GRAMMY Award-winner, Damian 'Junior Gong' Marley is currently in studio working on material for his fourth solo project — a follow-up to his Welcome to Jamrock.
Marley, the last child of reggae icon Bob Marley, has also taken on the role of producer and businessman working on various projects under the Ghetto Youths label. Among the artistes he will be working on releasing albums for singjay Wayne Marshall.
As he prepares to drop his latest studio album, he continues to promote a series of singles. The video for his latest Set Up Shop will be released in the region this weekend.
After months of fine-tuning, the video will debut in the region on LIME TV on today and tomorrow on CVM TV's Onstage hosted by Winford Williams.
Marley says he has chosen the Caribbean as the first recipient of the video, but has hopes that it will do well internationally. Set Up Shop is the second video to be released by the deejay since the start of the year, the first being Affairs of the Heart, which was shot by American photographer B+ in South America.
The video was shot by director Winston 'Tyson' Mayhew in late January in two locations, St Catherine, Jamaica, and at the Marley's Tuff Gong Studio.
The song Set Up Shop speaks to creating opportunities in hard economic times no matter the difficulties. Throughout the song, Marley makes mention of well-known Jamaican towns and communities — from the 'ghettos' to the commercial and tourist areas — encouraging everyone to work hard to achieve their goals.
