Turban X gets Mother's Day boost with 'Momma's Words'

  As Mother's Day approaches, reggae artiste Turban X is overjoyed that his tribute song, 'Momma Words', has been generating such a positive feedback in ethnic communities in Europe and the Caribbean.   
 
"The feedback has been tremendous, the song is constantly requested over and over again on a radio station, Unlimited Radio in England of about 30,000 listeners. Plus it is playing on a number of radio stations in the Caribbean and Europe," Turban X said.
 
Spurred by the rave reviews from radio disc jocks, Turban X has quickly bankrolled a video to promote the superb track.  The success is even sweeter given that Turban X said his mother played such as critical role in his life.
 
"I wanted to honour my mother for the sacrifice she has made for me and my siblings and also to all women who have and will bring forth a child into the world and will love and care for them," the artiste who was born Warren Whyte, said.
 
 
He even conceptualised his stage name as a tribute to his mother. 
 
"She used to wear a tie-head (turban) when she wondered on how to provide for 10 children. The X! As a musician, I x myself out of the nonsense," he said. 
 
Turban X has carved out a reputation for his soulful delivery on his songs where his voice bleeds over the tracks as he tackles subjects like abuse, religion and relationships. 
 
"My music is fuelled by my experiences, that's why my emotions are so raw and real. My music is my everything but I try to bring a positive message within," he said.
 
Born north of Kingston, Jamaica, in the parish of St. Andrew, Turban X grew up as one of ten children. He migrated to the USA several years ago but continued to hone his craft. He last returned to Jamaica in August 2016 to record a number of songs at local studios. He has performed in several venues with some of Jamaica's top reggae artistes such as John Holt, Ernie Smith, Bushman, Brigadier Jerry and Beenie Man. At one point he also opened up for Sanchez. 
 
He will be performing in New York on May 5th, and he is also booked to appear in Jamaica on August 5th 2017.
