Rygin King ready to take dancehall throne

Rygin King ready to take dancehall throne - He has been racking up hit after hit in recent times. His songs, 'Things Go Change' and 'How Me Grow', have been creating a buzz on the local scene, igniting the dancehall space and has helped to cement the up-and-coming artiste's place on 'the ones to watch out for' list.

His name is Rygin King, and while he may be fairly new to the industry, the artiste believes he is dancehall's next 'rising king'.

Dancehall lovers have only just begun to put a name to the songs that have been burning up the streets over the past few months, but little is known about the young man behind the music; until now.

Born Matthew Smith, Rygin King hails from Montego Bay, and the artiste is only 23 years old. Declaring that he has had a passion for music since he knew himself, the entertainer said that he has been pursuing music professionally since he left high school.

He admits to meeting his share of obstacles and says his determination to make it as an artiste has brought him to a place where his songs have become dancehall anthems.

"We have been putting out the work, but as old people woulda say: 'Anuh the same time leaf drop a wata bottom it rotten.' So I guess is not the same time me run up inna the studio me a go expect things fi change," he said.

"We just haffi be persistent and make the people dem see say we have the energy. Nothing nuh easy, enuh. In everything there is a fight and a lot of challenges. This is what I want so I was determined. I wanted to make people know that I am an artiste that is worthy enough to please fans with good music."

Rygin King noted that his visibility, or the lack thereof, was a strategic move by his team to have him wait until his songs saturated the music scene before putting a face to the name, or rather the songs.

"Everything weh we do is a strategic plan, so me being here right now is just the time for you guys to know certain things. And after a time, maybe you guys won't hear from me again for a while," he said.

"We just believe we put in a certain amount a work right now weh we can forward and talk to the people dem, and make dem know say a we did a do this then we go back inna di lab again."


With some of the hottest songs currently playing on local airwaves, it is no surprise that Rygin King is booked to make his debut appearance at Reggae Sumfest this summer. The entertainer said that patrons should prepare to be wowed by his set.

"I feel overwhelmed that I got the call, so look fi Rygin King come bun off Sumfest the realest of ways. A king do kingly things, so just expect anything from the throne," he said.

He constantly refers to himself as 'dancehall's hottest thing', and with the artiste hailing from the same parish as Tommy Lee Sparta, many are already anticipating some form of clash between the two. Rygin King has, however, come out to say that there is no competition between himself and Sparta.

"I'm already a king in dancehall, and I'm not self-praising or anything, I'm just going off people's reaction. Dem a say one king and a one king. There's no competition, enuh. We're good. I have no segregation in my career. I'm out here doing me, they're doing them, so big up the artiste dem weh come before me," he said.

Rygin King Delivered Powerful set On Reggae Sumfest 2018

Rygin King was one of the most anticipated act on the 2018 staging of Reggae Sumfest and he did not disappoint his fans.

Making his debut performance on the festival, Rygin King took the sumfest stage in the late morning performing as part one of the artist paying tribute to Montego Bay, Jamaica second city. The others were TeeJay and Tommy Lee Sparta.

The artist was given eight minutes to proved to the organizers why he dub himself "Dancehall Youngest King".  As he delivered a powered set, so much that his set which should have lasted only eight minutes runs for approximately fifteen minutes.

At one point his mic was even cut by the stage manager but this did not stop the young king as he grabs another microphone off the drumset and continued his blistering performance.

When he finally forced off stage by Mc Nuffy, the entire Catherine Hall venue was in frenzy and want more from the young King.
