Royal has a unique style- he sings and even raps. Recently, he’s stepped outside his comfort zone in Reggae dancehall, delving into other genres of music, including Afro dancehall.

 “Music is what I do as I am from a griot family. Starting from my grandparents down to my mum and dad, all are griots, so am a griot. “Afro dancehall is the trending genre, so I have to get into it and make my fans happy.”
