Reggae artiste Nesbeth is finding success with his latest single My Dream. The song has just been added to the BBC’s Radio 1Xtra and listed as the number 1 New Reggae song to enjoy by the UK’s Capitol Xtra.
Last Sunday two major political rallies were held in Kingston and St Catherine. In Spanish Town the Jamaica Labour Party held an area council meeting and in Half Way Tree square, a massive crowd of PNP supporters converged on the capital to hear their leaders speak, and to hear the much anticipated date of Jamaica’s 17th General Parliamentary Elections.
A hallmark of political rallies in Jamaica is the use of music by the Political parties to energize the crowd and help messages resonate with supporters. It is then not a surprise that a certified hit with the title ‘My Dream’, a song that evokes memories of Martin Luther King’s famous 1963 Washington DC speech, was used on Sunday evening by Political dreamers like The Portia Simpson Miller led PNP and Andrew Holness’s JLP. On both occasions the rallies turned into a sea of vuvuzela forwards and salutes for what is destined to become a Nesbeth’s song.
Segueing from the political rhetoric, Nesbeth’s best Dreams are currently becoming a reality, the artiste is currently number 1 on Richie B’s Top Reggae Singles Chart for the third consecutive week, Number 1 on Zip FM’s Reggae Chart and Hype TV’s VTX Countdown while threatening the top spot on Television Jamaica’s Entertainment Report Top 10 and to top it off he has been nominated for ‘Song Of The Year’ by the Jamaica Reggae Industry Association (JARIA).
