According to a report in the Trinidad Express, about 2:30 p.m., officers of the Organised Crime, Narcotics and Firearms Bureau went to a hotel in Port-of-Spain and searched the room of the Jamaican. Following that, his underwear was searched and a sex toy filled with 342 grams (12.06oz) of cocaine was allegedly found. The police believe the man was awaiting the arrival of a female drug mule who would have taken the drug out of the country.

Deejay Vybz Kartel, has been remanded until November 3. Kartel, whose real name is Adidjah Palmer appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court this morning to answer to the murder of a man in Havendale, St. Andrew. The DJ is charged jointly with Kiro Jones, alias 'Ray Jones', and Calvin Haye with the August 16 murder of Clive Williams. Haye was also remanded and has been ordered to give his fingerprints to the police. It is alleged that on that on August 16, Williams was led to a house where he was beaten and stabbed to death. Investigators are yet to find his body. The attack reportedly stemmed from the loss of an illegal gun. Meanwhile, the drug case against Kartel was also set to be called up in court today. Kartel is charged with illegal possession of ganja. A magistrate is to rule Wednesday on a bail application made by Kartel's lawyers in relation to another murder case against the controversial DJ. Kartel is accused of the shooting death of St. Catherine businessman and promoter, Barrington Burton. Burton was murdered while standing with friends in Gregory Park, St. Catherine, in July. Two other men are also charged with the murder of the businessman.
Corey mi like it. Link we.
"I cannot be associated with or do business with someone I don't trust. Kartel and I haven't seen eye to eye in a while, and late last week, after a disagreement, he threatened me on the phone because I "refused to tek chat". I don't take kindly to threats against me and my family, and I have contacted my lawyers and the relevant authorities to deal with this issue immediately," Todd said.
"I am my own man, I have never worked for Vybz Kartel, I helped to build his career, but I was never about the division in music, or his need to pigeonhole everything as Gaza or not Gaza. I don't understand
the creative direction he's moving in with regards to his image or his music. I don't know this new Vybz Kartel, I haven't known him for quite a while. Enough is enough. I wish him the best with his career," Todd said.
Todd and Palmer started the Unlimited Daggering company three years ago to manufacture, market and distribute Street Vybz Rum. The company also employs several people at a St. Andrew-based factory. The two also operate the Building nightclub in New Kingston.
Todd sought to reassure his workers that he would find employment for them in his other business ventures if they are displaced.
'I am not keeping any events at the Building nightclub for the foreseeable future, I am not doing anymore business with Vybz Kartel. However, I will be doing another product soon, so I am moving forward and I hope to work with other artistes to help build their careers as well," he said.

