Life is filled with many challenges, but it takes great determination and faith to move forward from them. 2020 has been a challenge for many mentally, but we take it a day at a time. Recording Artist Sekani BRGHTN reflects on his journey, and offers some positive words on his new single, “Do Well (Life)“.

Produced by and featuring Khaje, Sekani BRGHTN looks back at some of the past moments in his life like his migration to the US from Jamaica, dealing with the new life as an immigrant, trying to protect his mental health during challenging times, family issues and more. Despite all his experiences, he understands that there are others who are going through similar situations, and offers some encouragement.

When we asked about the creative process behind the track, he shared, “The idea for the song struck me as I was riding the Train thinking I never really delved into my life as an artist/person, so I did just that thinking of my journey from leaving Jamaica to where I am now knowing there has been similar people in my circumstances and wanted them to know they are not alone in the struggle.” Having made some developments in his creativity within the past couple years, Sekani looks to tackle the new decade with great music, and make his brand grow exponentially worldwide.
