Unycorn's '18 & Ova' mashing up the place


Known for hits such as 'Never Been Touch' and 'Think Bout Me', multi-talented artiste-turned-producer Unycorn has returned to the dancehall space with an infectious number, '18 & Ova'.

Aptly named, the collaborative effort, featuring Tiana, is produced by Donovan McMurray and Garfield Stewart, and speaks to the act of paedophilia and condemnation of its immoral practitioners.

Questioned as to how he got the inspiration for the song, the deejay explained that he got the idea fafter observing the surfeit of minors in society being abused and exploited for sexual favours by unethical adults.

"The song is based off my own observations. as an entertainer, we are not just public figures but also role models, whether we like it or not. Lots of people, especially children, emulate, us so we have to be morally responsible and help with their protection against certain degenerate acts. Since everyone loves music, I decided to make a song that people can enjoy while still imparting a positive message," Unycorn said.

The collaboration has been enjoying premium rotation on FM airwaves and popular entertainment spots. According to Unycorn, he's happy with the progress and, based on the feedback, an aggressive promotional campaign is afoot heading into the festive season. An official video was also premiered last weekend via CVM Television's 'OnStage' to rave reviews.

Since emerging on the local music scene,Unycorn has carved out his own niche, producing some of the biggest hits the genres has seen including, Rasta Run Di World by Spragga Benz, Beenie Man's Swing It Away, Think Bout Me with Macka Diamond and Bounty Killer's Cross Road.
