UK producer has high hopes for Kibaki single | Entertainment
June 08, 2021
UK-based independent producer Gregory Harper believes that message-based music remains the best vehicle to reach disenfranchised youth and can help them escape their tough living conditions.
He has been collaborating with producers and artistes to create conscious singles that can help to elevate the minds of youth from the ghetto.
One of those singles is Kibaki’s highly rated Gangstaz Paradise which was released last week on the Arpervisionz label.
“When I do music, I try to ensure that there are messages there for the upliftment of the youths, that’s what so important about Kibaki’s song. It teaches youths how to survive the ghetto, persevere and go for their dreams,” Harper said.
The producer grew up in Grants Pen, St Andrew, where he attended New Day All-Age School, before going on to Ardenne High School where he excelled in the school’s drama club. It was during this time that he met some DJs and entertainers, and that stoked his love for the entertainment field.
When he graduated, he expanded on his love for the entertainment industry by organising live events and eventually gained a reputation as an events promoter in the late 1990s. He later migrated to the UK.
