Usain Bolt is playing a whole family of characters in Virgin Media's latest multi-million pound advertising campaign.

Created by BBH, the new ad shows the whole Bolt clan simultaneously using Virgin Media's superfast broadband service to perform their favourite tasks. The Jamaican sprinter takes on a range of roles including a cheeky baby Bolt and a mischievous Mrs Bolt whose favourite athlete is Mo Farah.

Richard Larcombe, brand and marketing director at Virgin Media, said: "The growth of in-home devices is increasing exponentially, as such, customers rely on their network more and more to deliver a seamless experience.

"Usain brings the ads to life with his brilliant portrayal of an unforgettable Virgin Media family."

Media planning has been handled by Fifty6 and the ad will run for the first time during Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 on ITV London on 1 January.

The advertising push comes as Virgin Media prepares to introduce a 152mb broadband service next year, which it claims will be "twice as fast" as any of its rivals.

Dancehall artiste Kiprich was dethroned as the clash king early Friday morning at the 30th anniversary of Sting.

Former Portmore Empire artiste Black Ryno surprised the crowd inside the Jamworld entertainment complex as he left Kiprich almost speechless.Minutes before Ryno's entrance Kiprich seemed confident of winning the US$30,000 up for grabs, urging DJ Mad Cobra to join him onstage for a lyrical showdown.

But it was Ryno that took on the challenge.

"A joke suppmn, is wa dis dem send up here," Kiprich declared as the crowd roared with excitement.

For approx seven minutes Kiprich had the advantage as he freestyled about Ryno and Popcaan's war at last year's Sting referring to Ryno as "Vybz Kartel's beating stick".

However Ryno fired back with a string of rhymes leaving Kiprich dumbstruck as the crowd booed and clapped him off stage.

Kiprich later returned onstage to congratulate his victorious rival who received the cash and a new Sting clash champion belt.

After leaving Sting embarrassed last year when his protege Popcaan pushed him offstage, former Gaza artiste Black Ryno returned to make a name for himself this year.

The artiste ambushed Kiprich who was expecting a challenge from Mad Cobra and walked away with 3 million dollars cash. Kiprich who did not deejay much during the clash, says he was not prepared for Ryno, however that did not matter to the fans who only wanted a clash and didnt care which angle it was coming from.

The Clash King Kiprich was left licking his wounds and promises to deliver next year, when Black Ryno is expected to defend that champion belt at Sting 2014.

Dancehall artiste, D'ANGEL, recently had a wardrobe malfunction which brought her international attention after being picked up by international sites mediatakeout and dancehalltakeout.

Apparently the artiste is enjoying the attention and repeated the stunt, this time on purpose at Sting 30, while on stage with Ninja Man, the artiste sat down on the stage and spread her legs for Sting and Pay Per view to see, or course she was wearing underwear, but patrons still got an eye full.

2 Chainz flops at Sting, Wycliffe delivers

2-chainz-feds.jpg

2 Chains left Sting 30 with a sour taste in his mouth after delivering a solid set of American hits that did not connect with the hardcore dance-hall audience. The rapper pulled for hits such as Birthday Song and Bees In The Trap. However there were no fire works in his favor, instead the patrons stood staring at him.

The rapper apparently in shock at the poor response tried to let the patrons know that he was an accomplished rapper. "I got nominated for a Grammy twice, I have two albums , I have a record deal...you seem not to know what the fuck is going on," the rapper said. However the crowd response was the same.

At the end of his allotted time on stage the rapper begged for more time stating that he was not prepared to travel to Jamaica and not perform most of his materials. Some patrons tried to clap him off  stage, however many stood and watched with a dead stare, apparently they didn't want to boo the rapper, simply out of respect.

On the other hand Wycliffe had a remarkable set delving into his pool of classics. He also paid homage to incarcerated artistes Vybz Kartel and Buju Banton and cursed a few Jamaican badwords that had the audience in a frenzy.

Danielle DI beats Stacious in selecting Clash

danielle-di.jpg

The Celebrity Face-Off ended inside a packed Famous Nightclub, Portmore, St Catherine, last Thursday with DI decisively defeating Stacious in the final celebrity matchup.

There was no money at stake in the face-off between Stacious and DI it was all fun and friendly entertainment, but that did not lessen the intensity of their musical battle.

The two took to the stage after a number of performances, among them Kalado, Alkaline impressing the audience and Major Mackerel taking the house down with squeaks, growls, a potshot at Elephant Man and a couple of the songs with which he made his name in the late 1980s to early 1990s.

The final night judges were Cool Face, Scott Wilson and Richie D.

stacious-photo-1.jpg

Stacious won her only round of the night in the opening juggling, making a smashing entrance in a Ninja suit which never looked as good on an actor. She started on a spiritual note, with Psalms 23.

Chronixx welcomed the general and Mavado's Messiah hit a good note. However, Stacious' round was soon over, as time was called to her surprise.

DI had gone first in the round, introduced as the uptown downtown gal by host Nuffy, the Rebel singer delight the crowd throughout.

Opening with Peter Tosh's Creation, DI was soon in dub plate mode, showing that she was well stocked for the encounter.

DI warned from early that "a nuh pretty ting tonight" - and it was not.

There was a "sound killer/Stacious dead an DI a de winner" dub, Jah Cure had his say and the rockers continued with Tarrus Riley's Beware on dub. However, there were some microphone problems during her set.

Riley also contributed One Drop on dub and DI closed with the query "Stacious a who you try come dis" to close.

The judges all scored it four points for Stacious to three for DI, with the point for crowd response going to the former.

It proved to be Stacious' only high point for the face-off.

DI started the next round by saying that her opponent was clad in Ninja Man's 'wear an' lef' and, although her first song in the 45 round fell flat, when she had Kartel "sen' fi di army", DI was on a roll. And she closed with the surprise draw of the night, Jimmy Cliff's Harder They Come, which scored.

Stacious replied by reeling out a scroll, proceeding to read names of many men DI was supposed to have had relationships with - all from the entertainment business - tossing the paper aside when the list got too long.

Bounty Killer's Lodge was her opening shot, but despite her best efforts, the round was not to be hers.

All the judges awarded DI six points for that 45 round, plus the point for crowd response. Stacious earning five points on two scorecards and four on the third.

It was in the final dub-for-dub round that DI really took the gloves off.

Stacious went first in the killer round, starting on the wrong footing with a dub of Barrington Levy's Murderer. She would not recover, one of the problems being that the sound quality was not good.

On the other hand, DI was to the point and roused the crowd immediately, living up to her promise "when mi play da one ya, gunshot inna yu marrow."

There were boos for Stacious' Bounty dub. In reply DI had Mackerel snarling "unda deh" in combination with KipRich to score heavily.

Although Stacious noted that it was a 'regular' tune, as "dem song deh play every week", the boos started early. And they continued with her Mavado dub.

After DI's rousing reply, in which the introduction said Stacious was "kinda spacious", Stacious got more boos for her dub, which was supposed to have sent DI "dung inna hole".

At this point Cool Face paused the proceedings to appeal to the engineer one more time for better sound.

DI was in her element, putting a leg up on the console assigned to Stacious and rocking to the beat as the dub sank home. The dub matched her bravado, Macka Diamond's Dye Dye, putting the battle out of contention.

The announcement of the winner of the round and face-off was no surprise, DI scoring seven by all three judges' reckoning, with two awarding Stacious four points and another five.




Word on the streets is that after this article was written, lawyers were rained in immediately. Next time dont call di people dem name. Here goes the article.

Bugle, singjay, has a hit song titled Nuh Compatible, which addresses the issue of his incompatible relationship with a woman. Some persons have being speculating if the song was done for Bugle's babymother, Raine Seville. The speculations started after vulgar promotional pictures of Raine and Konshens hit the Internet. Bugle has neither confirmed nor denied the speculations. Persons can draw their own conclusions based on their understanding of his lyrics.

This song is a refreshing change to so many songs which usually deal with explicit sex exploits or 'having girls in a bundle'. It is in the same category of I-Octane's song Gyal a Gimme Bun, which highlights how he is in an incompatible relationship because he is not spending time with his woman, and getting 'bun' in spite of all his efforts to make her comfortable.

Music is important and can inspire great action and lead to better understanding of issues. In this song, Bugle helps us to understand the importance of compatibility on many factors.

Bugle bemoans that they have personality differences 'You waan go easy, But mi waan go hard'. He is a go-getter with a great drive. Obviously, he is a type A person who is greatly motivated to achieve. She lacks motivation to accomplish things. The differences run deep because she 'hype' while he is conscious and has his eyes on the 'prize'. She perceives life as one party; she was a party girl; she is a groupie always hanging around reggae artistes. She is boisterous and loud while he was not into that.

She wants to spend money recklessly: 'You waan pretty car' and is a shopaholic wanting more shoes than the famous late Imelda Marcos of the Philippines, while he wants to invest in furniture.

They also have serious differences. She was into junk food while he wants 'soul food'. He concludes that it is a useless endeavour to pursue such a relationship. He makes an honest assessment and said, 'No make sense wi try, mi no comfortable, And to how mi si things wi no compatible'.

This girl does not lack qualifications because she was 'educated' but, unfortunately, she was not wise. She was not intelligent. Apparently, he was not well schooled but he is streetwise. He knew his way around because he studied at the 'university of life'.

She believes life owes her a living, 'You waan gain and nothing you never try'. She was lazy. She was a loafer. She was also envious, 'Mi cyaa believe how yo eye dem dry'.

She wanted to live off men 'cause you a wait pon dem fi mine yo' and was sexually loose, 'That's why yo end up wid a bag a man a wine yo' ...

This is not a song that is stereotyping women. It is highlighting differences between men and women. However, it would have been good if Bugle had identified that he, too, had faults and she must have some saving grace. I-Octane's song is a more balanced song on a problem relationship.

Nevertheless, Bugle's song is powerful and should be listened to by persons in relationships. Persons need to analyse honestly their relationship and decide whether it is worth going forward. It is important to have similar attitudes towards financial management, setting goals and working towards achieving them. It is also important to ensure that your partner gets along with in-laws. Sexual looseness and unfaithfulness will cause problems in a relationship and these issues have to be confronted truthfully. These issues will determine whether you are compatible.

Jamaica's latest dance move dubbed 'walk like a dog then c... up and p...' has gone viral on YouTube leaving many viewers upset.

The video which has over 8,500 views, forced several persons to post comments expressing their disappointment about the dance move and the name that it has been given.

Two videos were posted about the dance last week, showcasing a female dancer who goes by the name TC.

In both video clips, which were seemingly captured at a party, the female dancer is seen gyrating her body, before going on 'all fours', and posing like a dog lifting its leg to urinate.

A YouTube user commented under the video, "Dancehall has gone to the dogs."

Another posted, "Jamaica dancehall stop! unno look like eeeeediot. Really gyal, go read a damn book and better your life. Walk like a dog and c... up and p.... Really, that is what you a promote."

Meanwhile, Marcus B wrote, "This is why most people are talking ... about our country. What is really going on with black people,"he said.

In recent times, the entertainment scene has seen several dance moves with weird names. In October, one such dance move called the donkey kick made its debut. The move involves a woman gyrating and then kicking.

The donkey kick is at times combined with another dance called the 'muscle wine'.

Idris Elba gets emotion when asked to Play Mandela

Idris Elba put the phone down on his agent when he was asked to play Nelson Mandela.

The 41-year-old actor was so worried about being cast as South Africa's first black president in the biopic 'Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom' he refused to consider the idea and he even tried to pass the role onto Morgan Freeman - who played Mandela in 2009 film 'Invictus'.

Speaking in the January issue of Reader's Digest magazine, he said: "You know, I was really, really sensitive [about the role]. My agent called up to ask if I wanted to play Mandela and I put the phone down on him. I was like, no way. Mandela? Couldn't do it.

"You're asking me to play Mandela, do you think I'm going to play a f***ing Disney Mandela? Don't ask me to do that yeah?

"Then I thought to myself, called him back and said, 'Can I be honest? If it's a grey-haired version of the fist-pumping Mandela, I'm not the actor to bring in. I'm not Morgan, go with Morgan."

Idris - who plays a younger version of Mandela showing his struggle as a younger man against apartheid rule in South Africa - is being tipped for an Oscar for Best Actor for his portrayal of the late Nelson Mandela, who died aged 95 last Thursday (05.12.13) following prolonged lung problems.

Before Tessanne Chin was announced the winner of The Voice tonight, her biggest moment on the show was her performance with five-time Grammy winner Celine Dion.

Celine and Tessanne sang Love Can Move Mountains to thunderous applause.

Following the performance, Tessanne tweeted: "Absolutely speechless Miss @celinedion thank you for making my dream come true. You are even more amazing in person!!! It was an honour."

Tessanne also got another surprise when she was given a car courtesy of Kia Motors, as well as the other finalists, Jacquie Lee and Will Champlin.

The night was also filled with other performances from the top 20 contestants, along with One Republic, Paramore, Ne-Yo and Aloe Blacc.

Following the many performances in the two hour-long show, the contestants lined up on stage to speak to their coaches and await the results.

"A better coach for me I could not find. I thank you everyday for choosing me," Tessanne said to Adam Levine. "It has been a great pleasure, you have been a great, solid guy."

With nerves and emotions very high, Champlin was announced third place winner.

Then said Daly: "The winner of The Voice is Tessanne Chin."

Following the announcement, tears flowed as Tessanne sang a song written for her by One Republic.

The last time Half Way Tree had so much people at once was during Olympics and of course world championship. But following Digicel's decision to send thousands of text messages inviting all their subscribers to watch the show at Half Way Tree, Jamaica now has a new reason to line up in the middle of the town staring a the huge monitors erected facing the transport center.

Tessanne Chin who performed well through the competition not only had the support of her family, but the entire Jamaica and the diaspora.

Several Watch parties supporting the artiste were reportedly held in the USA in support of the Jamaican beauty.

Adam Levine found himself in a tough position going into "The Voice's" last performance show Monday. Two of his singers are in the final three. Both, understandably, are trying to win. What's a coach to do?

In Adam's case, the answer was to throw all his support to Tessanne Chin.

Give the coach credit -- he sure wasn't subtle about it. Since only one of his contestants can win, he went all-in for his Jamaican singer with the reggae roots and the big voice. That's a perfectly justifiable strategy, given how well she performed on Monday, and how she's done all season.

With Sting's 30th anniversary show just around the corner, the Don Gorgon Ninja Man is set to retain his title as one of the greatest clash artistes of all time.

"Dem can sign all who dem waan sign, but mek dem know sey nuh come wid nuh competition because anything cross dis yah border a go dead lyrically. Jamaican flag naah guh a grung,"

ninja-man-sting.jpg
Ninja Man added that State Minister of Entertainment, Damion Crawford, must be commended for supporting dancehall in a corporate way and recognising how lucrative the industry is.

"A dancehall artiste bring home money and spend money pon de yute dem mek it circulate," Ninja articulated.

He advised the government to come to the table with zoning, which will allow venues for lyrics with adult content and for which the 2 a.m. shut-off time will be adjusted.

With Sting dubbed, 'The greatest one night show on earth', Ninja Man is adamant that dancehall music is not dead, but has deteriorated.

"Josey Wales ah still de Colonel, Chaplin a still de Principal, Shabba Ranks a de Emperor, Yellowman and Beenie Man a King. Shabba get two Grammy, Buju get one Grammy and Beenie get one Grammy," he said.

Questioned further as to his views on dancehall being 'locked up in jail', Ninja Man stated that no one artiste is responsible for the genre.

