Dancehall artiste Juggla has high expectations for his latest single Hide and Cheat
RISING deejay Juggla has high expectations for his latest single Hide and Cheat. The track, a collab with Macka Diamond, is produced by Jan Biggs Productions and was released earlier this month.
"The song is catchy and, in some ways, humorous. It speaks about two persons who are in a committed relationship but wanting to have an affair," Juggla tells the Jamaica Observer.
Juggla, whose given name is Sheldon Henry, came to the fore after placing second in the 2010 Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall Competition. He was later featured in a Magnum Tonic Wine television advert which he says marked his acting debut.
"I am grateful for the endorsement and it basically unveils my acting potential, so the future can produce more growth and diversity where my career is concerned," he says.
The 29-year-old says his musical passion began while he was at McGrath High School in Linstead, St Catherine.
"I entered the Tastee Talent Competition twice but I never won, although I went to the grand finals in 1999," he said.
After a seven-year stint in the Jamaica Constabulary Force, he left to pursue his music career full time.
His singles include Gun fi Gyal, Wa Wuda Happen, and Wish A Could See You Again featuring Nesbeth.
