Real V.I. wants to be successful
Recording artiste Real V.I. has shown what it means to defy the odds by being the first dancehall artiste to emerge on the scene in a wheelchair.
Though his situation may seem unfavourable to some, the artiste shares that he is poised and ready to make his name nonetheless.
"Persons may look at me and think I allow my situation to get me down, but, on the contrary, I don't. I embrace my situation, and after seeing that there are people who were born this way. I am grateful that I at least got a chance to experience what being able to walk feels like," he said.
The Seaview Gardens resident who gives credit to Bounty Killer for his musical contribution, has been doing music from as early as age 14 and has had the opportunity to record for legends such as Junior Reid, Sugar Minott and Black Scorpio Records.
The artiste is currently promoting three singles, Successful, Dem Nuh Known and Darkness To Light, which were all produced by EarthSource Records.
The singles are available on all major digital media outlets through EarthSource Records, who serves as his exclusive representative worldwide.
"I recently shot and released the video for Successful and since then, it has racked up over 500,000 views through online streaming. My supporters have always been the drive behind my music, they believe in me just as much as I believe in myself; and, as an artiste, it is my duty to keep them entertained while teaching them at the same time," he said.
Real V.I. is currently gearing up to take his promotion international in a bid to achieve greater musical success.
