Teejay hopes for change

Emerging deejay Teejay is hoping that the resort town of Montego Bay can return to the halcyon days.

“I just want to tell the people of Montego Bay to come together and bring back MoBay to how it used to be. I remember the days when I used to go Pier One or Margaritaville to party, but now, we only comfortable to party outside MoBay. I remember the days when I used to feel comfortable a walk Barnett Street, Orange Street and Market Street; everybody wants back those days,” he said.

The 23-year-old deejay — who hails from Tank Lane in Bottom Pen in Glendevon — started out doing gun anthems. He, however, has changed his tune and is focusing on reality songs.

Days Dem, a positive song, was released in November 2017 on the Life Story Riddim for Rush Sheikh Records.

“We a reject the negativity. Mi realise say nothing bad no good, we don't know no badman. From yu bad, that lead to bad mind, bad energy, bad heart. We know real youth that's why we sing 'Days Dem'; about the poor days in the past, the struggle, about how hungry I was to make it in the business and provide for my three youths, and the miracle of prosperity that is working through life. We ah send out positive energy into the universe because is what you send out you get back,” he said.

Teejay (given name Timoy Jones) recently returned to Jamaica after doing shows in Trinidad and Tobago.

“The show in Tobago was incredible; it was the biggest fete in Tobago, with me and Sizzla as the headliners of the show,” he said.
