The new school year should see Jamaican students singing a different tune. So believes Push Hitz Records’ reggae/dancehall artiste Alkamis, as he prepares to put the finishing touches on his soon-to-be released Students single. The song, he said, is just a reminder to youngsters of the path they should follow.
“As the name suggests, it has something to do with the students. We a oppose and a propose, trying to get them on the right track. Trying to get them to know what them supposed to do and what them nuh supposed to do”, said Alkamis.
The song touches on topics that are seen on a regular basis in high schools throughout the island.
“It’s about things that we see every day from the youth in the schools. We touch the bleaching topic, the cellular phone topic, the pinch leave an inch, and even the economy,” he shared.
Alkamis believes the song will be positively received as it is catchy and its message is one that everyone can relate to.
“Students, the nation need yuh – careful how yuh wheel and tun. Certain things yuh a do yuh doan need to, serious though yuh think it fun. It goes something like that, it’s very catchy,” said Alkamis.
The singjay who has found favour with reggae fans on the European scene is ready to step up his game and make his voice heard in Jamaica. Among Alkamis’ previous releases are Can’t Stop Loving You, Faith Inside, Badmind and Rain On Me. All have been positively received in the United States and European reggae market having good support from radio stations.
Students will open the ears of the young and old to his music with its uplifting, informative and educational content.
