Mystic aims to create more magic in 2012

Prominent Jamaican dancer and emerging artiste, Mystic Davis hopes to continue her magical run within the local and international entertainment scene.

The daughter of veteran Reggae star, Joy White, Mystic has established her own legacy as an all-rounded performance artiste. She’s already starred in several music videos for internationally-acclaimed artistes such as Gnarls Barkley (Going On), Miike Snow (The Rabbit), Sean Kingston & Nicki Minaj (Dutty Love) as well as Vybz Kartel (Go Go Wine) to name a few.. Additionally, she’s performed during on stage performances from international figures such as hip-hop superstar, Ludacris, Ruff Ryders first lady, Eve and even taught World Record holding/Olympic Gold medal winning sprinter, Usain Bolt a few dance moves.

In addition to her music video resume, the Portland native stamped her authority as a deejay in 2010; starring alongside prominent veteran deejay, Macka Diamond as well as top-draw disc jock, ZJ Sparks, amongst othersfor the female empowerment anthem, Too Much Bull. However, it was when Mystic joined forces with Dancehall singjay, Leftside for the pulsating remix of their chart-topping collaborative single, Want Yuh Body.

The remix made her a reputable force as an artiste; showing lyrical dexterity that few young artistes consistently display.

Already in 2012, Mystic featured on the third edition of the highly regarded Shaggy and Friends charity event and won her third consecutive Youth View award for Best Female Dancer earlier this month; adding to previous accolades, including the HYPETV Award for Best Female Dancer. Currently, she’s nominated in the Female Dancer of the Year category for the 3rd annual Carivibez Video Web Awards.

Additionally, flexibility and visibility showcased on a regular basis through her dancing exploits, plus sultry looks to match copped Mystic a top 10 spot on a recent list of the Jamaican Music Industry’s Sexiest Female Personalities, co-compiled by DancehallUSA.com and Examiner.com. The popular entertainer also continues to build her name overseas as she recently travelled to South America.

Musically, Mystic is now a part of legendary, Grammy-winning producer, Tony ‘CD’ Kelly’s K-Licious record label, which features fellow emerging artistes such as Dre Zee and Malica Martin. Kelly’s upcoming production, the 1st Quarters Riddim, will feature work from Mystic also.

She accredits much of her mainstream success as a musician, in part, to Germaine ‘Mafia McKoy’ Clarke, more popularly known as Blaqk Sheep, who was thefirst producer to instill his faith in her and voice her. Clarke produced Too Much Bull as well as her first solo single, Wine Up in 2011.

With such an accomplished resume’ in her early 20s, there’s certainly a natural Mystic glowing through the air with this breakthrough talent.

Kartel displeased with Popcaan over lack of contact since arrest

There may finally be some friction developing between the two biggest stars within the Portmore Empire following months of non-communication between them.

Breakthrough Dancehall star, Popcaan recently re-iterated during a radio that he has yet to contact his currently incarcerated mentor, Vybz Kartel since the Empire leader was arrested last September and subsequently slapped with murder, drug and obstruction of justice charges. Popcaan gave no reason for his inability to visit Kartel but has continued to pledge his loyalty to the ‘Worl’ Boss’ and the Portmore Empire.

Now, reports have emerged that Vybz Kartel isn’t impressed with Popcaan’s consistentno-shows to the Horizon Remand Centre, where the self-proclaimed “Dancehall Hero” currently calls home.

Bounty Killer staying strong since mother’s death, shares memories

Internationally acclaimed Dancehall superstar, Bounty Killer continues to deal with the emotional fallout following the death of his mother. However, the prominent deejay says that he’s getting through the pain.

The Dancehall world was shocked on Sunday morning when Bounty Killer announced, via Twitter that his mother, Ivy Williams, more affectionately known as Miss Ivy passed away on Sunday morning. Williams died in her sleep following an illness and had reportedly been battling cancer in recent times.

Since the announcement, a slew of Dancehall superstars, including long-time rival, Beenie Man, Dancehall diva, Spice amongst several other artistes have publicly shown support for Bounty Killer during this tragic time. The Alliance founder, speaking publicly for the first time since his mother’s passing, expressed his appreciation to friends and fans who have reached out to him in the last 72 hours.

