Dancehall artiste Only Alpha is ready to perform in Belize on Friday.
The talented teen has been amaking major noise with his latest release, Dark Page, which has been bombing the radio waves into submission and sparking interest on social media networks like Tik Tok. The song was officially released on September 14th via all digital download platforms.
“I’m leaving Panama and heading to Belize today, the response to the song has been great feedback all over,” the artiste whose real name is Alpha Beckford, said.
Only Alpha grew up in Palmers Cross May Pen, Clarendon, where he attended Central High School in May Pen. The artiste’s family boasts a decent musical pedigree as his father, Lascelles Beckford, played guitar on sessions for the late great Bob Marley.
“My mother did background vocals for my father while he worked on his musical endeavours. My sister won the Tastee Talent show at the age of 11, and two of my sisters entered Digicel Rising Stars…not to mention my brother Yung Ras who is doing his own thing,” he said.
He took the stage name Only Alpha to announce his arrival in the Dancehall Game.
“It comes from my given name which I hated when I was a child growing up until this day when I was doing an intro and I loved my name from that day on,” he said.
He recorded his first single, ‘Banger Anthem’, but it was never released, and ‘Dark Page’ will be his first officially released project.
“My future plans are to keep inspiring people with my music, making more music and touring. I have enough songs recorded for an actual album, but I don’t currently have an EP planned as yet,” he said.
He is presently featured on a single entitled “Pain” on the Queen Ladi Gangsta’s EP.
