Shabako - A Breath of Fresh Air

If you are tired of hearing the same old tune and need a breath of fresh air, you couldn’t find a better person than Shabako.

Now, even if you are a thousand miles away, one trickle of his vocals will whet your appetite with first-class music. And when he breaks, the memories keep ringing in your ears. Talk about substance and Shabako has it locked. Talk about impact and you are forced to cry out for more.
So, what is so special about Shabako? The girls will tell you. It’s more than just good looks. It is the music that won’t go away.

“I grew up with problems, like any average youth in most rural communities, hoping for some miracle to happen soon. And when the journey seemed unbearable, there was that feeling to give up. But, you know something. There is a five-letter word called FAITH. And, believe me, Faith, along with hard work and determination, can move mountains.”

The Spanish Town-born Shabako, who spent most of his early life in Darliston, Westmoreland, was raised by his grandmother.

“Grandma believed in God and wanted me to believe that hardships are not meant to be constant because prayers could transform failures into successes.”

This led to the recording of ‘Faith’, a powerful song that comes from the bowels of his experiences.

“‘Faith’ is my breakthrough song based on my personal experiences. The song was released in November 2021, enhanced by a music video on December 12th, which coincided with my birthday that same time.”

“Another song, ‘Burdens’, also deals with life experiences and one which has resonated well with my thousand of fans,” Shabako shares.

Born Dwayne Stewart, the singjay now living in St. Thomas, has released some ten songs including ‘Prayer’, ‘Faith’, ‘Survivor’, ‘Cold World’, ‘Success Street’, ‘Fight the Fight’, ‘Born for This’, ‘Tension’ and ‘Burdens’.

One of his most memorable experience is performing at Popcaan Uruly Fest in December 2023.
