Belgium Reggae Artiste https://youtu.be/BhWunq64D68 Don G - Nah Give Up [Official Music Video HD] From The Reggae Ep (You Reap What You Sow) Don G is currently based in Europe, and is pleased that his presence is highly appreciated and accepted there: ‘’I could see the impression and the reaction from the fans when ever I perform on any stage here in Europe, because they hear the good message and positiveness of what I deliver. I have performed in many different countries such as Germany, France, Luxembourg and Belgium, touring with Irie Crew and Crossfire Sound System.” He performs mainly at club events around Europe and also at the Ruhr Reggae Summer Festival in Durtmund, Germany, a major annual festival. He was also featured with a live interview on Party Time Radio, one of the biggest radio & tv stations in Paris. Don G is a unique Reggae Singer from Riversdale, St. Catherine, Jamaica. While in high school, he was given the opportunity to perfom on stage by ARP (A Raw Perspective). His talent was recognized and he was encouraged to join the group, New Faze Krew. This was a Reggae/RnB Group, which earned third place in the 2003 TVJ Reggae Trail Talent Show’s grand finale in St.Thomas, Jamaica. The group was doing well locally until a few of the members migrated to attend college. Don G then took his career to another level by going solo. In the ensuing years, he recorded music and appeared on TV shows such as Smile Jamaica (TVJ), but it was not until early 2011 when he recorded the single ‘’What Goes Around” that he became a known name on the reggae scene with his songs being played on local and international radio stations. The music video for “What Goes Around” remained at the #2 position for one month, while getting rave reviews. Throughout his career, Don G has looked towards his long list of role model legends in the reggae and dancehall industry such as Bob Marley, Dennis Brown, Beres Hammond, Jah Cure, Tarrus Riley and Romain Virgo, among others, as his source of inspiration. Don G’s music highlights the day to day struggles people face and his latest song ‘’We Need A Change’’ addresses the crime surge in Jamaica, a wave that periodically affects Linstead, the once-sleepy market town where he grew up. ‘’We Need A Change’’ is produced by Linstead-born Omar “Bobo Omar” Phillips who operates the One Tree Records label out of B rooklyn, New York. The song is done on the Train Line Riddim and can be found on digital platforms. Summer 2018, Don G will be performing at Roots Town Festival staging in Luxembourg, September 15, 2018 and other festivals throughout Europe. https://youtu.be/Y3Vx1k_mlk0 WHAT GOES AROUND
