Jamaican dancehall artiste, Alkaline in an interview with Livefmghana.com revealed that he consumes herbs instead of food.
He said this while touching on what Ghanaians should expect at tomorrow’s MTN Pulse Concert which will be held at the Accra Sports Stadium.
“I don’t like food, I consume herbs”, he told Sammy Forson.
Alkaline says his music represents everything that society is afraid of and society represents everything that he is afraid of.
He comes to the fore with a bundle of hardcore rhymes, killer hooks and slick production, and undoubtedly one of ‘the Baddest” lyrist.
Describing himself as an ‘in di streets yute’, Alkaline, whose real name is Earlan Bartley, was born in 1993 in Kingston, Jamaica.
Alkaline’s first attempt at committing lyrics to paper was age ten, and by 12 he was already recording and producing his own records to his father’s delight.
He is a major Martin Luther King enthusiast and in addition to loving “life” and his music he lists fashion, fishing and playing video games among his passions.
His personal style is not that of a typical artist, but one with a sort of urban edgy with a twist hardcore appeal. One he dubs as dancehall meets urban pop rock culture.
