TWO YEARS IN THE MAKING, on the heels of international success ‘ABCD’, Sasi the Don returns with another hit. ‘Daddy Don’ hits airwaves just in time for Father’s Day as a reflection of the current paradigm of parenting in this pandemic.

Known to many, as the Reggae Ambassador of Asia, Sasi The Don was the first Reggae Artiste from Asia to be given that title by the International NGO for Reggae Music and Creators known as “Reggae Ambassadors Worldwide” in 2002.

This latest single, rich in Sasi’s trademark reggae styling, has evolved over the last 20 years. A culmination of his extensive work with international reggae artistes, and Daddy Don is the perfect marriage between Jamaica and Asia. Paying homage to this fusion of cultures, the song features Ibkinx and Gayathri Vadivel on vocals and was produced by Sasi The Don & D’Navigator.

Sasi The Don has sold more than 100,000 copies of his albums. He is the first Solo Malaysian Tamil artiste to break mainstream performing Original Tamil songs to non-Tamil audience.

In being wholly influenced by his seven-year-old daughter Shanaiya Lakshmi, her input shaped everything from the sentiment to the score of ‘Daddy Don’. In keeping with this, scenes of his daughter are depicted in the intimate music video, an embodiment of a love letter from father to child. The selections of visuals meld beautifully with the track to illustrate the vibrant and dynamic nature of the parent-child relationship.

“It’s a whole story-telling experience that could be shared with a lot of people around the world. This song means hard work, it is a lot about me being a dad because it’s a journey. This is my part of talking about daddies because I think they are unsung heroes,” said Sasi.

Music Authors Copyright Protection [MACP] recognised Sasi as Artiste with Most Played English Song in 2009 and Most Popular Solo Artiste for the Malaysian Indian Music Industry Awards in 2002. And has collaborated with prominent Malaysian artists including Amy Search, Zainal Abidin, Anita Sarawak, Apache Indian (International), Dr.Alban (International), Maxi Priest (International), Jaclyn Victor, Amy Mastura, Ning Baizura and Namewee.

The single ‘Daddy Don’ is recently released on June 19, 2020. And distributed by Sony Music Malaysia. For more information about Sasi The Don, click here.