The police have made a breakthrough in their probe into Sunday's bomb threat that led to a ban on air cargo from Jamaica to the United States.
Detectives from the Organised Crime Investigation Division (OCID) have arrested a man in connection with the incident at the Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston.
A statement issued by the Jamaica Constabulary Force says he was taken into custody Wednesday afternoon and is to be interviewed by investigators on Thursday.
Wednesday's arrest came a day after the United States lifted its suspension on air cargo from Jamaica.
The ban was imposed after a report was received that an explosive could be in cargo leaving Jamaica to the US.
However, it later discovered to have been a hoax.
In a statement to Parliament on Tuesday, Mike Henry, Transport and Works Minister said preliminary investigations suggested that the report was contrived to defame an employee of an airport concessionaire.
The daughter of Kingston Mayor Desmond McKenzie was taken into custody by the Duhaney Park police Wednesday after a woman accused her of being involved in a visa scam.
The woman is reported to have claimed that she paid $297,000 in order to obtain visas to access three first-world countries of her choice. She said, however, that after this did not come through, she requested that her money be returned.
It is alleged that after her money wasn't returned in a reasonable time, she reported the matter to the police. The report was said to have been made on February 25 despite assurances that the situation was not a case of fraud.
It was reported that McKenzie's daughter told the woman, in an attempt to reassure her, that her reputable father had created access for visas on numerous occasions and could take care of everything.
There has been an outbreak of Chicken Pox at the Constant Spring Police lock up in St. Andrew.
Officials of the Public Health Department ordered a quarantine of the lock up, after five prisoners were diagnosed with the virus on Wednesday.
The lock up has been placed under quarantine for the next two weeks.
The Police High Command has ordered that no new prisoners should be taken to the lock up and those currently there should remain until the quarantine is lifted.
The High Command has ordered that the prisoners with the virus be isolated and that protective gear be provided for police personnel who work in the cells.
Among the 80 prisoners being housed in the lock-up is Garnett Reid, Jamaica Labour Party caretaker.
Chicken Pox is a highly contagious illness caused by primary infection with the varicella zoster virus.
It usually starts as a vesicular skin rash mainly on the body and head, which becomes itchy with raw pock marks that normally heal without scarring for some persons.
Reverend Al Miller of the Fellowship Tabernacle Church, the Reverend Al Miller, has been charged in connection with the disappearance of his licensed firearm, the police have confirmed, according to a report in the Sunday Gleaner.
"He is scheduled to appear before the court this week," the member of the St Andrew North Police Division reportedly told The Sunday Gleaner yesterday.
Allegations are that about two weeks ago, in the Shortwood Road area of St Andrew, the well-known pastor parked his vehicle, and on his return, discovered that a pouch with his firearm was missing.
"I was standing just metres away from the vehicle when it happened," Miller told The Sunday Gleaner. He subsequently reported the theft to the police.
He has been a licensed firearm holder from the early 1990s, he said.
Samantha Ballentyne, the daughter of incarcerated dancehall deejay Desmond ‘Ninjaman’ Ballentyne, is distraught over reports that her father has been beaten in prison.
“I can’t believe that this is happening to him. I saw him two weeks ago and it was bad. But now for me to hear that he has been beaten … this just hurts,” the 18 year-old said from her home in Switzerland.
According to Samantha’s mother Joy, the deejay is having a rough time.
“I should be elsewhere but I am here because of Samantha. She loves her dad a lot and she is worried about him, so I am here just trying to do whatever I can to help Desmond. Ninja is a kind guy and he has given away a lot to people, but when he needs help where are these people?” Joy asked.
She explained that the whole situation erupted, ironically, after Samantha paid her father a visit just before leaving for Switzerland and gave him some money.
“The reports are that the money was taken from him and that caused the problem that led to him getting a fist in his face,” Joy explained.
“I am just waiting for a call to hear that he is out on bail,” a tearful Samantha, who deejays under the moniker Ninja Princess declared.
Ninjaman, who has been refused bail on numerous occasions, has been behind bars for nearly two years. He is now an inmate at the Horizon Remand Centre in Kingston.
Ninjaman, along with his 20 year old son and two others have been charged with murder, conspiracy to murder, shooting with intent and illegal possession of a firearm in connection with the death of a 20 year-old man in March 2009.
He returns to court on February 11.

The Government's plan to realize projected revenues from the recent increase in alcohol taxes could be stymied by the withholding of products by major players in the market.
According to a report on RJR News since the increased tax took effect on Wednesday, the biggest player in the wines market, Wray and Nephew, has been refusing to sell their products to retailers and wholesalers.
Other players are said to have curtailed product sales as well.
It is believed that Wray and Nephew is furious that they were not consulted before the implementation of the tax which their rivals, Red Stripe, lobbied for.
The company has been in discussions with the Finance Ministry since Wednesday, but is yet to reach an agreement on the matter.
The tax on alcohol was projected to earn the Government $618 million from now until the end of the fiscal year, to help plug an impending hole in the budget.
However, with Wray and Nephew withholding sales until the company concludes consultations with the Finance Minister, it is not yet known how much of that money has been lost.
On average, the increased tax should earn about $5 million per day for the Government's coffers.

We know there will be thousands of disappointed fans who had planned to attend, Mavado shares your disappointment.
We received a police permit on October 20 for the original venue, Coruba Beach Club, but were shocked to receive another letter from the same branch of the JCF revoking that permit just last week.
Mavado has taken a huge financial loss in this endeavour as the promotion team did not spend a dollar until the police permit was in place. Alas, it seems not even that can be relied upon.
Since we received the letter of refusal at least 3 events have been held at that same venue, so while we are not surprised that Mavado's event has been targeted, its still a bitter pill. Alternative venues were sought out but the logistics were just too much to take on at the last minute so the decision was taken to pull the plug on the event for 2010.
If you can recall, this is something that seems to blight Mavado's birthday bash year after year, we leave it to the public to make up their own minds as to why that is.
We would like to thank our title sponsor LIME, a fantastic company who believes in Mavado and the positive image and music he outputs and continues to stand by him.
Likewise Jagra, who played a big part in last year's staging of the event, alongside Appleton who came on board for the first time this year.
See you next year!
Dancehall artiste Michael Davey, better known as Powerman, and his landlord 47-year-old musician Nicholas Henry, are to return to the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court on January 25.
The landlord is accused of assaulting the artiste with a piece of iron.
When the matter came up yesterday in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court, it was rescheduled by Resident Magistrate Lorna Shelly Williams for a mention date in January, in order for Henry's lawyer to be present in court.

