Something new and invigorating seemed to be in the air, determined to make its mark on its own terms. The excitement is growing steadily, receiving fantastic compliments from well-known musicians and music lovers from Ghana to Nigeria. Presenting the artiste simply known as MIGHTY DOW, who is ready to make a name for himself with his unique Soca/Calypso sound on the rising African soundscape. He hails from a Caribbean Island of St. Martin/St. Maarten

When Mighty Dow and Righteousman, the dominant reggae artiste from Nigeria, met at a concert in Ghana sometime in October 2023, fate intervened. Righteousman extended an invitation to Dow to visit Nigeria right away. Inspired by the thriving music scenes in Ghana and Nigeria, Mighty Dow went back and recorded his song "Come on Everybody," which is his current single. The song was recorded in St. Maarten, Ghana, Nigeria, and was filmed on location in Lagos, and directed by Righteousman.

Born on the lovely Caribbean island of St. Martins, Christened Isidore York, also known as Mighty Dow, got his start as a young steel pan prodigy, entertaining guests at parties and hotels with his father's steel band, the Potts Steelers. His breakout hit "St. Martin Rhumba," a Soca/Calypso tune that topped the charts in multiple Latin American nations, helped him gain international recognition in 1986. He has created a number of songs with collaborations by well-known performers, including Beenie Man of the island Jamaica. 

Numerous honors have been bestowed upon him, such as in the field of humanity on his home Caribbean island and as a Hall of Famer of the International Raggae and World Music Awards, where he was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2011. Mighty Dow, the magician behind the steel, says that visiting Africa is a privilege and a dream come true that goes beyond music since he wants to return to the continent of his ancestors. 

On March 11, 2024, the new video "Come on Everybody" will make its debut on YouTube and other streaming digital platforms.
