“Lucky You” – Nanko
Nanko was born in Jamaica in 1981. This is all of the information I was able to find about Nanko online, but in my search I also came across Nanko’s Myspace profile which featured some of his newer music. It was all pretty good, but more importantly it’s message was always positive. Other reggae artists such as Gyptian and I-Wayne have taken similar approaches, but many have not had great success outside of the Caribbean.
“Lucky You,” is about the singer seeing another man with a family and wanting that stability for himself. Modern reggae could take a page out of Nanko’s book in my opinion, I hope you agree.