According to Powerman, while he was away his landlord had contacted him about rent, behaving boisterously and threatening to assault him.

Dancehall artiste Reanno Gordon Busy Signal has denied having recently recorded a dub plate as a counteraction to a lyrical attack by Twin of Twins.
Reports are that the Deejay said that it was actually a dub plate; he recorded for sound system Cash Money in 2006. In addition, it did not involve the name of an artiste, and the dub was not done as a counteraction for any songs done by the dancehall duo.
The whole thing started over a recent mix tape that was released by the sound system which has a Busy song throwing a few choice words at the Twins. However, Busy claims that the Twins' name was spliced into the old dub, and a clip from Bling Dawg's Summer Jam earlier this year was added, in an effort to create excitement about a possible confrontation.
The Twins has a song called: Mix-Up, which made reference to a track done by Busy. So apparently, Cash Money is trying to start something, because before this, no response was ever heard from Busy regarding what the Twins said in their song.
The deejay, who says he is not interested in an confrontation with anyone, as if he was, he would have probably done that a long time ago, recently returned from a one-month European tour that covered countries such as Russia, France and Germany.
Deejay Blak Ryno, who is accused of assaulting Vybz Kartel business partner Cory Todd, is scheduled to return to Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court on January 20, 2011. The artiste, whose real name is Romaine Anderson is charged with assault occasioning bodily harm and possession of an offensive weapon following an alleged fight with the businessman on September 30 at MegaMart Wholesale Club on Waterloo Road in Kingston.
Todd's wife Shemara, is also to return to court on the said day for reportedly assaulting the entertainer's girlfriend, Aneka McDonald during a second fight at the wholesale.
The matters were set for mention yesterday, but were rescheduled after Blak Ryno and his female companion did not appear. The artiste's attorney, Patrick Peterkin, told the court that his client who was recently involved in a motorcycle accident had a medical appointment.
The accused persons had their bail extended by Senior Magistrate Judith Pusey.
According to the police statement, the entertainer and Todd reportedly got involved in a fight after Anderson reportedly issued death threats to Todd.
During the fight Anderson reportedly pulled a knife at Todd. However, Todd only suffered a bruise to the top section of his back.
The female companions of both men who were present during the altercation reportedly got involved in fight of their own when McDonald reportedly went back inside the supermarket to search for her boyfriend's jewellery after his fight.
It is alleged that Todd's wife attacked her and used her fingers to inflict bruises to McDonald's face and neck.
According to Todd's statement, the entertainer attacked and accused him of not playing his songs in the club — The Building — where Todd is a manager.
The trial involving dancehall deejay Beenie Man who is charged for assaulting LA Lewis, yesterday was delayed when the artiste failed to show up at the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court.
Beenie Man, whose real name is Moses Davis, is charged along with Jeremy Wade, a sound system selector who is popularly known as Rolexx, following an alleged confrontation with the graffiti artiste on June 5.
Both are scheduled to return to court for trial on January 5.
According to police reports LA Lewis was driving along Perkins Boulevard in Kingston when his vehicle scratched the back of Beenie Man's car, an Audi Q7, damaging the vehicle.
It is alleged that Beenie Man became angry and refused to settle the matter with LA Lewis who claimed to have offered to pay the artiste $50,000 for the damage.
An altercation reportedly developed between Beenie Man and LA Lewis in which the graffiti artiste claims he was hit in the face, while Rolexx is said to have gotten involved in the scuffle.
But both men have denied the allegations with Beenie Man pleading not guilty to assault occasioning bodily harm and Rolexx pleading not guilty to assault at common law.
However, yesterday when the case was called up for the start of the trial, Beenie man was absent as a result Resident Magistrate Georgianna Fraser rescheduled the matter.

