The Star (Jamaica) - - ENTERTAINM­ENT - STAR Writer

Ja­hazeil Myrie, the 21-yearold son of reg­gae su­per­star Buju Ban­ton, has been get­ting a lot of recog­ni­tion for his song Hold On on the Delly Ranx’s Cot­ton Swabb rhythm.

Although he has been do­ing mu­sic for four years, he said that the song has re­ally giv­ing his ca­reer the ‘buzz’ that it needed.

“Peo­ple been telling me that it is a good song. The re­ac­tion to it is awe­some. It is a pos­i­tive vibes that I am get­ting from peo­ple,” he told THE STAR, ad­mit­ting that his fa­ther’s star­dom has helped to open more doors for him.

With ac­com­pa­ny­ing vi­su­als out on his YouTube chan­nel, Myrie said that the song en­cour­ages per­sons to find ways to over­come the strug­gles that they might be fac­ing in their lives

“It’s talk­ing about over­com­ing de­pres­sion. I got the in­spi­ra­tion for the song from watch­ing peo­ple’s lives,” he said.

And with the aim of spread­ing pos­i­tiv­ity through his lyrics, he said that he will be build­ing on the mo­men­tum that he has gained from Hold On by re­leas­ing more songs.

“I have other mu­sic in the pipe­line [with] my brother Lela Records and my other brother Markus (Myrie),” he told THE STAR.
