AMONG the fledgling artistes on the music scene is Khardos. He said he is aiming for greatness.

His most recent recording, Black Drawz, is produced by Gio Dan Productions on the Black Drawz Riddim. The track features Ganggoolie.

The 22-year-old entertainer, born Odame Raheem Bicardos Johnson, has been in music professionally for four years. He said his mission is to spread authentic Jamaican reggae/dancehall music and culture across the globe and keep the music alive.

“I am trying to get myself mainstream, so I did songs like Greatness. I did System Hard, I never had the chance to release that song officially. I've been on TVJ Smile Jamaica Roll Ou t [Friday Morning talent show] with it and win. I went afterward and did [record] Greatness. People still tell me they love that song but it didn't have the chance to go where it suppose to be because the focus is not on conscious music,” he told Jamaica Observer.

In November, the accompanying video for his single You Do It Better was released. The track is a collaboration with K-Shawdaii.

“ I recently released the video of You Do It Better. I did it alone but I realised it needed a female touch to it that's why I invited Shawdaii,” he said.

A past student of Old Harbour High in St Catherine, Khardos's dreams and aspirations began when he participated in music and drama events at school. By the time he graduated, he already started voicing demos and putting out releases which have helped to boost his social media presence.

“I haven't gone internationally as yet. But we are working on there,” Khardos added.
