PRESS RELEASE – Which musician is not a lover of music? When that love is mixed with positivity and a global genre such as reggae, a rising star is birthed.
Jervais Antoine, better known as Soyah, is that rising star and he will be the featured artist at the final PonmDamou Poetry Slam for the year. The reggae artist will be backed by the band, Sceptre.
Soyah cites the music of Garnett Silk, Bob Marley and Tupac as a few of his early influences.
He has participated in song competitions such as Guinness Freestyle and Caribbean Youthfest.
His name Soyah is an acronym for “Son of Jah”, revelling his spiritual consciousness and health habits.
