After giving a good account of himself at this year's staging of Rebel Salute and wrapping up performances in Trinidad and Tobago over the summer, St Ann-based recording artiste Shakespear D-Dondadda is preparing to promote his recently released album.

Titled Wake Yuh Up, the 10-track anthology released on October 4, features no collaborators as he chose to use the platform to showcase his musical skills. Best known for the singles Put Me Out Deer and Sun Still Shines, he hopes his audience will appreciate the effort that was invested, stating that diversity was the objective during the creative process.

“This album has something for everyone; it's very diverse. I tried to cover a range of topics from love, life, hardship, happiness and even some social commentary. Whether you work in a corporate office or just a common man in the street, there is a song on the album you will appreciate,” he disclosed.

Affirming the sentiment, DoseUp Entertainment, which manages the artiste, added, “The album is a mix of emotions that digs deep into your soul regardless if you're a street thug or someone from the upper echelon of society.”

Produced by Trigga Happy Sound and distributed by Destrokids, the album is available in digital format on all major platforms. Presently, the lead single Jah Jah, released on October 1, continues to enjoy favourable rotation along with the music video which was shot throughout St Ann and its environs.
