Bursting into the upper stratum of dancehall stardom isn't by any means an easy feat, however, rising dancehall star, Razunga, is one of the few new artistes who has established a foot-hold.

Blessed with an abundance of creativity, lyrical potency, motivation and humility, the May Pen, Clarendon-based artiste's rise to the top is truly underway.

Razunga, whose debut music video Gyal Alone had its recent premiere on Suzie Q's Video Alley, sailed to number one on CVM's popular music video platform Hitlist.

"After the video's premiere on Video Alley, we drop it off at CVM on a Friday, and by the following Monday, it was rotating on Hitlist at number five. Within the next three weeks it peaked at number one," said Razunga.

Ucal Pinnock, a member of Razunga's management team, told The Starthat the video was shot in Clarendon and the responses have been tremendous. He noted that with the video still rotating on Hitlist, RE TV and MDTV, the audio has began to pick up significant tractions from local and international radio stations.

"Gyal Alone is doing well. And after some eight to nine weeks the video is still featuring on Hitlist, while the single is having a searing run on IRIE FM, ZIP and other stations in the US, Canada and Trinidad," Pinnock asserted.

An upbeat Razunga, while basking in the successes of the video and single, said that he is already in the studio working on follow-up hits to enhance his credibility. The focus, he said, is now to replicate this in the international dancehall market.

The artiste said fans can look forward to a number of new tracks including Poverty, Africa Await, Jah Guide Us, Bloody City and others.