"No one artiste cyan mek dancehall guh a grung! Every six months a new artiste buss and prepare fi mek him name pon Sting. Dis year every artiste a try win US $30,000 fi kill KipRich."

Returning his focus to his impending Sting clash, Ninja Man stated that this year's show will be a celebration.

"Sting dis year have supn fi young people and fi ol' people. The venue a go secure. It's going to be a celebration with with lyrics, entertainment and enjoyment. Di ol' balladeer dem, me, Cat and Bailey dem. Mi not even tell nobody whe mi a come wid dis year. Just come out fi Sting," Ninja Man said.

Already on this year's line up for Sting are 2 Chainz and Wycliffe Jean. There are also talks about Busta Rhymes being considered for booking.

While Vybz Kartel lingers behind bars, ex Gaza members are busy mending their bridges. Popcaan is said to have apologized to Bounty Killer earlier this year and sent the artiste a voice note for his birthday. Now Ex-Gaza member, dancehall star Jah Vinci, has teamed up with ex-Alliance member Bridgez to do a combination single called 'Dream Love' on the Diamond Music Empire label.

"We voiced the song three months ago. Jah Vinci is simply brilliant, he went into the studio, heard the rhythm and wrote the song on the spot. He wrote everything; he simply freestyled the song from start to finish, telling me what to sing and how to sing it. He is simply incredible," Bridgez said, adding that the experience was a bit intimidating given that Jah Vinci is such a great singer.

"It was a bit of a challenge because his voice is so strong, but I was able to dig deep and do my best. He really inspired me to do some things, and brought things out of me that I didn't know I could do," she revealed.

jah-vinci-photo-1.jpg
Jah Vinci enjoyed being the creative force behind the combination single. "I really enjoyed working with Bridgez, she is a really good singer whom I expect great things from in the future. I have been getting a lot of positive responses to the song from fans on Facebook and Twitter. DJ Wayne played it the other day, and several Sunciti Radio disc jocks have been playing it, so it's a good look," Jah Vinci said.

As 2013 draws to a close, the former 'Portmore Empire' star is determined to capture a bigger chunk of the marketplace. He released two videos recently, My Love on the 'Party Block' rhythm on the Hapilos Entertainment Label, and Mama Don't Cry, produced by brothers, Blade and Taz of Social Yaad on their 'Sacred Heart' rhythm.

Fans can expect a vast array of Jah Vinci's music from various renowned producers including Chimney Records, Hapilos Ent., So Unique Records and CrO2 (ZJ Chrome). Also a catalogue of other music videos is set to be released soon.Jah Vinci also recorded with Vybz Kartel's former rival Ma

Snoop (formerly Snoop Dogg) is nominated for Reincarnated. He says his conversion to Rastafari was inspired by a visit to Jamaica in 2012 when he experienced a spiritual awakening while meeting with a group of Rastafarian elders.

Sly and Robbie and the Jam Masters' Reggae Connection, Sizzla's The Messiah, One Love, One Life by Beres Hammond and Ziggy Marley in Concert are the other nominees for Best Reggae Album.

Steffens formed A Reggae Committee and served as its chairman until 2011. He has openly criticised the selection process, claiming that judges favour albums produced by the Marley family.

snoop-lion-photo-5.jpg

The Marleys have dominated the category since it was established in 1985. Brothers Ziggy, Damian and Stephen have won Grammys as solo acts, while Ziggy and Steve won multiple times as members of Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers.

Steffens, considered an authority on Bob Marley and the Wailers, believes this year's nominees maintain the trend of mediocre selections.

"The nominations this year fit into the pocket of name recognition more than anything else, regardless of sales or actual quality," he said.

Reincarnated, with sales of over 80,000 units, is the best selling reggae album for 2013. The year has been poor in terms of sales by Jamaican artistes, with American reggae bands performing better on the Billboard charts.

The Snoop set attracted mass coverage from mainstream media in the United States, due to his conversion from 'gangsta rap' icon to cultural artiste.

The lanky rapper (real name Calvin Broadus) is one of the godfathers of gangsta rap which emerged out of southern California's impoverished communities in the early 1990s with hardcore rap acts such as NWA and Ice T.

The 56th annual Grammy Awards is scheduled for the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles on January 26.

With just one performance left until a contestant is crowned the winner of The Voice, supporters of Tessanne Chin were confident as they awaited the names of the three contestants who would advance to the finals.

Tessanne Chin stood out during last night's performance show, battling through tears with a performance that coach Adam Levine described as the best performance in the history of the show.

Last week, Tessanne wowed fans with renditions of Bob Marley's Redemption Song and Katy Perry's Unconditionally, which saw the songs moving up the iTunes chart. After a world-class performance of Simon and Garfunkel's Bridge Over Troubled Water last night, the song rapidly climbed the iTunes chart and settled comfortably in the number one position. This automatically meant that Tessanne's votes were multiplied by five this week.

Questioned as to what moving on to the finals would mean to her, Tessanne declared it would be an honour.

"To have come this far is an honour in itself. To move forward would be a way for me to thank you for all your support. It would be a chance to change my life. I love you," she said.

With a record deal with Universal Music Group and US$100,000 (J$10m) within grasp, fans breathed a sigh of relief as host Carson Daly announced that Tessanne Chin was the first person moving into the finals and was just one week away from being declared 'The Voice'.

Joining Tessanne in the finals are Jacquie Lee from Team Christina and Will Champlin from Team Adam.




L.A Lewis challenges Bounty Killer and Mad Cobra

la-lewis-photo-1.jpg
LA Lewis is not taking his defeat to Tanto Blacks during the Magnum All-Star Celebrity $1,000,000 Face-Off last Thursday night lightly.

Turning his anger towards Mad Cobra and Bounty Killer, to declare war.

The first of Lewis' grouses has come because of a Bounty Killer dub unleashed by Tanto Blacks during the clash.

According to Lewis, he considers Bounty a friend, and a friend should not have given, "a clown, dub fi shoot mi. A clown him clown mi out."

The 'violation' does not mean an immediate war though as the 'Illuminati' (again self- proclaimed) is giving Bounty 88 hours to make a public apology.

"Bounty knows what 88 hours mean, double infinity. Tell Bounty don't ramp wid mi!"

According to LA Lewis, he has long told Bounty Killer he is the star of the night, "and me a di star a di day."

With that in mind, LA Lewis says Killer must be careful he (LA Lewis) doesn't "start wear piece a black an' start run di day an' di night".

"Him wave him rights fi call LA Lewis him friend," Lewis declared.

While L.A. Lewis has extended a time frame for quashing the possibility of a beef with Bounty, Mad Cobra is getting no such favours.

"Mad Cobra fi know seh a Gaza run Portmore and him run a quarter acre. Him run a quarter acre and call it Brixton," said Lewis.

His anger at Mad Cobra has come because, according to Lewis, the Flex singer had his fans boo him to ensure he lost the clash.

"Before mi start dem a boo," said Lewis.

"Cobra feel like seh him could a bring een im crew fi boo mi an' mi wouldn't know?" Lewis asked.

mad-cobra-photo-1.jpg

"Him fi memba seh, a me seh Gaza," said Lewis, going on to explain that Mad Cobra was angry that LA Lewis had done songs dissing him. According to Lewis, Cobra ran away from the impending clash, and, instead, chose underhanded methods of seeking revenge.

While angered at the two artistes because of the clash, Lewis says he has nothing against Tanto Blacks, who unceremoniously dispatched his efforts last Thursday.

"Mi big up Tanto Blacks on him victory. Is a trying yute 'an' mi nuh have nutt'n 'gainst him."

Turning his anger back to Bounty, Lewis pointed out that he was more than fair in giving the 88-hour ultimatum.

"If war start, nubaddy cyaa seh LA Lewis cause trouble. Mi gi him whole heap a time fi apologise."

Sizzla Kalonji Sends Condolence to The Mandela Family

on the heels of his first Grammy Nomination for 70th album, The Messiah

sizzla-i-m-gonna-give-you-love.jpg

Sizzla Kalonji and Kalonji Muzik send condolence to the Mandela Family and the People of South Africa on the heels of his first Grammy Nomination for 70th album, The Messiah. "We express our deep grief loosing our beloved President the Honorable Nelson Mandela. It is only right that we send our condolence to his family and Africa," says Sizzla.

With respect and honor from Judgment Yard he continues, "We love the President as our African Father, more over for standing up for our motherland Africa and all its brothers and sisters. Rest In Peace, our freedom fighter, we love you. Free Africa now, this moment, this instance."

Mr. Homer Harris, head of Sizzla's management team sends this message, "Condolence to the Mandela Family. The Reggae Community has been singing songs to dismantle apartheid since the 70's, 80's till now. We must not forget about our Giants like Nelson Mandela and Steve Biko. The Reggae community must continue to chant messages across the globe to fight against oppression all over the world."

While the world celebrates the life of one of our greatest Giants, the same weekend our team received news that Sizzla had been nominated for his first Grammy for his 70th album, The Messiah. So while we honor and celebrate Madiba Mandela, we honor and celebrate the achievements of Sizzla Kalonji who has used his music as a pedastol to spread messages of empowerment, unity, love, upliftment, justice, and peace.

The Turkish FA (TFF) are planning to summon the Galatasaray pair to appear before the Professional Football Discipline Committee because they had not sought prior permission to display their messages.

It is in contrast to England where games this weekend have been preceded by a minute of applause in celebration of Mandela's life and his role in ending apartheid in South Africa and transforming the international profile of Africa.

Plans to discipline Drogba and Eboue are certain to attract criticism and fuel debate in Turkey, where the TFF are trying to keep political imagery out of football as directed by FIFA, although it has proved increasingly difficult in a football-crazy nation beset by political tension.

Players from Fethiyespor were recently charged by the disciplinary committee for wearing t-shirts reading: 'Great Ataturk' in homage of the founder of modern Turkey.

After temporarily ditching hardcore lyrics for songs about unity and anti-violence, Snoop Dogg has seen his Reggae efforts rewarded by The Recording Academy as he was named one of five finalists on Friday for the Best Reggae Album award at next year's Grammy Awards.

The artist, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, is being nominated for his album, Reincarnated, released in April while using the Snoop Lion moniker. The album, which features collaborations with Mavado, Popcaan, Mr. Vegas, Drake and Miley Cyrus amongst others, was the best-selling Reggae album in the United States this year, with over 21,000 copies sold in its debut week and, to date, has sold well over 50,000 copies there.

Despite criticism from legendary Jamaican artists such as Bunny Wailer and Lady Saw, the album received a number of positive reviews. However, the Snoop Lion act appears to have been cut, at least for the time being, as he recently changed his name again, to Snoopzilla.

Another artist receiving his first Reggae Grammy nod is Sizzla Kalonji for his album, The Messiah. Having recorded over 70 albums in his career, it is the first chance he will have a music's most prestigious award. The Messiah features 15 tracks, including Chant Dem Down and Psalm 121.

Beres Hammond is also amongst the finalists, securing his first nomination since 2002 with his One Love, One Life double album, featuring the hit single, In My Arms.

The other two contenders for the Best Reggae Album award are four-time winner, Ziggy Marley for Ziggy Marley in Concert and Sly and Robbie and the Jam Masters with Reggae Connection.

Nelson Mandella Dead at age 95

Nelson Mandela, who became one of the world's most beloved statesmen and a colossus of the 20th century when he emerged from 27 years in prison to negotiate an end to white minority rule in South Africa, has died. He was 95.

South African president Jacob Zuma made the announcement at a news conference late Thursday, saying, "We've lost our greatest son."

The signs of Nelson Mandela's epic life, hope and progress can be seen everywhere in Soweto, Rick Reilly writes. Story
 
Mandela's death closed the final chapter in South Africa's struggle to cast off apartheid, leaving the world with indelible memories of a man of astonishing grace and good humor. Rock concerts celebrated his birthday. Hollywood stars glorified him on screen. And his regal bearing, graying hair and raspy voice made him instantly recognizable across the globe.

President Barack Obama said the world lost an influential, courageous and "profoundly good" man with Mandela's death.

Speaking from the White House, Obama said Mandela "no longer belongs to us. He belongs to the ages."

"I am one of the countless millions who drew inspiration from Nelson Mandela's life," he continued. "And like so many around the globe, I cannot fully imagine my own life without the example that Nelson Mandela set."

Obama met with Mandela's family earlier this year when he visited South Africa. But he did not meet with the ailing leader, who was hospitalized throughout the U.S. president's visit.

As South Africa's first black president, the ex-boxer, lawyer and prisoner No. 46664 paved the way to racial reconciliation with well-chosen gestures of forgiveness. He lunched with the prosecutor who sent him to jail, sang the apartheid-era Afrikaans anthem at his inauguration, and traveled hundreds of miles to have tea with the widow of Hendrik Verwoerd, the prime minister at the time he was imprisoned.

His most memorable gesture came when he strode onto the field before the 1995 Rugby World Cup final in Johannesburg. When he came on the field in South African colors to congratulate the victorious South African team, he brought the overwhelmingly white crowd of 63,000 to its feet, chanting "Nelson! Nelson! Nelson!"

For he had marched headlong into a bastion of white Afrikanerdom -- the temple of South African rugby -- and made its followers feel they belonged in the new South Africa.

Mandela also helped seal his country's bid to become the first in Africa to host a World Cup.

Tragically, he kept a low profile during the 2010 World Cup after his great-granddaughter was killed in an automobile accident following a concert to kick off the opening night of the event.

After much anticipation and speculation that he would remain absent as his family continued to mourn the 13-year-old Zenani Mandela, he attended the World Cup's closing ceremonies amid a thunderous mix of vuvuzelas and roars from the crowd.

At the same time, Mandela was himself uneasy with the idea of being an icon and he did not escape criticism as an individual and a politician, though much of it was muted by his status as a unassailable symbol of decency and principle. As president, he failed to craft a lasting formula for overcoming South Africa's biggest post-apartheid problems, including one of the world's widest gaps between rich and poor. In his writings, he pondered the heavy cost to his family of his decision to devote himself to the struggle against apartheid.

He had been convicted of treason and sentenced to life imprisonment in 1964 for leading a campaign of sabotage against the government, and sent to the notorious Robben Island prison. It was forbidden to quote him or publish his photo, yet he and other jailed members of his banned African National Congress were able to smuggle out messages of guidance to the anti-apartheid crusade.

As time passed -- the "long, lonely, wasted years," as he termed them -- international awareness of apartheid grew more acute. By the time Mandela turned 70 he was the world's most famous political prisoner. Such were his mental reserves, though, that he turned down conditional offers of freedom from his apartheid jailers and even found a way to benefit from confinement.

"People tend to measure themselves by external accomplishments, but jail allows a person to focus on internal ones; such as honesty, sincerity, simplicity, humility, generosity and an absence of variety," Mandela says in one of the many quotations displayed at the Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg. "You learn to look into yourself."

Thousands died, were tortured and were imprisoned in the decades-long struggle against apartheid, so that when Mandela emerged from prison in 1990, smiling and waving to the crowds, the image became an international icon of freedom to rival the fall of the Berlin Wall.

South Africa's white rulers had portrayed Mandela as the spearhead of a communist revolution and insisted that black majority rule would usher in the chaos and bloodshed that had beset many other African countries as they shook off colonial rule.

Yet since apartheid ended, South Africa has held four parliamentary elections and elected three presidents, always peacefully, setting an example on a continent where democracy is still new and fragile. Its democracy has flaws, and the African National Congress has struggled to deliver on promises. It is a front-runner ahead of 2014 elections, but corruption scandals and other missteps have undercut some of the promise of earlier years.

