DJ Karim @ Rock Jamaica in Los Angeles

For the original fans of Rock Jamaica you will remember our monthly DJ ‘DJ Karim’ who is also one of the hottest producers in Jamaica. We have big plans to bring him back to west coast when his schedule can free up but in the mean time he is killing the music scene with crazy beats including the hit by upcoming artist Protoje ‘Arguments’. The music video for ‘Arguments has been sticking to the number one spot for five weeks in Jamaica and there is no sign of it slowing down. Check out the music video below followed by an article from the Jamaica Observer on the song.

New singer on the rise, Protoje, has been locked in the number one spot on the video charts for the past five weeks with his lovers rock tune Arguments. The song, which was produced by former Renaissance Disco selector DJ Karim, has been enjoying rotation on radio.

For Protoje, a career in music was inevitable. His father is former Calypsonian Lord Have Mercy, and his mother is 1970s Breakfast in Bed singer Lorna Bennett. His cousin is noted producer Donovan ‘Don Corleon’ Bennett.

“I feel really good about how things are working out. The video has made people aware of who I am and what I have to offer to the music fraternity. This musical journey that I have been trodding has really opened my eyes to the industry and it has also prepared me immensely to this point,” Protoje said in a recent interview with this column.

Asked what was the story behind the song Arguments, Protoje said, “It’s about the hardships of being in a committed relationship. It’s like you just broke up with someone and you are getting involved with another person. I have to say thanks to my sister Leann, who directed the video. The message in the song came across in the video.”

Born Oje Ollivierre, Protoje began studying music at an early age. The 27-year-old who attended Munroe College, is preparing to release the singles Used to Be with veteran singer John Holt and Wrong Side of the Law.
