Zennesha Riley, more popularly known as Zenny, is a model, singer and business woman with dancehall vibes, gorgeous looks and astute business acumen.
Zenesha ‘Zenny’ Riley has pulled off a feat few people have the ability and persistence to do – succeed at the highest level in three demanding professions.
(1) Successful model that has graced catwalks in Jamaica, Europe & the United States. If you ever venture to Negril’s Hedonism II in Jamaica or any super clubs hotel and see their brochures and promotional materials, Zenny is the tall, beautiful, sexy, black model on the front covers.
(2) Production Management services for film company Nice Time Productions Ltd, winning countless awards for her world popular documentary “Why do Jamaican’s run so Fast”, huge excitement for the new Reggae documentary “Hit me with Music” and a rehabilitation through music documentary “Songs of Redemptions”.
(3) Zenny had earned rave reviews as a singer based on the success of the runaway Jamaican hit single ‘No Combo’, in 2009 which is a remake of the popular UB40 and Lorna Bennett vintage, ‘Breakfast in Bed’. “I was really pleased with the response of the public. the song has connected with people,” she says.
Born on December 16, 1984, Zenny grew up in St. Ann, Jamaica, Parish of Bob Marley, Marcus Garvey, Burning Spear, and Shaba Ranks. Always a lover of music, dance, sports, fashion, films and entertainment, she was raised in a rural environment called“ Farm Town” where patriotism, and an appreciation of authentic roots and culture were encouraged. The household supported the sharing of ideas and the interplay of different philosophies and ways of thinking. Zenny later travelled and lived overseas to learn different cultures and languages, spending time in Germany, Spain & the United States of America. Zenny’s music is inspired by her upbringing & her daily realities. “I basically write to contribute to the quality of peoples lives, my own and our reality. Music is someone’s story or an imaginary creation of what could be,” Zenny is now working with her own record label Zenny Muzik Records, Lee Milla Productions & Universal Music Publishing in Europe to hone her musical skills.
Her singing style varies between the gruff ‘rude gal’ “Rebel” when she is chatting/mc-ing, to whip cream-smooth vocals when singing soul, pop and Reggae tunes. An admitted multi-tasker, Multi personality, Zenny is equally comfortable in stilettos on the runway at an haute couture show in Paris or Milan, walking in the streets filming celebrity personalities for documentaries, as well as wearing Jeans and Pumas in a small studio in Kingston. “I am down to earth, Witty, humorous, rebel yet sophisticated. That’s a simple description. I have enjoyed being an international model, now I currently enjoy being in the studio recording/producing, performing on stage, or doing some production work,” she says with a Cunning smile.
Zenny’s eclectic musical influences come from her childhood, listening to the greats of the early 60s, 70s and 80s, a time span that hails the heyday of funk, soul, reggae, R & B and disco. Zenny also admires the work of modern stars such as Sade, Indie Arie, Toni Braxton, Erykah Badu, Mary J Blige, and Alicia Keys, along with giants such as Bob Marley, James Brown, Michael Jackson, Patti Labelle, Marcia Griffiths & Tanya Stephens, to name a few. As she settles down in her musical career, we can expect nothing less than greatness from this multi-talented artist.