I am one of the countless millions who drew inspiration from Nelson Mandela's life. And like so many around the globe, I cannot fully imagine my own life without the example that Nelson Mandela set.
"
-- President Barack Obama 

"We have confounded the prophets of doom and achieved a bloodless revolution. We have restored the dignity of every South African," Mandela said shortly before stepping down as president in 1999 at age 80.

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela was born July 18, 1918, the son of a tribal chief in Transkei, one of the future "Bantustans," independent republics set up by the apartheid regime to cement the separation of whites and blacks.

Mandela's royal upbringing gave him a dignified bearing that became his hallmark. Many South Africans of all races would later call him by his clan name, Madiba, as a token of affection and respect.

Growing up at a time when virtually all of Africa was under European colonial rule, Mandela attended Methodist schools before being admitted to the black University of Fort Hare in 1938. He was expelled two years later for his role in a student strike.

He moved to Johannesburg and worked as a policeman at a gold mine, boxed as an amateur heavyweight and studied law.

His first wife, nurse Evelyn Mase, bore him four children. A daughter died in infancy, a son was killed in a car crash in 1970 and another son died of AIDS in 2005. The couple divorced in 1957, and Evelyn died in 2004.

Mandela began his rise through the anti-apartheid movement in 1944, when he helped form the ANC Youth League.

He organized a campaign in 1952 to encourage defiance of laws that segregated schools, marriage, housing and job opportunities. The government retaliated by barring him from attending gatherings and leaving Johannesburg, the first of many "banning" orders he was to endure.

After a two-day nationwide strike was crushed by police, he and a small group of ANC colleagues decided on military action and Mandela pushed to form the movement's guerrilla wing, Umkhonto we Sizwe, or Spear of the Nation.

He was arrested in 1962 and sentenced to five years' hard labor for leaving the country illegally and inciting blacks to strike.

A year later, police uncovered the ANC's underground headquarters on a farm near Johannesburg and seized documents outlining plans for a guerrilla campaign. At a time when African colonies were one by one becoming independent states, Mandela and seven co-defendants were sentenced to life in prison.

Nelson Mandela made a statement about reconciliation by wearing a Springboks jersey and congratulating captain Francois Pienaar after the team won the 1995 Rugby World Cup.

"I do not deny that I planned sabotage," he told the court. "I did not plan it in a spirit of recklessness, nor because I have any love of violence. I planned it as a result of a calm and sober assessment of the political situation that had arisen after years of tyranny, exploitation and oppression of my people by whites."

The ANC's armed wing was later involved in a series of high-profile bombings that killed civilians, and many in the white minority viewed the imprisoned Mandela as a terrorist. Up until 2008, when President George W. Bush rescinded the order, he could not visit the U.S. without a waiver from the secretary of state certifying he was not a terrorist.

From the late 1960s South Africa gradually became an international pariah, expelled from the U.N., banned from the Olympics. In 1973 Mandela refused a government offer of release on condition he agree to confine himself to his native Transkei. In 1982 he and other top ANC inmates were moved off Robben Island to a mainland prison. Three years later Mandela was again offered freedom, and again he refused unless segregation laws were scrapped and the government negotiated with the ANC.

In 1989, F.W. de Klerk became president. This Afrikaner recognized the end was near for white-ruled South Africa. Mandela, for his part, continued, even in his last weeks in prison, to advocate nationalizing banks, mines and monopoly industries -- a stance that frightened the white business community.

But talks were already underway, with Mandela being spirited out of prison to meet a white Cabinet minister.

On Feb. 11, 1990, inmate No. 46664, who had once been refused permission to leave prison for his mother's funeral, went free and walked hand-in-hand with Winnie, his wife. Blacks across the country erupted in joy -- as did many whites.

Mandela took charge of the ANC, shared the 1993 Nobel Peace Prize with de Klerk and was elected president by a landslide in South Africa's first all-race election the following year.

At his inauguration, he stood hand on heart, saluted by white generals as he sang along to two anthems: the apartheid-era Afrikaans "Die Stem," ("The Voice") and the African "Nkosi Sikelel' iAfrika" ("Lord Bless Africa").

To black South Africans expecting a speedy new deal, Mandela pleaded for patience. The millions denied proper housing, schools and health care under apartheid had expected the revolution to deliver quick fixes, but Mandela recognized he had to embrace free market policies to keep white-dominated big business on his side and attract foreign investment.

For all his saintly image, Mandela had an autocratic streak. When black journalists mildly criticized his government, he painted them as stooges of the whites who owned the media. Whites with complaints were dismissed as pining for their old privileges.

He denounced Bush as a warmonger and the U.S. having "committed unspeakable atrocities in the world." When asked about his closeness to Fidel Castro and Moammar Gadhafi despite human rights violations in the countries they ruled, Mandela explained that he wouldn't forsake supporters of the anti-apartheid struggle.

With his fellow Nobelist, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, he set up the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, which allowed human rights offenders of all races to admit their crimes publicly in return for lenient treatment. It proved to be a kind of national therapy that would become a model for other countries emerging from prolonged strife.

He increasingly left the governing to deputy president Thabo Mbeki, who took over when Mandela's term ended in June 1999 and he declined to seek another -- a rarity among African presidents.

"I must step down while there are one or two people who admire me," Mandela joked at the time. When he retired, he said he was going to stand on a street with a sign that said: "Unemployed, no job. New wife and large family to support."

His marriage to Winnie had fallen apart after his release and he was now married to Graca Machel, the widowed former first lady of neighboring Mozambique.

He is survived by Machel, his daughter Makaziwe by his first marriage, and daughters Zindzi and Zenani by his second.




Vybz Kartel Jesus painting angers Christians

vybz-kartel-photo-12.jpg

An image that is currently being circulated online of dancehall artiste Vybz Kartel being depicted as a god has sparked outrage and mix reactions from viewers on social media.

The painting shows a fully tattooed, light-skinned Kartel sitting high on a throne made of gold in the clouds. In the image, he is seen holding a staff in his right hand and contorting his fingers to the 'empire' sign on the other.

Kartel can also be seen in the painting dressed in a pink toga, purple cap with the letter 'W' and matching Clarks, while having his chin caressed by a topless woman on bended knees staring adoringly at him as he looks on.

But unlike the doting woman in the painting, some viewers were not amused while others stated that it was a ploy by the artiste to remain relevant during his incarceration.

"That photo is just so wrong in so many ways!" a Facebook viewer commented.

Another stated, "And he draws out people yet again, when unuh gonna learn seh him do this just for the attention! Smart man!"

The painting's creator has also come under scrutiny by viewers, with many accusing him of idolizing the artiste.

"The painting is about his ego and the image he was portraying to the world," he said.

When asked what was the inspiration behind the picture, Robinson said "The inspiration was how the media portrayed Kartel at the time."

He also said, "The painting is a recreation of 'Ingres's - Jupiter and Thetis'. It illustrates Jamaica's media portrayal of Vybz Kartel as a larger than life figure in dancehall. They placed him on that throne and dancehall society at his feet and blamed him for the behaviour of youths."

Robinson also sought to dismiss claims that the painting was published by Kartel or members of his camp as a ploy to stir up controversy to keep the artiste relevant during his incarceration.

"Kartel has nothing to do with the picture, this was created before he was imprisoned, he knows nothing about the painting and has probably never seen it."

The picture first surfaced on this Free Vybz Kartel page on facebook.





Blood found in Vybz Kartels house not Lizard's?

Government forensic analyst Sharon Bryson testified today in Vybz Kartel's murder trial that blood found at the entertainer's house was in fact human but that a comparative DNA test did not return a match to Clive 'Lizard' Williams.

Earlier in the trial, an investigator testified that he found what appeared to be bloodstains at the entertainer's home in Havendale, St Andrew where Williams was allegedly beaten before being killed on August 16, 2011 over two missing guns.

The analyst told the court that the sample was first examined for blood followed by DNA analysis, and that the test returned a positive result for blood of human origin, belonging to a male.

The forensic analyst said because there was no body, swabs were taken from an uncle of the alleged deceased, however the results did not return a match with the sample taken from Kartel's house.

Kartel is jointly charged with fellow entertainer Shawn Storm, Kahira Jones, Shane Williams and Andre St John for William's murder.

The principal of a high school in St Catherine had to seek medical attention yesterday after being attacked by a male student who punched him repeatedly.

Reports are that about 12:30 p.m., the principal saw a fifth-form student with a hoody on along with an earring. The boy was called and he was said to have refused going to the principal.

He was subsequently held and was being led to the office, when he reportedly started to rain blows on the principal who fell.

The enraged attacker continued punching him while he was on the ground. He ended up suffering swollen lips, a cut over his right eye, forehead and bruises all over.

Teachers had to rescue principal and washed his bloody face in the school's bathroom.

The police were called in and the student was taken into custody.

Called the Bog Walk Police Station, personnel acknowledged the incident, but refused to give details.

Meanwhile, calls to the school went unanswered.

Tessanne Chin Gone to Semi Finals !!

tessanne-chin-photo-1.jpg
Maintaining the momentum of two spectacular performances on last night's show, Tessanne Chin supporters once again rallied around the artiste to secure her a spot in the semi-finals of The Voice.

Adam Levine, who had pulled off a 'Houdini' act by having all his contestants saved from elimination in consecutive weeks, was hoping for that trend to continue into the semi-finals ... And, it did.

Last night, Blake Shelton admitted that Tessanne was a world-class vocalist and voters certainly agreed. With both of her performances of the previous night making it into the Top 20 on the iTunes chart, the TessTop4 parties held across the Corporate Area certainly paid off.

After announcing that her family's support meant everything to her, Tessanne breathed a sigh of relief as it was announced that she was guaranteed a spot in the semis.

"Their support has meant everything. They believed in me when I didn't believe in myself. I want to thank them for always believing in me," Tessanne said.

Earlier in the night, in the spirit of the Yuletide season, Kelly Clarkson opened the show with her latest Christmas single Underneath the Tree, and prepared the contestants for the inevitable voting results. Tessanne also joined contestants Matthew Schuler and Jacquie Lee earlier in the night for a rendition of You Got The Love by Florence Welch. She also joined all the contestants for a spectacular rendition of O Holy Night.

With only five contestants guaranteed a spot in the semi-finals, and, with this being the last opportunity for fans to instantly save one of the contestants via tweeting, it came as a shock to many that fan-favourite Matthew Schuler was once again at the bottom.

Unfortunately, he was not as lucky the second time around, and was eliminated.

Joining Tessanne in the semi-finals are Cole Vosbury from Team Blake, Jacquie Lee from Team Christina and Will Champlin and James Wolpert from Team Adam. Wolpert was saved by the voice save feature.

Strong sexual allegations have been made against a male teacher at a high school in St Catherine, who has been accused of fondling male students.

It is also been alleged that the teacher is a repeat offender.

"He is unstable moving from school to school for similar offences," a concerned person SAID

It is being alleged that the teacher has taken a liking to some boys enrolled at the school and has acted on his desires.

"Him holding down male students to kiss them and him asking male students about their penises," an informant shared with our news team.

Further claims are that the educator arrives at the institution in the wee hours of the morning before school begins so he has time to enjoy himself with the students.

Inappropriate

"He is at school at inappropriate times like 5 a.m. with the boys," the source revealed.

A probe by our news team revealed that the school administration met Wednesday to address the complaints. It is unclear if the participation of the boys is voluntary or involuntary.

Head of The Centre For The Investigation of Sexual Offences and Child Abuse (CISOCA), Deputy Superintendent Veronica Gilzeans, could not be reached as calls to her phone went unanswered.

However, Corporal Terry-Ann Warren of the unit, revealed that information on such cases cannot be disclosed.

"I am not aware of that report and even if I had I couldn't give it to you. CISOCA deals with sexual allegations and child abuse and that in itself will tell you how sensitive such matters are," she said.

We were unable to make contact with any representative of the school's administration.

Dancehall artiste Kiprich was dethroned as the clash king early Friday morning at the 30th anniversary of Sting.

Former Portmore Empire artiste Black Ryno surprised the crowd inside the Jamworld entertainment complex as he left Kiprich almost speechless.Minutes before Ryno's entrance Kiprich seemed confident of winning the US$30,000 up for grabs, urging DJ Mad Cobra to join him onstage for a lyrical showdown.

But it was Ryno that took on the challenge.

"A joke suppmn, is wa dis dem send up here," Kiprich declared as the crowd roared with excitement.

For approx seven minutes Kiprich had the advantage as he freestyled about Ryno and Popcaan's war at last year's Sting referring to Ryno as "Vybz Kartel's beating stick".

However Ryno fired back with a string of rhymes leaving Kiprich dumbstruck as the crowd booed and clapped him off stage.

Kiprich later returned onstage to congratulate his victorious rival who received the cash and a new Sting clash champion belt.

2 Chains left Sting 30 with a sour taste in his mouth after delivering a solid set of American hits that did not connect with the hardcore dance-hall audience. The rapper pulled for hits such as Birthday Song and Bees In The Trap. However there were no fire works in his favor, instead the patrons stood staring at him.

The rapper apparently in shock at the poor response tried to let the patrons know that he was an accomplished rapper. "I got nominated for a Grammy twice, I have two albums , I have a record deal...you seem not to know what the fuck is going on," the rapper said. However the crowd response was the same.

At the end of his allotted time on stage the rapper begged for more time stating that he was not prepared to travel to Jamaica and not perform most of his materials. Some patrons tried to clap him off  stage, however many stood and watched with a dead stare, apparently they didn't want to boo the rapper, simply out of respect.

On the other hand Wycliffe had a remarkable set delving into his pool of classics. He also paid homage to incarcerated artistes Vybz Kartel and Buju Banton and cursed a few Jamaican badwords that had the audience in a frenzy.

The Celebrity Face-Off ended inside a packed Famous Nightclub, Portmore, St Catherine, last Thursday with DI decisively defeating Stacious in the final celebrity matchup.

There was no money at stake in the face-off between Stacious and DI it was all fun and friendly entertainment, but that did not lessen the intensity of their musical battle.

The two took to the stage after a number of performances, among them Kalado, Alkaline impressing the audience and Major Mackerel taking the house down with squeaks, growls, a potshot at Elephant Man and a couple of the songs with which he made his name in the late 1980s to early 1990s.

The final night judges were Cool Face, Scott Wilson and Richie D.

Stacious won her only round of the night in the opening juggling, making a smashing entrance in a Ninja suit which never looked as good on an actor. She started on a spiritual note, with Psalms 23.

Chronixx welcomed the general and Mavado's Messiah hit a good note. However, Stacious' round was soon over, as time was called to her surprise.

DI had gone first in the round, introduced as the uptown downtown gal by host Nuffy, the Rebel singer delight the crowd throughout.

Opening with Peter Tosh's Creation, DI was soon in dub plate mode, showing that she was well stocked for the encounter.

DI warned from early that "a nuh pretty ting tonight" - and it was not.

There was a "sound killer/Stacious dead an DI a de winner" dub, Jah Cure had his say and the rockers continued with Tarrus Riley's Beware on dub. However, there were some microphone problems during her set.

Riley also contributed One Drop on dub and DI closed with the query "Stacious a who you try come dis" to close.

The judges all scored it four points for Stacious to three for DI, with the point for crowd response going to the former.

It proved to be Stacious' only high point for the face-off.

DI started the next round by saying that her opponent was clad in Ninja Man's 'wear an' lef' and, although her first song in the 45 round fell flat, when she had Kartel "sen' fi di army", DI was on a roll. And she closed with the surprise draw of the night, Jimmy Cliff's Harder They Come, which scored.

