The Star (Jamaica) - - ENTERTAINMENT THE WEEKEND STAR - AN­DRÉ WIL­LIAMS STAR Writer

Dance­hall artiste Sam­boni says he be­lieves that his lat­est sin­gle, ‘Nah Go Home’, is one of the best songs re­leased in dance­hall this year.

Speak­ing with THE WEEK­END STAR re­cently, Sam­boni, whose given name is Kacey Bernard, said that Nah Go Home has taken the world by storm.

“It take the en­tire dance­hall world by storm on its own. That’s dif­fer­ent from weh the streets do. Cause you have the ‘street man’ like Boom Boom, Hotta Rice, Ruxie, Game Chang­ers, DJ Shawn and K9, dem a play di song hard,” Sam­boni said.

Ac­cord­ing to Sam­boni, mu­sic lovers who have vis­ited Ja­maica fell in love with the track, and brought it back to their home coun­tries.

“I’ve been try­ing a long time in the mu­sic and happy that the first hit song is an in­ter­na­tional song. Dem come and love the vibes, and bring it home, and it spread like wild­fire. It a play ev­ery­where in the world that love and ap­pre­ci­ate dance­hall mu­sic,” he said.

Nah Go home is pro­duced by Stainy Pro­duc­tions/Dane Ray­chords, and a mu­sic video for the sin­gle was di­rected by Da Ma­niac.

“We pre­miered it on HYPE TV re­cently, and the re­cep­tion has been un­be­liev­able. I have been get­ting calls from all over. Euro­peans seem to have a spe­cial love for the song. A Rus­sian dancer chose my song for a dance com­pe­ti­tion, and when it played on the big stage, peo­ple started to grav­i­tate to it,” Sam­boni said.

Sam­boni said that he is not too con­cerned that the song is not yet a hit lo­cally.

“Only a few disc jocks play it here, but it a play all over the world. Ev­ery day I get videos and calls from over­seas. Is just for us to catch on. Once we do our home­work, we a go know what’s pop­ping with the song,” he said.

He had noth­ing but praises for the guid­ance and di­rec­tion he re­ceived from fel­low artiste Bu­gle.

“Big up Bu­gle and the An9ted En­ter­tain­ment. We a par, like from 2013 and been on the road, both lo­cally and over­seas. I watch care­fully and learn the craft and de­velop on what I al­ready had,” said Sam­boni, who has re­leased other songs like Swing Di En­ergy with Chi Ching Ching, and Rubba Bounce with Shakka Pow.
