Dancehall is a genre of Jamaican popular music that originated in the late 1970s. Initially, dancehall was a more sparse version of reggae than the roots style. Today, the genre is not only embraced in Jamaica but also all around the world.
In Kenya for example, the matatu culture has embraced the dancehall genre, with many exquisite buses showing love to the genre by playing dancehall inside the buses as well as drawing graffiti art featuring different Dancehall artists.
Apart from matatus, deejays in the country have also embraced the genre with most of them playing dancehall mixes to get the crowd hyped up.
