A Queensburgh musician is taking the nation by storm after releasing his upbeat debut single, ‘My Mamma Said’, recently.
Sugeshan ‘Suggz’ Govindsamy, who grew up in Silverglen, always dreamed of pursuing a career as a recording artist but did not have the means to do so at the time.
Through the combination of perseverance, determination and a ‘never-say-die’ attitude, he has released his debut single and will soon be launching his music video.
The talented individual said, “I am inspired by music as an art form. Music has a way of bringing together people from different walks of life as it is a universal language. You can communicate with people using the language of music,” he said.
Govindsamy began singing when he was in primary school.
“It is something I have always been passionate about and always dreamed of pursuing since I was a young boy. I have not actually studied the art of music. When I hear music that I like, I learn the lyrics and sing in tune. My fondest memories would be me singing in school when there were concerts being held. My journey has just begun and I am so proud of releasing a debut single that is currently aired on radio stations across the country,” added the talented musician.
The debut single shares with the audience Govindsamy’s life experiences since high school and how he built a solid foundation for his family.
The single also highlights how he takes life seriously but always at the back of his mind, had the will and drive to kick start a journey in the music career. The passionate singer has drawn inspiration from the likes of Michael Jackson Joe Thomas, Boyz II Men, Usher, Ne-Yo, Chris Brown, Ed Sheeran and John Legend.
“I want to inspire the youth of this country and give them hope with the music I produce. When many feel like giving up, I hope they look at me and my story to draw courage and inspiration to persevere to live their dreams. I hope to reach out to a wide audience, nationally and globally,” he added.
His goal is to perform and share the stage with global artists and icons.
“I try not to let my music career impact my family life and work. My family is very supportive of me going out to perform or going in to the studio to create more magic. When my family needs me, I will be there for them and that’s priority,” added the Queensburgh father.
