UK-based deejay Real Askel is determined to etch his name among the greats in dancehall music.
“Music is an inborn thing for me. My dad was a singer so I guess you could say I got it from him. I began singing when I was a little boy but as I grew older I started deejaying. I want to be one of the greatest deejays in dancehall music. I want people to call my name too when they talk about Bounty Killer, Beenie Man, Ninja Man, Sizzla or Vybz Kartel,” said the artiste.
Real Askel is currently promoting a single titled Winning on the One Mattic rhythm.
The song, produced by UK-based Rounds Sickamore, was released in March.
“I’m pleased with the response that my new single is generating. I’m grateful to all the DJs who are playing it in the UK, Jamaica, the US and other parts of the world,” he said.
The entertainer is working on several new projects.
“I’ve been very busy in the studio working on some new projects that I plan to drop later this year. Big up to my management team and all the producers that I am working with —Teamflexi, Poor People Productions (Lionfoottv) and Rounds Sickamore. We’re going all the way to the top; there’s no turning back,” said Real Askel.
He’s also promoting a single titled Outaroad featuring Charly Black.
Real Askel (given name Gregton Bower) hails from Balaclava in St Elizabeth.
Some of his other songs are Bellevue Head, Sillhouette, and Affi Mek It featuring I-Maric and Mark Badda.