“The love and support I’ve been receiving is immense. Globally people are showing they care, especially my fans on Twitter and Facebook and all the other networks.  I know people love me and my mom but it was so surprising to the amount,” Bounty Killer told the Jamaica Observer in a BlackBerry message.

Having mentioned his mother several times in his songs, including the classic clash song, Miss Ivy Last Son, Bounty Killer spoke fondly of his mother’s undying love and ability to descend calm on a turbulent situation.

“Every moment spent with her was memorable and amusing. Ask anybody that knows her she is the greatest mom and not just for me but for everyone that ever come in contact with her,” he said.

According to the prominent deejay, he will cherish of his late mother’s attributes, including her ability to teach and advise him and his siblings. However, there’s one memorable piece of advice that Bounty Killer received from his mother that he will forever hold dear to his heart.

To know that there is a God and there isn’t anything that faith cannot fix,” he recalls.

Williams left behind eight children as well as several grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was 71 years old.

REGGAE SUPERSTAR KY-MANI MARLEY TAKES COSTA RICA BY STORM

The 2012 installment of “Carnival Puntarenas,” the third of the three “major” festivals of the season in Puntarenas, Costa Rica, proved to be another spectacular affair for the more than 40,000 music lovers who converged for the beach side concert in the capital city to see Jamaican reggae star Ky-mani Marley set the day to music.


When the young Marley, son of reggae icon Bob Marley, hit the stage backed the band Konfrontation, excitement and pandemonium broke out in anticipation of the tasty musical treat that was to follow. Marley blazed the stage for well over 120 minutes, delivering a dynamic litany of songs, from his father’s repertoire as well as some from his own catalogue. The multi talented singer proved his relevance with favourites like ‘Iron Lion Zion,’ ‘Is This Love,’ ‘One Love,’ ‘Get up Stand Up,’ ‘No Woman No Cry,’ ‘I Shot the Sheriff’ and originals like ‘Who We Are,’ ‘Rasta Love,’ ‘Ska-Ba-Dar’ and ‘Dear Dad’ – a song that pulls at the heartstrings of anybody who has lost a loved one. 


Ky-mani’s humble yet high-energy style of delivery demonstrated that it was really about the music and exceeding fans’ expectations. He was inundated with requests for autographs and how he managed to sign them while performing is baffling. Pocketbooks and shirts were only a few of the articles patrons threw on stage for signatures.    


Two encore performances later, the band was all set for shutdown, Ky-mani however obliged fans with a third and final encore performance. When he segued into the reggae anthem “One Love” the sea of patrons, obviously beguiled, appeared to be in a musical trance. 


“The picturesque view of thousands singing all the songs word for word, knowing they neither spoke nor understood English demonstrates one thing, that the universal language spoken today is the language of love” Ms. Lexy Brooks of VIP Connected Entertainment said moments after Ky-mani left the stage.


Marley, who is working on a new album, from which a single will be released this summer, is also making time for his latest project “Love Over All Foundation” (L.O.A.F.) an organization he is spearheading to assist his Alma Mata, Falmouth All Age School, along with a number of schools in Jamaica


“I am trying to assist kids in Jamaica who, though obviously eager to learn, don’t have many of the basic tools such as lunch money, school supplies, computers and desks. I have donated some of these items but would love to put a program in place where the efforts are ongoing” he said.


Ky-mani personifies the name “Marley” by continuing to maintain the highest professional standards through music and the love of his fellow man, something Bob would undoubtedly be proud of. The Marley legacy clearly, continues through his children.

MC Dementor questions and anwsers

MC Dementor questions and anwsers

1. How MC Dementor joined African markets.

Ok. I did a song called King Kong uploaded it on youtube,
and by a surprise a day i wake up
and my FB account was with lots of friend request of people of Sudan a country in north Africa
They are my first fan base. After that i made a song with a sudan rapper called Hoodie Zilla the
response was amazing and the song began to made new fans on west Africa: Nigeria, Ghana and Gambia
I begin to love them and i found so many talent there and i see that work with upcoming African
artist is a good bussiness they dont have to envy nothing to any USA or UK artist.

