... Deejay says no more war

After almost 10 years as a hardcore deejay, delivering some of dancehall's biggest hits and being involved in lyrical feuds with several artistes, Aidonia appears to have had a spiritual awakening and is now on a new musical journey.

The entertainer, who donned a military-themed ensemble with Rastafarian embellishments at the recently held Reggae Sumfest, says he is now a different man and that the contentious persona associated with him is now in the past.

"At this stage in my life, I am trying to teach the youths that we don't need anybody else to venture down that warpath because there is nothing good at the end. Right now, we dealing with love and unity. It's about making music to feed yourself, feed your family and your friends, uplift yourself and everybody. I have no time to war with anybody," a release sent to THE STAR yesterday stated.

According to Aidonia, he has been grappling with his spirituality for sometime, but it was the birth of his son that was the crescendo for change. He added that his spiritual transition will be gradual, highlighting that he has already purged meat from his diet.

Following his revelation, Aidonia has released the conscious effort, One Heart, which has been enjoying premium rotation on the radio airwaves. He is also gearing up to shoot music videos for Coco Powda and Love Off You Gyal.

In the coming weeks, he's also expected to roll out his apparel line for the summer. The collection, dubbed 1Voice or 1V, will cater to both males and females with a line for children to follow.
