Dwayne Best also known as Jahmai Foresight is on a mission to bring a positive message through his music to impact on people’s lives. He is of the view that lyrics should be much more “than rhymes and metaphors”, but should be a reflection of “life’s experiences”. Positive messaging is even more important for Foresight because he hails from New Orleans, St Michael, an area which saw a number of shootings and general social unrest recently among sections of the community. “It’s quite sad what is being promoted, we should be hearing more talented and gifted people and not the non-intellectual artistes that uplift folly.” Foresight whose track Joy can be heard on www.yardhype.com and is No. 11 on www.reverbnation.com, said he was raised on music from groups like Third World, Bob Marley And The Wailers, Peter Tosh, Nitty Gritty, Earth, Wind And Fire, Buju Banton and Garnett Silk. “I am a spiritual individual who would love my spirituality to impact on people in as much a positive way that I can. The majority of people in the world are way too confused to be promoting disillusioned, ignorant messages to the youth through the media.” Foresight has already honed his musical and vocal skills opening for artistes like Warrior King and Junior Kelly as well as performing on Reggae On The Hill and is looking forward to doing some touring in the new year. “I sing, rap and chant or, in Jamaican terms, deejay and I write all my songs.” Foresight said he had a love for music since he was eight years old. He said he opted to write a song when his coach turned up for him to attend a football match. “I am planning to do some collabs with some major artistes as well. I have a link with Mikey General from Jamaica, he is my good friend, and I will work with him quite soon also Pressure, Turbulence, Bugle and Richie Spice. I have a lot of work to accomplish.” Foresight has also penned a track entitled When Will It End inspired by the events in Linden, Guyana, where a number of people were reportedly shot by police for protesting about high electricity prices recently.
