Chezidek Sounds For All to ‘UNITE’
Unite is the third single from Chezidek’s Hello Africa album, which was released this summer.
“So much things going on with black people ‘round the world, so wi have a lot to sey,” Chezidek disclosed.
It seemed Chezidek was destined to espouse black consciousness. The singer was born Desbert Johnson in St Ann, a lush rural parish on Jamaica’s north coast. It is also the birthplace of Pan African icon Marcus Garvey, and reggae legends Bob Marley and Burning Spear.
An elite band of Jamaican musicians worked with Chezidek on Hello Africa. They include keyboardist Robbie Lyn, bass player Donald “Danny Bassy” Dennis and drummer George “Dusty” Miller of The Firehouse Crew, guitarist Mitchum “Khan” Chin and bass player Flabba Holt of Roots Radics Band fame.
His career started as Chilla Rinch 25 years ago, but it is as Chezidek that he made his mark with producers like Philip “Fatis” Burrell of Xterminator Records.
Over the years, he has released eight albums which have yielded songs like the marijuana anthem, Leave The Trees, Call Pon Dem and Mash Dem Down.
Hello Africa is the second collaboration between Tad’s International Record and Chezidek — the first being Herbalist, released in 2009. It is executive produced by Tad Dawkins and Tad Dawkins Jr.
Hello Africa honors the remarkable run of quality recordings Chezidek has produced. Enjoy!
Unite – Chezidek’s 3rdd Single from his Smashing Hit Album, HELLO AFRICA.
Produced by: Desbert ‘ Chezidek’ Johnson.

Too often the words “Black Power” invoke a feeling of aggression, hostility, militancy and combativeness, however; that can’t be further from the truth. Made popular by Trinidad born and Howard University graduate Kwame Ture aka Stokely Carmichael, “Black Power” is a means to vocalize and achieve self-determination for a people that have been abused, marginalized, and racially oppressed.
This song is anchored by many voices to include my own, however the most impactful voices are the voices of Jaiden Collins (my son) flanked by el-Hajj Malik el-Shabazz aka Malcolm X! The two come from generations far apart, ironically the messages still resonate today. Dedicated to the many lives lost, today we share with you “UNBROKEN”.

Aka the breakthrough song. The anthem that allowed Teddyson John to connect with so many of you , especially outside of Saint Lucia. We’ve had some good times with ‘Allez’ haven’t we? Well we’ve recreated Allez in a special way for you. Caribbean Moscato promises to be a soulful journey with pure vibes and energy with my band the Teddyson John Project.
The smooth yet versatile Teddyson John (TJ) appears to be expanding and exciting our musical palates. While he has been subtly hinting and leaving clues, things seem to be officially out the bag, a new and daringly mellow version of TJ’s hit ‘Crème de la Crème’ (special edition) featuring St. Lucian hip-hop star Kayo, was unveiled, off his upcoming 2020 album ‘Caribbean Moscato’.
Caribbean Moscato is a highly musical but perfectly balanced piece, with soulful vocals and lightly intoxicating solos. A creation of Teddyson John, the TJ Project and 238 Square Miles, Caribbean Moscato is a unique and moving experience for all.
“As a Saint Lucian Brand(Music) Ambassador, being able to create this masterpiece with a partner like 238 Square Miles, whose purpose is authentic St. Lucian and Caribbean storytelling through art, creativity and passion; we believe this album has the potential to inspire other creatives to develop new interpretations of their art.” TJ expressed.
