of the art form. To be a queen is not just the music because somebody may have even written the song.

“If you want to be a queen, let’s give all the ladies microphones and put them on stage so they battle, the ‘Queen’ will then emerge,” Shegah said.

Shegah recently signed a juicy record deal, rumoured to be worth millions with entertainment record label, Magic Records.
