Up-and-coming dancehall artiste KayyDyan is determined to become the next big female star in Jamaican music.
“I am very talented and beautiful, but I know it takes more than just looks and talent to be a star. It also takes hard work, dedication, and commitment. That’s why I put maximum effort into everything I do. Right now, I am working overtime to achieve my goals,” said the artiste.
She recently teamed up with veteran deejay Power Man to do a steamy remake of his 1990s hit single, ‘Stone’. The new version of the song which is titled ‘Stone Rematch’ was released on the ‘Art A Dancehall rhythm’ compilation album in August on the Britlake Records imprint. “When Power Man invited me to be a part of this project I didn’t hesitate. I am very grateful to him for the opportunity because, ‘Stone’, is one of the iconic songs in dancehall music,” said KayyDyan.
‘The Art A Dancehall rhythm’ also features songs from Penny IRIE, Joseph Stepper, Krusha, D Fancey, Pengadon, Pretty D and Fya Flexx.
KayyDyan is currently busy in the studios working on new projects. “In dancehall music, you have to stay at least one step ahead of the game; it’s a fast-paced business. I’m recording some new singles that I’m going to drop real soon. I’m also going to drop a few videos too,” she said.
KayyDyan given name Kelisha Green is a graduate of Papine High School. She launched her recording career in 2006 with the release of a single titled ‘Double Up’ on the Hyperactive Entertainment label.
