Why the name Garvey Royal?
haha Garvey was a name given back in high school by my classmates reason being i loved reggae so much. Royal -because i’m a son of a king (God).
You are one of the celebrated dancehall artist right now, why dancehall music?
Thanks alot. Basically I grew up listening to reggae/dancehall music, always admired the culture and everything about it. By that the passion grew and here we are, doing what we know best.
On that note, why gospel music?
It feels great glorifying the giver of this talent. Creation glories creator. That’s the main reason i chose gospel music.
You are referred as the class teacher why?
hahahahaha, Class teacher was a song that gained massive airplay which most people related with and got to know Garvey Royal in a better way.
How did class teacher change your life?
To be honest a lot has changed, More shows, more respect in the industry and Glory to God the royal family has grown massively.
Your latest 2 songs again/ no chorus are receiving massive airplay currently. How does it feel?
It feels great, I won’t lie, and I don’t take anything for granted. This are some of the things i used to pray for years back. Hard work and being patient is paying slowly by slowly. Looking forward to see what God has in store for me.
Which producer have you worked with?
I have worked with Majic Mike in all my songs, and he has been a blessing in my career. However I have been featured by Real time records in a project which will be dropping real soon.
