fabian-marley-photo-1.jpgConscious reggae singer, Fabian Marley, is heading to France this week to officially kick off the European leg of an exciting promotional campaign for his new single, Nah Say We Poor, on the Massive Entertainment Group label.

This will be Marley's first time in Paris, France and the singer is overflowing with enthusiasm and positive vibes as he sets out on this all-important journey. He is keen on moving away from the drama associated with his bombshell announcement two years ago that he is the first son of Reggae icon Bob Marley, and instead wants to focus on making a name for himself. According to Fabian, who wears many hats, including those of singer, song-writer, composer, arranger, producer and accomplished musician, he is ready to put his career forward and let the public judge him based solely on his talent.

"I know that the media will want to pursue a particular line of questioning," Marley said quietly, "but the truth is that this is now a family matter and such matters are best discussed behind closed doors. I want the world to appreciate and love 'Fabian' for the talent that I was born with instead of who my father or mother is.


"However, I am also very aware that a man's past is a crucial part in deciding his own, individual destiny therefore in that sense, you will never leave your past behind," added Marley, who describes himself as "a loving youth who cares for people regardless of race, colour or creed".

He will be accompanied to France by his manager, Clayton Thomas, CEO of Massive Ent Group, which is based in the US. Quite understandably, Thomas is Marley's staunchest supporter, and although he admits that he heard of the singer through music industry links, who were eager to include information on Fabian's heritage, Thomas says that it was the artiste's own raw talent that was the ultimate factor in making the management decision.

Thomas, too, is anticipating hitting the promotional trail and feels that Europe in particular will prove a great place to expose Fabian's artistry. Nah Sey Wi Poor, along with another single Through the Fire, both of which were produced by legendary producer, Clive Hunt, were recently released by Massive Entertainment. However, Thomas pointed that the focus is on the former, which is playing on several radio stations in Jamaica, the wider Caribbeanand and within the US. He noted that the feedback has been "very positive and encouraging" and added that the accompanying music video has already been packaged. Thomas also explained that the Paris trip had been set back by one week, owing to the late granting of the required visas.

"But everything is good now and we will be leaving on Wednesday night," Thomas assured.

According to Fabian, who was taught music by two legends, Johnny "Dizzy Moore and Roland Alphonso of the Skatalites, Nah Say We Poor, is an inspirational song which he wrote during period of "drought" when he was made to realize that even in rough times, it is important not to complain, but to always give thanks.
