Caracta pays tribute to women

Caracta - Contributed

Rising singjay Caracta pays tribute to women on his latest single 'Special'. The song is featured on the Beach House rhythm from Jamlink Recording.

It is the latest single from the 31-year-old, whose real name is Tafahee Campbell. Special tells the story about the values of a woman and how to accept women for what they are.

Raised in Drewsland, St Andrew, Caracta is a product of the inner city. His musical journey began in the mid-1990s when he was known as Strugglaz. The name was derived from the metaphoric reflection of his experiences while growing up. In spite of the negatives around him, his focus has always been about youth development through education and expansion of his musical talents to do just that.

made strides

Caracta made his recording debut in 2010 with the single, John Prophecy, (better known as It's the Youths). The song was produced by his father Caractacus Campbell, who operated the label Roaring Tone Production. John Prophecy was well received and topped the Richie B Jamaica Music Countdown Top 25 Reggae Singles chart. The track also made strides on the Hitz 92 FM Top 25 chart.

He recalled the impact John Prophecy had on his career. "That song gave me a good feedback in the music industry. I got a couple of shows and it opened some doors for my career," said Caracta.

Caracta describes the musical journey as challenging. "I have faced a lot of challenges and the road is not an easy one musically. However, this is something I enjoy doing and I don't plan to give up," said Caracta.

A former Kingston College student, Caracta lists Buju Banton, Luciano, Burning Spear, Beres Hammond and Sanchez among his musical influences.

His goal is to educate and motivate the youth through his music. He hopes that his songs can be a springboard for inspiration and hope. His other singles include Yuh Nuh Bad Mine and First Rule Of Hotness.
