Kid Nesian, the fast rising reggae sensation from Papua New Guinea, has collaborated with international dancehall star Chi Ching Ching for his latest release – “Lalomu”.

It’s been an interesting journey for the young 21 year old reggae singer. It was only 12 months ago when he put out his very first single “Stap Wantaim Yu” with his record label CHM Supersound. And since then his songs have hit no.1 on the Pacific Top 20 Charts, have charted in the Top 10 of the Australian Top 25 Reggae Charts, have received airplay from Reggae radio stations in the US, Europe and Latin America and have dominated radio stations around the South Pacific.

Kid Nesian is excited to be collaborating with the Jamaican dancehall star on his latest release, saying “I’m a big fan of Chi Ching Ching’s music, so I was super excited when he agreed to jump on the track. His style is so unique and I love the energy and vibe he brought to the song.”

Chi Ching Ching, himself a rising star in the Reggae/Dancehall scene, is the first artist signed to Dutty Rock Productions, the label owned and founded by multi-platinum music superstar Sean Paul. He recently featured on Sean Paul’s hit song ‘Crick Neck’ (10M views) and recently toured around Europe with him. Chi Ching Ching will be releasing his own debut album this year.

“Lalomu” is an Island/Jawaiian reggae track that features beautiful harmonies and RnB vocals from Kid Nesian fused with Jamaican stylings from Chi Ching Ching. It is sung in both English and Motu. “Lalomu” is a Motu/PNG expression meaning “I’m Yours”.

The song will be released worldwide on Fri 27th April 2018 and will be available on all major music platforms for streaming and downloads.

Kid Nesian Looking to Branch Out with Latest Release ‘One Kiss’

asd

With the success of his first 2 singles performing extremely well around the South Pacific, Kid Nesian is looking to branch out to new markets with his newest offering ‘One Kiss’.

 

His first single ‘Stap Wantaim Yu’ was a big hit all around the South Pacific, gaining radio airplay in Australia, Samoa, Tonga, Guam, Marshall Islands + French Polynesia and ultimately reached No.4 on the Australian Top 25 Reggae Dancehall Charts. His follow up single ‘Tamine’ was also a hit and received radio airplay around Polynesia + Micronesia while reaching No.8 on the Pacific Top 20. But it was his most recent release that has really made waves, with his reggae cover of The Scorpion’s classic hit “Wind of Change” making a big splash internationally.

 

The song received support from major reggae websites from the US, UK, Germany and Australia and received radio airplay in Latin America and Europe. It’s also currently no.1 on the Pacific Top 20 Charts.

 

Though thrilled with the response to his first 3 singles and happy to know that he is helping to take PNG music to other regions, he is hoping his next single can branch out even further and can continue to reach new fans in different markets.

 

“Why can’t PNG music from PNG artists become popular in other countries? We have so much talent and creativity here, it would be great to have a local artist fly the flag for PNG in the music charts in countries all over the world. Hopefully Kid Nesian can begin to pave the way for local artists.” says Braden Chin, Music Division Manager for CHM Supersound.

 

He has become popular for his fresh sunny island reggae style, however ‘One Kiss’ is a slight departure from that signature sound of his. He describes his new release as a Reggae Love ballad with a Pop/RnB feel. He knows his fans will be surprised to hear something different to what they’re used to, but he is confident they will embrace this new sound. “Reggae is no longer just one style anymore, music today is fused with many different genres, so I wanted to try something different for my next release and I think my fans will really enjoy it” says Kid Nesian.

dAdiigii’s Latest Song Pay’s Tribute to His Late Wife

Mostly well known for his big hits that pack the dancefloors at clubs and concerts, popular PNG artist dAdiigii reveals another side of himself with his latest offering ‘Missim Yu Tumas’

The song is a tribute to his late wife and mother to his two children – Maggeret Gomara – who passed away in 2013, from a rare cancer while he was on tour away up in the Highlands. In the song dAdiigii shows a rare vulnerability that you don’t often see from well known artists.

Her passing had a massive impact on him as he struggled to cope with the loss and he essentially went into a period of mourning in which he struggled to find meaning in life. ““I felt empty so I left work, I gave up on music and went back to Lae to be closer to my immediate family to cope with it. My dad also passed away in the same year,” he says.

Ultimately he found a way to summon the strength to carry on and to move forward with his life and this song is his way of expressing himself and the emotions he struggled to express during that difficult time.

Stylistically this is also a change for dAdiigii as ‘Missim Yu Tumas’ is essentially a country rock love ballad, something very different to his signature local pop sound which his fans love him for.

The song and video will be out from Mid July 2017
