D’Angel says Marco Dean is her future king of the dancehall
The lady of dancehall, D'Angel, successfully staged her first Instagram Live mini concert to approximately 15,000 eyes last Friday. The entertainer gave her fans on Instagram and Facebook 30 minutes of their favourite tracks as she accepted requests. But in the midst of showing off her talent, the entertainer made a strong declaration about her teenage son and his future in music.
While performing her hit single Stronger, D'Angel gave an emotional shout-out to her son, Marco Dean Davis.
She revealed that giving birth to him made her more determined to chase her dreams. She mentioned his own talents as she dubbed him the future king of the dancehall.
In an interview with THE STAR, D'Angel explained that while neither she nor Marco Dean is in any rush to jump-start his musical career, she says it is inevitable, as music is in his DNA (his dad being Beenie Man).
NUMBER ONE PRIORITY
"Marco has always been my number one priority and yes, he's my future dancehall king because he has double dose of talent from me and his dad. Music is in Marco's blood, so he couldn't escape," she said. "Marco is a talent and a leader. From day one, I'm in support of his talent and growth 100 per cent. Music comes natural for him, but right now he's just enjoying his education. The world soon see more of his talent."
The entertainer explained that she's well aware that even with immense talent, the music landscape can be difficult to manoeuvre.
Having had her fair share of trials, she expressed that if her son decides on a career in music, he will be ready to face all obstacles.
"I don't think that (negativity) will really affect him that much. His parents are public figures and he sees the day-to-day challenges that come with it. The thing I love about my son is he understands my job and knows D'Angel is a persona, an artiste. As long as he keeps that in mind when it comes to his own career, he'll be fine," he said.
Marco Dean made his musical debut as a toddler back in 2010 when he lent his vocals to the intro for the song Time of My Life, a collaborative effort between his parents.
Since then, Marco Dean has participated mainly in school concerts, but back in 2016, when he was 10, he and his friend Jordan recorded a rendition of Chris Brown's Grass Ain't Greener.
