Deep Jahi has teamed up with Deeclef and South African artiste Buffalo Souljah for Guide My Path which was released on Friday, December 18.
According to Deep Jahi, the track is reflective of all the social ills taking place globally, particularly the coronavirus pandemic.
Deep Jahi said despite each individual artiste living in separate nations, the trio highlights that irrespective of location, everyone is experiencing the same reality.
He further said a good spiritually uplifting song was necessary for these troubled times.
“Well in times like these where the world is going through a pandemic, the beat spoke to me musically. The idea of seeking protection from the Creator came to mind.”– Deeclef
“This is a big song, a great feature with a positive message which is something that most Africans can relate to,” said Buffalo Souljah.
“So far, the song and the rhythm are receiving so much love and this is a big deal for me as an African artiste who does reggae and dancehall music and reaching international heights through a feature like this,” added Buffalo Souljah.
Producer Jerome Elvie of Natural Bond Entertainment said having worked with all three artistes before, he thought it was necessary for the trio to collaborate on this particular track.
“I have worked with these talented artistes on one of my recent projects called Gold Leaf rhythm and I found a lot of similarities with their approach to perfecting their craft. They are very musically inclined and what I hold in high esteem is their professionalism. With that said, I had to put this collaboration together because I knew the potential was there for a hit,” explained Elvie.
“Deeclef was the first of the three to hear the beat and based on what’s going on in the world today, each artiste just decided to add their touch to the beat. They all can relate to what’s going on in the world,” added Elvie .
DeeClef, who was born in Jamaica and now resides in New York, noted that he elated to be a part of the project that he described as ‘inspiring’.
“Well in times like these where the world is going through a pandemic, the beat spoke to me musically. The idea of seeking protection from the Creator came to mind. With that said, incorporating the experiences and what each of us has faced, we basically were singing the same tune of what we are currently facing,” said Deeclef.
