Nearly two years ago, the 10-year-old son of recording artiste Prince Ikeem was shot and killed. Despite the void that the lack of his only child has left, the deejay — who’s apart of Popcaan’s Unruly Camp — has forged ahead to release a seven-track EP in his honour titled Nuh Emotion.
“This EP was a tribute to my 10-year-old son who was murdered in Trench Town on July 16, 2021, so this was to maintain him alive where the music is anxious,” he told the Jamaica Observer‘s Splash.
“My hopes and expectations are only for this project to achieve as wide an audience as possible so that they can concentrate on the terrible incident that occurred in my life; it’s left me paranoid for my remaining time here on Earth. It’s going to hopefully reach individuals who could also be experiencing difficulties or possibly the identical down feeling I’m going through as well,” he added.
The EP, which was jointly produced by G36 Records, Lil Fry Yiy Records, and Unruly Ent, was released on March 2. It’s the follow-up of his May 2022 EP Lil Fya Fighter.
The entertainer, whose given name is Akeem Bogle, had little or no to say concerning the incident which altered his life perpetually, but noted that justice has yet to be served.
“Truthfully, that is an issue I’m not likely sure about and even justice won’t return him to life but I’ve put all my pain within the hands of my creator,” he said.
Meanwhile, Prince Ikeem is planning a tour across Jamaica to advertise his music and attract new fans.
“We’re doing an island tour, going to at the very least six different parishes. We began with St Elizabeth on the twenty fifth and Mandeville on the twenty sixth. Next up, we’ve got Linstead, St Thomas and St Mary, ending with the ultimate night in Trench Town,” Prince Ikeem said.
The artiste has been on his musical journey for over a decade and a half.
Throughout his profession he has released several tracks, amongst them Mankind, Warm Up, Gringo Dem Place and Tear Drops.
The deejay has high hopes for his profession in the approaching months.
“With this current tour of our nice and loving island, I’ll just use this chance to bounce at home before I actually go on the market abroad to do the identical thing. I can even proceed to master my performance craft, while constructing my fanbase,” Prince Ikeem said.
