G WHIZZ CHANGES NAME
Although he has been somewhat off the scene for some time,
dancehall artiste G Whizz is back and is now sporting a new moniker. The
artiste says he will now be performing under his birth name Garland
G Whizz told THE STAR that he decided to use his real name because he will now be focusing his attention on reggae and one-drop songs.
“It’s a new thing I’m taking on. I’m going to sing more reggae
and one-drop songs, so using Garland Rowe is a more mature name for
these kinds of songs that I’ll be singing,” G Whizz said.
He went on to say that he does not believe that this will impact
negatively on his career and that the first single under his new moniker
has been getting rave reviews.
“It nah go impact negatively on my career, trust me. Mi nah dash
way the name G Whizz, a it buss me, mi just a spice up di ting. I’m
taking things to another level. The first single called It Hurts Being in Love has been getting great response so far,” the artiste said.
Although there are some who have told the artiste that the name
change was ‘not a good move’, he says that there are even more who have
commended him on the new name and have told him that his birth name is
more suitable for the songs he is now focusing on.
“I’ve been on the scene since 2009 and now mi a pree the long
term side of mi career, so I’ll be doing more reggae songs instead of
dancehall. I started out singing, so now I’m going back to my roots.
Right now I’m just gonna be flooding the market with one-drop reggae
songs,” he said.
