Reggae artiste, Prince Banton, also known as Fireman, Fire Sound, Champion Sound, has been in the Nigeria music Industry for over a decade and majors more on the dancehall genre of the music.
Prince who is set to release a new single on the air titled Destined To Be hosted his fans last December 27, at Paradise Hotel, College Road Ifako, for a single listening party, during which he also created a platform for upcoming artists and stars to perform too.
These included X Tee, J-Wise, TC-Kan, and others.
According to the Fire Man, the song is dedicated to little children, and in it, he tries to teach them the way, and their parents to love their children, know how to take them forward. It is also to make them know that they are the future of tomorrow, so that they don’t go astray.
Recall the hit song on the whole nation, Koni Koni Love, By Clever J, of which Prince Banton took the most catching third verse on the track and also Fire Fire by TC-Kan in which he was also featured seven years back.
The sound man spoke on what his fans should be expecting from him saying: “Fans should be expecting a brand new thing, brand new vibe, a true reggae vibe, the conscious. That’s the life I will continue leaving, so that’s what I’m chasing right now”.
In speaking about his role model, he never admitted having anyone currently, due to the kind of songs he said they are doing. According to him, it was different in the nineties, but promised bringing back the sound of the nineties back to the twenties on a very hot note.
The artiste though poured out his love for Chronixx, Buju Banton, every other Jamaican reggae dancehall artiste. Outside Jamaica, he mentioned Burna Boy, Shatta Wale, Patoranking, Stone Bwoy, adding they are all making waves but assured of bringing a new vibe, because of his unique blessed voice.
