Govana says his family was a big inspiration for his debut album.
Govana says the idea for his new album ‘Humans and Monster Are Not The Same (H.A.M.A.N.T.S)’ actually came from his son and grandmother.
According to Govana, his grandmother inspired the sound of the album, while the title came from his son.
Last week, the deejay took to Instagram to announce that the album was dedicated to his grandmother. He says she always wanted him to drop music she and her church sisters could listen to.
The “Champ” deejays says his biggest regret is that she isn’t here to witness him fulfill that promise.
Govana says this album was very special to him as he got to showcase a totally different side.
“I’m more known for the ‘gyallis’ type a song dem and the hardcore street thing dem, so fi do like a completely clean album, I was wondering how people a go receive it,” he explained.
The 4th Genna deejay says he is thrilled with the reactions from fans so far.
“Me never get so much traction on any of my social media pages about nothing weh me release before this. This is for a different audience, this is not for my core fans, this is for a more mature crowd, but dem (core fans) accept it wid open arms, so me feel good within mi self,” he said.
While the idea arguably came from his grandmother Govana says that the title came from his son.
“I had like five or six songs off it and me did a play it for one of my elders weh me respect when it comes on to music. While playing the tracks to him, my son was there. After I finished playing the tracks he (the elder) said to me, ‘Yow yute, you are a musical monster innu, yuh nuh normal’,” Govana told The Star.
“When me leave from me bredren yard now and a go home, my son said, ‘Daddy, why did your friend just call you a monster?’ I said to him we were talking about music. And he said, ‘Yea daddy, but humans and monsters are not the same’, and so that’s where the whole title came from. When he said it, me a say to myself, dat sound a way, and it hit me so me just run wid it.”
