According to the deejay who is also promoting a new single City Lights, the road to success has not been easy.
“After getting that major highlight at Sting I felt that it would be smooth sailing because everybody knows my talent and see that me a bad artiste. However that’s not how Jamaica works, you hardly find people who ride for the youths. You will bleach at the studio every day and night and no rhythm to record on and when you finally get one single the radio stations are not playing your music,” he said.
The artist hopes his latest effort City Lights will bring him closer to his dreams of becoming a successful commercial act.
“Dancehall was born in the inner city and City Lights basically shine a light on all inner cities. Everybody can relate to this one and it has melody and a groove you
can move to. Tiffany Records is backing this project full hundred and let’s see if we can turn this summer up, ” he said.
Likkle Dainjah is also batting for the music industry to pay attention to artist development.
“Do more for young artists because it is impossible for the same crop of artists to sustain the industry forever. Right now am looking to go to Canada and my shows look good so far because they value youth. In Jamaica we need to value our youth more and don’t wait until foreign pick us up, “he said.
As for his clashing days, the deejay says he is open to lyrical confrontation if rivals are worthy of his time. However, his main focus is to make a positive impact on the music industry.
