Praj-X has put the knife to Jada Kingdom's Banana with his new song titled Plantain, which was released one month ago.

According to the deejay, his risqué response has been getting a lot of love on his home turf.

“The feedback right here in Clarendon has been amazing. Plantain is probably one of my more popular songs right now,” he said.

Praj-X competed as Neckoteen in the 2009 Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall contest. His previous songs include Mad Ting N Boom, Richness Come A Mi Foot, Sexy and Bad and Go Fi Kartel.

Last year, he released Alien Anatomy, a nine-song EP.

He admits trying to break through in a competitive market is tough.

“The buying of views by some artistes in the business is having a negative effect on many talented artistes. Not just me but other artistes out there. You get fight from artiste, producer and selector. That's why mi do my own thing. Mi nuh follow man, mi build my own hype,” said Praj-X.

Born Jeffrey Porter, he developed a passion for music from an early age.

“I started doing music before I even realised I was doing music. Banging on desks at school and deejaying. But I decided to take this serious as a career,” he said.
