Dalton Harris Respond To Critics: When I was a nobody, no one cared

Dalton Harris first visit to Jamaica since winning the X Factor have critics talking and he responded

Harris rose to International fame when he entered the fifteenth UK series of The X Factor began on ITV on Saturday 1 September 2018. He was one of the sixteen finalists. On December 2, Harris was announced as the winner of the 2018 edition, becoming the first foreign act to win the UK version of The X Factor.

Since his fame on the X Factor, there are many stories in the media of the conflict between him and his mother. Dalton's mother gave interviews to the media about the continued conflict between them. Dalton, on the other hand, had been steadfast with his resentment towards her and his visit to Jamaica has reignite the situation.

The conflict with Harris and his mother is due to the fact he was left to fend for himself from a young age. According to reports, he lived in conditions that were not suited for a human being. He was alone in the world or growing up with strangers. This caused the resentment towards his mother.

"He came to see us last week Saturday (two Saturdays ago). It was really joyful to see him again," Rowena Lewinson told Loop News reporter Claude Mills.

She is Dalton's 'life mother', not his biological mom, but it was her tender care and attention that set him on the path to his present success, including nurturing his talents when he entered the Digicel Rising Stars context.

She told Loop News  "After he won the (X Factor) contest, he had called us to say that he would be visiting this summer, but he came to see us a bit early instead. It was great because everybody had been asking how come he hasn't come to look for us yet. He was doing a documentary about his musical life, and we did an interview with the directors who came with him, about our role in starting him on his journey, and how he got in touch with me and my mother (now deceased)," she said. "Everybody down pon me, down pon me, that Dalton must take care of his mother. But I keep telling them that what he wants to do with his mom is his business.

This conversation continued in the media, social media and on the streets of Jamaica and Dalton decided to respond.

He wrote in capital letters, most likely he was angry, frustrated and wanted to let of steam.

He writes:

WHEN I WAS NOBODY AND WAS LIVING WITH STRANGERS. NOONE USED TO CALL TO ASK IF I WAS ALIVE OR IF I HAD EATEN BUT NOW IT STRESSES YOU OUT THAT I STAY AWAY FROM YOU AND THE TRAUMA? SEEMS A BIT OPPORTUNISTIC. IF I WAS BROKE AND STILL NOTHING LIKE YOU TREATED ME WOULD I STILL BE SUCH AN IMPORTANT THING. THIS RIGHT HERE IS WHY I STAY AWAY BECAUSE IT’S ALWAYS SOMETHING NEGATIVE. YOU DON’T GET TO PLAY WITH PEOPLE’S HEARTS AND MINDS. REGARDLESS OF YOUR TITLE. I AM HUMAN JUST LIKE YOU AND JUST LIKE YOU MY LIFE IS NOT OWED. I HAVE A TITLE TOO I AM A SON AND I COULD HAVE DEMANDED PROTECTION AND LOVE AND CARE AND ACCEPTANCE FROM YOU BUT I DIDN’T. EVEN THOUGH NONE OF THOSE THINGS WERE EVER SHOWED. SO I DON’T HATE YOU. I JUST DON’T WANT TO BE AROUND YOU. EVERY TIME THINGS LIKE THIS PROVE TO ME WHY I NEED TO STAY AWAY. AND I COULD GIVE A FUCK WHO WANTS TO JUDGE. GO JUDGE YOUR FUCKING LIFE BEFORE YOU JUDGE MINE CAUSE I DID THIS SHIT BY MYSELF SO YOU DON’T GET TO COME AND REAP REWARDS. NAAH. I FORGAVE THAT SHIT AND MOVED ON AND FAR AWAY. WHAT ELSE DO YOU WANT. CAUSE I HAVE NOTHING ELSE TO GIVE BUT MYSELF THE PEACE OF MIND I DESERVE AND YOU ARE FUCKING WITH THAT.

ONLY WAY TO RESPECT YOU AND BE HAPPENS STAYING AWAY. NOW YOU ALL CAN TAKE THIS AND FUCKING RUN WITH IT. CAUSE THATS ALL YOU DO SIT THERE AND FUCKING JUDGE PEOPLE.

