Disheartened by entertainers who refused to give him credit for work that he did, singjay RV Jah Jah decided to pursue his dreams of becoming a recording artiste.

“I was producing songs for both established and non-established artistes and when they did interviews in the media, they didn't mention who produced their songs, and I was really fed up. So I decided I was going to make my mark with my talent in this world,” said RV Jah Jah.

“So I moved from in front of the computer and now I'm behind the microphone and it's a wonderful feeling to be singing telling my story and the stories of other persons, that people can relate to. I know I am going to make it one day,” he continued.

The Westmoreland-based artiste said he was influenced by music from an early age.

“Since I was a little boy I would hear stories of my father stringing up sound system in the yard and my mother ran a bar for many years. Therefore, music was always a part of me while growing up. I remember the first time I built a rhythm. Everybody laughed about it. Nevertheless, eventually I got better and I started doing production with my own studio RV Records,” he said.

Born Rashon Vaccianna, he moved to Kingston where he attended the Holy Trinity High school.

RV Jah Jah has performed at events in Westmoreland including West Linkup, Westmoreland Curry Festival, and Notorious Party Linkup.

Since he made his recording debut with the song Suh Mi Live, Suh Mi Learn, RV Jah Jah has released songs including Sweet Jamaica (Parrish Records) and Oil Up. Jay Blaze Muzik is among the producers he has worked with.

He is currently promoting the song Money Hero, which was produced by Jay Blaze Muzik.

“I want my music to touch people and to inspire others. I bring out the realness in what I do, and always try to be original at all times. My goal is to move people and make them feel good when they hear my songs,” he said.
