From Gangster Ways to Positive Teaching through Music– Nicha-B

 

Going by the stage name, Nicha-B, he sends out an invitation to visit the island and reminds us of our school time love; those are two of his hit songs that have been rocking the airwave locally and regionally.

Nicha B presents music with a message he describes as positive and one that he hopes many would adhere to.

Though the sound of his music hints to influences of R&B, Reggae and Dancehall, Nicha himself doesn’t classify his music. He calls it, “Its Nicha music”.

Inspired by his past life, this 21-year-old father of an infant son was once caught up in the gang culture that is gripping this 68 square mile island. He writes from the heart and about life. However, Nicha was not always on such a positive path.

He tries not to make an issue of it, because he does not want the focus to be on what he was, but on his music now, and the message promoted through the lyrics.

Nicha speaks of an incident in which he almost lost his life to a rival gang member. According to him, he had just lost too many friends and having almost lost his own life he was faced with the decision to take stock of what he wanted for the future.

He left the island and migrated to England where he underwent some positive self training and motivation and began focusing on something he loved, music.

Following the birth of his son, Nicha returned to the island, ready to spread his message through his music.

Where does Nicha want to reach in his musical career? “I want to go international with my music and my message. I want to be in a position where I can help those who need help, where I can help my mother and do better for my son,” said Nicha.

So next time you turn on your radio and hear these songs, ‘Welcome to St. Kitts’ and ‘School time love’, its Nicha B.
