‘Sweet Eeh’, by the Toronto-based duo of DaJourney and Sone G, won Collab of The Year at the Sterling Gospel Awards, held October 7 at Swallowfield Chapel in Kingston, Jamaica.
Released in May 2022, the Afro Beats/dancehall track is produced by DaJourney, who is originally from West Kingston.
“It’s an amazing feeling, doing the type of work I do and in a season as this, to know it’s been recognized is a great feeling. It’s definitely a push in the right direction,” he said. “I’m elated and motivated to do more and better, and receiving it from Jamaica is comforting, knowing this my country and my work is been recognized there.”
‘Sweet Eeh’ is his second collaboration with Sone G who hails from Clarendon in central Jamaica. He recently relocated to Toronto after several years living in South Florida.
According to DaJourney, “The message in ‘Sweet Eeh’ is that we serve an on-time God. Based on all the negatives that’s out there to lead us away from the truth, we still declare God is sweeter than anything that has been presented, and we wanna let this be known that there are strong ones here still, sending the message across the world from the church to the prison,” said DaJourney.
Singer Johnmark Wiggan was the big winner at the seventh staging of the Sterling Gospel Awards. He won Male Vocalist of the Year and Breakout Artist of The Year.
