“Real Ghetto Youths: Part 2” Premiers November 9

Twenty years ago, when a schoolboy named Omaall Wright followed an instinct that led him to become a founding member of the Area Youth Foundation, he was already a Jamaica Festival prize-winning poet and performer and in 2001 co-wrote the runner up Festival Song “Feel di Breeze”.

He was co-creator and featured performer in Area Youth’s productions over many years and in 2001 graduated with the Bachelor of Fine Arts in Drama from the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts. A prolific, multi-talented artist, Omaall “Majah Bless” Wright has an extensive portfolio of songs, music videos, plays and in 2015, he published “Garrison”, an anthology of poetry, prose and plays.

Today, he is premiering his second feature film, “Real Ghetto Youths: Part 2” , the long-awaited sequel to “Real Ghetto Youths” of 2009, both of which he wrote, produced, directed and performed in. Ten years ago when Majah had an idea for a film he wanted to make, he just did it – no complaining about lack of sponsorship or support. He took his time, mustered his resources and got on with it.

Do go see Real Ghetto Youths – Part 2!
