Reggae artiste Elijah Mawli is confident that he has what it takes to become a global superstar, but insists that is not the reason why he is doing music.
“I am not making music for material gains or fame, which is something that sets me apart from a lot of people. This approach gives me the freedom to create my music without being distracted by the glamour and the glitz of the music biz. Making music is a therapeutic experience for me. I make music for the love of it. I’m not worried about success. It will come when it comes,” said the artiste. The Rastafarian entertainer says he wants his music to inspire people to become the best version of themselves.
“I want my music to make people think on a higher level and improve their lives and aspire to a higher state of consciousness,” he said.
Elijah Mawli is currently promoting a new single, titled Gone With The Night. The single, which was produced by EastSyde Records, was released in January.
“This is one of those songs that was built around the microphone, nothing premeditated; it was just a vibe,” he said.
Elijah Mawli, given name Robert Aljoe-Joe-Al-Jahbar Henry, hails from St Andrew. He launched his career in 2019 with the release of a single titled Caribbean Love on the EastSyde imprint.
