Major Steppa motivates with ‘Keep on Moving’
Major Steppa

Ghanaian reggae artiste Major Steppa has endured some personal challenges in recent times. How he endured those obstacles is recalled in Keep on Moving, his latest song.

The single was released by Humble Heights Connect on March 6, Ghana’s Independence Day.

“I actually dived into myself and expressed my true feelings based on the struggles I was going through at that point of time. Basically, I was talking to myself, urging myself to not give up regardless of the many struggles that life throws at me with hope that everyone going through any kind of hardship can relate and will be motivated to continue striving to get better and rise above their current situation,” he told OBSERVER ONLINE.

Like most of Major Steppa’s previous songs, Keep on Moving carries a Jamaican reggae flavour. Strongly influenced by Capleton and Sizzla, he is from Accra, the Ghana capital which he says has an active reggae and Rastafarian community.

Major Steppa is among the growing number of Ghanaian reggae acts. The best known is Stonebwoy; others include Shatta Wale and Rocky Dawuni.

He yearns to get a foothold in reggae land.

“My heart is in Jamaica and it’s my greatest dream to not only have my music all over Jamaica and beyond but also bridge Ghana and Jamaica with my music, as well as spend some quality time working together with the likes of Busy Signal and other great Jamaican talents in the near future,” said Major Steppa.
