Medda Wak wants to see ‘exceptional parents’
Reggae artiste Medda Wak is showing his commitment to his country and music with his debut single titled Exceptional Parents.
The single was officially released on May 12, Mother's Day.
The single was performed and named from the theme of the 2016 staging of the Family Court's Parenting Expo.
"I was working there that day, and I came up with the idea to write a song to outline issues faced by children as parents' struggle to actively play their role," said the artiste, whose given name is Delwin Delgado Eaton.
He added: "Parents aren't actively playing their role. The absence of a parent, whether it is a father or mother, can have a negative impact on the nation's youth. As a result, parents need to meditate and regroup in an effort to be able to offer encouragement and upliftment in homes."
Exceptional Parents, produced under the Box Lunch Productions imprint, was engineered by Boxy and recorded at Tads International Studio.
Medda Wak attended Berwick Primary School before going on to St Mary's College in Above Rocks, St Catherine.
He developed a love for music, and began to work on his craft. He obtained six CXC subjects and went straight into the construction industry.
While working with Howell's Construction and Metal Fabrication, he gathered skills in welding, tiling and masonry before joining the Jamaica Constabulary Force in 2010.
The artiste, who is still a cop, is currently preparing for the release of other singles, including Zoso, Stigma and Wasteman.
