Hector Roots Lewis Impresses With Cover of Adekunle Gold’s “Something Different”

Hector Lewis

Hector Lewis Roots gave a stellar acoustic performance of Adekunle Gold’s Something Different during his Sugarshack Sessions segment that premiered on the company’s YouTube channel on February 7th, 2022.

The jam session took place in Bonita Springs, Florida, and was part of a 6-song set which was well received by an intimate audience of music lovers. 

Lewis’ cover was a musical confirmation of his respect and admiration for popular Nigerian singer and songwriter, Adekunle Gold

Gold, a flag bearer of the Highlife movement, recently released his impressive fourth studio album Catch Me If You Can, inspiring fans and fellow colleagues in the global African diaspora music industry like Lewis. “As a Jamaican, Africa has always represented the richness and authenticity of our powerful culture that cannot be stopped, and in touring across the continent (with Chronixx and Zincfence Redemption), we’re always tuned in to what’s happening on the ground in the diaspora,” said the Ups And Downs singer. “I really admire Adekunle’s ability to push his music forward in this bold, unapologetic way. As African people, we are all connected throughout history, and doing this cover was an honour. Him a di Nigerian General,” praised Lewis.

Lewis, who sang vocals and played the bass during his Sugarshack Performance alongside guitarist Rasheed McCallum, also featured a heart-warming rendition of Just When I Needed You Most sung by the Jamaican multihyphenate’s late mother, the great Reggae Songbird Barbara Jones. Following the positive reception of his debut single “Ups And Downs”, Lewis is looking forward to the release of his next single and subsequent EP project under Soul Circle Music in the first half of 2022.
