Nigy Boy Rocks the Continent

On a high with the Rvssian-produced song, ‘Continent’, Nigy Boy visited Jamaica in mid-February for a round of promotional dates in his native Montego Bay and Kingston.

The New York-based singer’s breakthrough single, done on the infectious Dutty Money ‘riddim’, has over one million views on YouTube and is a dance-jammer in the tri-state area and Jamaica.

Nigy Boy, 23, is visually impaired. During his visit to Jamaica, he visited the Salvation Army for The Blind where he was once a student. Like many Jamaican artists who live overseas, making a mark in the home of dancehall/reggae is critical for him.

“I would say my trip to Jamaica was more fulfilling than I could have ever imagined. Being welcomed home by the people of Montego Bay was one of the most heartwarming experiences of my trip, and being confirmed for Reggae Sumfest was an unexpected surprise for me,” he said. “Having a presence in Jamaica is vital. With the support of the home crowd, anything is possible.”

A political science major at Stony Brook University in New York, Nigy Boy started recording music four years ago. ‘You And I’ and ‘Superwoman’ (dedicated to his mother) were his initial songs, followed by ‘Lover Not a Fighter’.

In terms of live shows, he has been opening act for Dexta Daps and has done spot dates in New York. Reggae Sumfest, scheduled for Montego Bay in July, will be his biggest gig to date.

“As for me performing at Reggae Sumfest, the fans should just look forward for a performance that they will remember for ages to come. And as for what else is on the horizon, there are a lot of things going on at the moment, so the people should just look forward to a lot more from me for 2024 and beyond,” he said.
