Dancehall artiste Ffurious is not pleased about the way his home parish of St Mary has been portrayed as the mecca of obeah in several songs done by other dancehall artistes.
“I don’t love the songs that some artistes are singing about my parish, St. Mary is where I am from. It’s one of the most peaceful little parishes in Jamaica. It is also a place where many great reggae dancehall icons come from including Capleton, Beres Hammond and Lady Saw. Why didn’t they sing about that? Why sing about the negatives and not the positive?
“As a Rasta man I don’t deal negativity, I put a fire on anything that’s unclean. Rasta deals with consciousness we are not here to lead the youths down the wrong path. Righteousness is the ultimate.”
The firebrand entertainer who’s a protégé of dancehall legend Capleton is currently promoting his latest single which is titled ‘Rasta Goodness’. The song which was produced by Kanpe Tof Record/Greatxproductions was released in April.
“I’m pleased with the response that this single is receiving; it’s getting a lot of support from DJs all over the globe and it’s also gaining traction in the streets. The music video for it was released last month and it’s streaming well on YouTube,” said Ffurious. The hardworking entertainer is also promoting a single titled ‘Going Up’ which was released in March.
