ENGLAND-based reggae-soul singer Momo-Watt is currently in the island promoting his latest single, Mothers and Daughters.

"I wrote the song while lying in a hospital bed. I was due to perform at my sister’s party and I, unfortunately, got laid up. While healing, I decided to write the track and got out of hospital just in time to perform it. This song means a lot and I hope that the public can relate to it and give it some support," he said.

Set to be released on Friday, Mothers and Daughters is on the Kufe Records label.

"For me, the ultimate honour is to be to be recognised in Jamaica, and other places, as a first class reggae singer who writes and performs his own music. That would be the most fulfilling achievement of my career," he said.

Born in Kingston, Momo-Watt (real name Michael Mowatt) spent his formative years in St Ann before migrating to England, at 10, with his parents.

In the 1980s, he did a 10-year stint as lead singer for the reggae harmony group, The Chosen Few and is credited on some of the outfit’s biggest hits, including Love Between a Boy and Girl, On The Right Track, and In The Rain.

"Those were some great years. It was an absolute pleasure working with the group. We were delivering some terrific harmonies and I think we brought something special to reggae," he said.

A principal of production company BVTVoneUK Productions located in Luton, Bedfordshire, Momo-Watt hopes his music will reasonate with local listeners.

"I hope people around the world see how mothers and daughters play an important role in the family and this needs to be continuously promoted," he said.

Momo-Watt is known for tracks including Driving Home for Christmas, Blessed Are The Peace Makers, andRain From the Skies.
