The Caribbean seems to be churning
out some incredible talent. From Bajan
singer Rihanna to Jamaica s Konshens
and Gyptian, and not to mention this
year s BET female hip-hop artiste of
the year, T&T-born Nikki Minaj. A
young artiste who seems to be heading
on the path of stardom is T&T enter-
tainer CollegeBoy Jesse.
He s been hitting the mainstream
music circuit overseas for the past few
weeks, this following the success of his
2015 soca track, Tipsy. His latest move
however, has nothing to do with soca
music. In fact, it may be the exact oppo-
site.Jesse s travels in recent weeks have
seen him perform for crowds in Atlanta,
New York and just three weeks ago,
London. He was the opening act chosen
for Face Off, a concert headlined by VP
recording artistes, Bunji Garlin and Fay
Ann Lyons. Jesse says it was indeed a
pleasure to be included on the show
there, admitting that performances in
such parts enable artistes like him to
truly become aware of the bigger picture.
"Performing for crowds that aren t lim-
ited to West Indians has a way of open-
ing our eyes to the possibilities- endless
possibilities for not just those of us who
make it to those stages, but others who
are coming up in the industry," he said
in a release.
With experience gained in the calypso
arena, CollegeBoy Jesse understands
the history behind what he does. "We
have to remember those who did it
before us and we have to make some
headway in the business, taking our
music to parts unknown, with even
greater hopes that generations of
Caribbean people to come, will be
known for doing big things, musically,
outside of the Caribbean."
In the past few weeks, Jesse, who
works closely with local production
house, ZigBoi Music, has relied on the
team at ZigBoi to create music that
would make people take a second listen
"I released a reggae single---my first
ever---recently. It s called, Once In A
Lifetime, and it s on the Zig Boi pro-
duced, Royal Riddim with other T&T
vocalists like JahMel, Raskal, Makamil-
lion and Kerry John. So far, it s been
getting a lot of love," he said.
Jesse s however looking at the bigger
picture---the opportunity to expand his
horizons, of course, and become an
even more versatile Caribbean musician.
"The song s been getting a lot of rotation
at home and my team s been making
some strategic moves to make my pres-
ence felt in Jamaica, the US and the
Beyond fulfilling his vocal aspirations,
the young entertainer is making strides
in the songwriting arena as well, having
already written music for Alison Hinds
and Biggie Irie from Barbados and local
soca star Lyrikal, ahead of Barbados
Cropover festival. He s also working
alongside other Caribbean carnival proj-
ect organisers to deliver music for the
upcoming Spice Mas in Grenada, he
Fuelled by a desire to penetrate mar-
kets outside of the Caribbean with sev-
eral genres of music, CollegeBoy Jesse
says he s putting his best foot forward
and is prepared to go all out for his
career. "I really want to encourage people
to listen to my music and link up with
me on social media @collegeboyjesse.
"There s a lot more to me than meets
the eye," he said with a chuckle. ZigBoi
Music s Mr Spine, meanwhile, says he s
proud of Jesse s accomplishments thus
far and is excited to see just where his
journey leads. "We ll be at his side every
step of the way, giving him the sound
he needs to get his purpose fulfilled
with ease," said Spine.
