If there’s one artist that has always been a loyal friend to me, it’s this brat right here. Deva Bratt. Bascom X introduced me to Deva almost a decade ago, and I have to say this genuine, extremely talented artiste has been a friend ever since.
He always supports me and my events, and Deva will always have my support just the same.
I had a brief chat with Deva recently, and this is what he had to say.
Q. Deva mi fam…how are you?
A. Wha gwaan Mama Shilo? A one love. Bless up yuself, ‘ere dat!
