This attacker waited for Quamari to appear after school had finished before chasing him and stabbing him with such ferocity, he pierced Quamari’s rib and punctured his lung. This act of violence from one 15 year old to another is sickening and sad.
Grantie penned this song in frustration at this senseless loss of innocent life, a young precious life, that’s why the song is call ‘Another Life’. This is not a pretty song neither has it been dressed up for your listening pleasure, it’s a fact-checking song, pointing directly at the perpetrators of such heinous crimes. Starrvybz worked alongside BACC (Building African Caribbean Communities), Positive Stepz, Office of the Police & Crime Commissioner in West Yorkshire in tackling our youth problem.
Grantie Asher last performed this song at the Conflict Resolution program at the first ever Youth Awareness Conference at Huddersfield University recently within the last two years with keynote speakers from around the UK. Starrvybz Entertainment are fully aware of a range of issues affecting our youths including gun and knife crime, gangs and postcode wars, cultural diversity and identity, respect and attitude issues, social and life skills, education and mentoring and most importantly, family bonding issues. Starrvybz aim to help through music to encourage the youths to embrace a positive mindset over a negative one and continue to promote love over violence amongst our youths.
