DETERMINED to become a household name, Dwayne “Sharea” Nash is hoping that his latest project — Foundation — is the platform on which he'll build a solid music career.

Foundation is a message song. Right now, a lot of youths nuh really have a role model to really look to like that so them turn to the music. Which, to me, was just a calling from the Almighty himself. Growing up, is a whole heap a struggle mi face. Nuff sleepless nights and hunger pains. I had friends I considered family, turn 'round betray mi,” the 22-year-old singjay told the Jamaica Observer's Splash. “But everything happen for a reason still. A just the journey. Mi did haffi guh through all that in order to understand certain levels of life so that me can make song that will inspire people who a guh through similar situations.”

Foundation is slated to be released next month on the Music Yard Empire imprint.

The former Penwood High student hails from the tough inner-city community of August Town in Kingston. He spent some of his formative years on Waltham Park Road before returning his hometown.

Sharea got his break two years ago after being introduced to engineer Eva Bling by deejay Daddy Damz. That meeting spawned the single To The Top (Teflon-13 label). His other songs include Lil Support (Mineral Boss Records), and Inna Dem Place.

The singjay has his mind set on making 2019 his year with multiple projects in the pipeline.

“Right now, a whole heap a things a process. Get couple links from some overseas composers. Them send me some instrumentals to do some songs on, so right now a just the work me a put in,” he said.
