WARRIOR King is concerned about the crime wave sweeping the nation. He puts his thoughts in his latest single Nuh Fraid.

Released in January 2018, Nuh Fraid is produced by Dameon Gayle of Warriors Musick on the Straight Step Rhythm.

“We ah try tell the people fi overcome fear because we are children of the Most High, so no weapon that is cast against us shall ever prosper,” he said.

“Everybody knows that the work takes me all over the world more time, but it is always a pleasure to be home in Jamaica. But since I have been back this time around, I really realise how bad the crime is. The situation in Montego Bay is very sad and people are living in fear; and it is not just Montego Bay, it is affecting the whole of Jamaica. The problem is hardening our young and I want to do what I can to inspire people through music,” he continued.

Jamaica's murder toll surpassed 1,600 in 2017. Since the start of the year, close to 200 people have been reported murdered by the police.

Last year was not a good one for some dancehall acts. Alkaline was questioned by the police for alleged involvement in a homicide (he was cleared), Munga Honorable was arrested and charged for alleged murder, while Ninja Man was convicted and sentenced to life in prison for murder.

“It takes a village to raise a child and we as Jamaicans need to stop turning a blind eye and help these young people because they have whole heap more influences and distractions than we had as kids growing up. I pledge to play my part,” said Warrior King.

Warrior King (given name Mark Dyer) gained prominence in 2002. Last year, Mayor of the City of Buffalo, Byron W Brown, declared June 11 Mark “Warrior King” Dyer Day during the 42nd Juneteeth Festival in New York.

Warrior King is known for hits including Virtuous Woman, Never Go Where Pagans Go, A Friend Indeed, and Can't Get Me Down.
