Nuh Skylarking from Keznamdi - Reggae artiste returns with dancehall smash
Following the release of his song Champion, which peaked at No.1 on the iTunes reggae charts, reggae artiste Keznamdi is back with his latest hard-hitting single Nuh Skylarking.
The song, an ode to self reliant, hard-working, and ingenious people features Keznamdi delivering riveting and witty word play over an infectious '90s,-styled' dancehall beat. On this track, the 24-year-old Rastafarian has shed his usually calm and soothing 'neo-roots' delivery, instead opting for the hardcore dancehall style as he aims to foster a more direct connection with his Jamaican audience. His entry line on the first verse 'every mickle mek a muckle', a noted Jamaican proverb, is testament to Keznamdi playing to the Jamaican ear.
"I surprised myself on this one, so I know a lot of people are going to be surprised because I am sure they never expect to hear me like this, but this is the beauty of music for me. You have to be versatile and able to excite and entertain people while keeping the message positive. I am really looking forward to the reception of this one," said Keznamdi
Nuh Skylarking is produced by Jason 'ZJ Ice' Carr and will be premiered on radio stations locally and overseas this week. A visual to support the single was recently shot in downtown Kingston and will hit screens this weekend. The single will be available for download on all digital platforms next Friday. This song has been added to his performance set and fans can look forward to his first performance of Nuh Skylarking at Paradise Lost, Jamaica's first EDM festival on March 10.
