Deejay Caldinho bats for reality
CALDINHO prides himself as an artiste who deejays about reality. He puts that energy into an ode to independent women in his latest single You Thing a Happen.
"Reality can be good or bad. And girls songs a reality too," the up-and-coming artiste told the Jamaica Observer.
The track, produced by DJ Tropical, was released on the Passport Riddim this week.
"The song is about independent girls who spend their own money and have their own stuff," he said.
Caldinho (given name Kemar Flash) said You Thing a Happen is intended to show fans his versatility.
The 25-year-old said, however, he is still actively promoting his 2012 anthem Street Struggles.
"That song is about reality, life and personal aspects of struggles in the street. Because it's easy to get a gun and I never went that way. People outside my box can see and relate to it," he said.
He said his aim is for people to know him for his music.
Caldinho, who lives in Cooreville Gardens in St Andrew, said his musical journey began while he was at Duhaney Park Primary School.
He honed his skills and felt encouraged by his friends' response to his lyrics.
His break came in 2008 with Rising. He has since Buss Di Youth, Try Survive, Hustle Fi Mine, Bad A Yard and mixtape The Mad Reality.
