Monday, June 19, 2017

President Mega is currently promoting his latest single Happiness . According to the artiste, he is anticipating a hit from the song because its message is universal.

“This is a song that speaks on relationship and finding happiness with someone who is compatible. No matter who you are, one of the greatest feeling is to be in love, so this song explores relationship and the happiness that love has to offer,” he told Jamaica Observer.

Happiness was released earlier this month and produced by M2Dk Entertainment.

President Mega, whose given name is Megerasie Medley, hails from Friendship district in Trelawny, but currently resides in South Carolina.

“I first showcased my talent at a wake and the audience liked it. I knew I wanted to do music when I heard the works of Papa San and Charlie Chaplin,” he said.

The singjay said he later began making up songs about his rural community and began performing under the name Grasshopper.

“I then began performing at school concerts and at dancehall sessions. I later got signed to Twilight Records, a label out of St James,” he said.

In 2007 migrated to the United States President Mega where he recorded a number of songs as a member of the Black Angeles hip hop group. He then moved on to a solo career two years later.

Among the songs he recorded are Shake Your Money Maker, Rude Bwoy Swagg and Dem Bwoy. He is currently organising a fun day and concert in his home town of district.
