Today we remember the fifth anniversary of the Greatest reggae star ever to come out of Denmark and a personal friend Natajsa Saad (October 31, 1974 - June 24, 2007)
Natasja also known as Dou T and Little T was a Danish rapper and reggae singer whose who was loved in Jamaica and in her homeland of Denmark. She probably most famous for her vocals on a popular reggae fusion remix of "Calabria" which gained her worldwide fame and a number one spot on Billboard's Hot Dance Airplay chart six months after her death in a car accident.
I have had the had the privilege of working with and managing part of the musical career of Natasja in the years leading up to her death. Natasja unfortunately died in a motor vehicle accident on the Hellshire main road in St.Catherine,Jamaica on the way from a reggae show in Portmore. In the car was her best friend Karen Mukupa and 2 others all of whom survived the tragic accident.
Natasja desire to become a star in Jamaica was a driving part of her passion and coincidentally after her death the song catapulted her in Jamaica and worldwide to prominence She was already well loved and respected in the reggae community in Denmark and the Scandinavian countries but she told me to be recognized in Jamaica would be the true sign of reggae acceptance.
This is the massive dance song song that most people will know her for (although a dance track you cant miss the reggae influence....maaad)
