Kabaka Pyramid

Damian Marley-produced

song shows promise


Staff Reporter


ith Damian Marley being someone he has always looked up

to, Kabaka Pyramid is more than pleased with the success

of his Marley-produced song, ‘Well Done’.

“I grow up listen dem man deh and look up to him,” Kabaka told



So it was a no-brainer when Marley approached Kabaka to do a song on

the rhythm. He said work on the song began in October and the project was

finalised in November.

“It was great. He is a very down-to-earth bredda and him tek him music

serious. It was a good vibe all around,” Kabaka said, noting that the song

was officially released a few days ago.

In the song, Kabaka uses sarcasm to try to appeal to the politicians, as

“we are saying well done so that, if we take that approach, it will have a a

better impact than the bashing,” he said.

While it is unclear how much the song has pulled on the heart

strings of politicians, it has been having a strong impact on the


“It a gwaan good, a lot of DJs playing it. In about two days, it

gone 15,000 plays on Soundcloud. The momentum a build,” he

said, noting that a music video is currently being organised.

While tight-lipped about further work with Damian Marley,

Kabaka is certainly hopeful.

“It is definitely possible. The link is there, so you can look out for

things in the future,” he said.

Meanwhile, Kabaka says he is currently working on an album that

he hopes to release later this year. And although album sales in general

continue to dwindle, he said albums are still very important.

“It is debatable, but it is still good to do albums. Internationally, it shows

where you are at as an artiste. You can’t get things like a Grammy without an

album,” he said.

However, he stressed that singles and his EPs like

Rebel Music

(2011) and L

ead The


(2013) have helped in terms of promotion.

Continuing on this promotional path, he said he recently released

Life Is Easy


another release,

Too Long

, is also on the way.

Production is also on the cards, as he has produced a song,

New Day

, for his

Bebble Rock Music artiste, Koro Fyah.
