Upcoming artiste, Sahie (pronounced Sah-E) is so appalled with all the killing, rape and violence directed towards women and children, in particular those living in Jamaica, that he has put his feeling in a song entitled Land We Love.
Produced by Omari Abrahams of Birthright Music, the song, which has been described by critics as "timely and appropriate", has been receiving much love by radio and also on the streets. In the poignant single, Sahie questions: "Whe the country a come to/We youth dem no safe inna school nor church/ Sweet sweet Jamaica land we love/Whe it a come to..."
Sahie whose real name is Kiplin Reid explained that recent events in the island have shook him to the core because "this is something that could reach any one of us."
"Jamaica never used to be like this...the daily murders, the killing of women and our children. As I ponder these things, the reality hit me hard and I had to write this song. I have been getting a lot of positive feedback and while that in itself is good, the real message that I am sending to the heartless people who are committing these crimes is that they need to stop," the singjay declared forcefully.
Sahie, who, although not signed to Birthright Music, is currently working on a number of projects with the one-year-old outfit.
The singjay, who was born in Kingston, developed a passion for music began at a young age which was fostered by his family and friends, including the great Gregory Isaacs and Josey Wales who saw his talent.
He began his musical journey by performing at stage shows in the area where he grew up. With his talent gaining more recognition he eventually started to record and voice for various producers including Payday Music Group who works with such artists as Bounty Killer, Movado and Sizzla to name a few.
SAHIE has a voice that is unique and fresh. His talent can be heard on singles like 'Chat Away' (True Stories Riddim) and 'By the Will of God' (Bad Intro Riddim).
