Omari Banks & Duane Stephenson link up on “Di System Set Away”

“Do you know what your fighting for.. Think you’ll even the score.. Are you willing to start back from zero.. This system set along time bout here”. Those powerful words aren’t part of a speech addressing the present worldwide injustices, but rather are the poignant lyrics from Omari Banks “System Set”.

Featuring reggae recording artist Duane Stephenson, Omari’s “System Set” is befitting of today’s climate, yet is a story as old as time. “Di system set away.. Schemes and lies dem try fi sell us.. Take us back to the gallows and try fi sell us.. Try fi poison “. Speaking on the inspiration of these powerful lyrics, the former professional athlete turned reggae singer explained “I was driving and listening to the radio and there was a program where people were expressing there discontent with what was going on in the world regarding Finance and equal opportunity for all nationalities and i thought to myself that we really should have progressed more as a human race in 2016 than we have.

Some of the issues we are facing now are in-part largely many of the same issues people died for years ago.. I believe we have got to take a stance as human beings, one which benefits all people and not one which seeks to benefits just our National or personal desires. The system i know has been set hundreds of years ago but its up to the people of good moral consciousness to push for that equality it is only option lest hate and division is the expected fate.”

Resonating in the hearts of music lovers, “System Set” is steadily gathering traction on worldwide airwaves, while the video who was recently filmed in Jamaica shot by Kerrin “Kerro” McLean and Italy by renowned video director Mario Parruccini and co-produced by Marta Federici has received over seven thousand views in less than one week.
