New “Arguments” On The Music Scene With Protoje
Written by Raxann Chin-Anguin*
Contributed by Berette Macaulay of SeBiArt.
Protoje was born into a musical family. His mother, Lorna Bennett, is an attorney-at-law and reggae icon, best known for the 1972 hit, ‘Breakfast in Bed.’ His father, Michael Ollivierre, also known as Lord Have Mercy, is a notably successful athletics coach and former Calypso King in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.
It was not long before he helped to spearhead the Vendetta Sound System, cooperating with his cousin, Donovan “Don Corleone” Bennett.
With his 2008 releases, “Arguments” and “Dread,” featuring on the local airwaves with remarkable success, there is little doubt among critics that he is indeed a sensation. Protoje is not just a mere musician but a student of music, which reflects in his craft.
He’s currently working on a song with John Holt that is a masterpiece to say the least! He’s been featured on RETV, Smile Jamaica, The Jamaica Star, Hype TV, and other local media.
The video for his single Arguments premiered April 30th on Hype TV.
