Shaggy considers all-Jamaican lineup for next charity concert

Following what many regard as the best Shaggy and Friends to date, the charity event’s creator believes that he should return to his roots for the next show.

The event’s organizer and international Reggae artiste,Orville Burrell, more popularly known as Shaggy, claims that he might have an all Jamaican lineup at the next Shaggy and Friends event, which could take place later this year. The Grammy-winning entertainer made this announcement earlier this week at an event announcing that the most recent edition of Shaggy and Friends netted JA$32 million; proceeds which fund the Bustamante Hospital for Children.

According to Shaggy, this movewill pay homage to Jamaica celebrating its 50th year of Independence this year.

“This is not engraved in stone. We all have to sit and think about it, but personally I see this as being good for the artistes, the country and our culture. A fitting way to celebrate Jamaica 50,” he said.

Veteran Jamaican producer, Winston Riley dies

Prominent Reggae producer, Winston Riley, renowned for developing the careers of Buju Banton and Cutty Ranks has died.

Riley, the father of FAME FM disc jock, Kurt Riley succumbed to serious head injuries sustained from a shooting incident last November. Said incident was the third in as many months for Riley, who fell victim to shooting incident in August as well as a stabbing incident the following month. He was 65 years old.

According to Kurt Riley, his family still ponders why unscrupulous persons would attack the popular producer so many times in such a short span. Having been in a coma since the shooting, Winston Riley never had the opportunity to gauge a sense of nor explain these happenings; something Kurt wishes had taken place before his death.

“Unfortunately Daddy didn’t wake up so we could talk to him to find out if there was something he was not telling us. He was a straightforward man, who was allergic to hypocrisy,” he told the Jamaica Observer.

Riley remains one of Reggae’s greatest influences; founding a new music group, the Techniques at the tender age of 16. In 1968, he established the famous Techniques record label where he produced legendary Reggae acts such as Alton Ellis, Hortense Ellis and others.

Additionally, his single, Double Barrel topped Reggae charts in the United Kingdom and Holland while his Stalag Riddim (1973) has often been remade by several local producers.

Take Him Out, is a featured single on Grammy winning recording artiste, M`ya’s new album, KISS. The R&B sweetheart is as equally excited about the song as her guest performer, Spice. The anticipated club banger tells the tale of a relationship falling apart, a story females can definitely relate to say’s Spice. The music video is currently in post production and will be launched in both Jamaica and the United States next month. The American singer has always been a fan and supporter of reggae music evidenced in the Billboard hit, Girls Dem Sugarwith Beenie Man.

Spice has started off the year on a high, with nominations from the Jamaica Star and Youth View Awards, a total of five nods. She dominated last year with her mega hit, Jim Screechie that scorched the airwaves for weeks on end. The summer song, Fun that features, music hit maker, Missy Elliot was also in high rotation. Spice is now on to a Brand New Page as the title of her new, one drop release suggests. The deeply conscious and soul searching ballad shows her versatility; a far cry from Ramping Shop.

Catering to a broad cross section of fans, she is prepared to deliver for all tiers. Her third release, Gyal a Chat is expected to be an overnight sensation on the hardcore dancehall scene. This track is clean yet exciting, full of life and colorful, reminiscent of the early nineties where fun poking songs rocked the out door sessions on the pepper-seed among other rhythms.

Promoter seeks compensation from I-Octane following holiday show

The wallet of internationally-acclaimed Dancehall/Reggae singjay, I-Octane could soon be lighter after a promoter claims he wrecked an event he performed at during the holiday season.

I-Octane performed at the Western Kite Festival at the Mannings School in Westmoreland on New Year’s Day (Sunday). The event also featured Reggae singer, Romain Virgo and Dancehall star, Popcaan.

In a radio interview on Tuesday, the festival’s lead promoter, Tia Reinford intimated that patrons began littering the stage with bottles after I-Octane abruptly ended his set. Reportedly, I-Octane asked event organizers to dim the lights during his performance but couldn’t meet his demand. At that point, I-Octane walked off stage in disgust; prompting the bottle throwing incident.

According to an angry Reinford, “It is his fault because yuh cyaah come to an event and talk about ‘bottle a selector…you can’t do that.”

Additionally, Reinford explained that a camera man recorded footage of the incident. Reinford said that the organizer in charge of the light told I-Octane to keep performing while they fixed the lighting issue. Following that exchange, the Badmind Fi The Year singer threw his mic down on the stage and walked off, leading fans to throw bottles on the stage in anger. Law enforcement officials then escorted the singjay out of the venue.

As a result, Reinford seeks compensation from I-Octane and his manager, Ray Alexander for damages caused. The promoter revealed that she paid Octane JA$500,000 to book the artiste for the festival but deserves her money back given that he did not fulfill his performance requirements. Reinford also claims that she paid I-Octane US$900 for a hotel room which he never stayed at prior to performing at the show.

Responding to the promoter’s claims, I-Octane vehemently denied destroying the New Year’s Day event; insisting that Reinford apologized for issues that occurred during the show but criticized the promoter for a sub-standard organization of the event. Furthermore, he said that fans threw bottles once they realized that hewould not return to the stage; blaming the organizers for not allowing the set to conclude properly while questioning their professionalism.

The artiste, whose real name is Byiome Muir, stated that fans were waiting for him to perform since 5 p.m.; slated to hit the stage after Popcaan’s set. However, I-Octane ended up working with Romain Virgo for a short while until technical issues were resolved.

As for compensation, I-Octane relented that he and his management team could work out a settlement. However, she called out the promoter for blaming organizers for the mishaps during his set, yet changing her tone following the show’s ending.

“She was blaming the people dem at the stage show, she a blame dem mek everybody hear. Dats why di people dem are so upset,” he said.

This wasn’t the first grouse I-Octane had regarding a performance or potential appearance at an event during the holidays. Billed as one of the main acts for STING 2011, the singjay was one of many notable absences from the major Dancehall stage show on December 26, 2011.

Buju Banton’s appeal could take up to a year, says lawyer

Embattled Dancehall singjay, Mark Myrie, more popularly known as Buju Banton, may have to wait several months before knowing whether or not he will be a free man.

Last Friday, Buju Banton’s legal team filed an appeal in a Georgia-based appeals court; attempting to overturn the Grammy-winning singer’s 10 year prison sentence on drug-related charges. In said appeal, Buju’s lawyers cited a possible violation by U.S. government officials of the Speedy Trial Act; a Sixth Amendment rightafforded to defendants so that they avoid being subjected to unreasonably lengthy incarceration prior to a fair trial. Additionally, Buju’s legal team detailed reasoning as to why their client was an unwilling part of the drug conspiracy he was later convicted of.
