Guinness Sounds of Greatness (GSOG), which started in 2008, returned bigger and better to launch the 15th iteration of the prolific dancehall clash competition on Thursday (May 18).

Di Lot Restaurant and Bar, located at 33 Constant Spring Road in St Andrew, came alive for the launch, as the biggest and ‘baddest’ dancehall event of all time. With the aim of preserving dancehall clash culture, Guinness started GSOG, which has become a notable event on the scene.

Now in their 15th year, Guinness has upped the ante and decided to focus on the next generation, who will go head-to-head for a chance at winning J$1.5 million in cash and prizes and a year-long bragging rights.

Hosted by Ashley Miller and GSOG nex gen ambassador Fabian ‘Fyahman’ Morris, the energy on Thursday was nothing short of good vibes.

With a great turnout of influencers, dancehall veterans and a show stopping performance by dancehall artiste, 10Tik, it is safe to say that patrons cannot wait to see what else Guinness has in store this year.
