IT's a practice that annoys some men and drives fear in others: their significant others going through their cellphones.

Singjay Diversion, who said he has experienced this, puts it all in the single Last Night.

Self-produced on his Black and Gold Productions imprint, Last Night was released last month.

“It happened to a friend of mine an' I found myself in that situation sometime ago. I guess is something most single man can identify with,” he said.

Last Night is the St Ann native's first song.

He always had a love for music, but was unwilling to take the plunge until the time was right. While working as a mechanical engineer, teacher and insurance salesman, Diversion also went back to school to sharpen his diction and develop his songwriting technique.

“A lotta artiste spend many years in the business; mi spend time trying to get into it,” he said.

Diversion was born Mohamid Hamilton and grew up in Brown's Town listening to a diverse batch of artistes, including Buju Banton, Bounty Killer and Beenie Man. He had no direct influence.

According to the certified mechanical engineer, “Once the artiste creative, mi rate dem.”

Last Night is one of the songs that will appear on an EP and album he plans to release this year or in early 2019. Dirty Habit, another self-produced song, is also expected to be on both projects.
