The Rebel in Abajonai

Abajonai has always had an interest in music and rebel music is what he chants.

The artiste, whose real name is Hughgan Thompson, said he has been singing at concerts since he was attending school. During that time, he linked with the Germany-based Uplift Records. After leaving school, he recorded with Caveman Studio in St Catherine. In addition, he did some of his own recording on his own River Nile label.

He has songs like No Weak Heart, Hot Love, The Whole World Is Africa, Truth and Rights, Calling Out Your Name, Niley and Black I Am. He will soon release other songs like Changes and Genocide.

Abajonai said his songs, like his name, are heavenly and mystical.

"Is more like rebel music, making my people know more about their black selves, more of cultural vibration, more like a Nyabinghi chant," said the Bobo Shanti Rastafarian.

He said his music has been getting recognition in Portugal, Germany, France and the United States.

"People gravitate to me, is like magic," said Abajonai.

His biggest accomplishments to date are getting the opportunity to record for Tuff Gong Records in 2001, being billed to perform with Sizzla Kalonji, and Ernie Smith among other industry veterans, and performing at H.I.S. Majesty Earth Strong in 2008. He also had the opportunity of recording for Downsound Records, Solid Agency and Jump Out Label.

He is currently working on many new singles to be released late 2009. Abajonai intends to take his music to an international level and to always remain a positive role model for the youth, with good clean music. He also wants to establish his studio.
