Highlighting International Liberian Artists on Their Way Up Part 4

first_imgA famous Liberian US-based R&B singer known as Jaway has released his newest single called “When Will We Learn”.The song appears to defy the taboo of most cultures that there is nothing of the past that doesn’t affect either the present or the future.His lyrical abilities and the rhythm mix in this song are exceptional.Its message grasps the mind with emotional feeling which hold great power when listening to it.In an exclusive interview with Lib LIFE, the singer revealed the true meaning of his latest track and what inspired him to write such an amazing song.  “What inspired me in writing such a song was almost everything.  Our shortcomings today reveal that we refuse to learn from the past thinking that we are smarter than our history,” he stated in his profile release.“The only difference between our past and the future is how they are presented, but the past still does exist, says Jaway.According to Jaway, if people start taking a keen look into history, they will notice that the same tactics of ignorance and fear are still being used today.“Our past is the most painful, hurtful and devastating experiences we tend not to speak about,” Jaway says,“But, by putting those particles of our past under a magnifying glass, it will allow us to create a wider, clearer and better path for our future,” he said.Born and raised by a single mother and grandmother, Jaway was recruited into the church choir at a very young age.His first musical experience he remembers was against his will.“I was dragged to church kicking and screaming. You see, it was not so much that I did not want to sing in the choir. I was just more interested in sports, going to the beach and playing with my friends”, he smiled.Jaway released his first album in 2009 called Decontee, which means “There’s time for everything”, in his native Kru dialect. He also added that his 14 year experience in the Liberian civil war are reflected in his first album.In 2009, Jaway was nominated for “Artist of the Year” at the Liberian Entertainment Awards (LEA). In May 2010, he topped the LA- R&B chart for Reverbnation. In June of 2014 he came in at top three of LA’s Reverbnation R&B charts.“We should learn that history is our best lesson. We deserve the freedom to be who we are and to live happily without fear about the past” he shared.His music is available on iTunes, Amazon, YouTube, Spotify and Reverbnation.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
