Tahirah, Jegz drop EPs

IT was a full house at the Blue Essence Lounge in Kings Plaza Wednesday evening, where Black 90 Records artistes Tahirah and Jegz launched their EPs.

Both delivered solid sets, performing songs from Sanctify and Glory Days, respectively. Both EPs are produced by Dean Fraser.

Laurence Warren, CEO of Black 90 Records, described the event as a ‘new turn’ for his company and locally produced music.

“I’m really pleased with the turnout. The performances were great, and we see good things down the road,” he said.

Tahirah, from Clarendon, opened with the Peter Tosh ‘prayer’ Jah is My Keeper before stepping up the pace with Where is All the Love, the Nyahbinghi-flavoured Fyah, her reggae take on Bobby Blue Bland’s Members Only, Unity and Sanctify.

Jegz, also a Clarendon native, was all energy from the opening note of Step Town. The 35-year-old singjay had the crowd going to Glory Days and Mama Love, to which he serenaded his mother Claudette Nembhard.

He later did a robust rendition of Sam Smith’s Stay With Me with Tahirah.

The main acts were preceded by Jahvauri, D Medz and Purple, who each gave commendable performances.

All were backed by the Skool band.
