Started doing reg or liking reg since I was a baby the first time I listened to reg I said this is what I want to do I want to be a singer and play music okay do do you have any person in particular that inspired you to do reg music yes

The first time I had Bob M the Uprising album that was it I was hooked from the from then on okay there’s an there’s a problem uh financial problem that usually comes with the regy artists that anyway to people that are doing reg music um have you Tred have you earned

Uh from reg music have I have I have you earned eared financially uh so far not really but what have earned is not money but I’ve earned a lot of respect friends people spiritualism get closer to God so rega music is more than money so the money will come later okay

Because there’s there’s an issue when it comes to different genders one who does danceold gets richer or one who does t afro beat or something gets richer than you guys and you know it derails very many artists to have reggy on their albums why did you decide strictly to do

Reg music and you know you’re doing it even live on stage uh with all the equipments it’s hard and expensive as Bob M said uh we do Spiritual music so we uh meditation music for us is not about money it’s about giving message it’s about the Creator praising God if

You’re a true Reg a person somebody tells you I give you $10 million to go and sing a song about sex or killing you’ll say no I’d rather have no money but stick to the principles of Spiritual music okay any any any problems any challenges you’ve faced in your journey

In reg music a lot of challenges first of all my family was totally against dreadlocks so always you must cut your hair every time they see you as a Holan drag adct yeah but all those things are not true but after the time has gone they’ve come to understand that Reg is

Spiritual music and it is the right music to play because it’s good for society you teach society and all that okay um according to you you spent very many years in this in this industry have you had any AR Coles and awards have you been nominated and who are those people
