Vviche banks on Destiny

Newcomer Vviche has an ear for good music. He knows what will stir the interest of music lovers and, with the assistance of respected musician and producer Llamar "Riff Raff" Brown, the song Destiny came to fruition.

Destiny is about surviving despite the odds that one may face in life.

"The song is inspired by my experiences growing up setting goals and dealing with setbacks. This allowed me to understand life in general, not always smooth and we are not always going up, but it's the persistence and the mental strength to keep going," he said in an interview with the Jamaica Observer.

This debut single will be released on March 31 via Nebilus Records.

As Vviche deals with several social issues in the track, he is passionate about the lack of support to assist people to realise their dreams.

"What mostly concerns me is the support mechanisms individuals don't have to bring their dreams to life. We must encourage our people that once they work hard, they will be given an opportunity to realise those dreams," he reasoned.

A trained musician, Vviche studied at the Edna Manley College for the Visual and Performing Arts and plays the keyboard and trumpet.

He said his love for music was developed as a child while attending church in his community of Summerfield in Clarendon.

The singer, who was born Dalton Atkinson, says he wants his music to be a positive influence on people.
