Jah Mason, well known as the golden boy of collaborations in the Reggae music industry, has joined forces with international crossover rapper, Uzman on the single, Nightlife. The track which was released in the summer of 2013 was quickly added to several commercial reggae radio stations playlists. The song also reached the number 1 spot on the NYC reggae charts (Funk Master Flex’s Franchise Record Pool) in November, and the official music video has received over 18,000 authentic views to date.
To celebrate the songs success, Uzman, who is based in Toronto, Canada, will be in Jamaica from January 10th through 19th as part of Caribbean- wide Nightlife promotional tour. This will be his second trip to the island; he flew to Jamaica to perform the single with Jah Mason in late 2013 and was well received by the audience in St. Elizabeth (Jah Mason’s home parish). Uzman speaks highly of the artistes on the Jamaican music scene and says his goal is to collaborate with other serious Jamaican artists, record for local producers, and cultivate as many professional relationships as possible.
“It’s important to get your name out there and your music heard by as many people as possible, every chance you got. That’s what I am going to be focusing on this year. My grind don’t stop,” says Uzman.
Uzman is making himself available for interviews while in Jamaica. Interested media houses are asked to contact Lisa Breakspeare of Nemesis Entertainment by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
