Young en­ter­tain­ers give credit to Fendz

The Star (Jamaica) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Fel­low en­ter­tainer and for­mer Fendz pupil, Up­grade, shared sim­i­lar sen­ti­ments. Last year, he en­tered the JCDC com­pe­ti­tion and came away with a na­tional tro­phy. It was the first of its kind for Cedric Ti­tus.

“It was the best year of my life. It was a duo per­formed by me and a friend at the time. It was very good. And our men­tor at the time, or at all times, was Fendz. That’s why I’d rather do this (form­ing the trio #R@W) with him, and no­body else,” he said.

Though they claim to have enough ma­te­rial down to re­lease a full-length al­bum, #R@W is build­ing mo­men­tum and wait­ing on the right mo­ment. They are cur­rently get­ting ready to re­lease their next sin­gle and mu­sic video called Body Good.

Both younger mem­bers hail Fendz as the rea­son they are con­fi­dently and adamantly pur­su­ing their mu­sic goals.

As a teacher, Bumpa de­scribes Fendz as very de­ter­mined.

“He’s very sched­uled, and knows the dif­fer­ent times, busi­ness time, time to per­form, and a time to feel com­fort­able. Oth­er­wise when it’s work time, there’s no form of jok­ing there,” she said. – K.S.
