Shaggy and Hotly-Tipped New Rapper Bizerk Team Up with Producer Don Corleon on Celebratory New Single “Like To Party”

OK, it’s the middle of winter, but let’s pretend it’s July, it’s Friday, the sun is out and work is over – kick off your shoes and get ready for “Like To Party,” the celebratory new single from Reggae legend Shaggy and hotly tipped newcomer Bizerk (an Inner Circle/Circle House artist), produced by Don Corleon and slated for February 26 worldwide release from Don Corleon Records.

The beloved Shaggy has put out nearly two decades of Reggae hits, including the crossover mega-classics “It Wasn’t Me,” which hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, and “Boombastic,” from his Grammy-winning album of the same name. Miami-based newcomer Bizerk has already featured on tracks with Slightly Stoopid and others, and takes a grab at the big-time on the anthemic “Like To Party.”

Production on the track is handled by the estimable Donovan “Don Corleon” Bennett, the architect of songs for Sean Paul, Rihanna, Keisha Kole, Vybz Kartel, Protoje, Jah Cure, Pressure and many other leading Reggae artists.

The tag-team approach results in a head-nodding, sun-soaked single with a fresh yet classic feel – if you need some summer in the winter, “Like To Party” by Bizerk featuring Shaggy will be available worldwide February 26 from Don Corleon Records.

Vybz Kartel blasts police in new letter from jail

Vybz KartelHaving been incarcerated for nearly 17 months on murder and conspiracy charges, Adidja ‘Vybz Kartel’ Palmer has unleashed his fury on Jamaican police forces in a new letter from prison, alleging they have done everything imaginable to keep him behind bars.

The five-page handwritten letter, publicized via Kartel’s official Twitter page on Wednesday, outlines accusations by the embattled deejay that police have concocted lies, threats and evidence in order to smear his reputation prevent him from achieving bail.

Titled, This is Adidja Palmer stating the facts, the controversial entertainer holds nothing back.

“In 2011, I was charged for murder by way of a statement which indicated that I had ordered Lenburgh McDonald to murder Barrington ‘Bossie’ Burton. Weeks later, said witness gave a statement to the Public Defender saying that he was physically assaulted and threatened by the police to say that I was involved in ‘Bossie’ Burton’s death. Days later, he gave another statement to the Public Defender saying that since he recanted the first statement, he has been getting death threats via calls to his phone.”

“Days after my first murder charge, I was charged with another murder (Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams). In this case, the police (by way of a Senior Superintendent who was later charged with “attempting to pervert the course of justice” in a separate incident) campaigned every Monday morning on a certain TV station claiming they had DNA evidence, which came back 7 months later as negative. They also led the public to believe that they had video tape of me and my co-accused murdering Williams. I would like to add that the police made a lot of damaging remarks against me. A most notable one would be “since his arrest, the community is a safer place.”

Saturn ad

German electronics company, Saturn says sorry to Jamaicans for controversial ad

Saturn adSaturn Electronics Inc., the brainchild behind a controversial advertisement involving the burning of a Jamaican flag, has pulled its commercial in the wake of continued backlash from Jamaicans.

The German electronics company made the decision following a meeting with Germany’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs in an attempt to quell the heat received for their commercial. A statement issued by Saturn on Tuesday explained that their decision to pull it from their online channels was ‘out of respect for the feelings of the Jamaican people,’ and will not air the ad on German television as planned.

The letter, addressed to Jamaica’s Ambassador to Germany, Joy Wheeler said, in part, “We must nevertheless take note of the fact that the humorous approach we selected has led to some misunderstandings in Jamaica and among Jamaicans living in Germany. We sincerely regret this and would like to apologize if we have angered or offended anyone with our ad.”

Additionally, they insisted they, “at no time was it the company’s intention to offend the national sentiment of the Jamaican people,” and that it was meant ‘tongue-in-cheek.’

The Government of Jamaica later issued a response, saying they accepted Saturn’s apology and are pleased that the ad will not air on TV.

Saturn caught the ire Jamaicans worldwide after an ad which debuted last week in which two young, white men accidentally set the flag on fire after a coffee maker went faulty. One of the men then went outside with the flag, stomping all over it until the blaze went out; sparking a number of enraged civilians to hold Jamaican flags protesting its desecration.

The video, which has been viewed over 700,000 times on various YouTube channels, received several more dislikes than likes as Jamaicans demanded an apology from Saturn, saying it was disrespectful to burn the flag. Other Jamaicans, however, lauded the commercial’s concept, saying it was another win for Brand Jamaica on the heels of the popular Volkswagen ad, which officially premiered during this year’s Superbowl.

