Jamaican-born, NY-based recording artiste and restaurateur Peppa Ceed is preparing to take to local airwaves with his latest single “Party Time”. Released in mid-December, the Singjay said the single, which featured Dancehall artiste Gully Bop has been making rounds in the clubs in New York. “I am hoping to have similar or even better luck here in Jamaica. That would be a plus for my career as Jamaicans are the hardest music lovers to place so when they embrace your work, you know you are doing a good thing,” he said. “Party Time” was produced by Peppa Ceed’s Hot Peppa Records.
Peppa Ceed, whose given name is Garvin Hussey, spent his earlier years in Golden Spring, St Andrew. His introduction to music came when he began singing back-up for some of his friends at a community studio. “In those days you had to rehearse sometimes for months to get it right,” he said. Peppa then migrated to New York after completing his Secondary Education at Mount James All-Age School. While living in America life still proved to be a struggle for him which prevented him from continuing to pursue music as a career. He then diverted his attention to operating a West Indian-style restaurant “Peppa Ceed Jerk Chicken Restaurant” in New York. In 2014, he released the single “Lebron James” which he said is still being played in small clubs in the Tri-state area. This was followed by “Whine Fi The Peppa” in 2015.
