The Guinness Sounds of Greatness sound clash competition is back!
And, after a yearlong hiatus, the Guinness team – led by brand manager Lyshon Davis, have hit the ground running to provide us with the dancehall spectacle we love so much.
’Tis the 13th staging, and there’s a million-dollar cash prize up for grabs.
Guinness is reuniting a group of classic and popular local sounds for supercharged musical clashes in the Guinness Sounds of Greatness (GSOG) competition.
This year’s staging of the premiere sound clash will be launched virtually with a pre-recorded undertaking on Tuesday, May 11, at Blueprint Studios.
Though this recording was streamed on May 21, the first sound clash (already recorded) goes live this Friday.
GSOG host Badda Bling spilt the beans on this year’s staging of the battle of the sound systems.
This includes the selection of the first round of duellers, Di Unit Sound and Fire Explosion Sound.
Other popular sounds such as Road Karma, High Grade International, Rich Squad, Naz Gurl Power, Nuh Grain Sound, and Black Blunt will also vie for the million-dollar cash prize, and, inevitable bragging rights.
The competitors will be judged by Ricky Trooper, Keith Walford, and Admiral Bailey, and the voting process will be done by the three judges, who make the final decision.
The judges will vote on stage presence, song selection and creativity.
