Elorm Beenie named the 1st released Ghanaian riddim — JMJ Baby

Award winning Producer, JMJ Baby, who has produced major artistes like Samini, Stonebwoy, Kaakie, Obrafour, 4X4 amongst others has disclosed on Hitz 103.9fm that Elorm Beenie was the one who actually named the 1st Ghanaian riddim he (JMJ) produced – known as the “Trigger Riddim”.

The “Trigger Riddim” produced in (late) 2008 and officially released in 2009 according to standing history is Ghana’s 1st produced Reggae/Dancehall Riddim. The issue sparked varied debates on social media days ago so King Lagazee invited JMJ on the show to set the records straight.

According to JMJ, the ace Ghanaian Publicist, “Elorm Beenie, has contributed largely to the Ghanaian Reggae/Dancehall industry and you can’t write Ghanaian Reggae/Dancehal history without him. He got me introduced to the riddim culture thing and how it’s done (in Jamaica, the Caribbean). He was the one who even promoted the project released in 2009. Until I met Samini, Stonebwoy & Elorm Beenie, I didn’t really know much about Dancehall.”

“Those days I would be in the studio and Elorm Beenie would bring records for Stonebwoy. So he keeps coming with the records and dude was so passionate about the job. Samini finished his version of the riddim and was on his way to fly out, by then Stonebwoy was with me in the studio and I could tell he was hungry to jump on the riddim. So I put him on, then Iwan and others also came on. Those days it was few DJs who knew about it or in support of his riddim thing. And gradually it picked up where Iwan got on. And a lot of artistes came on that I didn’t even know about. Elorm kept updating me on new Reggae/Dancehall records and it all came to shape this whole movement. People like Elorm Beenie, Samini and Stonebwoy contributed a lot to growing this riddim culture,” JMJ further explained.
