“If you have listened to some of my songs, you would notice that they have stories. I use my songs to tell stories. I think so far, the deepest song I have sung is Reggae Blues. The truth is that Reggae Blues was meant to be the kind of song that would make you just sit down and think about your life but we turned it into a song that would make you dance and forget about your sorrows.
In the chorus I said, ‘Even your boo has a boo’. Is that good news? My new song, Arabanko is not a diss song. It is just a feel good song from a deep mind. It is just a happy song,”
Described as a versatile singer and multi-instrumentalist, one will thing any genre of music you put in Harrysongs plates he will swallow it, but the hit maker says there is only one genre he cannot practice.
“I cannot rap to save my life. The few times I tried it in the privacy of my house, my friends told me to shut my mouth because I was just doing rubbish. I can handle all other genre of music except rap,” said the singer.”
The death of African global icon brought life into the career of Harrysong. Great was the joy, that when Harry saw the benefit of his tribute to Mandela tear flowed freely from his eyes.
Harrysong said, “That was the first time I experienced two new things in my life, because at that point I was going through a lot in life. It was a period when I was writing a lot of songs for people and when someone said I should do a tribute for Mandela, I replied that I had never met him before in my life but I heard the news of his death on the television.
So many artistes had done various songs for him but I remember that on that day we were waiting for someone to come for their studio session, I was advised to seize the opportunity and sing the tribute song for Mandela because I was inspired by his story and he was not only loved in South Africa but the whole world.
“After a week I was informed that the song had trended on social media and I was also told the amount it had fetched. I remember that I was in my house when my manager called me to tell me the good news and eagerly said that we were going to the Grammy award because of the song. He shouted, ‘see money’ and we were very excited about the development.
He told me to leave my house and meet him at a location fand rom there we went shopping and he took me to some other places. From there, I was supposed to perform somewhere in the north and I was crying all through that journey. I remember that Kcee had tried several times to get me a pass for Headies award, but with that song, I won an award. It was a privilege to sing the song.”
