– Compelling Fans To Bounce Coh Un Footballer!
It all started when my good friend used to record on his computer,” Black Boy related to 2Nite Magazine this week in an engaging interview. The young personality, voice and talent behind hit local tracks such as I want to put you on
your back and Woley, is elated to be where he is today, despite a journey not void of minor setbacks he admitted. “I continued recording from there with no equipment,” he disclosed. He says he saw a lot of opportunity with what he had undertaken and still loves it. Originally from Chasin, Babonneau, his music is his career and currently his main income earner. “I wish to take my music to the limit and won’t give up on it,” he shared.
Black Boy says that when he first started off, his music was underground, but he continued to record and sing because he loved it. According to him, his craft wasn’t earning him any money then, but after developing his talent over the years, he has become sought after by producers both locally and overseas who approach him to produce music. Apart from this, he has steadily seen his fan base grow as his popularity has increased.
His genre of music is Kuduro, ‘a hot and hype’ genre which is commonly known as Dennery style, since it originated from the community of Dennery. Black boy has performed in Martinique, but he wishes to perform in the United States and other countries. He wishes for Kuduro to become bigger and better he says. “They call it Soca, but Soca is Soca and this is a different genre. I would like to see it become as big as Soca and Dancehall,” he emphasised. His aim is to develop his craft and make this music genre internationally renowned.
One of his greatest achievements thus far have been promoters from Canada and New York contacting him in recent times to perform in their own countries, as his unique musical genre is now becoming more recognised and receiving exposure and airplay throughout the States. Woley is Black Boy's biggest hit thus far and his favourite at that, as it is the signature track which earned him relevant musical placement on the local music scene and made him popular by St. Lucian standards. Apart from this big single, Black Boy has produced other successful hits with several other local rural artistes including Messi, GBR, Freezy & Shallo. He has worked with Evalucian Band and 758 Studios.