The political leaders of Caribbean nations, especially, Bruce Golding and others in Jamaica (both JLP and PNP) must begin to change their levels of thinking as they relate to governing.
The leadership styles continue to kindle the flames of lawlessness and civil disobedience in the island. Bruce Golding must stop the perception that criminals are cuddled by lawmakers. Bruce Golding and others, including Portia Simpson, must begin to teach some citizens who are ill-informed that it is the inalienable right of every citizen to vote for any political party that individual chooses.
For too long violence and disrespect of the country's laws have been perpetrated because our political leaders by their words and/or their deeds have encouraged such actions.
The many law-abiding citizens of Jamaica who want to live in peace and enjoy their prosperity cannot do so without great fear of losing their lives, their children's lives, and their friends' lives or encounter other acts of crimes against them.
It is time for our leaders (JLP and PNP) to demonstrate that aiding and abetting criminals is not a law of the country.
It is time for our leaders (JLP and PNP) to focus on the ills which afflict the country and fix them. The poverty and inadequacies which exist in Jamaica are life issues which should be comprehensively addressed by the leaders of both major political parties (JLP and PNP).
These leaders must turn away from the governing styles of the 50's, 60's, 70's, and 80's. The situations that existed during the leaderships of Bustamante, Manley, Sangster, Shearer, Manley, Seaga, Patterson, and Simpson must not continue.
Times have changed globally, we are in the internet age, so why is it that our current leaders in Jamaica are still stuck in the era of counter productiveness. As a nation we have made tremendous strides in many sectors. We have improved our educational institutions and also increased them in reasonable numbers.
We have improved our basic infrastructure (roads, utilities, and communications), our commerce, and our relationships with other nations. However, there is a lot more work that needs to be done.
The work that needs to be done will take the efforts of all Jamaicans at home and abroad. These efforts need the spirit of unity and trust of our fellow Jamaican brothers and sisters in order for them to be effective. The effectiveness of unity and trust cannot be achieved by continuing partisan politics as it exists in Jamaica. Unity and trust cannot be attained if we disrespect the civil rights of another person. Unity and trust will not be garnered if we rob, rape, murder, extort, and malign the lives of other citizens.
I am using this forum to express some of my concerns about my beloved Jamaica. I hope that others will express their concerns also. I believe that it is by demonstrating our will to incite change that change happens.
One Love, Let's Come Together and be Allright.

Jamaican dancehall stars Adijah Palmer otherwise called Vybz Kartel and David Brooks otherwise called Movado have been listed as persons of interest by the St. Andrew North Police.
According to a release from the police investigators want to interview Palmer and Brooks on a number of recent incidents in the Division.

Following his recent brush with death on Waltham Park Road in Kingston over the Heroes Weekend, where he and a friend was knocked off their motorbike by a motorist that swerved in an effort to avoid hitting a man said to be of unsound mind; Dancehall artiste Blak Ryno said he would like apologise to his European fans for the postponement of his upcoming European tour slated to begin on November 23 in the United Kingdom.
However following a series of medical examinations to determine the extent of his head injury the ‘See You Again’ singer is expected to make a full recovery and fans across the European continent will get their chance to see the artiste up close in February 2011 when the tour officially commences making stops in the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Netherland, France, Germany and Italy over a three weeks timeline.
Bounty Killer's legal troubles continue.
Controversial deejay appeared before the High Court Division of the gun court Monday morning to answer charges of assault, unlawful wounding and illegal possession of a firearm.
A new court date has been set for January 27, 2011 after claims that bounty’s co defendant was stranded in st Lucia due to the inclement weather.
All this is stemming from an altercation with an off-duty policeman in New Kingston in September 2007.
It is alleged that on the day in question, a motor vehicle was blocking the road, when the policeman asked Bounty Killer and his followers to clear the road.
Allegations are that the policeman was assaulted and Killer allegedly threatened him with a gun.
Meanwhile, this month, Bounty Killer is to face the court on two separate charges. On November 8, Killer is to face charges for ganja possession while on November 9 his most recent domestic abuse case alleging that he used a hammer to beat his girlfriend is set for mention.
The Miss World contest was mired in controversy today amid claims that the hot favourite was frozen out because of a diplomatic feud.
American teenager Alexandria Mills was crowned the winner of the 60th anniversary beauty contest on Saturday.
But the 18-year-old Miss USA’s celebrations were tainted by claims that her biggest rival, Miss Norway, was cheated out of the title by the competition’s Chinese hosts.
The stunning 23-year-old Norwegian university graduate Mariann Birkedal - the odds on favourite - didn’t even make the top five.
According to reports, observers speculated the judges bowed to pressure from Beijing, which is involved in a bitter international spat with Norway.
China is said to be furious after the Oslo-based Nobel Peace Prize committee awarded the coveted prize to the jailed Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo earlier this month.
Before the results were announced, Miss Norway was the shortest-priced favourite in Miss World history at 6/5, while Miss USA lagged behind at 7/1. Kathrine Sorland, a Norwegian TV personality who came fourth in Miss World 2002, said she believed China’s fury at the Nobel Peace Prize committee had influenced the outcome.
‘I was sure she would win,’ she said. ‘They must have mixed politics and business. Without jumping to conclusions I would stress that Miss World competitions have always been political. And the relations between China and Norway are very strained at the moment.’
Miss Birkedal herself was more cautious on whether she had been cheated of the crown.

