Reggae's influence and its artists aren't confined or indigenous to Jamaica. Ghanian, Rocky Dawuni, is yet another sterling exception.
Touted as the Bob Marley of Ghana, Dawuni debuts in 1996 with the critically acclaimed The Movement, on Mesa/Bluemoon Records. A video of "What Goes Around" got considerable play across the States, climbing to #3 on the Reggae Video Chart, January 1997. A 1998 release, Crusade, on Aquarian/Who Dun It Records, features Dawuni's immense writing, arranging, and producing skills on every track. The first single "In Ghana," triggered by a well-done video, has achieved international play on both radio and television. Dawuni describes the song as a celebration of 40 years of Independence enjoyed by Ghana. ~ Andrew Hamilton, Rovi
