RANKING: Shatta Wale tops it all, StoneBwoy; one of the best – BEST DANCEHALL ACT OF ALL TIME IN THE WORLD 2016 – Samini omitted in the list…


Whether they’re Jamaican megastars or under-the-radar dancehall artists quietly putting out new songs – the top dancehall bands on this list have enough of a fan base to sell out music halls and theaters around the world.

While dancehall started in the late 1970s in Jamaica as an offshoot of reggae, the genre saw a new wave of popularity come in when current crossover artists like Rihanna and M.I.A. introduced elements of dancehall to a broader audience of hip hop and R&B fans.

Those who have fallen in love with the genre through current songs can go back and rediscover top dancehall artists – like Yellowman and Eek-a-Mouse – who are must-listens for any fan of dancehall.

This represents a look at greatest dancehall bands of all time – across many decades – since the most famous dancehall artists ever are listed, and the order is decided by actual fans of the best dancehall music.

Ghana was lucky to have Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale but the other acclaimed Dancehall Acts were missing from the list. Well you might say it’s unauthentic but where 2 or more opinions reach an agreed consensus   then, we can have some truth in it… Judge yourself.
