Vypa riding on a high
Dancehall singjay Vypa said he is working to leave his mark on the reggae/dancehall industry.
The entertainer who recently performed at the Jamrock International Festival in Almaya, Mexico is currently in India promoting several of his recently released tracks.
Among them are Tun Up Inna Dis. Officially released late last year, the track he said has been getting good review from its listeners.
"It's a really good track that is full of vibes. The lyrics and the beat are contagious and will have its listeners dancing in no time. I am really confident that both the single and the video will give me the breakthrough that I am seeking," he said.
The singjay told THE STAR that he is still basking in the positive response that he received from his fans in Mexico.
"Mexico was really a good look. The show was close to the Christmas season and the audience was really impressed with my music. It's really a good feeling to know that reggae music is much appreciated in the international counties," he said.
Vypa, given name Glenford Goode, hails from St Thomas. His entry into the entertainment scene came years ago when he began hanging around sound systems in his community.
"I began freestyling and then gradually began performing at events in the parish. Soon after I was making connections and performing in other countries. I put in a lot of work and it is now paying off," he said.
The entertainer is currently preparing to release several singles such as Million Dollar Man, and Munchie Bounce, a collaboration with Bravo from Ravers Clavers.
