ITALIAN/NIGERIAN REGGAE DANCEHALL SINGJAY (IT)
"Music’s always been my school and my teacher, it’s everything to me.
Simple as that.
All the reggae I’ve been listening to through all these years really raised me and helped me build myself musically, as I always wanted to listen carefully and
absorb that type of vibe. And, by doing so, I managed to keep Jamaican
culture in tune with my African roots as well”
