Over the past weekend, fathers were acknowledged through the various social media sites, from facebook to twitter, with dedicated poems, music, pictures and various anecdotes in honor of “Father’s Day”.
In the midst of the worldwide phenomena that is 2014 FIFA World Cup, England national football team professional footballer Raheem Sterling took to twitter to reflect on his departed father “Happy Father’s Day dad 17 years gone but not forgotten, @itsJahmiel real fathers touch me, love you dad, everything I do is for you”. Born in Kimgston, Jamaica, Raheem plays as a winger for Premier League club Liverpool and the England national team.
Having just released the video for “Real Fathers”, Jahmiel is elated that the message is heard. “This is why I make music, to touch people, and I am happy to know that the song brought Raheem some comfort” says the young singer
Produced by billboard topping producer Notnice, “Real Father” on the Devotion Riddim, the single was received with critical acclaim and has gradually made it;s on way onto various reggae charts.
Filmed on location in Jamaica, the video was directed by Kalila Anderson and Ricardo Williams and features cameos by Bugle, Richie Feelings, Vybrant, Gyptian, Keznamdi, Razz, Rum Blood, Clive Hunt and Notnice.
That song was inspired by my dad and the good fathers I know. I felt it was necessary knowing that there’s mostly mother songs out there in the music industry and less for the fathers. I do have a great mom but my dad is supportive of the 7 of us too, so I represented for him and the real fathers of the Earth. BIG up Notnice who produced it and was also influential with his son where this song is concern. stated Jahmiel
