Do we still close our eyes and wish upon a shooting star when we see them? Ever since the existence of a ‘Level Up’ the requirements to make oneself successful in life has been on the agenda. Wishes are like prayers, but the game remains the same when it comes to music. You cannot wish for fame or loyal fans, you have to earn it. Faith without work is dead, and a broken dream is a misfortune.

“ I’ll make it through… don’t you worry yuh ago make it someday soon, and all your problems that yuh facing yuh gonna make it through…”-Starface
Nadesha Edwards more popularly known as Starface has recorded with the acclaimed King of Dancehall and Grammy Awardee Beenie Man on the hit single “Ride or Die” produced by Konsequence Muzik and distributed by 21st Hapilos. She is directing her hopes and ambitions towards achieving a personal goal in music. The possession of a big mansion in the suburbs or penthouse upgrade is felt to be the American dream that most musicians aim for. However, Starface seems to be yearning for something more valuable in her song ‘Make It’ through the outpour of emotions. Despite the exhausted autotune, she made it work without sounding like a gimmickry. The lyrics are captivating because it reflects the ‘True Story’; success is born from struggles but it becomes easier when you accept the ugly days.
The repetition of ‘I’ll make it’ acts as a strength of affirmation for self-fulfillment, growth, and change within her life. It is also creating a chain of inspiration that can be passed on to others. The fight or blows of depression and suffering to the head will not last forever she assures the listeners.
“ Don’t worry yourself mama, don’t worry yourself papa just know say me deh yah and a work hard soon set it and make everything proper…” – Starface
The Lifetime Achievement Award for most of us is making something out of ourselves before our parents leave this earth. Starface has expressed this in her song and is not blind to the commandment of ‘Honor thy father and thy mother’ which is the first commandment with a promise.
“ Me dun know Rome nuh build inna one day so while the sun shine me deh yah a make hay gwaan hold di faith give thanks and a pray , betta mus’ come may way, me have life so me give thanks..” – Starface
Her use of famous proverbs complimented the message that she conveyed in her song.
She expressed that important work takes time with the reference of ‘Rome wasn’t built in one day’ and that we have to make the most of opportunities while we still have a chance to with the reference of ‘Make Hay while the Sun Shines’ a notion that is also expressed in The Bible, in Proverbs 10:5.
With her strong backbone, lyrical content, passion for music and effulgent personality, Starface is well on her way building her own empire. Growing up in Denham Town, Kingston, it is a constant struggle for the community. Appealing for help from the bloodshed that tends to stain the lives of children, parents and the elderly creates a stigma for the residents. However, with the legacy of talented icons such as Ken Boothe OD who also grew up in Denham Town dreams can become a reality. We are expecting Starface to be recognized globally, topping charts both locally and internationally. She’s #OHHSOVALID
