Jah Thunder eyes Football
Rastafarian singjay Jah Thunder still harbours dreams of Jamaica qualifying for the next World Cup.
“Jamaicans love football and this loved intensifies after we qualify for World Cup in 1998. Just look at the football fever going on now, with the number of flags being purchased; the daily discussions about favourite teams, even among the ordinary man on the street,” he told the Jamaica Observer.
Jah Thunder, whose given name is Omar Bolt, is currently ramping up the promoting of his song Football.
“This song will definitely help to relive Jamaicans of World Cup 1998. I wrote and released it [song] a year ago because I think it can inspire us to greatness. It was released on Black Star label out of Holland. It also has an accompanying music video,” he said.
The singjay was born in Cassia Park, St Andrew, and raised in Papine, St Andrew.
“I really got my influence for music from my cousin Capleton and other artistes, including Peter Tosh, Bob Marley and Jacob Miller. I love positive songs and was eager to write my own lyrics. The first song I released was one called Bada Bada on African Star label,” he said.
Other released songs are Too Much, 1,2,3, Black a Kill Black, and Secret to Survive.
Jah Thunder has toured several countries as an opening act for Capleton’s shows.