The SuperPlus chain has further rationalised its operations with the sale of another supermarket.
The branch in Portmore Pines, St. Catherine has been sold to Empire Supermarket.
The deal was inked a week ago.
Chief Executive Officer of SuperPlus, Richard Chen reported on Radio Jamaica that “An opportunity came up, there were persons that were interested and we thought it was an opportune time. From time to time as businesses look at their strategies, they divest themselves of operations and locations and from time to time take on new ones,” Mr. Chen said.
The number of SuperPlus supermarkets still in operation has now been reduced from just over 20 to nine.

Yardflex has been checking out some rumours regarding the energy drink and alcohol. Unofficially we have heard about at least six deaths where rum and energy drinks have been mixed.
The latest we are now seeing is a report in the yesterday’s Star where two men died under suspicious circumstances in Lawrence Tavern after attending a drink up event.
According to the story the men were among a group at the event when they became ill after drinking the mixture. Two of the men are said to have died later while another was hospitalised. Another man is said to have been ill after the event.
Mixing energy drink with rum is living dangerously.
Popular comedian Jookie Jam has reasons to be thanking his lucky stars are he was freed in the Magistrate's Court yesterday.
The comedian, whose real name is Stead Flash, was told by Resident Magistrate Simone Maddix that the Crown failed in its bid to have a prima facie case against him
Flash's lawyer, Christopher Townsend, agreed and told the court that from the onset his client was innocent.
The comedian's appearance in court stems from an incident where persons claimed to have paid over US$60,000 ($5,160,000) to a company in which he was a director. He was charged along with Dericia Smith and Sophia Wilson who are to return to court on December 7.
The court learnt that in September 2009, money was paid to Nu Kru Recruitment Company in Portmore, St Catherine, by persons seeking jobs. It is alleged that they did not get any jobs and the money was not returned.
Still it is hard when people spend their money in that way and there is nothing to show.
Entertainer Chino is the latest victim to experience identity theft.
This caused widespread concern, after an email making rounds suggested that the BIGSHIP Singjay is stuck in the UK after losing his credit cards and passport and is desperately in need of funds.
Chino who reveals that he’s not such predicament, is warning fans, friends and the media that the claims are fraudulent. The Sinjay says that his email account was hacked and it is all a scam.
Dancehall recording artiste Blak Ryno has becoming the latest entertainer to fall victim to a spate of motorbike accident, following similar encounters weeks earlier by fellow dancehall and reggae acts, Gyptian, Mavado and Nitty Kutchie.
The incident unfolded over the Heroes Weekend when Ryno (the pillion) and a friend were riding in the vicinity of Waltham Park Road and was hit off the motorbike by a car travelling in the opposite direction after the driver was forced to swerve when a man said to be of unsound mind suddenly walk out into the driver’s path.
Blak Ryno was flung from the bike hitting his head against the asphalt while the rider suffered some minor bruises.
The entertainer was rushed to the Medical Associates Hospital but was minutes later taken to another facility to be X-Rayed. Miraculously the deejay escaped with only a gash to the side of his head but was ordered by the doctor to stay at home and recuperate.
“Mi haffi gives thanks to Father GOD, because it coulda worse. Mi alright and nobody never dead but me just a beg the authorities to do something about the mad people them on the streets.”
If we had any doubts that our Usain Bolt is a superstar it’s all gone now. Wow, one woman after another keep coming out of the works about her romance with him.
The latest, Rebeckah Passley, made quite a big thing in the Sun tabloid in the United Kingdom on Tuesday that Usain was involved in a relationship before bolting away and leaving her behind.
"I feel heartbroken. He's the best lover I've ever had. Usain might be quick on the track but he takes his time in bed. He knows how to treat a woman," she is reported as saying in the article.
Passley said that they were dating for about a year before their relationship hit the rocks after rumours started circulating that he was dating other women.
"Girls were popping up in the press claiming they were dating him. He told me it was all nonsense. But it did have a bad effect on our relationship and we have had no contact for a month," she said.
Passley is said to have gone to a track meet at Crystal Palace, near her home, when Bolt got his manager to invite her to a team party in West Ham. She is said to have shared the back seat of Bolt's chauffeured car.
The heartbroken Passley said he loves dominoes, hugs and kisses. She also reasoned, "Friends tell me we'll get back together but I'm not sure we will."
We wonder, who’s next on the love train?
US army recruit and dancehall DJ Zumjay is excited after he successfully completed his second tour of duty.

