‘I tell myself’ that Porgie and Murda seem to be turning their music/comedy act into a serious business venture, ‘and myself tell me yow!’
If you recognise any familiar lines in that statement, credit must be given to these two young entertainers, who have now created a brand that has gone viral and one which they told Barbados TODAY, is being developed into a serious business initiative.
With many people, primarily youngsters, all over Barbados already singing the refrain condense, condense, condense (from their hit song Condense) and ‘I tell myself… and myself tell me…’, Porgie and Murda will be producing a back-to-school package next month “at affordable prices.”
The duet said the package will comprise such items as bags, pencil cases, sharpeners and erasers.
“The demographics is mainly kids. Next month we hope to get this on the road … for sale, but at very low prices for children,” Murda pointed out. “Because we love children, we are doing everything for children,” he added.
Declaring that they would be “real” Bajan in their entertainment, the actors are looking to put this country “on the map even more.”
“You got Rihanna, Hal Linton, Shontelle, Levi Franklin and J-Co. We intend to do the same. We going international,” they echoed. “We just pushing ourselves and Barbados,” added Porgie, who agreed with his partner that they would be performing all genres of music. Since their releasing their hit song Condense, for Crop-Over this year, the two young entertainers have had offers to perform in Trinidad, New York and England this year, to which they are still to confirm with the booking agents. However, they intend to accept the offers. firstname.lastname@example.org