Stacious replied by reeling out a scroll, proceeding to read names of many men DI was supposed to have had relationships with - all from the entertainment business - tossing the paper aside when the list got too long.

Bounty Killer's Lodge was her opening shot, but despite her best efforts, the round was not to be hers.

All the judges awarded DI six points for that 45 round, plus the point for crowd response. Stacious earning five points on two scorecards and four on the third.

It was in the final dub-for-dub round that DI really took the gloves off.

Stacious went first in the killer round, starting on the wrong footing with a dub of Barrington Levy's Murderer. She would not recover, one of the problems being that the sound quality was not good.

On the other hand, DI was to the point and roused the crowd immediately, living up to her promise "when mi play da one ya, gunshot inna yu marrow."

There were boos for Stacious' Bounty dub. In reply DI had Mackerel snarling "unda deh" in combination with KipRich to score heavily.

Although Stacious noted that it was a 'regular' tune, as "dem song deh play every week", the boos started early. And they continued with her Mavado dub.

After DI's rousing reply, in which the introduction said Stacious was "kinda spacious", Stacious got more boos for her dub, which was supposed to have sent DI "dung inna hole".

At this point Cool Face paused the proceedings to appeal to the engineer one more time for better sound.

DI was in her element, putting a leg up on the console assigned to Stacious and rocking to the beat as the dub sank home. The dub matched her bravado, Macka Diamond's Dye Dye, putting the battle out of contention.

The announcement of the winner of the round and face-off was no surprise, DI scoring seven by all three judges' reckoning, with two awarding Stacious four points and another five.




Word on the streets is that after this article was written, lawyers were rained in immediately. Next time dont call di people dem name. Here goes the article.

Bugle, singjay, has a hit song titled Nuh Compatible, which addresses the issue of his incompatible relationship with a woman. Some persons have being speculating if the song was done for Bugle's babymother, Raine Seville. The speculations started after vulgar promotional pictures of Raine and Konshens hit the Internet. Bugle has neither confirmed nor denied the speculations. Persons can draw their own conclusions based on their understanding of his lyrics.

This song is a refreshing change to so many songs which usually deal with explicit sex exploits or 'having girls in a bundle'. It is in the same category of I-Octane's song Gyal a Gimme Bun, which highlights how he is in an incompatible relationship because he is not spending time with his woman, and getting 'bun' in spite of all his efforts to make her comfortable.

Music is important and can inspire great action and lead to better understanding of issues. In this song, Bugle helps us to understand the importance of compatibility on many factors.

Bugle bemoans that they have personality differences 'You waan go easy, But mi waan go hard'. He is a go-getter with a great drive. Obviously, he is a type A person who is greatly motivated to achieve. She lacks motivation to accomplish things. The differences run deep because she 'hype' while he is conscious and has his eyes on the 'prize'. She perceives life as one party; she was a party girl; she is a groupie always hanging around reggae artistes. She is boisterous and loud while he was not into that.

She wants to spend money recklessly: 'You waan pretty car' and is a shopaholic wanting more shoes than the famous late Imelda Marcos of the Philippines, while he wants to invest in furniture.

They also have serious differences. She was into junk food while he wants 'soul food'. He concludes that it is a useless endeavour to pursue such a relationship. He makes an honest assessment and said, 'No make sense wi try, mi no comfortable, And to how mi si things wi no compatible'.

This girl does not lack qualifications because she was 'educated' but, unfortunately, she was not wise. She was not intelligent. Apparently, he was not well schooled but he is streetwise. He knew his way around because he studied at the 'university of life'.

She believes life owes her a living, 'You waan gain and nothing you never try'. She was lazy. She was a loafer. She was also envious, 'Mi cyaa believe how yo eye dem dry'.

She wanted to live off men 'cause you a wait pon dem fi mine yo' and was sexually loose, 'That's why yo end up wid a bag a man a wine yo' ...

This is not a song that is stereotyping women. It is highlighting differences between men and women. However, it would have been good if Bugle had identified that he, too, had faults and she must have some saving grace. I-Octane's song is a more balanced song on a problem relationship.

Nevertheless, Bugle's song is powerful and should be listened to by persons in relationships. Persons need to analyse honestly their relationship and decide whether it is worth going forward. It is important to have similar attitudes towards financial management, setting goals and working towards achieving them. It is also important to ensure that your partner gets along with in-laws. Sexual looseness and unfaithfulness will cause problems in a relationship and these issues have to be confronted truthfully. These issues will determine whether you are compatible.

Jamaica's latest dance move dubbed 'walk like a dog then c... up and p...' has gone viral on YouTube leaving many viewers upset.

The video which has over 8,500 views, forced several persons to post comments expressing their disappointment about the dance move and the name that it has been given.

Two videos were posted about the dance last week, showcasing a female dancer who goes by the name TC.

In both video clips, which were seemingly captured at a party, the female dancer is seen gyrating her body, before going on 'all fours', and posing like a dog lifting its leg to urinate.

A YouTube user commented under the video, "Dancehall has gone to the dogs."

Another posted, "Jamaica dancehall stop! unno look like eeeeediot. Really gyal, go read a damn book and better your life. Walk like a dog and c... up and p.... Really, that is what you a promote."

Meanwhile, Marcus B wrote, "This is why most people are talking ... about our country. What is really going on with black people,"he said.

In recent times, the entertainment scene has seen several dance moves with weird names. In October, one such dance move called the donkey kick made its debut. The move involves a woman gyrating and then kicking.

The donkey kick is at times combined with another dance called the 'muscle wine'.

Idris Elba put the phone down on his agent when he was asked to play Nelson Mandela.

The 41-year-old actor was so worried about being cast as South Africa's first black president in the biopic 'Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom' he refused to consider the idea and he even tried to pass the role onto Morgan Freeman - who played Mandela in 2009 film 'Invictus'.

Speaking in the January issue of Reader's Digest magazine, he said: "You know, I was really, really sensitive [about the role]. My agent called up to ask if I wanted to play Mandela and I put the phone down on him. I was like, no way. Mandela? Couldn't do it.

"You're asking me to play Mandela, do you think I'm going to play a f***ing Disney Mandela? Don't ask me to do that yeah?

"Then I thought to myself, called him back and said, 'Can I be honest? If it's a grey-haired version of the fist-pumping Mandela, I'm not the actor to bring in. I'm not Morgan, go with Morgan."

Idris - who plays a younger version of Mandela showing his struggle as a younger man against apartheid rule in South Africa - is being tipped for an Oscar for Best Actor for his portrayal of the late Nelson Mandela, who died aged 95 last Thursday (05.12.13) following prolonged lung problems.

Before Tessanne Chin was announced the winner of The Voice tonight, her biggest moment on the show was her performance with five-time Grammy winner Celine Dion.

Celine and Tessanne sang Love Can Move Mountains to thunderous applause.

Following the performance, Tessanne tweeted: "Absolutely speechless Miss @celinedion thank you for making my dream come true. You are even more amazing in person!!! It was an honour."

Tessanne also got another surprise when she was given a car courtesy of Kia Motors, as well as the other finalists, Jacquie Lee and Will Champlin.

The night was also filled with other performances from the top 20 contestants, along with One Republic, Paramore, Ne-Yo and Aloe Blacc.

Following the many performances in the two hour-long show, the contestants lined up on stage to speak to their coaches and await the results.

"A better coach for me I could not find. I thank you everyday for choosing me," Tessanne said to Adam Levine. "It has been a great pleasure, you have been a great, solid guy."

With nerves and emotions very high, Champlin was announced third place winner.

Then said Daly: "The winner of The Voice is Tessanne Chin."

Following the announcement, tears flowed as Tessanne sang a song written for her by One Republic.

The last time Half Way Tree had so much people at once was during Olympics and of course world championship. But following Digicel's decision to send thousands of text messages inviting all their subscribers to watch the show at Half Way Tree, Jamaica now has a new reason to line up in the middle of the town staring a the huge monitors erected facing the transport center.

Tessanne Chin who performed well through the competition not only had the support of her family, but the entire Jamaica and the diaspora.

Several Watch parties supporting the artiste were reportedly held in the USA in support of the Jamaican beauty.

Adam Levine found himself in a tough position going into "The Voice's" last performance show Monday. Two of his singers are in the final three. Both, understandably, are trying to win. What's a coach to do?

In Adam's case, the answer was to throw all his support to Tessanne Chin.

Give the coach credit -- he sure wasn't subtle about it. Since only one of his contestants can win, he went all-in for his Jamaican singer with the reggae roots and the big voice. That's a perfectly justifiable strategy, given how well she performed on Monday, and how she's done all season.

With Sting's 30th anniversary show just around the corner, the Don Gorgon Ninja Man is set to retain his title as one of the greatest clash artistes of all time.

"Dem can sign all who dem waan sign, but mek dem know sey nuh come wid nuh competition because anything cross dis yah border a go dead lyrically. Jamaican flag naah guh a grung,"

ninja-man-sting.jpg
Ninja Man added that State Minister of Entertainment, Damion Crawford, must be commended for supporting dancehall in a corporate way and recognising how lucrative the industry is.

"A dancehall artiste bring home money and spend money pon de yute dem mek it circulate," Ninja articulated.

He advised the government to come to the table with zoning, which will allow venues for lyrics with adult content and for which the 2 a.m. shut-off time will be adjusted.

With Sting dubbed, 'The greatest one night show on earth', Ninja Man is adamant that dancehall music is not dead, but has deteriorated.

"Josey Wales ah still de Colonel, Chaplin a still de Principal, Shabba Ranks a de Emperor, Yellowman and Beenie Man a King. Shabba get two Grammy, Buju get one Grammy and Beenie get one Grammy," he said.

Questioned further as to his views on dancehall being 'locked up in jail', Ninja Man stated that no one artiste is responsible for the genre.

"No one artiste cyan mek dancehall guh a grung! Every six months a new artiste buss and prepare fi mek him name pon Sting. Dis year every artiste a try win US $30,000 fi kill KipRich."

Returning his focus to his impending Sting clash, Ninja Man stated that this year's show will be a celebration.

"Sting dis year have supn fi young people and fi ol' people. The venue a go secure. It's going to be a celebration with with lyrics, entertainment and enjoyment. Di ol' balladeer dem, me, Cat and Bailey dem. Mi not even tell nobody whe mi a come wid dis year. Just come out fi Sting," Ninja Man said.

Already on this year's line up for Sting are 2 Chainz and Wycliffe Jean. There are also talks about Busta Rhymes being considered for booking.

While Vybz Kartel lingers behind bars, ex Gaza members are busy mending their bridges. Popcaan is said to have apologized to Bounty Killer earlier this year and sent the artiste a voice note for his birthday. Now Ex-Gaza member, dancehall star Jah Vinci, has teamed up with ex-Alliance member Bridgez to do a combination single called 'Dream Love' on the Diamond Music Empire label.

"We voiced the song three months ago. Jah Vinci is simply brilliant, he went into the studio, heard the rhythm and wrote the song on the spot. He wrote everything; he simply freestyled the song from start to finish, telling me what to sing and how to sing it. He is simply incredible," Bridgez said, adding that the experience was a bit intimidating given that Jah Vinci is such a great singer.

"It was a bit of a challenge because his voice is so strong, but I was able to dig deep and do my best. He really inspired me to do some things, and brought things out of me that I didn't know I could do," she revealed.

jah-vinci-photo-1.jpg
Jah Vinci enjoyed being the creative force behind the combination single. "I really enjoyed working with Bridgez, she is a really good singer whom I expect great things from in the future. I have been getting a lot of positive responses to the song from fans on Facebook and Twitter. DJ Wayne played it the other day, and several Sunciti Radio disc jocks have been playing it, so it's a good look," Jah Vinci said.

As 2013 draws to a close, the former 'Portmore Empire' star is determined to capture a bigger chunk of the marketplace. He released two videos recently, My Love on the 'Party Block' rhythm on the Hapilos Entertainment Label, and Mama Don't Cry, produced by brothers, Blade and Taz of Social Yaad on their 'Sacred Heart' rhythm.

Fans can expect a vast array of Jah Vinci's music from various renowned producers including Chimney Records, Hapilos Ent., So Unique Records and CrO2 (ZJ Chrome). Also a catalogue of other music videos is set to be released soon.Jah Vinci also recorded with Vybz Kartel's former rival Ma

Snoop (formerly Snoop Dogg) is nominated for Reincarnated. He says his conversion to Rastafari was inspired by a visit to Jamaica in 2012 when he experienced a spiritual awakening while meeting with a group of Rastafarian elders.

Sly and Robbie and the Jam Masters' Reggae Connection, Sizzla's The Messiah, One Love, One Life by Beres Hammond and Ziggy Marley in Concert are the other nominees for Best Reggae Album.

Steffens formed A Reggae Committee and served as its chairman until 2011. He has openly criticised the selection process, claiming that judges favour albums produced by the Marley family.

snoop-lion-photo-5.jpg

The Marleys have dominated the category since it was established in 1985. Brothers Ziggy, Damian and Stephen have won Grammys as solo acts, while Ziggy and Steve won multiple times as members of Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers.

Steffens, considered an authority on Bob Marley and the Wailers, believes this year's nominees maintain the trend of mediocre selections.

"The nominations this year fit into the pocket of name recognition more than anything else, regardless of sales or actual quality," he said.

Reincarnated, with sales of over 80,000 units, is the best selling reggae album for 2013. The year has been poor in terms of sales by Jamaican artistes, with American reggae bands performing better on the Billboard charts.

The Snoop set attracted mass coverage from mainstream media in the United States, due to his conversion from 'gangsta rap' icon to cultural artiste.

The lanky rapper (real name Calvin Broadus) is one of the godfathers of gangsta rap which emerged out of southern California's impoverished communities in the early 1990s with hardcore rap acts such as NWA and Ice T.

The 56th annual Grammy Awards is scheduled for the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles on January 26.

With just one performance left until a contestant is crowned the winner of The Voice, supporters of Tessanne Chin were confident as they awaited the names of the three contestants who would advance to the finals.

Tessanne Chin stood out during last night's performance show, battling through tears with a performance that coach Adam Levine described as the best performance in the history of the show.

Last week, Tessanne wowed fans with renditions of Bob Marley's Redemption Song and Katy Perry's Unconditionally, which saw the songs moving up the iTunes chart. After a world-class performance of Simon and Garfunkel's Bridge Over Troubled Water last night, the song rapidly climbed the iTunes chart and settled comfortably in the number one position. This automatically meant that Tessanne's votes were multiplied by five this week.

Questioned as to what moving on to the finals would mean to her, Tessanne declared it would be an honour.

"To have come this far is an honour in itself. To move forward would be a way for me to thank you for all your support. It would be a chance to change my life. I love you," she said.

With a record deal with Universal Music Group and US$100,000 (J$10m) within grasp, fans breathed a sigh of relief as host Carson Daly announced that Tessanne Chin was the first person moving into the finals and was just one week away from being declared 'The Voice'.

Joining Tessanne in the finals are Jacquie Lee from Team Christina and Will Champlin from Team Adam.




L.A Lewis challenges Bounty Killer and Mad Cobra

la-lewis-photo-1.jpg
LA Lewis is not taking his defeat to Tanto Blacks during the Magnum All-Star Celebrity $1,000,000 Face-Off last Thursday night lightly.

Turning his anger towards Mad Cobra and Bounty Killer, to declare war.

The first of Lewis' grouses has come because of a Bounty Killer dub unleashed by Tanto Blacks during the clash.

