Unruly Productions artiste Rohgees has scored his first bonafide hit with the brilliantly delivered This Girl. The single has been put into major rotation on a number of stations including IRIE, RJR, HITZ and ZIP FM.
“The response has been phenomenal so far and the video is doing very well since its release a few weeks ago,” Rohgees said.
Rohgees spent his early years in St Elizabeth, Jamaica, developing his vocal skills by singing in church and at community concerts.
Describing his music as 2012 reggae music, Rohgees see himself as an intellectual and, as such, he promises to create material that the world, and not just Jamaica, can accept.
"I want to add to what Bob Marley and other reggae legends have created and I am confident that I can add to that legacy once I get that ultimate attention to showcase my talent,"he said.
According to the artiste, reggae music has diminished in its global popularity, and he believes he has the capacity to bring back authentic reggae music to its former glory.
Rohgees is signed to Portmore-based record label Unrully Productions, and the collaboration has led to the recording of his new LP, The Trod, which carries seven melodious tracks.
The compilation features songs such as Be Careful, the aforementioned This Girl and Teach Di Youths, which are all enjoying steady rotation locally.
According to Rohgees, he has the musical depth to become one of reggae's elite, as long as he remains hungry for success and loyal to his team at Unruly Productions.
The artiste is adamant that there is hope for reggae music if positive youths are given the chance to add their element to its rich legacy.