Is this the same Bounty Killer who in and out of court with one abuse charge after another?
Well, Reports are that the troubled dancehall DJ is set to join forces with the UNiTE campaign to end violence against women.
From what we understands under this campaign, the UN collaborates with influential individuals which include entertainers who will assist with their mission to put an end to violence against women in all its forms.
Bounty Killer who has been dragged in the news about numerous accusations of domestic abuse involving a few women was unable to confirm his participation with UNiTE’s campaign.
Bounty Killer is to return to court on November 9 to answer charges regarding his most recent domestic abuse case. While on November 8 the deejay is to face charges for ganja possession.
After a decade or two of carrying hair from flat top kid and plays to cain-row and braid. One would thnk bounty would conclude as a rasta. Despite his ways in handling women, killa has a another long journey to re-trod. It is unfortunate that this had to happen to my Artiste...Bullit.

The motor cyclist Derron Nicholson died when a vehicle driven by Clarke collided with his bike along the Nightingale Grove Road in St. Catherine on August 23.

Well known comedian Pretty Boy Floyd is coming out against the report that he beathis baby mother.
Wasn’t me is the song he is singing as the false assumption was made that he was the one in court. In a comment to the Star the comedian joked that the only way that could have happened is if he was two places at one time –in Jamaica and los Angeles.
Pretty Boy Floyd, born Ludlow Peynado, found himself in a not-so-funny spot after a man who reportedly uses the same alias appeared in the Spanish Town Resident Magistrate's Court in St Catherine, Jamaica and pleaded guilty to assaulting the mother of his child.
"Well, I was in LA (Los Angeles) today so unless I was in court there," he said before interjecting, "But no mi neva deh a no court, a nuh me," he declared to the paper.
"Of course it can affect me because I'm somebody that's in the spotlight. If I was a normal person then it wouldn't be so bad," he added.
He admitted he was aware of the matter and had even been contacted by a number of corporate entities with whom he works, and which were trying to see if there was any truth to reports about him assaulting his baby's mother and ending up in court yesterday.
Checks with the police in Spanish Town found that the man at the centre of the mix-up, Corney Henry, is to be sentenced on December 7.
Both men are of St Catherine addresses in Jamaica.
Well if Tony Rebel’s baby mother was counting on topping up her allotted allowance for the five children aged 10 – 15 for the month to $128,000 then she was in for a big disappointment as the deejay will only pay $88,000 for the month.
Rebel was taken to court by Alicia Lawson the mother of his children.
The case came before the Supreme Court in March and it was reported then that Tony Rebel was paying approximately $88,000 monthly for the five children he has with Lawson. However, it was said that Lawson wanted the amount increased to $128,000 monthly.
The matter was adjourned to other dates and finally came for hearing before Supreme Court judge Lennox Campbell in chambers last week Monday. The judge ordered Tony Rebel to pay $4,400 weekly for each of the five children.
The parents are to pay equal shares for all medical, dental and optical expenses. Tony Rebel is to pay all educational expenses in respect of the children. The maintenance order is to remain in force until each child attains the age of 18. In the event they are attending a tertiary institution, the order will remain in force until they are 23.
The Spanish Town Police station is investigating the stabbing incident of upcoming DJ Tanto Blacks.
According to reports, the quirky DJ was recently stabbed three times in the back by his tenant.
According to reports on Friday, Tanto, went to evict the man from a place he rented where the tenant showed no signs of leaving the premises. An altercation ensued between the two men and it is alleged that the tenant proceeded to stab the DJ in the back.
The alleged assaulter was later arrested and charged and Tanto Blacks was treated and released from hospital.
It’s a sad day in Reggae and Dancehall music when a comment like “no creativity” can be made about it.
In an Observer article Jon Baker, band manager for Jolly’s Boys the mento band that topped the Reggae/Dancehall charts attributed this comment to the business.
In the story he was quoted as saying "We going through a stagnation of creativity in Reggae for the last five years. Dancehall artistes sing about the same old stuff. It has not had anything dynamic to crossover into the mainstream”.
"I don't want you to take this in a non-patriotic way but to look at it fairly. When I got requests to do Reggae festivals and to do Reggae press, I vehemently declined the request," he stated.
"I have watched the genre of Reggae stagnate certainly in the last few years and I have seen the perception of the international market look at reggae and say 'that's cool but that niche or specialist'. If we started to position Jolly Boys as Reggae that's would have immediately put the perception of what they are at a disadvantage."
Wow, honestly though, the beats are mostly the same, the business need some new energies and stop cramming so many songs on one beat!
Dancehall deejay Blak Ryno and his baby mother on Wednesday afternoon was attacked by a close business associate of Vybz Kartel and his female companion while shopping at the Kingston Mega-Mart on Upper Waterloo Road.
The incident unfolded when Blak Ryno was exiting the facility and was confronted by the man who immediately assumed an aggressive posture towards the artiste with the statement “Go S*ck Yuh Mada” and proceeded to shove him, further stating “Weh yuh ago do p*ssy, you know how we thing set pon the Gaza”. Ryno, forced to defend himself got into a physical altercation with the man but it was quickly brought under control by the store’s security detailing.
However the melee did not end there as the irate man and his female companion who were still inside the store then turned on Ryno’s baby mother inflicting several blows to her in the process. Thankfully the quick action of other shoppers and the security team quelled the hostile situation but not without her suffering some minor cut and bruises.
“Dem pull out mi hair, punch me, I got a cut in my face and several scratches” – Ryno’s baby mother exclaimed.
Blak Ryno and his female companion are now at the police station reporting the incident.
The artiste whose given name is Romane Anderson says he doesn’t know why the man and his companion attacked him and his baby mother.
Seet dey now, you know that you have some real spiteful police dough.

