NEW VIDEO Lion D – Eyez Wide Open
New clip from rasta singer Lion D. Video by Peter Marvu, produced by Leo Bizzarri for Bizzarri Records.
Lion D (David Andrew Ferri) was born in London of an Italian mother and a Nigerian father and was raised in Pesaro, Italy, where he moved at a very early age with his mother.
Reggae helped him connect with the African side of his heritage he never knew. David lost contact with his Nigerian father after his Italian mother moved from his South London birthplace to her home country when he was 8 months old. As a young man he struggled with racism and despite being a gifted painter at school, had just a little interest in music until he heard reggae aged 17.
“Music is my school and my teacher. It’s everything. Music helped me build myself and grow myself. I keep the connection with Africa and my roots through the music”.
