How Wow Records artiste Breeze Genah has teamed up with fellow artiste Zamunda for a new single called Investment.
“This song was never planned, but the matter of investment is an everyday preements for everybody, everybody needs solid investments,” the artiste whose real name is Donovan Grant, said.
“Zamunda chose this riddim out of three choices. He was freestyling the hook, so I was in a taxi at the moment when he sent me the voice note with the hook, and mi just came up with my part same time. Investment is a big part of people’s daily lives. Everybody is trying to flip money, they have money and don’t know what to do with it, but the best thing is investment, farms, find a way to generate more money,” he said.
The single, which appears on the How Wow Records imprint, will be released with visuals in October. Zamunda and Breeze Genah shot the video for Investment last Friday in Negril.
“The reaction has been great so far in the studios and in the streets with Investment, the song connect with the youths,” Breeze Genah said.
Breeze Genah believes that subjects such as Financial Literacy and Money Management should be taught in high schools.
“They need to teach Financial Literacy in school, I was doing so well in school, if I had put my mind to it, I would be a bright nerd, because I come from a bright family. But I have relatives who have gone to university who have no jobs, and several bright sisters with dozens of subjects who sit down a yard, , They need to teach people business practices, practical things to survive, that’s where the Earth is, they need to tweak the curriculum of even IT to show children how to make money,” he reasoned.
Breeze Genah is excited about the direction of his career.
“I am just looking forward to making a major move with my career. I am just pushing, Jamaica can look out, I just need a listening ear to give the people what they want,” he said.