New petition urges fair trial for Kartel

3165f54a302a128e148cdf239292ed99Nearly 17 months into his incarceration, well-renowned Dancehall singer, Vybz Kartel is receiving a push on his behalf for a fair trial as fans are circulating a petition to secure the deejay’s release from prison.

Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer has bounced between lock-ups in Kingston and Spanish Town since his September 2011 arrest as he is awaiting his day in court on murder and conspiracy charges. Despite securing bail in two of his three court cases, Kartel remains in prison as he has yet to be offered bail in the Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams murder case. As a result, the self-professed ‘Worl Boss’ will languish in the Horizon Remand Centre until May 27 when the matter will once again be mentioned.

However, Michael Dawson, the co-author of Kartel’s book, Voice of the Jamaican Ghetto has started a petition asking that Kartel be allowed temporary freedom and the chance to earn a decent living until his trial begins.

Ragashanti

Ragashanti leave Link Up Radio following dispute with manager

RagashantiControversial Jamaican talk show host,Kingsley ‘Ragashanti’ Stewart is off the airwaves again following a nasty row with the manager of his latest radio program.

Last year, Ragashanti moved to Link Up Radio 93.5 FM shortly after announcing the suspension his Tambareen Radio outlet for revamping. However, his stint with New York-based radio station was short-lived after a fallout with David ‘Squeeze’ Annakie, Link Up’s head man earlier this month after accusing him of trying to exploit his image in an unsavoury light.

Ragashanti explained his situation in a detailed statement on his personalized website, Ragashanti.com.

“After numerous attempts to control and exploit me to make money, I made it known at all times that I am primarily a broadcaster and that I do not want my image or likeness to be exploited in ways I don’t see fit. I also made it known that I don’t need anyone to ‘manage’ or to channel me in arenas I consider unethical,” he said.

“I also did not want to be so obsessively focused on money that I would be callously exploiting my fellow Jamaicans and other Caribbean nationals. This wasn’t received well by those who told me I could be the ‘biggest moneymaking machine’ for their company. This then led to multiple and unending manipulations for me to change my mind. They were unsuccessful. Then the pettiness increased in a manner aimed at trying to ‘draw me out’ to do something rash so that they could sue me and demolish me. Again, they were not successful. It was under this climate that I thought it best to resign.”

The esteemed media personality also chastised Mr. Annakie for trying to copyright his name, meaning, saying his ex-manager would have received all profits associated with the Ragashantibrand and any events or shows associated with said brand.

A screenshot of a post by Mr. Annakie on his Facebook page added more fuel to the fire asRagashanti claims he admitted to trying to copyright the name in a comment to a fan of the show.

“Yes, it is standard to protect all brands associated with a company to avoid legal issues. It is of no significance anymore because the relationship has ended and he has been released,” said the post.

Ragashanti is no stranger to change. In September 2010, he resigned from News Talk 93 FMafter a number of years on the network, hosting his popular Ragashanti Live program. Following a move to Nationwide Radio later that month, he was on the move again in March 2011 after theBroadcasting Commission ordered him off air, citing several violations. Ragashanti had long been questioned for the sexual nature of his program, which aired weekdays in the early afternoons during his short stint at the radio station.

He then started Tambareen Radio, which featured a variety of shows, including the popular late night program, Outa Orda.

Saturn Jamaica ad

Controversial Saturn ad causes uproar amongst Jamaicans

Saturn Jamaica adWeeks after Jamaica was on a high following the release of a hotly-debated Volkswagencommercial, a different advertisement by a German entity has fired up Jamaica, literally and figuratively.

Saturn Electronics posted an advertisement on Wednesday which featured the Jamaican flag as well as the background vocals of Murderer, the classic song by Reggae/Dancehall legend, Barrington Levy. At first, two young white men making coffee while listening to music, they accidentally trigger a fire which catches the flag.

In an attempt to stop the fire from spreading throughout the store, one of the men take the burning flag outside and stamp all over it. These actions are captured on a news satellite, feeding pictures of a demonstration sparked near the store in which protesters hold up Jamaican flags while shouting ‘We Love Jamaica.’ In the end, a Jamaican flag is hurled down a high-rise building while the two young men appear stunned by the commotion which surrounds them.

A description under Saturn’s video says, “The new Saturn commercial shows a striking coffee is the trigger for a chain of chaotic circumstances.”

“Director, Martin Werner provides with its action-packed short film of just a little more than a minute, excitingentertainment and shows the crucial role to play proper technique and it offers cinematic scenes and moves simultaneously in a humorous way the technology competence Saturn into focus.”
