Yogie Doggy Reconstructing The Sound Of Ghana Dancehall Music
Ace dancehall artiste known as Yogie Doggy back into the music world after over a decade behind the scenes and he's reconstructing the sound of Dancehall music.
Music in Ghana has really evolved over the years and it takes a great talent to comfortably merge in anytime they want to. Yogie Doggy, after over a decade, shows up into the music scene and merged in as if he never left. For the new age of Ghanaian dancehall lovers, you need to ask someone who is old enough to tell you more about the iconic Yogie Doggy.
I’ve said many times that getting off the music radar in Ghana and coming back gets tough especially when every song you released or got featured on back then remains a classic and people expect that standard from you. Yogie’s style of music might have experienced a slight change but that powerful voice still got that magic and spark!
He has released some singles since he got back but we just had 2 officially sent to us, and those 2 defines the Yogie Doggy now and before. Versatility is definitely a gift and transformation for him happens naturally. It’s hard for the new age Ghana music lovers to identify good contents unless they get recommendations from an artist who’s already dominating the mainstream.
This is where the biggest problem is, and legends like Yogie Doggy have to struggle their way through to get people listening to the great songs they have. A couple of weeks ago, he expressed his disappointment in some of the artists he knew back then who aren’t willing to tell people about his return and the new songs he’s coming up with. He, however, said Shatta Wale supported him any way he can since he decided to get into music again.
The good thing about his return is that he’s not following any trend and not imitating anyone’s style to fit in. He has developed his own style and even more appealing and refreshing to the ears. You’ll hear a bit of Demarco, Mavado and himself merging into one. This makes him sound unique! I must confess I love the new Yogie Doggy even more and I know his hard work will automatically draw new listeners to his songs.
Below are two songs which we believe define the old and new Yogie Doggy and it tells us that, he’s timeless when it comes to music. Dancehall just got reconstructed by a name we are very familiar with. Enjoy both songs below.
