Schwarz Bless’on as his name implies stands for and represents the blessings (legacy)
of the Black Culture (African-American-Caribbean-Hiphop) which includes Music of
Black Origin (Rap, R&B, Soul, Dancehall, Reggae, Ragga, Bashment, some Pop-hiphop,
Jazz/Blues, World music including Afro-beats, Soca, Salsa, evolving into House,Dance)
you name it.
To him Music is international language, both spoken & sign language. U feel me? So
when he speaks Music, he does so, passionately, spitting truth (diplomatically) with
neither compromise nor acrimony. His style is unadulterated. Pure. Simplistic yet
He respects Music, especially Hip-hop as a culture&music. Examine its impact! HIPHOP
IS LIKE OUR HERO. It’s our legacy which he holds in dearest esteem. Like Benjamin
Disraeli said: “the legacy of heroes is the memory of a great name & the inheritance
of a great example”. So in his bid to contribute to society, he’s Studious, a Paragon,
recognises his African roots, Indigenous and a Natural Boy- thus his nickname, the
acronym “S.P.A.I.N. BOY”.
His major interest is neither fame nor publicity. Remember fame’s a vapour. Popularity’s
an accident. Money brings it but goes with the wind. The only thing that endures
is character, with faith. So he concentrates on working harder at building and helping
build character, harness talent & skills with love & passion. I endeavour to work
towards helping young ones build and achieve their dreams, create opportunity, give
them hope, reassurance, encourage them to balance education, career and extra-curriculum
activities, as well as helping the less fortunate ones get out of the streets by
using their latent talents as a ladder to self-actualisation regardless of race,
age, religion, political affiliation and/or sexual orientation.