2. Why the stadistics of your videos are bassically mostly Sudan, Ghana ,Nigeria, UK and a part of USA
what is happening with your homeland Colombia and the latin markets if you are a spanish rapper?

I love Colombia, is an amazing country you will not believe all the things you can do here with beatiful womans,
beatiful wealth. But in the music bussines here the rap or hip hop is not a strong market,
some rappers have been on Latin MTV and other
stuff but nothing have happened to them they still local and maybe they will die local. Here they love other music like
reggaeton, salsa and other local and ethnic rythms i honestly love the american rap and feel the whole black culture and music
, Africa have given to me a lot with the support of his people and his talented artist sometimes you see a rapper from a village
or a small town in Africa with the same level of Jay Z or Kanye West.

3. We have seen that some USA stars like DJ Khaled and Ceo Miami Mike have done promo for u,
like a spanish rapper that is very hard, how you
contact them or they contact you?

We work with a label called Jump Street Records our goal is bassically support all the talent all over Africa.
They made the hooks with those stars and i personally thank the Good work of some African artist like Decordha the maskman,
sudanese rapper Ace da kiid and Hoodie Zilla that made those small dreams come true..
And also this is a big opportonutie that Jump Street records give to the African artist to blast his talent.

4. What are your future plans and if you are targeting Africa you need to visit Africa, tell us your plans?

Ok.In about one or two months i will visit west Africa (not sure if Ghana or nigeria)
for record my next video clip with all the best formats, the idea
is promote it on the best music channels like MTV Base, MTV UK, BET TV , Soundcity Nigeria and Gh One and 4syte TV.
I want to made some shows there, meet my fans, touch them and visit the media houses.
Also i will love to visit Sudan and south sudan. There is so
much to do. In this moment im working on the song, the collab and the VISA and diplomatic stuffs

5. With all the relevance that so many African media do for you. How you describe yourself in this moment.

The key of the success, is stay humble, i dont see i have fans, i have friends that support me a lot somedays, i call them
or they call me, i love chat with them. The fake ego cloud is the worst thing than an artist can do. With the foots on the place
you can plan better your next move, invent new ideas and manage yourself in the best way. I know in this moment im not the best
but with my mind on a real status about me and my life i will made the respective corrections and make all my projects true.

6. What is your opinion about the African escene , what you think about the African artist, what are your favourite.

I come from a very humble home and a guetto in the north of Colombia. So i will put like my best african artist Dagrin becouse feel him
him a lot, but i like other african artist like wizkid, Dbanj, Dblack, Madfish, P Square, Bracket, 2Face.
The african escene is amazing in this moment im totally sure that is the industry i want to join with the USA and UK industry.
African artist are making big moves with big USA and UK artist.

7. Thanks to??

I thank a lot God for give me the grace and the opportunitie. Thanks a lot to the Naija Sub 20 player Terry Envoh, Thanks also
to the sudanese rappers Hoodie Zilla and Ace the kiid, thanks to all the Ghana and Nigeria FMs and media pages that have done promo for me.
Thanks to BEN TV for have my video on the jukebox charts. Thanks to Nigerian Vocal Slender i just saw his BBC documental total respect to him
Thanks to Decordha the maskman, Thanks to all the people of Nigeria , Sudan and Ghana they make me alive, they give me wisdom
total respect for them.

Could Peter Tosh become Jamaica’s next National Hero?

The daughter of an iconic Reggae superstar hopes that her father will become Jamaica’s eighth national hero. But it’s not the legendary artiste who you might be thinking of.

Niambe Tosh, the daughter of late, great Reggae singer, Peter Tosh thinks that her famous father should be branded a National Hero by the Jamaican Government. This hails as part of the Peter Tosh Estate’s campaign to garner full recognition for the Reggae singer’s many contributions to Jamaica’s music industry, amongst other works.

In an interview with IRIE FM on Tuesday, Niambe Tosh insists that her father deserves such acknowledgement from the local government.
