 My journey has been one of many obstacles and by the grace of the good Lord I have overcome each challenge and faced new ones that have been exciting to tackle. My main point in doing modeling and acting is to set an example to anyone out there that has been told “you can’t”! I am living proof that “YOU CAN”! I want my posts to inspire you! I want them to make you smile! I want them to make you chase your dreams and never give up! Everything is within arms length and there are people out there willing to help you and cheer for you along the way! I will be that “somebody” cheering you on! I am blessed for the people in my corner and for the new ones I meet everyday.

Having been invited to be a part of Hammond’s Harmony House label, Ginjah began in 2000 and by 2001, he was on a tour opening for Beres Hammond several shows stretching across the major Caribbean cities, leaving behind a trail of satisfied patrons begging for more. “it was never an easy task opening for a musical icon like Beres Hammond,” Ginjah Admitted. He Added: “But I went out there and did my best and met the challenge with full force.” As Expected, with good work, comes more work. So Ginjah went on touring with Beres Hammond throughout the world, inclusive of places like Europe, Canada, the United States and Japan.
