Jahazeil, son of international dancehall act Buju Banton, was on edge last night when three Jamaicans, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, Elaine Thompson-Herah and Shericka Jackson took their marks in the Women’s 100 metres finals in Eugene, Oregon.
And, what a glorious night it was for the green, gold and black flag country which never ceases to amaze the world.
It was not just another 1, 2, 3 sweep of medals, but Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce 10 .67 seconds is a championship record.
Jackson came in second with a time of 10.73 with Thompson -Herah 10.81.
Jahazeil, who has not been short of producing songs of motivation says , “Congrats girls, you are truly magnificent.
I just love to see my fellow Jamaicans doing extremely well on the tracks because results like these motivate the entire nation.
“What these three females have done is a living testament that each of us can achieve our goals through hard work.
“It wasn”t by chance when I released one of my most recent song, “Born Star”. I wanted Jamaicans to know that within each of us is stardom, but we have to find where this is hidden.
” Never ever allow criticisms to get the best of your life. Just put aside the negatives and move towards your goals. And, should you stumble five times, don’t quit. It is part of growth and preparation for greater things in life.”
Jahazeil’s latest project is a song titled “Load.”
“Many people are undergoing stress and have no one to talk to about it. I am identifying with these people and to let them know there is a way forward.”
The deejay is also preparing to launch his First EP come September, 2022. This will be a compilation of some five tracks, all of which are new.
Jahazeil, born in Kingston, attended Liberty Academy. He got his first break in music with No More a song produced by his sibling Marcus in 2015. Other songs include, Left To Right, Keep Strong and At My Door a combination with Spragga Benz.
