Reggae artiste Medda Wak is showing his commitment to his country and music with his debut single titled ‘Exceptional Parents'.

The artiste, who is focused on making a positive impact with the single, says the release comes right in time for the celebration of Mother’s Day on May 12.

The single ‘Exceptional Parents’, was performed and named from the theme of the 2016 staging of the Family Court’s Parenting Expo.

“I was working there that day, and I came up with the idea to write a song to outline issues faced by children as parent’s struggle to actively play their role," the artiste whose real name is Delwin Delgado Eaton, said.

"Parents aren’t actively playing their role, the absence of a parent whether it is a father or mother can have a negative impact on the nation’s youth, as a result, parents need to meditate and regroup in an effort to be able to offer encouragement and upliftment in homes."

‘Exceptional Parents’, produced under the Box Lunch Productions imprint, was engineered by Boxy and recorded at Tads International Studio. The single showcased the musical stylings of saxophonist Dean Fraser, 'Riff Raff' on the keyboard and 'Shak' playing the kette drums.

He attended Berwick Primary School before going on to St Mary's College in Above Rocks St.Catherine. He developed a love for music and began to work on his craft.

He obtained six CXC subjects and went straight into the construction industry. Whilst working with Howell's Construction and Metal Fabrication he gathered skills in welding, tiling and masonry before joining the JCF in 2010. 

The artiste, who is still a cop, is currently preparing for the release of other singles including 'Zoso', 'Stigma' and 'Wasteman' but, on May 12, all the focus is on his debut single, 'Exceptional Parents', which will be officially released on that day.

"Good parenting matters," he said.