According to Lewis, he considers Bounty a friend, and a friend should not have given, "a clown, dub fi shoot mi. A clown him clown mi out."

The 'violation' does not mean an immediate war though as the 'Illuminati' (again self- proclaimed) is giving Bounty 88 hours to make a public apology.

"Bounty knows what 88 hours mean, double infinity. Tell Bounty don't ramp wid mi!"

According to LA Lewis, he has long told Bounty Killer he is the star of the night, "and me a di star a di day."

With that in mind, LA Lewis says Killer must be careful he (LA Lewis) doesn't "start wear piece a black an' start run di day an' di night".

"Him wave him rights fi call LA Lewis him friend," Lewis declared.

While L.A. Lewis has extended a time frame for quashing the possibility of a beef with Bounty, Mad Cobra is getting no such favours.

"Mad Cobra fi know seh a Gaza run Portmore and him run a quarter acre. Him run a quarter acre and call it Brixton," said Lewis.

His anger at Mad Cobra has come because, according to Lewis, the Flex singer had his fans boo him to ensure he lost the clash.

"Before mi start dem a boo," said Lewis.

"Cobra feel like seh him could a bring een im crew fi boo mi an' mi wouldn't know?" Lewis asked.

mad-cobra-photo-1.jpg

"Him fi memba seh, a me seh Gaza," said Lewis, going on to explain that Mad Cobra was angry that LA Lewis had done songs dissing him. According to Lewis, Cobra ran away from the impending clash, and, instead, chose underhanded methods of seeking revenge.

While angered at the two artistes because of the clash, Lewis says he has nothing against Tanto Blacks, who unceremoniously dispatched his efforts last Thursday.

"Mi big up Tanto Blacks on him victory. Is a trying yute 'an' mi nuh have nutt'n 'gainst him."

bounty-killer-look-caribtorch.jpg
Turning his anger back to Bounty, Lewis pointed out that he was more than fair in giving the 88-hour ultimatum.

"If war start, nubaddy cyaa seh LA Lewis cause trouble. Mi gi him whole heap a time fi apologise."

Sizzla Kalonji and Kalonji Muzik send condolence to the Mandela Family and the People of South Africa on the heels of his first Grammy Nomination for 70th album, The Messiah. "We express our deep grief loosing our beloved President the Honorable Nelson Mandela. It is only right that we send our condolence to his family and Africa," says Sizzla.

With respect and honor from Judgment Yard he continues, "We love the President as our African Father, more over for standing up for our motherland Africa and all its brothers and sisters. Rest In Peace, our freedom fighter, we love you. Free Africa now, this moment, this instance."

Mr. Homer Harris, head of Sizzla's management team sends this message, "Condolence to the Mandela Family. The Reggae Community has been singing songs to dismantle apartheid since the 70's, 80's till now. We must not forget about our Giants like Nelson Mandela and Steve Biko. The Reggae community must continue to chant messages across the globe to fight against oppression all over the world."

While the world celebrates the life of one of our greatest Giants, the same weekend our team received news that Sizzla had been nominated for his first Grammy for his 70th album, The Messiah. So while we honor and celebrate Madiba Mandela, we honor and celebrate the achievements of Sizzla Kalonji who has used his music as a pedastol to spread messages of empowerment, unity, love, upliftment, justice, and peace.

Sizzla's music has represented Africa and the reconnection of the African Diaspora to Africa since 1995 through the teachings of Ras Tafari, Marcus Garvey, Nelson Mandela, and other leaders. The Messiah is a special album with Sizzla Kalonji as the executive producer.

"Sizzla has worked hard over the years and is well deserving of a Grammy considering all the albums that he has released. This album, The Messiah is one of Sizzla's personal projects produced by Richard "Breadback" Bramwell and released through Kalonji Muzik and VP Records, expresses Mr. Homer Harris.

Harris continues, "We want to thank Sizzla's team and fan base for all of the support. VP Records has been very instrumental and supportive in making this album a success and receiving this Grammy nomination, so we thank the staff of VP Records under the leadership Chris Chin. We thank the publicists Brian Greenspoon, Tiffany Mea, and Olimatta Taal. We highly appreciate the support and love for this album around the world."

The Turkish FA (TFF) are planning to summon the Galatasaray pair to appear before the Professional Football Discipline Committee because they had not sought prior permission to display their messages.

It is in contrast to England where games this weekend have been preceded by a minute of applause in celebration of Mandela's life and his role in ending apartheid in South Africa and transforming the international profile of Africa.

Plans to discipline Drogba and Eboue are certain to attract criticism and fuel debate in Turkey, where the TFF are trying to keep political imagery out of football as directed by FIFA, although it has proved increasingly difficult in a football-crazy nation beset by political tension.

Players from Fethiyespor were recently charged by the disciplinary committee for wearing t-shirts reading: 'Great Ataturk' in homage of the founder of modern Turkey.

After temporarily ditching hardcore lyrics for songs about unity and anti-violence, Snoop Dogg has seen his Reggae efforts rewarded by The Recording Academy as he was named one of five finalists on Friday for the Best Reggae Album award at next year's Grammy Awards.

The artist, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, is being nominated for his album, Reincarnated, released in April while using the Snoop Lion moniker. The album, which features collaborations with Mavado, Popcaan, Mr. Vegas, Drake and Miley Cyrus amongst others, was the best-selling Reggae album in the United States this year, with over 21,000 copies sold in its debut week and, to date, has sold well over 50,000 copies there.

Despite criticism from legendary Jamaican artists such as Bunny Wailer and Lady Saw, the album received a number of positive reviews. However, the Snoop Lion act appears to have been cut, at least for the time being, as he recently changed his name again, to Snoopzilla.

sizzla-photo-3.jpg

Another artist receiving his first Reggae Grammy nod is Sizzla Kalonji for his album, The Messiah. Having recorded over 70 albums in his career, it is the first chance he will have a music's most prestigious award. The Messiah features 15 tracks, including Chant Dem Down and Psalm 121.

Beres Hammond is also amongst the finalists, securing his first nomination since 2002 with his One Love, One Life double album, featuring the hit single, In My Arms.

The other two contenders for the Best Reggae Album award are four-time winner, Ziggy Marley for Ziggy Marley in Concert and Sly and Robbie and the Jam Masters with Reggae Connection.

Nelson Mandella Dead at age 95

Nelson Mandela, who became one of the world's most beloved statesmen and a colossus of the 20th century when he emerged from 27 years in prison to negotiate an end to white minority rule in South Africa, has died. He was 95.

South African president Jacob Zuma made the announcement at a news conference late Thursday, saying, "We've lost our greatest son."

This is a day Richard Lapchick hoped would never come, as the loss of Nelson Mandela is impossible to measure. Story

The signs of Nelson Mandela's epic life, hope and progress can be seen everywhere in Soweto, Rick Reilly writes. Story
 
Mandela's death closed the final chapter in South Africa's struggle to cast off apartheid, leaving the world with indelible memories of a man of astonishing grace and good humor. Rock concerts celebrated his birthday. Hollywood stars glorified him on screen. And his regal bearing, graying hair and raspy voice made him instantly recognizable across the globe.

President Barack Obama said the world lost an influential, courageous and "profoundly good" man with Mandela's death.

Speaking from the White House, Obama said Mandela "no longer belongs to us. He belongs to the ages."

"I am one of the countless millions who drew inspiration from Nelson Mandela's life," he continued. "And like so many around the globe, I cannot fully imagine my own life without the example that Nelson Mandela set."

Obama met with Mandela's family earlier this year when he visited South Africa. But he did not meet with the ailing leader, who was hospitalized throughout the U.S. president's visit.

As South Africa's first black president, the ex-boxer, lawyer and prisoner No. 46664 paved the way to racial reconciliation with well-chosen gestures of forgiveness. He lunched with the prosecutor who sent him to jail, sang the apartheid-era Afrikaans anthem at his inauguration, and traveled hundreds of miles to have tea with the widow of Hendrik Verwoerd, the prime minister at the time he was imprisoned.

His most memorable gesture came when he strode onto the field before the 1995 Rugby World Cup final in Johannesburg. When he came on the field in South African colors to congratulate the victorious South African team, he brought the overwhelmingly white crowd of 63,000 to its feet, chanting "Nelson! Nelson! Nelson!"

For he had marched headlong into a bastion of white Afrikanerdom -- the temple of South African rugby -- and made its followers feel they belonged in the new South Africa.

Mandela also helped seal his country's bid to become the first in Africa to host a World Cup.

Tragically, he kept a low profile during the 2010 World Cup after his great-granddaughter was killed in an automobile accident following a concert to kick off the opening night of the event.

After much anticipation and speculation that he would remain absent as his family continued to mourn the 13-year-old Zenani Mandela, he attended the World Cup's closing ceremonies amid a thunderous mix of vuvuzelas and roars from the crowd.

Nelson Mandela and Graca Machel greet fans before the final of the 2010 Soccer World Cup.

At the same time, Mandela was himself uneasy with the idea of being an icon and he did not escape criticism as an individual and a politician, though much of it was muted by his status as a unassailable symbol of decency and principle. As president, he failed to craft a lasting formula for overcoming South Africa's biggest post-apartheid problems, including one of the world's widest gaps between rich and poor. In his writings, he pondered the heavy cost to his family of his decision to devote himself to the struggle against apartheid.

He had been convicted of treason and sentenced to life imprisonment in 1964 for leading a campaign of sabotage against the government, and sent to the notorious Robben Island prison. It was forbidden to quote him or publish his photo, yet he and other jailed members of his banned African National Congress were able to smuggle out messages of guidance to the anti-apartheid crusade.

As time passed -- the "long, lonely, wasted years," as he termed them -- international awareness of apartheid grew more acute. By the time Mandela turned 70 he was the world's most famous political prisoner. Such were his mental reserves, though, that he turned down conditional offers of freedom from his apartheid jailers and even found a way to benefit from confinement.

"People tend to measure themselves by external accomplishments, but jail allows a person to focus on internal ones; such as honesty, sincerity, simplicity, humility, generosity and an absence of variety," Mandela says in one of the many quotations displayed at the Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg. "You learn to look into yourself."

Thousands died, were tortured and were imprisoned in the decades-long struggle against apartheid, so that when Mandela emerged from prison in 1990, smiling and waving to the crowds, the image became an international icon of freedom to rival the fall of the Berlin Wall.

South Africa's white rulers had portrayed Mandela as the spearhead of a communist revolution and insisted that black majority rule would usher in the chaos and bloodshed that had beset many other African countries as they shook off colonial rule.

Yet since apartheid ended, South Africa has held four parliamentary elections and elected three presidents, always peacefully, setting an example on a continent where democracy is still new and fragile. Its democracy has flaws, and the African National Congress has struggled to deliver on promises. It is a front-runner ahead of 2014 elections, but corruption scandals and other missteps have undercut some of the promise of earlier years.

I am one of the countless millions who drew inspiration from Nelson Mandela's life. And like so many around the globe, I cannot fully imagine my own life without the example that Nelson Mandela set.
"
-- President Barack Obama 

"We have confounded the prophets of doom and achieved a bloodless revolution. We have restored the dignity of every South African," Mandela said shortly before stepping down as president in 1999 at age 80.

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela was born July 18, 1918, the son of a tribal chief in Transkei, one of the future "Bantustans," independent republics set up by the apartheid regime to cement the separation of whites and blacks.

Mandela's royal upbringing gave him a dignified bearing that became his hallmark. Many South Africans of all races would later call him by his clan name, Madiba, as a token of affection and respect.

Growing up at a time when virtually all of Africa was under European colonial rule, Mandela attended Methodist schools before being admitted to the black University of Fort Hare in 1938. He was expelled two years later for his role in a student strike.

He moved to Johannesburg and worked as a policeman at a gold mine, boxed as an amateur heavyweight and studied law.

His first wife, nurse Evelyn Mase, bore him four children. A daughter died in infancy, a son was killed in a car crash in 1970 and another son died of AIDS in 2005. The couple divorced in 1957, and Evelyn died in 2004.

Mandela began his rise through the anti-apartheid movement in 1944, when he helped form the ANC Youth League.

He organized a campaign in 1952 to encourage defiance of laws that segregated schools, marriage, housing and job opportunities. The government retaliated by barring him from attending gatherings and leaving Johannesburg, the first of many "banning" orders he was to endure.

After a two-day nationwide strike was crushed by police, he and a small group of ANC colleagues decided on military action and Mandela pushed to form the movement's guerrilla wing, Umkhonto we Sizwe, or Spear of the Nation.

He was arrested in 1962 and sentenced to five years' hard labor for leaving the country illegally and inciting blacks to strike.

A year later, police uncovered the ANC's underground headquarters on a farm near Johannesburg and seized documents outlining plans for a guerrilla campaign. At a time when African colonies were one by one becoming independent states, Mandela and seven co-defendants were sentenced to life in prison.

Nelson Mandela made a statement about reconciliation by wearing a Springboks jersey and congratulating captain Francois Pienaar after the team won the 1995 Rugby World Cup.

"I do not deny that I planned sabotage," he told the court. "I did not plan it in a spirit of recklessness, nor because I have any love of violence. I planned it as a result of a calm and sober assessment of the political situation that had arisen after years of tyranny, exploitation and oppression of my people by whites."

The ANC's armed wing was later involved in a series of high-profile bombings that killed civilians, and many in the white minority viewed the imprisoned Mandela as a terrorist. Up until 2008, when President George W. Bush rescinded the order, he could not visit the U.S. without a waiver from the secretary of state certifying he was not a terrorist.

From the late 1960s South Africa gradually became an international pariah, expelled from the U.N., banned from the Olympics. In 1973 Mandela refused a government offer of release on condition he agree to confine himself to his native Transkei. In 1982 he and other top ANC inmates were moved off Robben Island to a mainland prison. Three years later Mandela was again offered freedom, and again he refused unless segregation laws were scrapped and the government negotiated with the ANC.

In 1989, F.W. de Klerk became president. This Afrikaner recognized the end was near for white-ruled South Africa. Mandela, for his part, continued, even in his last weeks in prison, to advocate nationalizing banks, mines and monopoly industries -- a stance that frightened the white business community.

But talks were already underway, with Mandela being spirited out of prison to meet a white Cabinet minister.

On Feb. 11, 1990, inmate No. 46664, who had once been refused permission to leave prison for his mother's funeral, went free and walked hand-in-hand with Winnie, his wife. Blacks across the country erupted in joy -- as did many whites.

Mandela took charge of the ANC, shared the 1993 Nobel Peace Prize with de Klerk and was elected president by a landslide in South Africa's first all-race election the following year.

At his inauguration, he stood hand on heart, saluted by white generals as he sang along to two anthems: the apartheid-era Afrikaans "Die Stem," ("The Voice") and the African "Nkosi Sikelel' iAfrika" ("Lord Bless Africa").

To black South Africans expecting a speedy new deal, Mandela pleaded for patience. The millions denied proper housing, schools and health care under apartheid had expected the revolution to deliver quick fixes, but Mandela recognized he had to embrace free market policies to keep white-dominated big business on his side and attract foreign investment.

For all his saintly image, Mandela had an autocratic streak. When black journalists mildly criticized his government, he painted them as stooges of the whites who owned the media. Whites with complaints were dismissed as pining for their old privileges.

He denounced Bush as a warmonger and the U.S. having "committed unspeakable atrocities in the world." When asked about his closeness to Fidel Castro and Moammar Gadhafi despite human rights violations in the countries they ruled, Mandela explained that he wouldn't forsake supporters of the anti-apartheid struggle.

