Profit Revelation, hoping to put a dent on violence, has teamed up with rastafarian singer Ras Oney, releasing a song titled, Crime Free Jamaica.
“Profit Revelation will always be against crime and violence, so the battle for Peace will be an ongoing one. Hence, every now and then, expect Profit Revelation to pop up on the scene with a song to counteract violence.
“My brethren Ras Oney is also on the same battleground on this peace campaign.”
Ras Oney, who lost one of his arms years ago, believes that Crime must be defeated.
“We cannot have prosperity in any situation where innocent lives, especially children, are taken; we need to cry out for Peace every single day,” Ras Oney says.
Profit Revelation explains, “I began to write the song having heard that a returning resident had been robbed, murdered and the criminals bent on burning her body.
“I took the idea of a song to Ras Oney who agreed to step in and the rest was history.”
Profit Revelation campaign for Peace started with the release of Gun Dawg, a song which became a hit in Spanish Town and surrounding communities. Others include ‘Madda Band yu Belly” and “World War Three”. He has also appeared in “Too Cold”, a video which features the actions of criminals and their imprisonment.
Profit Revelation born Barrington Campbell, grew up in St. Catherine, Jamaica.
“I became interested in music, listening to veterans, like Brigadeer Jerry and Jose Wales. I started writing conscious lyrics from the beginning and was introduced to my first recording studio by a friend named ” Roach” from Tower Hill, St. Andrew.”
He got a big break for his song, “Eat What We Grow, Grow What We Eat”, which is used by the Ministry of Agriculture to promote self-reliance in Jamaica.
He had performed on a number of Agricultural shows, including Denbigh in Clarendon.
Most of his music comes off his own Trying Youth Production imprint.
