A firm believer in the mantra, “Never give up, work hard and be patient”, quick-witted lyricist and Jamaican recording artiste Zagga, born Astill Henry, always had an affinity for music, even whilst spending his formative years playing football and dabbling in electrical studies.
As the years passed the singjay continued to hone his skillset and soon thereafter released his first mixtape: “The Remix God”, to much adulation from members of the music & entertainment fraternity. The successful project amassed several thousand downloads. Impressed by the effort of his long-time friend, accomplished video director Ruption of RD Studios, decided to introduce Zagga to acclaimed producer Jordan McClure of Chimney Records. Recognizing the opportunity given, Zagga soon found himself in management discussions with the label.
After signing with Chimney Records, the singer soon relocated to Kingston from St. Ann, and began professionally pursuing his music career. The partnership yielded several fruitful projects such as “Remember the Days (Chill Spot Riddim), “Never Give Up”, (Tropical Escape Riddim) and “My Destination” (Rising Sun Riddim). Another of his singles titled “Change” released late 2011, went on to claim the top spot on numerous charts across the expanse of the European continent.
Now thrusted into the spotlight, Zagga realized the need to spawn his brand in an effort to gain more exposure and began working with other noted production outlets including Markus Records, Penthouse Records, Adde Productions and many more. Since then, his career has seen a major upsurge, with tracks such as his 2014 hit “My Destination”, “Free Up” (Happy Hour Riddim) featuring Tarrus Riley; placing him on some of the biggest platforms for the genres such as Reggae Sumfest, Rebel Salute, GT Taylor Extravaganza, Pepsi Refresh Tour, Cream Of The Crop and an extensive tour of Canada, U.S and Europe.
Since his foray into the industry and notable success, Zagga continues to focus his energies into elevating his craft and becoming that quintessential artiste. His music continues to be a testament to that.
