Jahazeil scores with positive music
Jahazeil Myrie, son of Grammy winner Buju Banton, could just get the big break he deserves this year. His strong defence of positive music in schools is set to bear fruits.
Come this Monday, January 30th, deejay Shaka Pow and his Fully Bright team are set to hit schools, promoting his latest “Fully Bright” song laced with a positive message.
The first school, St John’s Road Primary, will be hosting deejay Shaka Pow for 30 minutes during their devotional exercise.
In an interview with Reggae-Vibes, Jahazeil sounds off with satisfaction to this Fully Bright initiative.
“I want to congratulate deejay Shaka Pow for making the right step into our schools. Having a Fully Bright initiative is a great way of contributing to the importance of education.”
“We need more people who are determined enough in saying to our principals, it’s time for more positive and inspirational songs.”
“I myself have been batting for positivity for years on my musical path. And, I have seen where Prime Minister of Jamaica, Andrew Holness, keeps reminding entertainers to stay within the boundaries of positivity, which creates the right values and attitudes.”
Last year, Jahazeil’s song “Hold On” was highly promoted as one of the best songs for promoting positive attitudes in schools across Jamaica. The song, produced by ace promoter Delly Ranks, had the following lines:
Don’t let depression break you down
Always smile when trouble is around
In life you should be positive
No matter the time of the day
For in life nothing don’t come easy
So when The times get rough
You just face it
We all be ok, just trust me
Just believe when I tell you
Hold on, Hold On
Journey may be long, Hold On…
Jahazeil, born in Havendale, Kingston, attended Liberty Academy. He released his first song, “No More”, a production of Markus his sibling. Other songs are “Hold On” ((2018), “God Alone” (2019), “Keep Strong” (2020), “Left To Right” (2021), “Born Star” (2022), and his “Message EP” (2022).
