Tommy Lee Sparta the Evanescence of Dancehall – Gaza Metamorphism.
Tommy Lee Sparta
His unconventional rise to fame brought him immense popularity coupled with backlash from various cross section of the Jamaican society as his unorthodox persona failed to sit well with the majority of “ Christianized Jamaican masses”.
Dancehall Sensation Tommy Lee Sparta has managed to rise above his critics, colleagues and rumored predicaments with the undeniable Neo King of Dancehall Vybz Kartel. After a year filled with successes and major hurdles, the artiste unlike former Gaza Protégés Lisa Hyper, Blak Ryno, Gaza Kim, Jahvinchi amongst others has managed to not just only remain constant on lips of music lovers but also managed to morph the Gaza Movement which was locked up on life support into the now beautiful Sparta.
With the release of his new single “Sparta Angel”, Tommy Lee Sparta, has now demonstrated that he possesses what it takes to flawlessly crossover into several genres of music, bridging the gap between Dancehall and Alternative.
The recently released “Sparta Angel” somberness and melodic styling is the perfect eclectic mix of genres never yet achieved by any artiste whether the collaboration was local or international.
In the single Mr Sparta evokes an intrinsic love for not just music but for a newly found genre of music backed by a new generation of Jamaicans in particular who yearn for much more culturally diverse society.
With all being said, one can one wish Tommy Lee Sparta all the best in his musical endeavors as I only predict greatness beyond the horizon.