With his fellow Nobelist, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, he set up the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, which allowed human rights offenders of all races to admit their crimes publicly in return for lenient treatment. It proved to be a kind of national therapy that would become a model for other countries emerging from prolonged strife.

He increasingly left the governing to deputy president Thabo Mbeki, who took over when Mandela's term ended in June 1999 and he declined to seek another -- a rarity among African presidents.

"I must step down while there are one or two people who admire me," Mandela joked at the time. When he retired, he said he was going to stand on a street with a sign that said: "Unemployed, no job. New wife and large family to support."

His marriage to Winnie had fallen apart after his release and he was now married to Graca Machel, the widowed former first lady of neighboring Mozambique.

He is survived by Machel, his daughter Makaziwe by his first marriage, and daughters Zindzi and Zenani by his second.




Vybz Kartel Jesus painting angers Christians

vybz-kartel-photo-12.jpg

An image that is currently being circulated online of dancehall artiste Vybz Kartel being depicted as a god has sparked outrage and mix reactions from viewers on social media.

The painting shows a fully tattooed, light-skinned Kartel sitting high on a throne made of gold in the clouds. In the image, he is seen holding a staff in his right hand and contorting his fingers to the 'empire' sign on the other.

Kartel can also be seen in the painting dressed in a pink toga, purple cap with the letter 'W' and matching Clarks, while having his chin caressed by a topless woman on bended knees staring adoringly at him as he looks on.

But unlike the doting woman in the painting, some viewers were not amused while others stated that it was a ploy by the artiste to remain relevant during his incarceration.

"That photo is just so wrong in so many ways!" a Facebook viewer commented.

Another stated, "And he draws out people yet again, when unuh gonna learn seh him do this just for the attention! Smart man!"

The painting's creator has also come under scrutiny by viewers, with many accusing him of idolizing the artiste.

"The painting is about his ego and the image he was portraying to the world," he said.

When asked what was the inspiration behind the picture, Robinson said "The inspiration was how the media portrayed Kartel at the time."

He also said, "The painting is a recreation of 'Ingres's - Jupiter and Thetis'. It illustrates Jamaica's media portrayal of Vybz Kartel as a larger than life figure in dancehall. They placed him on that throne and dancehall society at his feet and blamed him for the behaviour of youths."

Robinson also sought to dismiss claims that the painting was published by Kartel or members of his camp as a ploy to stir up controversy to keep the artiste relevant during his incarceration.

"Kartel has nothing to do with the picture, this was created before he was imprisoned, he knows nothing about the painting and has probably never seen it."

The picture first surfaced on this Free Vybz Kartel page on facebook.





Blood found in Vybz Kartels house not Lizard's?

Government forensic analyst Sharon Bryson testified today in Vybz Kartel's murder trial that blood found at the entertainer's house was in fact human but that a comparative DNA test did not return a match to Clive 'Lizard' Williams.

Earlier in the trial, an investigator testified that he found what appeared to be bloodstains at the entertainer's home in Havendale, St Andrew where Williams was allegedly beaten before being killed on August 16, 2011 over two missing guns.

The analyst told the court that the sample was first examined for blood followed by DNA analysis, and that the test returned a positive result for blood of human origin, belonging to a male.

The forensic analyst said because there was no body, swabs were taken from an uncle of the alleged deceased, however the results did not return a match with the sample taken from Kartel's house.

Kartel is jointly charged with fellow entertainer Shawn Storm, Kahira Jones, Shane Williams and Andre St John for William's murder.

The principal of a high school in St Catherine had to seek medical attention yesterday after being attacked by a male student who punched him repeatedly.

Reports are that about 12:30 p.m., the principal saw a fifth-form student with a hoody on along with an earring. The boy was called and he was said to have refused going to the principal.

He was subsequently held and was being led to the office, when he reportedly started to rain blows on the principal who fell.

The enraged attacker continued punching him while he was on the ground. He ended up suffering swollen lips, a cut over his right eye, forehead and bruises all over.

Teachers had to rescue principal and washed his bloody face in the school's bathroom.

The police were called in and the student was taken into custody.

Called the Bog Walk Police Station, personnel acknowledged the incident, but refused to give details.

Meanwhile, calls to the school went unanswered.

Tessanne Chin Gone to Semi Finals !!

tessanne-chin-photo-1.jpg
Maintaining the momentum of two spectacular performances on last night's show, Tessanne Chin supporters once again rallied around the artiste to secure her a spot in the semi-finals of The Voice.

Adam Levine, who had pulled off a 'Houdini' act by having all his contestants saved from elimination in consecutive weeks, was hoping for that trend to continue into the semi-finals ... And, it did.

Last night, Blake Shelton admitted that Tessanne was a world-class vocalist and voters certainly agreed. With both of her performances of the previous night making it into the Top 20 on the iTunes chart, the TessTop4 parties held across the Corporate Area certainly paid off.

After announcing that her family's support meant everything to her, Tessanne breathed a sigh of relief as it was announced that she was guaranteed a spot in the semis.

"Their support has meant everything. They believed in me when I didn't believe in myself. I want to thank them for always believing in me," Tessanne said.

Earlier in the night, in the spirit of the Yuletide season, Kelly Clarkson opened the show with her latest Christmas single Underneath the Tree, and prepared the contestants for the inevitable voting results. Tessanne also joined contestants Matthew Schuler and Jacquie Lee earlier in the night for a rendition of You Got The Love by Florence Welch. She also joined all the contestants for a spectacular rendition of O Holy Night.

With only five contestants guaranteed a spot in the semi-finals, and, with this being the last opportunity for fans to instantly save one of the contestants via tweeting, it came as a shock to many that fan-favourite Matthew Schuler was once again at the bottom.

Unfortunately, he was not as lucky the second time around, and was eliminated.

Joining Tessanne in the semi-finals are Cole Vosbury from Team Blake, Jacquie Lee from Team Christina and Will Champlin and James Wolpert from Team Adam. Wolpert was saved by the voice save feature.

Strong sexual allegations have been made against a male teacher at a high school in St Catherine, who has been accused of fondling male students.

It is also been alleged that the teacher is a repeat offender.

"He is unstable moving from school to school for similar offences," a concerned person SAID

It is being alleged that the teacher has taken a liking to some boys enrolled at the school and has acted on his desires.

"Him holding down male students to kiss them and him asking male students about their penises," an informant shared with our news team.

Further claims are that the educator arrives at the institution in the wee hours of the morning before school begins so he has time to enjoy himself with the students.

Inappropriate

"He is at school at inappropriate times like 5 a.m. with the boys," the source revealed.

A probe by our news team revealed that the school administration met Wednesday to address the complaints. It is unclear if the participation of the boys is voluntary or involuntary.

Head of The Centre For The Investigation of Sexual Offences and Child Abuse (CISOCA), Deputy Superintendent Veronica Gilzeans, could not be reached as calls to her phone went unanswered.

However, Corporal Terry-Ann Warren of the unit, revealed that information on such cases cannot be disclosed.

"I am not aware of that report and even if I had I couldn't give it to you. CISOCA deals with sexual allegations and child abuse and that in itself will tell you how sensitive such matters are," she said.

We were unable to make contact with any representative of the school's administration.

Dancehall artiste Kiprich was dethroned as the clash king early Friday morning at the 30th anniversary of Sting.

Former Portmore Empire artiste Black Ryno surprised the crowd inside the Jamworld entertainment complex as he left Kiprich almost speechless.Minutes before Ryno's entrance Kiprich seemed confident of winning the US$30,000 up for grabs, urging DJ Mad Cobra to join him onstage for a lyrical showdown.

But it was Ryno that took on the challenge.

"A joke suppmn, is wa dis dem send up here," Kiprich declared as the crowd roared with excitement.

For approx seven minutes Kiprich had the advantage as he freestyled about Ryno and Popcaan's war at last year's Sting referring to Ryno as "Vybz Kartel's beating stick".

However Ryno fired back with a string of rhymes leaving Kiprich dumbstruck as the crowd booed and clapped him off stage.

Kiprich later returned onstage to congratulate his victorious rival who received the cash and a new Sting clash champion belt.

2 Chains left Sting 30 with a sour taste in his mouth after delivering a solid set of American hits that did not connect with the hardcore dance-hall audience. The rapper pulled for hits such as Birthday Song and Bees In The Trap. However there were no fire works in his favor, instead the patrons stood staring at him.

The rapper apparently in shock at the poor response tried to let the patrons know that he was an accomplished rapper. "I got nominated for a Grammy twice, I have two albums , I have a record deal...you seem not to know what the fuck is going on," the rapper said. However the crowd response was the same.

At the end of his allotted time on stage the rapper begged for more time stating that he was not prepared to travel to Jamaica and not perform most of his materials. Some patrons tried to clap him off  stage, however many stood and watched with a dead stare, apparently they didn't want to boo the rapper, simply out of respect.

On the other hand Wycliffe had a remarkable set delving into his pool of classics. He also paid homage to incarcerated artistes Vybz Kartel and Buju Banton and cursed a few Jamaican badwords that had the audience in a frenzy.

Danielle DI beats Stacious in selecting Clash

danielle-di.jpg

The Celebrity Face-Off ended inside a packed Famous Nightclub, Portmore, St Catherine, last Thursday with DI decisively defeating Stacious in the final celebrity matchup.

There was no money at stake in the face-off between Stacious and DI it was all fun and friendly entertainment, but that did not lessen the intensity of their musical battle.

The two took to the stage after a number of performances, among them Kalado, Alkaline impressing the audience and Major Mackerel taking the house down with squeaks, growls, a potshot at Elephant Man and a couple of the songs with which he made his name in the late 1980s to early 1990s.

The final night judges were Cool Face, Scott Wilson and Richie D.

stacious-photo-1.jpg

Stacious won her only round of the night in the opening juggling, making a smashing entrance in a Ninja suit which never looked as good on an actor. She started on a spiritual note, with Psalms 23.

Chronixx welcomed the general and Mavado's Messiah hit a good note. However, Stacious' round was soon over, as time was called to her surprise.

DI had gone first in the round, introduced as the uptown downtown gal by host Nuffy, the Rebel singer delight the crowd throughout.

Opening with Peter Tosh's Creation, DI was soon in dub plate mode, showing that she was well stocked for the encounter.

DI warned from early that "a nuh pretty ting tonight" - and it was not.

There was a "sound killer/Stacious dead an DI a de winner" dub, Jah Cure had his say and the rockers continued with Tarrus Riley's Beware on dub. However, there were some microphone problems during her set.

Riley also contributed One Drop on dub and DI closed with the query "Stacious a who you try come dis" to close.

The judges all scored it four points for Stacious to three for DI, with the point for crowd response going to the former.

It proved to be Stacious' only high point for the face-off.

DI started the next round by saying that her opponent was clad in Ninja Man's 'wear an' lef' and, although her first song in the 45 round fell flat, when she had Kartel "sen' fi di army", DI was on a roll. And she closed with the surprise draw of the night, Jimmy Cliff's Harder They Come, which scored.

Stacious replied by reeling out a scroll, proceeding to read names of many men DI was supposed to have had relationships with - all from the entertainment business - tossing the paper aside when the list got too long.

Bounty Killer's Lodge was her opening shot, but despite her best efforts, the round was not to be hers.

All the judges awarded DI six points for that 45 round, plus the point for crowd response. Stacious earning five points on two scorecards and four on the third.

It was in the final dub-for-dub round that DI really took the gloves off.

Stacious went first in the killer round, starting on the wrong footing with a dub of Barrington Levy's Murderer. She would not recover, one of the problems being that the sound quality was not good.

On the other hand, DI was to the point and roused the crowd immediately, living up to her promise "when mi play da one ya, gunshot inna yu marrow."

There were boos for Stacious' Bounty dub. In reply DI had Mackerel snarling "unda deh" in combination with KipRich to score heavily.

Although Stacious noted that it was a 'regular' tune, as "dem song deh play every week", the boos started early. And they continued with her Mavado dub.

After DI's rousing reply, in which the introduction said Stacious was "kinda spacious", Stacious got more boos for her dub, which was supposed to have sent DI "dung inna hole".

At this point Cool Face paused the proceedings to appeal to the engineer one more time for better sound.

DI was in her element, putting a leg up on the console assigned to Stacious and rocking to the beat as the dub sank home. The dub matched her bravado, Macka Diamond's Dye Dye, putting the battle out of contention.

The announcement of the winner of the round and face-off was no surprise, DI scoring seven by all three judges' reckoning, with two awarding Stacious four points and another five.




Word on the streets is that after this article was written, lawyers were rained in immediately. Next time dont call di people dem name. Here goes the article.

Bugle, singjay, has a hit song titled Nuh Compatible, which addresses the issue of his incompatible relationship with a woman. Some persons have being speculating if the song was done for Bugle's babymother, Raine Seville. The speculations started after vulgar promotional pictures of Raine and Konshens hit the Internet. Bugle has neither confirmed nor denied the speculations. Persons can draw their own conclusions based on their understanding of his lyrics.

This song is a refreshing change to so many songs which usually deal with explicit sex exploits or 'having girls in a bundle'. It is in the same category of I-Octane's song Gyal a Gimme Bun, which highlights how he is in an incompatible relationship because he is not spending time with his woman, and getting 'bun' in spite of all his efforts to make her comfortable.

Music is important and can inspire great action and lead to better understanding of issues. In this song, Bugle helps us to understand the importance of compatibility on many factors.

Bugle bemoans that they have personality differences 'You waan go easy, But mi waan go hard'. He is a go-getter with a great drive. Obviously, he is a type A person who is greatly motivated to achieve. She lacks motivation to accomplish things. The differences run deep because she 'hype' while he is conscious and has his eyes on the 'prize'. She perceives life as one party; she was a party girl; she is a groupie always hanging around reggae artistes. She is boisterous and loud while he was not into that.

She wants to spend money recklessly: 'You waan pretty car' and is a shopaholic wanting more shoes than the famous late Imelda Marcos of the Philippines, while he wants to invest in furniture.

They also have serious differences. She was into junk food while he wants 'soul food'. He concludes that it is a useless endeavour to pursue such a relationship. He makes an honest assessment and said, 'No make sense wi try, mi no comfortable, And to how mi si things wi no compatible'.

This girl does not lack qualifications because she was 'educated' but, unfortunately, she was not wise. She was not intelligent. Apparently, he was not well schooled but he is streetwise. He knew his way around because he studied at the 'university of life'.

She believes life owes her a living, 'You waan gain and nothing you never try'. She was lazy. She was a loafer. She was also envious, 'Mi cyaa believe how yo eye dem dry'.

She wanted to live off men 'cause you a wait pon dem fi mine yo' and was sexually loose, 'That's why yo end up wid a bag a man a wine yo' ...

This is not a song that is stereotyping women. It is highlighting differences between men and women. However, it would have been good if Bugle had identified that he, too, had faults and she must have some saving grace. I-Octane's song is a more balanced song on a problem relationship.

Nevertheless, Bugle's song is powerful and should be listened to by persons in relationships. Persons need to analyse honestly their relationship and decide whether it is worth going forward. It is important to have similar attitudes towards financial management, setting goals and working towards achieving them. It is also important to ensure that your partner gets along with in-laws. Sexual looseness and unfaithfulness will cause problems in a relationship and these issues have to be confronted truthfully. These issues will determine whether you are compatible.

Jamaica's latest dance move dubbed 'walk like a dog then c... up and p...' has gone viral on YouTube leaving many viewers upset.

The video which has over 8,500 views, forced several persons to post comments expressing their disappointment about the dance move and the name that it has been given.