I AM NOT HURTING BUT I WAS HURT AND WILL NEVER ALLOW THAT TO HAPPEN AGAIN. AND I AM BEING NICE ABOUT THIS. NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD SEE THE DAY WHERE ME NOT BEING AROUND IS BAD WHEN ALL I WAS TOLD IS HOW MUCH YOU HATED AND DIDN’T WANT ME. YOU CANNOT DESTROY ME BECAUSE I AM SELF MADE. BEFORE YOU COMMENT ON THIS POST THINK ABOUT YOUR LIFE AND THOSE AROUND YOU AND WHO GIVES YOU THE RIGHT TO TELL ME WHAT TO DO AND FEEL.

ARE YOU FUCKING CRAZY. I HAVE ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION BECAUSE OF THIS SHIT. SO JUDGE ALL YOU FUCKING WANT MY HAPPINESS IS ALL THAT MATTERS. RIGHT NOW. THEN UNIVERSE HAD A PLAN FOR ME AND THATS WHY I AM ALIVE. NOT BECAUSE OF ANY OF YOU.

MONEY IS A HELL OF A THING. INE FUCKING HELL OF A THING. I WORKED FROM THE GROUND UP BY MYSELF. HUNGRY AND SAD. ALONE AND BROKEN. NOW YOU THINK YOU CAN TELL ME ANYTHING. FUCK NO.

SO I DO NOT HATE YOU BUT I WILL NOT STAY AROUND ANYONE THAT MEANS ME NO GOOD AND I DEFINITELY WONT FINANCE ANYONE.

I AM ONLY FUCKING HUMAN. ALL I DO IS WORK HARD AND ACHIVE WHAT I WANT. FROM FOOD TO SCHOOL TO MY CAREER. ALL BY MY FUCKING SELF.

I AM SO SORRY BUT YOU PEOPLE ARE FUCKING BULLIES AND I WILL NOT LET YOU DO THAT TO ME ANYMORE. SO SAY AND DO WHATEVER YOU WANT. CANT GET ANY WORSE.

I AM NOT HERE BY CHANCE. JUST HARD WORK AND I WILL BE FINE. I TAUGHT MYSELF VALUE AND MORALS AND LOVE AND LIFE.

I HAVE THE SAME FRIENDS AND SAME PEOPLE AROUND ME THAT LIVED ME AND SAVED MY LIFE I DIDN’T CUT THEM OFF OR DISRESPECT THEM. WHY IS IT ONLY YOU.

Crab-n-a-Barrel. Where was the Jamaican Media when Dalton was hurting?

Congratulations to Dalton Harris. Winner of the UK Factor 2018

December 2nd 2018 Dalton Harris become the winner of the UK X Factor.

Former Rising Stars Winner to X Factor Winner

Dalton Harris rose to fame after winning the Digicel Rising Stars title with a prize of $1 million in 2010 . He was 16 years old at the time. Shortly after winning the title, Harris suffered a string of misfortunes. The 16 years old young artist out-spent the $1 million prize. He dropped out of Edwin Allen High School at the 10th grade. He lived alone in an accommodation with no running water and no electricity. He was left to fend for himself in living conditions that were not suited for a human being. He was alone in the world.

Harris' situation changed in 2011 when he met music promoter and producer Donovan Germain, the chief executive officer of  Penthouse Records. At 19, he got into Kingston College and graduated with six Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) subjects, which allowed him to enroll in the school's sixth form programme. The music producer took Harris under his wings.  Harris credited Donovan Germain with 'saving' his life and described him as father, mentor and role model.

Despite going back to school and traveling the world it seem as if his past troubles and trauma was still a present factor in his life. On November 19,2017 Harris posted a dire message on his Facebook Page. He spoke of having suicidal thoughts and not wanting to live.

 

There was little to no support from the Jamaican Media even though it was clear Dalton was crying out for help.

Since Dalton's success on the UK TV Show X Factor, a photo of him playfully sitting in the lap of another contestant surfaced on Social Media. He was labelled a homosexual by many in Jamaica and the media seem to constantly each day decided to tear him down. Every day there would be another story of Dalton's mother crying. The media seem to seek out the woman who obviously does not have a good relationship with her son and used her to tear him down while he sings for his life in the UK.

There is also a reported threat by a popular social media person who said if he sees Dalton he would open his face with a knife. After the constant negative stories in the Jamaican Media, Dalton decided to address the situation.

There was no concern for the Dalton's safety for mental health from the Jamaican Media. The negative headlines and stories seem as if it was movement to end Dalton's career and end his life.

Despite the negative headlines and stories Dalton Harris has prevailed and has taken home the title of UK X Factor Winner 2018
