Dancehall singjay Kaream Kharizma knows that he is on the verge of a major breakthrough as his single, 'Purple Bimma' has helped him to carve out a niche for himself.
Released last year and produced by Audiotrixx Production, “Purple Bimma” song made it to a DJ Jason mixtape and the song started to gain traction in the streets. Excited by the response, he shot a video for the project in November 2016 which racked up thousands of views on youtube.
"It was a great look for me," he said.
He is seeking to build on that success with the release of his latest song, 'Good Luck Good Good', which was released in January 2017 on the GS7 Production label. That song will be a part of his upcoming six song EP called 'Purple Bimma' which will be released in early March.
Born Jeavoy Beharrie, August 6, 1995 at the Spanish Town hospital in St. Catherin, he was one of five children who was raised in a small community in Old Harbour known as Succaba Garden. Jeavoy attended the Innswood high school in the parish in St. Catherine where he completed his secondary education.
Jeavoy was exposed to a wide variety of music from a tender age by his father who himself was an aspiring musician, and used to own a sound.
"When my father got my mother pregnant, he got a job, and he looked after his family, he gave up his dream so right now, he is supporting me 100 per cent in my journey to be an artiste," he said.
Jeavoy explained how he got his unusual stage name.
"My middle name is Kareem and charisma means compelling attractiveness and charm that can inspire devotion in others, and that's what music brings, it inspires people," he said.
He voiced his first song in 2009 which was titled “Naah Mek no Man Kill Me” recorded by Jr. Brown from Vikings production, but the song suffered from lack of promotion. To appease his parents, he went back to culinary school where he completed two levels as a pastry chef in 2013.
Now, he is determined to pursue his dream of being a recording artiste.
"Look out world, here I come," he said.
He is booked to make an appearance at a Valentine's party called 'Love Sick' at the Genesis club in Old Harbour on February 14th.
