“I was really excited in joining the army and the prospect of meeting new people was great. But, there was a void that needed to be filled in my life. So, I went through each day thinking about what more I needed out of life.

“And, there was the answer staring me in the face because there was Buju and I suddenly wanted to get more involved in the music. He was having hits across the world, even winning a grammy award.”

“Then, one morning I woke up and decided to be a record producer.

“I am going for greatness, just like my uncle Buju. I saw his dynamism when he performed at two great shows,  Buju Long Walk to Freedom Concert at the National Stadium, Kingston and the Bahamas.
