Kenneth Phillips, father of the late singjay J Capri, said he plans to release a tribute song dedicated to his daughter’s memory. The single, Hard to Say Goodbye , will be released on his newly formed label, J Capri Music Group (JCMG) in August. “I wrote the song in memory of my daughter, J Capri. It has an overall message that life is fragile, and one has to live life to the fullest. The lyrics are really touching because my daughter meant a lot to me, the disc jockeys dem say mi put mi heart into it and I went all out,” Phillips, who records under the moniker Murphy, told the Jamaica Observer .

“The JCMG label has already signed an artiste, Dahj, my nephew, who is J Capri‘s cousin. We will be releasing a number of singles soon. We will sign other artistes in the future, but for now, we are concentrating on Dahj; he is the one who also made the beat for Hard to Say Goodbye ,” Phillips said.
