From Thug To Award Winner, The Story Of Daxx Kartel

He has sang many songs like ‘Spectacular’, ‘Self Service’ featuring dancehall queen Sheebah among many others but ‘Baala’ has for sure built what we may call too much mileage for him from last year when he released it up to Friday the 4th of much when it won him 3 awards at the Zzina awards.

According to what he said, Daxx Kartel was once a thug on the streets snatching people’s phones five years back before he met veteran Ragga singer Ragga Dee who introduced him to the music world an act that changed him to a better man and a fast rising recording artiste at that.

“This is my first award in life (shakes head).Five years back I was stealing phones on streets but now am stealing awards.” Are the words he personally confessed but like they say change is a fact of life, the ‘Baala’ hit singer is now a changed person and one the talented fast rising artistes.

We got in touch with Daxx Kartel where we asked him whether it is music that changed him and he had this to say. “Music did not really change me but it is part of because I was still in school so I couldn’t leave school to go behave like that, I had to finish school.”
