Afro dance hall artist GDogg Dagaati, hailing from the Upper West Region, has sparked controversy with his recent claim that his home region has more talent than the Northern Region of Ghana. In an interview with Hype TV, a popular online-based television station, GDogg boldly stated his opinion, setting off a debate that has caught the attention of music fans across the country.
During the interview, GDogg expressed his belief that the Upper West Region has been overlooked for too long in terms of recognition for the wealth of talent it possesses. He argued that the region has a unique culture and sound that sets it apart from other regions, and that its artists deserve more attention and support.
“I’m not saying that the Northern Region doesn’t have talent,” GDogg clarified. “But I believe that the Upper West Region has more, and we’re not getting the credit we deserve. We have so many amazing artists and musicians who are not being given a chance to shine.”
GDogg’s comments have drawn mixed reactions, with some fans and artists agreeing with his assessment, while others have pushed back against what they see as a divisive statement. Some have pointed out that the Northern Region has produced many notable musicians, including legends such as Amakye Dede and Bessa Simons.
However, GDogg’s supporters argue that his comments were not meant to denigrate other regions, but rather to draw attention to the unique talents and cultural offerings of the Upper West Region.
Regardless of the debate, GDogg’s statement has brought renewed attention to the music scene in the Upper West Region, and has encouraged more people to seek out and support the artists and musicians from this often-overlooked part of Ghana.
