Africa's Junior West One does dancehall

by DHRW
(Jamaica)

THIRTY-ONE-YEAR-OLD dreadlocked Weston Kauma might not be among the celebrated reggae celebrities, but believes his latest project, the six-track A Fire album will wheel him towards firm.


Weston who has adopted a stage name as ‘Junior West One’ can boast having been in the musical industry for eight years but only managed to put together a six-track album this year. Reasons for such a delay are cards kept close to his chest, he says.

It is more certain that he loves taking time in doing his thinks as he has only announced a video single release of the six tracks so far. It is not even out yet

Junior West One who describes his music as reggae dancehall gets his inspiration from the roots of reggae music, Jamaica. He has worked with artistes like the Mater Poet Red Linso who is on a rather silent side.

The budding reggae artiste who has recorded with Jerry Fingers believes that music is not for him to attain stardom but is simply a passion.

“When awards are introduced, we think they are for musician but at the end of it all, they put certain rules that prevent some musicians like reggae artistes from performing,” he says.

He feels that Rasta is a culture that one needs to present to the people and he has encouraged people in the the country to support reggae artistes.

Westone Kauma is undoubtedly multitalented not only with music but he makes a living out of painting and other forms of artwork.

Papa Meeky is also
another reggae artiste who is trying to bring Zambian reggae to the fore. He has an album entitled sing this song.

The 42-year-old who started from childhood specifically 1987 is due to release and launch his album.

He believes that reggae has an intellectual vibe and he is totally inspired by himself. His type of reggae is called lovers rock which is specifically love music.

Papa meeky is his stage name but when he is off-the-stage, he is called Meeky Mazingaliwa. He looks up to Jamaican artistes like Peter Tosh, Burning Spear and Prince Farrai.

He tries to be creative by no sticking to one type of reggae music. He is diverse and does other kinds such as roots and spiritual reggae.

His has a 12 track album which at the moment is not receiving airplay and is planning to work on a music video

“Music shouldn’t be like fashion but should unite artists by working together, it is like a mission and we are here to fulfill this mission,” he says.

Papa Meeky pointed out that if an album is not loved, then one has to go back at the studio and try to perfect it so that it sells.

Just like any other reggae artistes have said, papa Meeky also thinks the media is to blame for the artistes not been known by the general public.

He is a man who believes in criticising anything that has not been done adequately as it is a way of correcting them and lead them into the right direction.
