GAZA SIM - ALWAYS Oje Ollivierre, popularly known as Protoje, is a musical genius in his field that he classifies as Dub Style Reggae. Having been in the music industry for eight years, he's now reaping the fruits of his labour after significant success following the single 'Arguments'. For a new artist to break into the reggae/dancehall scene in Jamaica is equally as hard as it is for a R&B singer to break into the music industry in the U.S. However, Protoje stuck to what he loved and though it's been a long journey he's intent on getting his music noticed on an international level. Protoje manages to fuse a vin- tage reggae sound whilst keep- ing it contemporary, and the incorporation of live instrumen- tals is what reggae is all about. His musical inspirations include Hugh Mundell, Black Uhuru and Winston Mcanuff which further sheds light on how his personal reggae style was born as their music is now be considered old- fashioned reggae. Bob Marley wanted to "free the people with music" and Protoje is on a similar page as he wants to "free the people with art", music being his artistic contribution. Protoje recently dropped the music video to his song 'No Lip- stick' from his sophomore album entitled Seven Year Itch released earlier this year. The video is refreshing with its emphasis on nature and the scenic country- side with a scene in particular that brings to mind Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. He has also collaborated with Ky- Mani Marley on his single 'Rasta Love', which too is a personal favourite.
