PRESS RELEASE: @ProdiVOP876 To Host Album Launch This Month


Prodilaunch

Reggae recording artiste Prodi (formally known as Prodigal Son) will be hosting his first reggae album launch at Emmanuel Apostolic Church on April 24 at 8 p.m. The Circle Small artiste has stirred up much controversy with this move from gospel to reggae, but reminds his fans that God is still the head of his life. Prodi shared: “I am a Christian, and my choice to do positive music is, a personal one that I made with God”. Last June, Prodi released his Reggae EP Voice of The People, which was a success. This EP led to several international features, including one in the famed Rolling Stones magazine.

The album, Perfectly Imperfect From Kingston City, will feature 13 singles, inclusive of powerful hits such as Hustlers Anthem, Kingston City, Never Leave and Circle Small. Prodi and his ‘Yawd Movement’ kicked off 2015 with his much-talked-about performance at Rebel Salute and continued the year with much success. “I am very excited about this year’s achievements and I strongly believe that this year is the year I make bigger steps in reggae music,” he said.

Prodi has been planning his Devotion Tours in schools in Kingston and St Andrew and will be visiting a few community youth clubs to share his message through positive music. He added: “I get judged a lot and oftentimes by those who do not take the time to listen to the content of my music and the powerful messages that we share with people. “This album shows that even though we are perfectly made in the sight of God, we all make mistakes and, as such, we are perfectly imperfect”.

Prodi recently released the video for Never Leave and is on his promotional runs for the album.
