Despite lupus fight, Spring Wata shares 'Roses'
Wednesday, May 10, marked the 14th annual observance of World Lupus Day.
Local entertainer Dalton Jackson, better known by his moniker 'Spring Wata', has had to endure economic and social hardships since being diagnosed with lupus in 2008, but refuses to give up.
Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body skin, joints, and/or organs.
Spring Wata, however, told THE WEEKEND STAR that he uses his health issue as motivation and inspiration for writing his music.
He is currently promoting his tear-jerker single, Roses, that was released under the Pstreet Recording label. The song is accompanied by an equally fitting music video.
"Give me Roses while I'm alive. Mi nuh want them when mi gone. Give thanks for life and the giver of life," he told THE WEEKEND STAR.
According to Spring Wata, his incredible upbeat attitude, unique vocals, great writing skills and his positive energy combine to make him one to watch out for in 2017.
He told THE WEEKEND STAR that Fantan Mojah called him on stage at Rebel Salute to perform Roses and the reception from the audience has given him more confidence to pursue his dream.
The song has since captured the attention of local disc jockeys and has led to Spring Wata receiving heavy airplay on local and abroad radio.