Two videos were posted about the dance last week, showcasing a female dancer who goes by the name TC.

In both video clips, which were seemingly captured at a party, the female dancer is seen gyrating her body, before going on 'all fours', and posing like a dog lifting its leg to urinate.

A YouTube user commented under the video, "Dancehall has gone to the dogs."

Another posted, "Jamaica dancehall stop! unno look like eeeeediot. Really gyal, go read a damn book and better your life. Walk like a dog and c... up and p.... Really, that is what you a promote."

Meanwhile, Marcus B wrote, "This is why most people are talking ... about our country. What is really going on with black people,"he said.

In recent times, the entertainment scene has seen several dance moves with weird names. In October, one such dance move called the donkey kick made its debut. The move involves a woman gyrating and then kicking.

The donkey kick is at times combined with another dance called the 'muscle wine'.

The 41-year-old actor was so worried about being cast as South Africa's first black president in the biopic 'Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom' he refused to consider the idea and he even tried to pass the role onto Morgan Freeman - who played Mandela in 2009 film 'Invictus'.

Speaking in the January issue of Reader's Digest magazine, he said: "You know, I was really, really sensitive [about the role]. My agent called up to ask if I wanted to play Mandela and I put the phone down on him. I was like, no way. Mandela? Couldn't do it.

"You're asking me to play Mandela, do you think I'm going to play a f***ing Disney Mandela? Don't ask me to do that yeah?

"Then I thought to myself, called him back and said, 'Can I be honest? If it's a grey-haired version of the fist-pumping Mandela, I'm not the actor to bring in. I'm not Morgan, go with Morgan."

Idris - who plays a younger version of Mandela showing his struggle as a younger man against apartheid rule in South Africa - is being tipped for an Oscar for Best Actor for his portrayal of the late Nelson Mandela, who died aged 95 last Thursday (05.12.13) following prolonged lung problems.

Before Tessanne Chin was announced the winner of The Voice tonight, her biggest moment on the show was her performance with five-time Grammy winner Celine Dion.

Celine and Tessanne sang Love Can Move Mountains to thunderous applause.

Following the performance, Tessanne tweeted: "Absolutely speechless Miss @celinedion thank you for making my dream come true. You are even more amazing in person!!! It was an honour."

Tessanne also got another surprise when she was given a car courtesy of Kia Motors, as well as the other finalists, Jacquie Lee and Will Champlin.

The night was also filled with other performances from the top 20 contestants, along with One Republic, Paramore, Ne-Yo and Aloe Blacc.

Following the many performances in the two hour-long show, the contestants lined up on stage to speak to their coaches and await the results.

"A better coach for me I could not find. I thank you everyday for choosing me," Tessanne said to Adam Levine. "It has been a great pleasure, you have been a great, solid guy."

With nerves and emotions very high, Champlin was announced third place winner.

Then said Daly: "The winner of The Voice is Tessanne Chin."

Following the announcement, tears flowed as Tessanne sang a song written for her by One Republic.

The last time Half Way Tree had so much people at once was during Olympics and of course world championship. But following Digicel's decision to send thousands of text messages inviting all their subscribers to watch the show at Half Way Tree, Jamaica now has a new reason to line up in the middle of the town staring a the huge monitors erected facing the transport center.

Tessanne Chin who performed well through the competition not only had the support of her family, but the entire Jamaica and the diaspora.

Several Watch parties supporting the artiste were reportedly held in the USA in support of the Jamaican beauty.

Adam Levine found himself in a tough position going into "The Voice's" last performance show Monday. Two of his singers are in the final three. Both, understandably, are trying to win. What's a coach to do?

In Adam's case, the answer was to throw all his support to Tessanne Chin.

Give the coach credit -- he sure wasn't subtle about it. Since only one of his contestants can win, he went all-in for his Jamaican singer with the reggae roots and the big voice. That's a perfectly justifiable strategy, given how well she performed on Monday, and how she's done all season.

With Sting's 30th anniversary show just around the corner, the Don Gorgon Ninja Man is set to retain his title as one of the greatest clash artistes of all time.

"Dem can sign all who dem waan sign, but mek dem know sey nuh come wid nuh competition because anything cross dis yah border a go dead lyrically. Jamaican flag naah guh a grung,"

ninja-man-sting.jpg
Ninja Man added that State Minister of Entertainment, Damion Crawford, must be commended for supporting dancehall in a corporate way and recognising how lucrative the industry is.

"A dancehall artiste bring home money and spend money pon de yute dem mek it circulate," Ninja articulated.

He advised the government to come to the table with zoning, which will allow venues for lyrics with adult content and for which the 2 a.m. shut-off time will be adjusted.

With Sting dubbed, 'The greatest one night show on earth', Ninja Man is adamant that dancehall music is not dead, but has deteriorated.

"Josey Wales ah still de Colonel, Chaplin a still de Principal, Shabba Ranks a de Emperor, Yellowman and Beenie Man a King. Shabba get two Grammy, Buju get one Grammy and Beenie get one Grammy," he said.

Questioned further as to his views on dancehall being 'locked up in jail', Ninja Man stated that no one artiste is responsible for the genre.

"No one artiste cyan mek dancehall guh a grung! Every six months a new artiste buss and prepare fi mek him name pon Sting. Dis year every artiste a try win US $30,000 fi kill KipRich."

Returning his focus to his impending Sting clash, Ninja Man stated that this year's show will be a celebration.

"Sting dis year have supn fi young people and fi ol' people. The venue a go secure. It's going to be a celebration with with lyrics, entertainment and enjoyment. Di ol' balladeer dem, me, Cat and Bailey dem. Mi not even tell nobody whe mi a come wid dis year. Just come out fi Sting," Ninja Man said.

Already on this year's line up for Sting are 2 Chainz and Wycliffe Jean. There are also talks about Busta Rhymes being considered for booking.

While Vybz Kartel lingers behind bars, ex Gaza members are busy mending their bridges. Popcaan is said to have apologized to Bounty Killer earlier this year and sent the artiste a voice note for his birthday. Now Ex-Gaza member, dancehall star Jah Vinci, has teamed up with ex-Alliance member Bridgez to do a combination single called 'Dream Love' on the Diamond Music Empire label.

"We voiced the song three months ago. Jah Vinci is simply brilliant, he went into the studio, heard the rhythm and wrote the song on the spot. He wrote everything; he simply freestyled the song from start to finish, telling me what to sing and how to sing it. He is simply incredible," Bridgez said, adding that the experience was a bit intimidating given that Jah Vinci is such a great singer.

"It was a bit of a challenge because his voice is so strong, but I was able to dig deep and do my best. He really inspired me to do some things, and brought things out of me that I didn't know I could do," she revealed.

jah-vinci-photo-1.jpg
Jah Vinci enjoyed being the creative force behind the combination single. "I really enjoyed working with Bridgez, she is a really good singer whom I expect great things from in the future. I have been getting a lot of positive responses to the song from fans on Facebook and Twitter. DJ Wayne played it the other day, and several Sunciti Radio disc jocks have been playing it, so it's a good look," Jah Vinci said.

As 2013 draws to a close, the former 'Portmore Empire' star is determined to capture a bigger chunk of the marketplace. He released two videos recently, My Love on the 'Party Block' rhythm on the Hapilos Entertainment Label, and Mama Don't Cry, produced by brothers, Blade and Taz of Social Yaad on their 'Sacred Heart' rhythm.

Fans can expect a vast array of Jah Vinci's music from various renowned producers including Chimney Records, Hapilos Ent., So Unique Records and CrO2 (ZJ Chrome). Also a catalogue of other music videos is set to be released soon.Jah Vinci also recorded with Vybz Kartel's former rival Ma

Snoop (formerly Snoop Dogg) is nominated for Reincarnated. He says his conversion to Rastafari was inspired by a visit to Jamaica in 2012 when he experienced a spiritual awakening while meeting with a group of Rastafarian elders.

Sly and Robbie and the Jam Masters' Reggae Connection, Sizzla's The Messiah, One Love, One Life by Beres Hammond and Ziggy Marley in Concert are the other nominees for Best Reggae Album.

Steffens formed A Reggae Committee and served as its chairman until 2011. He has openly criticised the selection process, claiming that judges favour albums produced by the Marley family.

snoop-lion-photo-5.jpg

The Marleys have dominated the category since it was established in 1985. Brothers Ziggy, Damian and Stephen have won Grammys as solo acts, while Ziggy and Steve won multiple times as members of Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers.

Steffens, considered an authority on Bob Marley and the Wailers, believes this year's nominees maintain the trend of mediocre selections.

"The nominations this year fit into the pocket of name recognition more than anything else, regardless of sales or actual quality," he said.

Reincarnated, with sales of over 80,000 units, is the best selling reggae album for 2013. The year has been poor in terms of sales by Jamaican artistes, with American reggae bands performing better on the Billboard charts.

The Snoop set attracted mass coverage from mainstream media in the United States, due to his conversion from 'gangsta rap' icon to cultural artiste.

The lanky rapper (real name Calvin Broadus) is one of the godfathers of gangsta rap which emerged out of southern California's impoverished communities in the early 1990s with hardcore rap acts such as NWA and Ice T.

The 56th annual Grammy Awards is scheduled for the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles on January 26.

With just one performance left until a contestant is crowned the winner of The Voice, supporters of Tessanne Chin were confident as they awaited the names of the three contestants who would advance to the finals.

Tessanne Chin stood out during last night's performance show, battling through tears with a performance that coach Adam Levine described as the best performance in the history of the show.

Last week, Tessanne wowed fans with renditions of Bob Marley's Redemption Song and Katy Perry's Unconditionally, which saw the songs moving up the iTunes chart. After a world-class performance of Simon and Garfunkel's Bridge Over Troubled Water last night, the song rapidly climbed the iTunes chart and settled comfortably in the number one position. This automatically meant that Tessanne's votes were multiplied by five this week.

Questioned as to what moving on to the finals would mean to her, Tessanne declared it would be an honour.

"To have come this far is an honour in itself. To move forward would be a way for me to thank you for all your support. It would be a chance to change my life. I love you," she said.

With a record deal with Universal Music Group and US$100,000 (J$10m) within grasp, fans breathed a sigh of relief as host Carson Daly announced that Tessanne Chin was the first person moving into the finals and was just one week away from being declared 'The Voice'.

Joining Tessanne in the finals are Jacquie Lee from Team Christina and Will Champlin from Team Adam.




L.A Lewis challenges Bounty Killer and Mad Cobra

la-lewis-photo-1.jpg
LA Lewis is not taking his defeat to Tanto Blacks during the Magnum All-Star Celebrity $1,000,000 Face-Off last Thursday night lightly.

Turning his anger towards Mad Cobra and Bounty Killer, to declare war.

The first of Lewis' grouses has come because of a Bounty Killer dub unleashed by Tanto Blacks during the clash.

According to Lewis, he considers Bounty a friend, and a friend should not have given, "a clown, dub fi shoot mi. A clown him clown mi out."

The 'violation' does not mean an immediate war though as the 'Illuminati' (again self- proclaimed) is giving Bounty 88 hours to make a public apology.

"Bounty knows what 88 hours mean, double infinity. Tell Bounty don't ramp wid mi!"

According to LA Lewis, he has long told Bounty Killer he is the star of the night, "and me a di star a di day."

With that in mind, LA Lewis says Killer must be careful he (LA Lewis) doesn't "start wear piece a black an' start run di day an' di night".

"Him wave him rights fi call LA Lewis him friend," Lewis declared.

While L.A. Lewis has extended a time frame for quashing the possibility of a beef with Bounty, Mad Cobra is getting no such favours.

"Mad Cobra fi know seh a Gaza run Portmore and him run a quarter acre. Him run a quarter acre and call it Brixton," said Lewis.

His anger at Mad Cobra has come because, according to Lewis, the Flex singer had his fans boo him to ensure he lost the clash.

"Before mi start dem a boo," said Lewis.

"Cobra feel like seh him could a bring een im crew fi boo mi an' mi wouldn't know?" Lewis asked.

mad-cobra-photo-1.jpg

"Him fi memba seh, a me seh Gaza," said Lewis, going on to explain that Mad Cobra was angry that LA Lewis had done songs dissing him. According to Lewis, Cobra ran away from the impending clash, and, instead, chose underhanded methods of seeking revenge.

While angered at the two artistes because of the clash, Lewis says he has nothing against Tanto Blacks, who unceremoniously dispatched his efforts last Thursday.

"Mi big up Tanto Blacks on him victory. Is a trying yute 'an' mi nuh have nutt'n 'gainst him."

bounty-killer-look-caribtorch.jpg
Turning his anger back to Bounty, Lewis pointed out that he was more than fair in giving the 88-hour ultimatum.

"If war start, nubaddy cyaa seh LA Lewis cause trouble. Mi gi him whole heap a time fi apologise."

The Turkish FA (TFF) are planning to summon the Galatasaray pair to appear before the Professional Football Discipline Committee because they had not sought prior permission to display their messages.

It is in contrast to England where games this weekend have been preceded by a minute of applause in celebration of Mandela's life and his role in ending apartheid in South Africa and transforming the international profile of Africa.

Plans to discipline Drogba and Eboue are certain to attract criticism and fuel debate in Turkey, where the TFF are trying to keep political imagery out of football as directed by FIFA, although it has proved increasingly difficult in a football-crazy nation beset by political tension.

Players from Fethiyespor were recently charged by the disciplinary committee for wearing t-shirts reading: 'Great Ataturk' in homage of the founder of modern Turkey.

After temporarily ditching hardcore lyrics for songs about unity and anti-violence, Snoop Dogg has seen his Reggae efforts rewarded by The Recording Academy as he was named one of five finalists on Friday for the Best Reggae Album award at next year's Grammy Awards.

The artist, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, is being nominated for his album, Reincarnated, released in April while using the Snoop Lion moniker. The album, which features collaborations with Mavado, Popcaan, Mr. Vegas, Drake and Miley Cyrus amongst others, was the best-selling Reggae album in the United States this year, with over 21,000 copies sold in its debut week and, to date, has sold well over 50,000 copies there.

Despite criticism from legendary Jamaican artists such as Bunny Wailer and Lady Saw, the album received a number of positive reviews. However, the Snoop Lion act appears to have been cut, at least for the time being, as he recently changed his name again, to Snoopzilla.

Another artist receiving his first Reggae Grammy nod is Sizzla Kalonji for his album, The Messiah. Having recorded over 70 albums in his career, it is the first chance he will have a music's most prestigious award. The Messiah features 15 tracks, including Chant Dem Down and Psalm 121.

Beres Hammond is also amongst the finalists, securing his first nomination since 2002 with his One Love, One Life double album, featuring the hit single, In My Arms.

The other two contenders for the Best Reggae Album award are four-time winner, Ziggy Marley for Ziggy Marley in Concert and Sly and Robbie and the Jam Masters with Reggae Connection.

Nelson Mandella Dead at age 95

Nelson Mandela, who became one of the world's most beloved statesmen and a colossus of the 20th century when he emerged from 27 years in prison to negotiate an end to white minority rule in South Africa, has died. He was 95.

South African president Jacob Zuma made the announcement at a news conference late Thursday, saying, "We've lost our greatest son."

The signs of Nelson Mandela's epic life, hope and progress can be seen everywhere in Soweto, Rick Reilly writes. Story
 
Mandela's death closed the final chapter in South Africa's struggle to cast off apartheid, leaving the world with indelible memories of a man of astonishing grace and good humor. Rock concerts celebrated his birthday. Hollywood stars glorified him on screen. And his regal bearing, graying hair and raspy voice made him instantly recognizable across the globe.

