Jamaican reggae/dancehall artist Sean Paul will not be performing at Rotorua's Raggamuffin festival this weekend.

With less than a week before Raggamuffin 2011 opens at the Rotorua International Stadium, concert promoters have announced that Paul will no longer be part of the line-up.

Reggae star pulls out of Raggamuffin festival

Jamaican reggae/dancehall artist Sean Paul will not be performing at Rotorua’s Raggamuffin festival this weekend.

With less than a week before Raggamuffin 2011 opens at the Rotorua International Stadium, concert promoters have announced that Paul will no longer be part of the line-up.

Paul will not be replaced, but the remaining major acts will play extended sets.

The line-up now features international artists Mary J Blige, Jimmy Cliff, Maxi Priest, The Original Wailers and Ky-Mani Marley. Kiwi musicians include Che Fu and the Krates, Nesian Mystik, Sons of Zion and 1814. Che Fu and the Krates replaced Salmonella Dub who were part of the original line-up.

Paul was one of the international artists in the line-up for Raggamuffin 2011.

However, he didn’t perform at the Australian Raggamuffin festivals in Perth, Sydney, Melbourne last week but promoters told The Daily Post on Thursday he would still be performing in Rotorua. They have since announced he wouldn’t be part of the festival.

Promoter Andrew McManus said it was with great regret that he announced Paul would not be performing in Rotorua.

“We are as much disappointed as I know his fans will be,” Mr McManus said.

It has been reported that Paul tweeted on his Twitter page after missing the Australian concerts “This msg is 4 all my Australia peeps!!! I’m extremely upset that I couldn’t make it 2 raggamuffin.I am sorry”.

“4 reasons beyond my control I couldn’t make it. Truss mi if thing were diff. AUSI AUSI AUSI RRR”.

Mr McManus said even though Paul wouldn’t be part of Raggamuffin 2011, the line-up would still be impressive.

“However, we know that Raggamuffin fans will not be disappointed in the event. It remains a huge line-up.”

The 10-hour music festival is expected to attract a crowd of 30,000 people and promoters are expecting it to be the best Raggamuffin to date.

Tickets are available through Ticketmaster.

Duane’s introduction to The Wailers was through their work with the United Nations World Food Program (WFP). He was invited to write a song “A Step for Mankind” to support the WFP.  Duane is currently working on a new song, of which the proceeds will benefit the WFP’s largest global operation in Sudan.

In October 2010, Duane was invited by the WFP to honor of Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, at the The George McGovern Leadership Award Ceremony as part of his work to spread the message of the need for more action in addressing the issue of world hunger.

As for the scope of his contribution as a reggae artist and humanitarian, he explains:“What I am doing is part of a larger mandate.  The more you can do to make the world a better place for everybody, it is really a pleasure to do the little bit that I am actually doing, the feeling is great.  It is something worthwhile as there are not many of these opportunities left.”

Don’t miss Duane Stephenson while he is on tour throughout February and 2011!

KAHLIL RECORDS FOR HIP HOP PRODUCER J VIBE

KAHLIL RECORDS FOR HIP HOP PRODUCER J VIBE

Get the Flash Player to see the wordTube Media Player.
Now returning to the local scene for the first time since exiting the finals of the Digicel Rising Stars competition in 2008, male Reggae / R&B group Kahlil recently went in search of their first single and came back with a hit record for Grammy Nominated Hip Hop producer Jason “J Vibe” Farmer.

The single “Your Gonna Be Sorry” is an original track written by Zemroy Lewis and performed by group members Delly, Wayne, Blain and Que who all came together to deliver beautiful harmonies on the seductive crossover version which is sure to find favor with the ladies especially with Valentine’s Day right around the corner.

An official video for “Your Gonna Be Sorry” was also shot in Miami and LA by famed Jamaican actor Paul Campbell and is due out later this week. Campbell who stared in Third World Cop and co-stared in Shottas alongside Spragga Benz and Kymani Marley also makes a major cameo in the video which can best be described as a drama packed short film.

Currently managed by Garnett Newman, Kahlil spent the last months in 2010 on tour in the U.S with international comedian and TV personality Cedric The Entertainer and is now back in the island to promote and build a strong fan base throughout the Caribbean with Jamaica being the first point of contact.

Buju Banton, will on February 14 Valentine’s Day,again battle for his freedom in a federal court

JAMAICAN reggae artiste Mark Myrie, better known by his stage name Buju Banton, will on February 14 — Valentine’s Day — begin another battle for his freedom in a federal court in the United States where he will be retried on drug and gun-related charges.

The date was set yesterday by Judge James Moody for the highly anticipated second trial in the Sam M Gibbons Federal Court in Tampa, Florida. “February 14 is Valentine’s Day. We hope the jury gives us some love,” said the entertainer’s attorney David Markus, who expressed hope that his client would be acquitted. Added Markus: “Buju is optimistic and hopeful. He is in good spirits. He is a rock. No one realises how hard it is to fight the federal government in one trial, let alone two.”

Banton was last tried in September on charges of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine, and aiding and abetting the possession of a firearm during a drug-trafficking offence. However, the 12-member panel of jurors was unable to reach a verdict following three days of deliberations. That trial lasted a little over a week. The second trial is scheduled to last as long.

The trial was supposed to start last December but was postponed so Banton, who is on US$250,000 bail and is subjected to house arrest, could spend time with his family.

It is not yet known if Banton will be tried on the previous charges or the additional charges tacked on by the prosecution in a new indictment. The new indictment is being challenged by the entertainer’s legal team, and both the prosecution and defence are awaiting a ruling on the matter.

Should the new indictment stand, Banton will be tried for conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute cocaine, attempted possession with the intent to distribute cocaine, possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug-trafficking offence, and using the wires to facilitate a drug-trafficking offence.

If convicted, Banton faces up to 20 years’ imprisonment. The United States Government would also seek to seize the artiste’s assets.
Banton was arrested in December of 2009 following the arrests of two other men, Ian Thomas and James Mack, who subsequently pleaded guilty. The gun was actually in the car that Mack drove.
