The entertainment arena’s full of surprises, isn’t it? The internet’s the perfect place to reveal it all it seems, even when it means telling the world that as gangster as your appearance may be, you’ve got a little Beethoven in you. Such is the case with Jamaican dancehall artist, Popcaan.

The dancehall hit maker grew up with his grandparents and admits that his grandmother does not listen to some of his songs.

On the weekend, the “Happy Now” singer gave a bit of a brief performance on the piano, posting it to Instagram and showing fans that there’s a lot more to him, than many realize. In 2017, the artist told redbullmusicacademy.com that music feeds him life. “Music feeds me happiness and it help me express myself sometimes where me don’t want to say to somebody. Me just say it in a different language, where I sing it off. Music is the best thing. It feeds me everything. It feeds me life,” he had said.

Popcaan grew up with his grandparents in St. Thomas, Jamaica. His grandmother, a pastor, would ensure that he went to church, he explained in the article. He also revealed that as a youth he would listen to the music of Kirk Franklin- a gospel singer. Popcaan, a young, globally recognized name on the dancehall circuit, with songs like “Unviolable”, “Lef My Gun” and “Gangster City” says, Kirk Franklin’s “Gonna Be A Lovely Day” was a song that gave him light amid the darkness that he faced.

He’d say, “It’s gonna be a lovely day, lovely day, lovely day.” Me likes the happiness. My life was rough growing up too, so that song always give me something to hold on to, that it’s going to be a lovely day then, a lovely day still, even though it was rough at that time. It really turned out to be a lovely day after all.

 

In the Caribbean, governments are battling with gun violence and the proliferation of negative images. The question still remains- do artistes, entertainers, movie creators, radio personalities and even the actions of politicians, feed the negative energy, more than inspire change? Share your comments with us below.

Now, take a look at Popcaan’s piano playing skills. He’s not bad!

Amid unprecedented upheaval over the present state of global economies and intense pressure on healthcare systems worldwide, mass deaths and a mandate by the World Health Organisation for world leaders to remove Covid-19 restrictions, well loved, reggae artist Buju Banton has broken his silence.

Buju, in three very honest social media posts on Wednesday, told the world that he is done with Covid-19, suggesting that it has been a plan all along. Known for his vocal stance against injustice whether via his music or perfectly articulated epressions, Buju who continues to enjoy his freedom following years of incarceration in the United States between 2009 and 2018, said, “We are tired of you intellectual fools trying to tell us how to live our lives. If you are so smart why haven’t you found the cure for cancer?”

The entertainer’s outbursts come one day after a video for the remix of Koffee’s single “Pressure,” on which his powerful, raspy vocals are featured, was uploaded to YouTube.
