The president of Shatta Movement Empire, Charles Nii Armah Mensah, professionally known as Shatta Wale has been honoured to lead the pride in this year’s Tropical House Cruises To Jamaica edition.
The Tropical House Cruises To Jamaica album which was released days ago is sad to take the world by storm. Produced by a collective that includes Contractor Music Group, Golden Child Records, Beatbopper Records, and Kohanim Records, the project is titled Tropical House Cruises to Jamaica: The Reggae Collector’s Edition.
Twenty-five tracks on the album features Capleton, Sizzla, Beenie Man, Vybz Kartel, Elephant Man, Don Yute, Mojo Morgan, Wayne Wonder, Singing Melody, Peetah Morgan, Tommy Lee Sparta, Skillibeng, Voicemail, Royce Da59 and others.
The concept of the album is to promote reggae music on the African Continent in an effort to broaden the market for the genre. Edwards notes that reggae album sales are down in the United States which is the largest market presently.
However, a growing love for dancehall, reggae and Jamaican culture on the African continent has created the right conditions for entering the African market. The love and popularity of dancehall which is a Jamaican-born genre of music attests to this.
