Up-and-coming artiste Yaksta Carvanie is thrilled with the tremendous response he has been getting for his single, Workers Anthem.

It is safe to say Yaksta Carvanie is out to make an imperishable name for himself as Workers Anthem embodies the raw realities of the working man and undoubtedly makes it clear that their hustle matters and a better life is just beyond the hill.

With its catchy dancehall beat, relatable and conscious lyrics, this single, released off his EP, Stoic Torture - a unique blend of reggae and dancehall beats - released on March 10 of this year, is bound to be an anthem that withstands time.

ideal conditions

From St Mary, Yaksta Carvanie is no stranger to the hardships of life. Having four siblings and growing in less-than-ideal conditions with limited finances despite a strong and dedicated single mother, he found his solace in writing music.

He would often find himself immersed in his thoughts, writing lyrics throughout the night to elude his difficulties.

It is no wonder he was able to perfect his skills and put out a single that not only speaks to the 'struggle' and 'hustling' to stay afloat.

It is a single with a powerful, encouraging and effective message.

"I am music incarnate and I've given up on avoiding my destiny," the artiste said.