We have to say that Bounty women all have one thing in common. When it comes on to suffering a beating at his hands and end up feeling sorry for him - they have that locked.
Yes, the latest victim Racquel Smith requested of the court through her lawyer that the matter be sent to mediation as she is interesting in resuming her relationship with the DJ.
What can we say, the next time she might not get the opportunity to request anything.
Bounty was granted $500,000 bail and was ordered to return to court on November 9.
This morning Smith indicated through her lawyer Terrence Ballentine, to the court that she wanted the matter to be sent to mediation.
Ballentine said his client and Pryce had been together for three years and he had never hit her until the incident earlier this month. He said Smith wanted to continue her relationship with the Deejay.
However, Resident Magistrate Lorna Shelly Williams would have none of it and dismissed the request.
Oh boy, wonder who or what next
Three illegal firearms, including the one which was stolen from the home of Karl Samuda, General Secretary of the governing Jamaica Labour Party, were seized by the police near Linstead in St. Catherine.
The drama which led to the seizure of the firearms started about 10 o'clock Saturday morning, when four gunmen reportedly went to a house in Ewarton where a 13 year old girl was at home.
While there, the men reportedly cooked food.
The girl's parents, who were away, returned and encountered the gunmen who robbed them.
After the robbery, the gunmen went to another house in Rosemount, Linstead about 11:30 Saturday night.
Police who were in the area saw men walking on the train line and they reportedly opened fired at the police.
They police returned the fire and the gunmen ran, leaving behind a bag, which when searched contained the three firearms.
They include the shotgun, belonging to Samuda and two homemade pistols.
Household items were also found in the bag.
Oh well the foolishness continues again. What’s wrong with these women, do they enjoy being beaten?
Bounty Killa is expected to go before the Half-Way-Tree court today to answer to charges of assault.
The trouble dancehall deejay is facing charges of assault after he allegedly used a hammer to beat his girlfriend.
According to a report on Music News the woman who has received 19 stitches and has bruises following the assault may drop the charges. It is still not clear which lawyer will represent Bounty Killa.
Yesterday, Music News reported that his lawyer Linda Wright will only represent the deejay in his cases involving tax and traffic violations.
This is not the first assault charge for Bounty Killa who has been behind bars since Saturday.
Last April, the trouble deejay spent several weeks in police lock-up after he was charged with beating his ex-girlfriend and threatening her while he was at the police station.
Yes, LA a continue to enjoy the spotlight, thanks to the case he has against Beenie Man. The more it put off, the more him name will call up in the paper.
Their case was called up for mention yesterday in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court. Beenie along with selector Rolexx, are both accused of assaulting LA Lewis.
However, yesterday when the case was mentioned in court before Resident Magistrate Judith Pusey, both accused pleaded not guilty to the charges and the matter was set for trial.
Both Beenie Man and Rolexx had their bail extended for them to return for trial in November.
The king of the Dancehall is being represented by Roderick Gordon, while attorney-at-law Charles Ganga-Singh is representing Rolexx.
Well let us see what will happen next.
Yesterday the Internet was abuzz with news that the ‘cool ruler’ Gregory Isaacs had passed on. Yup so much so that Brigadier Jerry had to take to his Facebook and wrote on the wall:
