Dancehall is one of the most popular genres in the Nigerian music industry that is overlooked, but all over the world. And especially in the United States and Jamaica, Dancehall continues to be popular and loved ferociously.

From Shabba Ranks, Beenieman, then Sean Paul, Yellowman, and then down to Vybz Cartel, Popcaan, and a host of new age Dancehall Artists, the Dancehall genre has been kept alive, and will continue to be loved by all their fans all over the world.

Even though a lot of Nigerians born in the 2000s don't really appreciate the genre, it used to have wide followings in 80s and 90s, and was quite popular at the time. It also inspired Nigerian Dancehall and reggae Artists like Patoranking, General pype, and a host of others, so much so that even circular musicians have jumped on beats with Dancehall sounds and killed it too. From Wizkid, to runtown, and even Burna Boy, each of them have done one or more songs in the Dancehall genre.

Will Dancehall get the popularity it used to have towards the end of the 20th century, or not?. Drop your comments on this and don't forget to like and share this post so others can contribute.
