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.

Ragashanti to suspend Tambareen Radio

Highly regarded Jamaican radio talk show host, Dr. Kingsley Stewart, more popularly known as Ragashanti, will be suspending his popular Tambareen Radio outlet until further notice.

The online radio station, which was officially launched by Ragashanti last year, as well as its host website, mixupyaad.com will cease broadcasting and publishing effective June 14 as the controversial personality will be completely revamping both brands. Ragashanti announced the move on Sunday via Mix Up Yaad as well as his official Facebook page, explaining his reasoning behind this decision.

“I regret to inform you all that Mix Up Yaad (mixupyaad.com) and Tambareen Radio will suspend publishing and broadcasting Thursday, June 14, 2012. This is in order to initiate a total reconceptualization and revamping of both the site and the station. There is not yet a date on which the web site and the station will restart. I sincerely thank you for your support over the time you were affiliated with us. I also regret any inconvenience this necessary move may cause,” he said.

Jamaican society can be divided along class, language and culture lines. It’s rich vs. poor, English vs. Patois and uptown vs. downtown.

Correspondent Lisa Biagiotti, producer Micah Fink and director of photography Gabrielle Weiss examine the public debate that erupted earlier this year when graphic Dancehall music lyrics and images were banned from Jamaica’s airwaves. The public responses reveal the legacy of two Jamaicas dating back to the country’s slave history.
