"IT means everything to me", declared singer Abatau about his song Lowe Mi Natty, which expresses his feelings about living with dreadlocks.

The son of deejay Tony Rebel was expected to launch the song's video last Tuesday at Redbones Blues Cafe, but the premiere was postponed due to "technical challenges".

Abatau, 17, said he has been musically-inclined since childhood.

"Nobody motivated me, it was just the music, the feeling that the music gives me. I wrote my first song at age 12 for my mother called Mommy Mommy, but this song [Lowe Mi Natty] is my first recording," he said.

The postponed video launch did not dampen the mood as Abatau took the stage with his Tribe Azizi Band and performed a lively set that included Lowe Mi Natty.

"I'm so proud of Abatau and will always support his dreams. He was born to do music and not every child or even adults know their purpose here on Earth and I'm so happy that he does," said his mother, Alisia Jarrett.
