Noface Unknown hits number one
Dancehall artiste Noface Unknown has scored his first number-one hit with 'Tank Up', which soared to the pole position of the FIWI Choice Top Ten charts last weekend.
"Everything tank up, the thing fully tank up, the fans ah give me the energy and ah vote up the song, so it's a good look. The video has over 20,000 views in three weeks since it was uploaded. Mi Instagram tank up, mi Twitter tank up, the feedback crazy," he said.
In the meantime, the artiste is generating a lot of airplay on FM radio and in the streets with the single.
"The feedback has been incredible so far, crazy tweets, and feedback on social media, DJ Wayne, Garfield Hamilton, Troy McLean, FAME FM, SunCity Radio, the ting fully tank up," Noface Unknown said.
Noface Unknown has been using a mixture of Spanish phrases and Arabic greetings, like As-salamu alaykum, to 'pepper' his songs, winning a cult following online. Some church leaders have started to criticise his use of masks in his performances.
"The name Noface is symbolic to the direction I'm taking my career. This is not demonic. Noface, no ego, no doubt. Tank up! By summer, mi waan buss so mi can pay for my plastic surgery," he said, explaining his reason for using the moniker Noface Unknown.
Other singles to watch for include I Am the Chosen and Happy Like This.
