Laden: Dancehall artist on the rise!!

Growing up without a father didn't impact negatively on the life of 23-year-old Okeefe Aarons. He, however, developed a special bond with his mother despite having to relocate from Kingston to St Elizabeth at an early age.

"My mother built a house in St Elizabeth and we moved there when I was young. My mother wanted to leave the garrison because of the violence. During that time I developed a special bond with my mother. Right now she's my biggest fan," said Aarons who is known in the music world as the up-and-coming artiste Laden.

Laden's star is about to shine bright in the sky, having logged generous airtime both at radio and in the dancehall with his latest single Time To Shine. Produced by Stephen McGregor, Time to Shine which is currently riding the charts, has somewhat placed Laden into the spotlight.

"Digicel Rising Stars helped out a lot in terms of exposure. It made it easier for people to recognise me and it also got me the opportunity to record for producers," he informed.
Laden recently wrapped up the video shoot for Time to Shine. The video was shot in various sections of Kingston including Tivoli Gardens, CPTC and Big Ship studio.
Michael 'Biggs' Burbridge took over the directing duties, while Nadia Stanley handled the production.

"The video is about me just entering the music industry and then the Digicel Rising Stars competition came about. It's basically wanting to get that break to shine," Laden explained.
Some of Laden's recent projects include the songs Working Hard which was produced by Daseca; Anytime (featured on the beauty and the beast rhythm from TJ Records); and Inside With You (featured on the Old Crep rhythm from Chimney Records). Watch Video