President Barack Obama said the world lost an influential, courageous and "profoundly good" man with Mandela's death.

Speaking from the White House, Obama said Mandela "no longer belongs to us. He belongs to the ages."

"I am one of the countless millions who drew inspiration from Nelson Mandela's life," he continued. "And like so many around the globe, I cannot fully imagine my own life without the example that Nelson Mandela set."

Obama met with Mandela's family earlier this year when he visited South Africa. But he did not meet with the ailing leader, who was hospitalized throughout the U.S. president's visit.

As South Africa's first black president, the ex-boxer, lawyer and prisoner No. 46664 paved the way to racial reconciliation with well-chosen gestures of forgiveness. He lunched with the prosecutor who sent him to jail, sang the apartheid-era Afrikaans anthem at his inauguration, and traveled hundreds of miles to have tea with the widow of Hendrik Verwoerd, the prime minister at the time he was imprisoned.

His most memorable gesture came when he strode onto the field before the 1995 Rugby World Cup final in Johannesburg. When he came on the field in South African colors to congratulate the victorious South African team, he brought the overwhelmingly white crowd of 63,000 to its feet, chanting "Nelson! Nelson! Nelson!"

For he had marched headlong into a bastion of white Afrikanerdom -- the temple of South African rugby -- and made its followers feel they belonged in the new South Africa.

Mandela also helped seal his country's bid to become the first in Africa to host a World Cup.

Tragically, he kept a low profile during the 2010 World Cup after his great-granddaughter was killed in an automobile accident following a concert to kick off the opening night of the event.

After much anticipation and speculation that he would remain absent as his family continued to mourn the 13-year-old Zenani Mandela, he attended the World Cup's closing ceremonies amid a thunderous mix of vuvuzelas and roars from the crowd.

Nelson Mandela and Graca Machel greet fans before the final of the 2010 Soccer World Cup.

At the same time, Mandela was himself uneasy with the idea of being an icon and he did not escape criticism as an individual and a politician, though much of it was muted by his status as a unassailable symbol of decency and principle. As president, he failed to craft a lasting formula for overcoming South Africa's biggest post-apartheid problems, including one of the world's widest gaps between rich and poor. In his writings, he pondered the heavy cost to his family of his decision to devote himself to the struggle against apartheid.

He had been convicted of treason and sentenced to life imprisonment in 1964 for leading a campaign of sabotage against the government, and sent to the notorious Robben Island prison. It was forbidden to quote him or publish his photo, yet he and other jailed members of his banned African National Congress were able to smuggle out messages of guidance to the anti-apartheid crusade.

As time passed -- the "long, lonely, wasted years," as he termed them -- international awareness of apartheid grew more acute. By the time Mandela turned 70 he was the world's most famous political prisoner. Such were his mental reserves, though, that he turned down conditional offers of freedom from his apartheid jailers and even found a way to benefit from confinement.

"People tend to measure themselves by external accomplishments, but jail allows a person to focus on internal ones; such as honesty, sincerity, simplicity, humility, generosity and an absence of variety," Mandela says in one of the many quotations displayed at the Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg. "You learn to look into yourself."

Thousands died, were tortured and were imprisoned in the decades-long struggle against apartheid, so that when Mandela emerged from prison in 1990, smiling and waving to the crowds, the image became an international icon of freedom to rival the fall of the Berlin Wall.

South Africa's white rulers had portrayed Mandela as the spearhead of a communist revolution and insisted that black majority rule would usher in the chaos and bloodshed that had beset many other African countries as they shook off colonial rule.

Yet since apartheid ended, South Africa has held four parliamentary elections and elected three presidents, always peacefully, setting an example on a continent where democracy is still new and fragile. Its democracy has flaws, and the African National Congress has struggled to deliver on promises. It is a front-runner ahead of 2014 elections, but corruption scandals and other missteps have undercut some of the promise of earlier years.

I am one of the countless millions who drew inspiration from Nelson Mandela's life. And like so many around the globe, I cannot fully imagine my own life without the example that Nelson Mandela set.
"
-- President Barack Obama 

"We have confounded the prophets of doom and achieved a bloodless revolution. We have restored the dignity of every South African," Mandela said shortly before stepping down as president in 1999 at age 80.

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela was born July 18, 1918, the son of a tribal chief in Transkei, one of the future "Bantustans," independent republics set up by the apartheid regime to cement the separation of whites and blacks.

Mandela's royal upbringing gave him a dignified bearing that became his hallmark. Many South Africans of all races would later call him by his clan name, Madiba, as a token of affection and respect.

Growing up at a time when virtually all of Africa was under European colonial rule, Mandela attended Methodist schools before being admitted to the black University of Fort Hare in 1938. He was expelled two years later for his role in a student strike.

He moved to Johannesburg and worked as a policeman at a gold mine, boxed as an amateur heavyweight and studied law.

His first wife, nurse Evelyn Mase, bore him four children. A daughter died in infancy, a son was killed in a car crash in 1970 and another son died of AIDS in 2005. The couple divorced in 1957, and Evelyn died in 2004.

Mandela began his rise through the anti-apartheid movement in 1944, when he helped form the ANC Youth League.

He organized a campaign in 1952 to encourage defiance of laws that segregated schools, marriage, housing and job opportunities. The government retaliated by barring him from attending gatherings and leaving Johannesburg, the first of many "banning" orders he was to endure.

After a two-day nationwide strike was crushed by police, he and a small group of ANC colleagues decided on military action and Mandela pushed to form the movement's guerrilla wing, Umkhonto we Sizwe, or Spear of the Nation.

He was arrested in 1962 and sentenced to five years' hard labor for leaving the country illegally and inciting blacks to strike.

A year later, police uncovered the ANC's underground headquarters on a farm near Johannesburg and seized documents outlining plans for a guerrilla campaign. At a time when African colonies were one by one becoming independent states, Mandela and seven co-defendants were sentenced to life in prison.

Nelson Mandela made a statement about reconciliation by wearing a Springboks jersey and congratulating captain Francois Pienaar after the team won the 1995 Rugby World Cup.

"I do not deny that I planned sabotage," he told the court. "I did not plan it in a spirit of recklessness, nor because I have any love of violence. I planned it as a result of a calm and sober assessment of the political situation that had arisen after years of tyranny, exploitation and oppression of my people by whites."

The ANC's armed wing was later involved in a series of high-profile bombings that killed civilians, and many in the white minority viewed the imprisoned Mandela as a terrorist. Up until 2008, when President George W. Bush rescinded the order, he could not visit the U.S. without a waiver from the secretary of state certifying he was not a terrorist.

From the late 1960s South Africa gradually became an international pariah, expelled from the U.N., banned from the Olympics. In 1973 Mandela refused a government offer of release on condition he agree to confine himself to his native Transkei. In 1982 he and other top ANC inmates were moved off Robben Island to a mainland prison. Three years later Mandela was again offered freedom, and again he refused unless segregation laws were scrapped and the government negotiated with the ANC.

In 1989, F.W. de Klerk became president. This Afrikaner recognized the end was near for white-ruled South Africa. Mandela, for his part, continued, even in his last weeks in prison, to advocate nationalizing banks, mines and monopoly industries -- a stance that frightened the white business community.

But talks were already underway, with Mandela being spirited out of prison to meet a white Cabinet minister.

On Feb. 11, 1990, inmate No. 46664, who had once been refused permission to leave prison for his mother's funeral, went free and walked hand-in-hand with Winnie, his wife. Blacks across the country erupted in joy -- as did many whites.

Mandela took charge of the ANC, shared the 1993 Nobel Peace Prize with de Klerk and was elected president by a landslide in South Africa's first all-race election the following year.

At his inauguration, he stood hand on heart, saluted by white generals as he sang along to two anthems: the apartheid-era Afrikaans "Die Stem," ("The Voice") and the African "Nkosi Sikelel' iAfrika" ("Lord Bless Africa").

To black South Africans expecting a speedy new deal, Mandela pleaded for patience. The millions denied proper housing, schools and health care under apartheid had expected the revolution to deliver quick fixes, but Mandela recognized he had to embrace free market policies to keep white-dominated big business on his side and attract foreign investment.

For all his saintly image, Mandela had an autocratic streak. When black journalists mildly criticized his government, he painted them as stooges of the whites who owned the media. Whites with complaints were dismissed as pining for their old privileges.

He denounced Bush as a warmonger and the U.S. having "committed unspeakable atrocities in the world." When asked about his closeness to Fidel Castro and Moammar Gadhafi despite human rights violations in the countries they ruled, Mandela explained that he wouldn't forsake supporters of the anti-apartheid struggle.

With his fellow Nobelist, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, he set up the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, which allowed human rights offenders of all races to admit their crimes publicly in return for lenient treatment. It proved to be a kind of national therapy that would become a model for other countries emerging from prolonged strife.

He increasingly left the governing to deputy president Thabo Mbeki, who took over when Mandela's term ended in June 1999 and he declined to seek another -- a rarity among African presidents.

"I must step down while there are one or two people who admire me," Mandela joked at the time. When he retired, he said he was going to stand on a street with a sign that said: "Unemployed, no job. New wife and large family to support."

His marriage to Winnie had fallen apart after his release and he was now married to Graca Machel, the widowed former first lady of neighboring Mozambique.

He is survived by Machel, his daughter Makaziwe by his first marriage, and daughters Zindzi and Zenani by his second.




Vybz Kartel Jesus painting angers Christians

vybz-kartel-photo-12.jpg

An image that is currently being circulated online of dancehall artiste Vybz Kartel being depicted as a god has sparked outrage and mix reactions from viewers on social media.

The painting shows a fully tattooed, light-skinned Kartel sitting high on a throne made of gold in the clouds. In the image, he is seen holding a staff in his right hand and contorting his fingers to the 'empire' sign on the other.

Kartel can also be seen in the painting dressed in a pink toga, purple cap with the letter 'W' and matching Clarks, while having his chin caressed by a topless woman on bended knees staring adoringly at him as he looks on.

But unlike the doting woman in the painting, some viewers were not amused while others stated that it was a ploy by the artiste to remain relevant during his incarceration.

"That photo is just so wrong in so many ways!" a Facebook viewer commented.

Another stated, "And he draws out people yet again, when unuh gonna learn seh him do this just for the attention! Smart man!"

The painting's creator has also come under scrutiny by viewers, with many accusing him of idolizing the artiste.

"The painting is about his ego and the image he was portraying to the world," he said.

When asked what was the inspiration behind the picture, Robinson said "The inspiration was how the media portrayed Kartel at the time."

He also said, "The painting is a recreation of 'Ingres's - Jupiter and Thetis'. It illustrates Jamaica's media portrayal of Vybz Kartel as a larger than life figure in dancehall. They placed him on that throne and dancehall society at his feet and blamed him for the behaviour of youths."

Robinson also sought to dismiss claims that the painting was published by Kartel or members of his camp as a ploy to stir up controversy to keep the artiste relevant during his incarceration.

"Kartel has nothing to do with the picture, this was created before he was imprisoned, he knows nothing about the painting and has probably never seen it."

The picture first surfaced on this Free Vybz Kartel page on facebook.

Government forensic analyst Sharon Bryson testified today in Vybz Kartel's murder trial that blood found at the entertainer's house was in fact human but that a comparative DNA test did not return a match to Clive 'Lizard' Williams.

Earlier in the trial, an investigator testified that he found what appeared to be bloodstains at the entertainer's home in Havendale, St Andrew where Williams was allegedly beaten before being killed on August 16, 2011 over two missing guns.

The analyst told the court that the sample was first examined for blood followed by DNA analysis, and that the test returned a positive result for blood of human origin, belonging to a male.

The forensic analyst said because there was no body, swabs were taken from an uncle of the alleged deceased, however the results did not return a match with the sample taken from Kartel's house.

Kartel is jointly charged with fellow entertainer Shawn Storm, Kahira Jones, Shane Williams and Andre St John for William's murder.

The principal of a high school in St Catherine had to seek medical attention yesterday after being attacked by a male student who punched him repeatedly.

Reports are that about 12:30 p.m., the principal saw a fifth-form student with a hoody on along with an earring. The boy was called and he was said to have refused going to the principal.

He was subsequently held and was being led to the office, when he reportedly started to rain blows on the principal who fell.

The enraged attacker continued punching him while he was on the ground. He ended up suffering swollen lips, a cut over his right eye, forehead and bruises all over.

Teachers had to rescue principal and washed his bloody face in the school's bathroom.

The police were called in and the student was taken into custody.

Called the Bog Walk Police Station, personnel acknowledged the incident, but refused to give details.

Meanwhile, calls to the school went unanswered.

Tessanne Chin Gone to Semi Finals !!

Maintaining the momentum of two spectacular performances on last night's show, Tessanne Chin supporters once again rallied around the artiste to secure her a spot in the semi-finals of The Voice.

Adam Levine, who had pulled off a 'Houdini' act by having all his contestants saved from elimination in consecutive weeks, was hoping for that trend to continue into the semi-finals ... And, it did.

Last night, Blake Shelton admitted that Tessanne was a world-class vocalist and voters certainly agreed. With both of her performances of the previous night making it into the Top 20 on the iTunes chart, the TessTop4 parties held across the Corporate Area certainly paid off.

After announcing that her family's support meant everything to her, Tessanne breathed a sigh of relief as it was announced that she was guaranteed a spot in the semis.

"Their support has meant everything. They believed in me when I didn't believe in myself. I want to thank them for always believing in me," Tessanne said.

Earlier in the night, in the spirit of the Yuletide season, Kelly Clarkson opened the show with her latest Christmas single Underneath the Tree, and prepared the contestants for the inevitable voting results. Tessanne also joined contestants Matthew Schuler and Jacquie Lee earlier in the night for a rendition of You Got The Love by Florence Welch. She also joined all the contestants for a spectacular rendition of O Holy Night.

With only five contestants guaranteed a spot in the semi-finals, and, with this being the last opportunity for fans to instantly save one of the contestants via tweeting, it came as a shock to many that fan-favourite Matthew Schuler was once again at the bottom.

Unfortunately, he was not as lucky the second time around, and was eliminated.

Joining Tessanne in the semi-finals are Cole Vosbury from Team Blake, Jacquie Lee from Team Christina and Will Champlin and James Wolpert from Team Adam. Wolpert was saved by the voice save feature.

Strong sexual allegations have been made against a male teacher at a high school in St Catherine, who has been accused of fondling male students.

It is also been alleged that the teacher is a repeat offender.

"He is unstable moving from school to school for similar offences," a concerned person SAID

It is being alleged that the teacher has taken a liking to some boys enrolled at the school and has acted on his desires.

"Him holding down male students to kiss them and him asking male students about their penises," an informant shared with our news team.

Further claims are that the educator arrives at the institution in the wee hours of the morning before school begins so he has time to enjoy himself with the students.

Inappropriate

"He is at school at inappropriate times like 5 a.m. with the boys," the source revealed.

A probe by our news team revealed that the school administration met Wednesday to address the complaints. It is unclear if the participation of the boys is voluntary or involuntary.

Head of The Centre For The Investigation of Sexual Offences and Child Abuse (CISOCA), Deputy Superintendent Veronica Gilzeans, could not be reached as calls to her phone went unanswered.

However, Corporal Terry-Ann Warren of the unit, revealed that information on such cases cannot be disclosed.

"I am not aware of that report and even if I had I couldn't give it to you. CISOCA deals with sexual allegations and child abuse and that in itself will tell you how sensitive such matters are," she said.

We were unable to make contact with any representative of the school's administration.
