Ryno leaves 'Empire' - Kartel loses third member

Ryno leaves ‘Empire’ – Kartel loses third member


It’s now official that deejay Blak Ryno, one of the Portmore Empire’s top guns, has officially left the Gaza.

Earlier this week rumours had begun circulating once again that Ryno had officially left the Empire. The deejay, however, contacted THE STAR to confirm that as of yesterday, he is no longer in the Vybz Kartel-led Portmore Empire.

Born Romaine Anderson, Ryno has been a member of the Portmore Empire since January 2007, where he was officially signed to Kartel’s Adidjaheim Records and made his name with songs such as Thugs Anthem,Bend Over among others.

Months prior to this, rumours had been circulating in the streets and on the Internet that relations between the young deejay and his Gaza camp had not been good, with speculations that he, among other members have been beaten on a regular basis. Ryno has however, denied to THE STAR all rumours of being beaten or having witnessed any beatings on the Gaza.

unwilling to say much

Speaking briefly to THE STAR, Ryno was unwilling to say much on the matter yesterday, only admitting that relations between himself and the Empire were still good.

Ryno is the third deejay to have departed the Empire recently, the first being late last year when Lisa Hyper was expelled from the organisation after the Empire ‘unanimously agreed’ to end their professional relationship with the female deejay. This development came shortly after a compromising picture was leaked on the Internet of Hyper.

In January, a newcomer to the Portmore Empire, Gaza Kim willingly left the Empire after an incident which took place in the ‘Big Yard’ community off Mannings Hill Road. Gaza Kim, who now goes by the name Kym, was severely beaten on the Gaza by what sources say was orders from Kartel. However, Kartel denied the claims.

This week rumours also began circulating once more that singer Jah Vinci had also left the Empire as well, when contacted on Tuesday, however, Jah Vinci responded, “Gaza fi life.”

STAR of the month Demarco brought a bit of his high energy

and jovial personality to the offices of THE STAR last Tuesday for the phone chat.

While the online chat was scheduled for last Tuesday as well, due to technical difficulties the chat has been postponed. Action on the phone lines may have been a bit slow, but Demarco was having fun making jokes and keeping persons nearby entertained. For the fans that did get to speak with the artiste, they expressed their admiration of the producer/musician/artiste.

He said, “the phone chat was good you know, cause people acknowledged me and my talent. People called and said mi talented and dem neva know mi coulda do so many things until dem did read it in di STAR and dem gimme me props.”

The singjay also told fans to expect a number of things from him in the future, including a new rhythm, singles and his album.

ST GEORGE’S, Grenada – The Grenada government has refused a work permit to Jamaican dancehall artiste Clifford Smith, popularly known as Mr Vegas, who was scheduled to perform here on Saturday.

Denied a Grenada work permit, Mr Vegas cries politics

ST GEORGE’S, Grenada – The Grenada government has refused a work permit to Jamaican dancehall artiste Clifford Smith, popularly known as Mr Vegas, who was scheduled to perform here on Saturday.

“This is political, it’s a political move by this government,” said Smith, who performed in Grenada at a rally of the then ruling New National Party in 2008.

“I risk my life to perform in an event, I did not even know it was a political event, and now this is how I am being thanked,” he said on a live radio broadcast today.

Promoter Steve Duncan said that no specific reasons had been given by the Ministry of Labour for refusing the work permit.

Duncan, who claimed to have invested more than EC$30,000 (US$11,110) in marketing the show, is questioning the move to ban the artiste and wants the government to say if it has a list containing the names of persons who should not perform in Grenada.

“If this government is placing a ban on a particular number of Caribbean artistes, then that should be public knowledge and should be brought to the attention of the promoters when the application for the work permit is made.”

Grenada’s labour laws do not require the Labour Minister to provide a reason for denying an artiste a work permit.

This is the second Jamaican artiste to be banned from performing here by the 19-month old Tillman Thomas administration. Last April, the government refused a work permit for artiste known as Vybz Kartel.

Meanwhile, a Roman Catholic priest is praising the government for its decision.

“I believe it has more to do with decency and the values we promote as the church as to crown it off we are presently in the middle of the Lenten season,” said Father Sean Doggett.

Last week, the Conference of Churches along with the Alliance of Evangelical churches issued a statement calling on media houses and promoters of live shows to exercise restraint during the 40-day Lenten period.

“We are asking them to avoid all forms of rudeness, vulgarity and obscenity as well as anything that militates against Christian morality,” the statement said.
