Fresh King has the ‘Melody’


Ry­gin King, Tee­jay and Xk­lu­sive are just a few of the ru­ral­based artistes who have emerged on the mu­sic scene within the past year.

Now Man­dev­ille-based dance­hall artiste Fresh King is con­fi­dent that his big break is just around the cor­ner.

Fresh King, who has been mak­ing a name for him­self in Manch­ester, is cre­at­ing a buzz with his lat­est song, Melody (In­vic­tus). The song was pro­duced by K-Swizz.

“It’s a song that ev­ery­one can re­late to. The feed­back has been good, and we are just putting in the pro­mo­tion be­hind it right now,” said Fresh King.

To in­crease the song’s pro­mo­tion, a video for the song was re­cently up­loaded to YouTube, and it has gar­nered more than 30,000 views.

The video was shot at lo­ca­tions in Al­li­ga­tor Pond in St El­iz­a­beth and Christiana, Manch­ester. Ron­ald Turner di­rected it.

It has been two years since Fresh King, given name Ro­han Clearly, be­gan do­ing mu­sic pro­fes­sion­ally.

Cre­ativ­ity, good mu­sic and a game-chang­ing en­ergy are what he said that he is bring­ing to the ta­ble mu­si­cally.

“The road to suc­cess isn’t al­ways easy. It just takes hard work, ded­i­ca­tion and pro­tec­tion from the Almighty,” he said.


Aside from Melody, he has two other songs that will be re­leased soon. They are Pa­per Love (pro­duced by Sky­bad Mu­sic) and Hard and Long (pro­duced by Kol­lege Rock Records).

A video for a song, ti­tled Mur­derer, is to be com­pleted over the week­end.

Orig­i­nally from Seav­iew Gar­dens in Kingston, it was dur­ing his teenage years that he dis­cov­ered mu­sic and be­gan knock­ing dif­fer­ent beats on desks while per­form­ing for his school­mates.

En­cour­aged by fam­ily and friends, he de­cided to pur­sue his mu­si­cal as­pi­ra­tions

His pre­vi­ous re­leases in­clude Guh Hard fea­tur­ing Mr Khool, Weh Yah Say and We Nuh Bor­row.
