Reggae Artist I WAYNE!
I Wayne wants to remind listeners of an essential truth — that life is a gift for which we can be grateful.
“I just praise life, just deal with it naturally,” says I Wayne. “There’s nothing wrong with praising the sun, moon and stars and the wind, and all that create balance. Life is love and love is life.”
“...a lot of artists have been glorifying death and destruction... I Wayne flipped that and focused on life.” - Neil Edwards, Executive Producer
