Dashocca Targets the International Market

Only the gods could have predicted that what began in earnest as a choral music calling in church as far back as 2005 would one day turn into a fully-fledged dancehall career for ‘Dashocca’ (real name Eric Gasa).

Fast forward to a decade and a couple of years later and Dashocca is definitely making his presence felt and is one of the artists out there pioneering that original dancehall sound on the continent.
“The turning point for my career was the year 2015 when I released a track called *Badman ah Greater* which was well received almost everywhere. The dancehall genre is well appreciated across the globe, something of which, after 9 years of being part of this industry, I can say with a degree of certainty”, said the dancehall/reggae artist.

The musician’s career has been on a steady rise since that fateful day in 2015 when he was one of the lucky few local artists chosen to perform at Busy Signal’s show.
 “I’ve had the honour of sharing the same stage with internationally-recognized Jamaican dancehall powerhouse Busy Signal when he came to Zimbabwe for the very first time (2015). Something which thrust me into the limelight virtually overnight! Since that very show, my career has been on an upward trend and I hope it will continue until I reach those dizzy heights”, said Dashocca. 

Apart from working on a number of singles slated for release in the coming weeks, Dashocca is also looking forward to more regional and international collaborations --- which will naturally put his name out there as one of the best voices to come out of Southern Africa.
“I am looking forward to putting out more music this year and also go about attracting more collaborations. I am anticipating collabos with the likes of Shatta Movement from Ghana and Stone Bwoy, among others.
“My stable *Loyalty over Royalty* has been branding and making sure that for this year, 2019,  we have more endorsement deals and international collaborations, so there’s so much to look forward to. My immediate goal is however to shoot more visuals for my fanbase to know how I really look like because I have found out that most of them know my music but not my face. At the end of the day it is all about taking my brand out there and that is my focus for 2019”, said the dancehall artist.
