Shaqstar is Seaforth’s Son

Shaqstar hopes that his debut EP, Seaforth Son, will get his two feet out the door, and into stardom.

“I hope that this EP will give supporters a deeper insight into who Shaqstar is as well as portray a more precise background of the artiste,” the deejay, whose given name is Shaquille Williams, told the Jamaica Observer’s Splash.

Co-produced by Zula Beats/Got-it Records, the six-track project was released on May 13. The tracks include Changes, Untold Stories, Move On, Hurt Mi Again, Bang and Aeroplane.

Shaqstar added that the EP will detail his upbringing in St Thomas.

“Growing up in Seaforth was more like up and down. There was both good and bad living conditions and the EP will speak to some of these conditions,” he said.

The Wolmers’ Boys’ and Morant Bay High School past student says music has always been his primary interest.

“Music for me was an innate thing, and it was revealed from as early as prep school. [I did] writing and singing at school events such as career days and fun days. This continued into high school where free styling and writing during lunch time and after school was the norm,” the deejay said.

Some of his previous releases include Memories, Chop Di Line, Henessey Ina Vein, and Cold Hearted.

“Creating a mixtape is also in the pipeline for this year consisting of songs which are already out and a few new singles,” he said.
