Having previously proclaimed himself ‘Lord Evil,’ the hardcore deejay, known for several hit songs containing gun and war-related lyrical content, says he has slowly undergone a spiritual rebirth since the birth of his son in January of last year and will be making more songs to positively influence young people and reflect upon the happenings within society.

“At this stage in my life, I am trying to teach the youths that we don’t need anybody else to venture down that warpath because there is nothing good at the end,” Aidonia said in a statement released Thursday. “Right now, we dealing with love and unity. It’s about making music to feed yourself, feed your family and your friends, uplift yourself and everybody. I have no time to war with anybody.”

The announcement comes following recent conflicts involving fellow Dancehall artist, Masicka and clothing designer, Romiech, whose clothes he burned in an Instagram after alleging he disrespected the Run Road T-shirt line he created for him by putting one of the shirts on a goat.

In addition to his adjustments musically, he has been making small changes to his lifestyle, including cutting meat out of his diet and donning Rastafari clothing, including his getup at Reggae Sumfest 2014 when he sported a military uniform with Rastafarian symbols.

This past June, Aidonia released the conscious effort, One Heart, produced by his Jag One Production (J.O.P) label and will be shooting videos for singles such as Coco Powda and Love Off Yuh Gyal in the near future. Additionally, he plans to drop a clothing line later this summer dubbed 1Voice, including apparel for men, women and children.
