“I really appreciate it, it is a good feeling, being appreciated elsewhere is a good feeling,” Jahllano told Loop in a brief interview.
His manager Delicia Patterson told Loop the nomination came as a surprise for the entire team. She said Jahllano was nominated for his reggae music.
Though known for early songs such as “We Badness Expensive”, “War Dem Want” and ‘Come from Nothing”, Jahllano is working on including more reggae into his repertoire as he seeks to sing more uplifting and inspiring songs.
“It has deeper vibrations in terms of positivity and upfullness,” he said, stating that as a child of the 90s, he grew up listening to Jamcian singer Sizzla Kalonji, who is his inspiration.
Jahllano said he wants to use his platform to promote more conscious music.
The Laventille-born singer was part of the early reggae movement in the mid-2000s alongside the likes of King David, Jahbami, Queen Omega, Million Voice and Isasha. He turned to dancehall as his positive lyrics failed to score and the Zesser movement gained in popularity.
Signed to Hilltop Entertainment, Jahllano is a brand ambassador for The Hideout Clothing and Shine Papers, USA.
