Ever since he was very young, Munhaire Lee had dreams of becoming a recording artiste. At the launch of his career, the rising star has released two songs, “Love Yours Refix” (Beauty in the Struggle) by J. Cole featuring himself and “Low Me Mek Me Live”. He adopted the moniker JahZ I Lee, a name that reflects his Rastafarian roots, and gives an insight into his style of music. Jah Z I see himself as an artiste painting a picture with his realistic words of wisdom.
“Music is the most viable medium to convey a message. Having an infinite imagination one begins to compose record and perform. If something is repeated, it then becomes a routine, if that routine is loved then it also becomes a passion” expressed JahZ I. Both songs were produced by Michael “Jagga” Barracks, Askelle and Brown Chopz from the Vision House Family, and Mark Cine Enigma. So far, JahZ I has been receiving tremendous feedback from both songs as they are regarded and greatly applauded for their deeply resonating and truly reflective themes.
“My response thus far has exceeded my expectations, there’s always that one fan that will come up to me and tell me how much they enjoy listening to my music. It is a joy to hear how my audience has taken to my music, and the great thing is I aim to offer difference in my approach. Some time ago my PR Manager, Susan Smith of Powerhouse Global Media, said to me that the world needs my talent and originality and those are words that have stayed with me.”
The upcoming sensation looks forward to a shining career in music and is currently busy in the studio cooking up a storm.
Recently, the Estate of the late Peter Tosh released a petition in efforts to have the Jamaican Tourist Board and the Government of Jamaica register The Peter Tosh Memorial Garden a National Historic Landmark. The Museum, located in Belmont, Westmoreland, was erected to preserve the life and legacy of the late Musician and original member of The Wailers. The Estate believes that recognizing the Museum as a Historic Landmark will protect it for generations as Tosh was an advocate for the legalization of Marijuana, fought for Equal Rights, and further expanded Jamaica’s Music and Culture.
Peter Tosh was born in Grange Hill, Westmoreland in 1944 and was known as a Musician, Reggae Artist, and Activist. He was a core member of The Wailers along with the late Bob Marley and Bunny Wailer where he received much success before embarking a solo career. He has collaborated with the likes of Mick Jagger of The Rolling Stones and recorded many great songs including “Stepping Razor“, “Legalize It“, “Johnny B Goode“, and penned songs such as “Get Up, Stand Up” and “400 Years” for The Wailers. Peter Tosh died on September 11, 1987 as a result of a home invasion. He was posthumously awarded the Order Of Merit in October 2012.