GREETINGS FB FAMILY.....THERE WAS A RUMOR GOING AROUND SINCE SUNDAY MORNING THAT OUR BROTHER GREGORY ISSACS DIED IN HOSPITAL
IN LONDON WHICH WAS REALLY STRESSFUL FOR ME. INSTEAD OF POSTING THAT NEWS TO YOU, I INSTEAD POSTED SOME OF HIS VIDEOS TO EASE THE TENSION I HAD. I DIDN'T FEEL THAT NEGATIVE VIBES BECAUSE I ALWAYS TRUST IN JAH WITH.
The Observer also carried a story with a quote from Copeland Forbes addressing the issue:
I've received e-mails from quite a lot of promoters and well-wishers from all over the world who are very concerned," he added.
"The facts are, he is in the UK doing some medical tests. As you all know, he had some problems with his legs from last year which resulted in cancellation of tours, and in the last 12 months he had a very hectic year travelling all over the globe doing performances," Forbes explained.
"We were suppose to go to Guadeloupe, French West Indies for a festival performance, but while we were in London the pain in his legs started again and it was swollen, and it caused him severe pains whenever he tried to walk on it.
The pains were so severe that we had to cancel him off the Guadeloupe festival and Marcia Griffiths was brought in to fill in for his absence," said Forbes.
"So since he was in London where he had started his medical tests from last year when the problems with his legs started, he decided that he would stay in London and get all his medical tests done... and contrary to what has been going around, he's not in a hospital, he's staying with Linda Smith, our UK representative," he added.
Dancehall deejay Mad Cobra, who is known for his graphic gun lyrics, is giving us the Other Side of the Coin.
The new album he says will feature his soulful side as it describes the pain he feels and will address social issues. During an interview on air, the deejay also used the opportunity to address his graphic delivery of gun lyrics.
Cobra was shot in the chest in his hometown of Portmore on May 1. The deejay who says he’s grateful for life, reflects on what took place the day of the shooting.
Mad Cobra is one of the many entertainers to experience gun violence since the start of the year. His perpetrators are scheduled to return to court on September 29.
Ole time people always say that you must take sleep and mark death and apparently other dancehall artistes are taking no chances where their taxes are concerned.
News has surfaced that the tax departments lines are burning up with call from interested parties wanting to know where they stand.
Yes man, they don’t want to their vehicles to be seized by the tax department or to face that kind of embarrassment.
Well, we hope the Govt put the tax dollars to good use and do something for the entertainment industry.
Seems as if Television Jamaica host Simon Croskill has incurred the wrath of Tanto Blacks manager.
Yup while a guest on his programme Blacks manager felt Simon did not treat him with any professional respect. He told the Star that Simon Crosskill was trying to belittle the artiste.
“Everybody deserves some level of respect but I didn't see the artiste getting any from him. I did not get that level of respect or appreciation that you would show to another person. I was very disgusted.”
"He was comparing him to L.A. Lewis and Shebada. There is a certain level that you don't cross.
So I would like an apology on behalf of the artiste or for him (Crosskill) to acknowledge that he overstepped his boundaries in terms of how he conducted the interview,” ranted Blacks manager.
Well, honestly we have seen some interviews done by Simon and to tell the truth he doesn’t hide his opinion when he is not impressed with the subject. He should remember that he is fishing out info for the public not imparting his opinion.
Can someone tell us what’s the real deal where Fresh Fridays is concerned at the Building.
We have been hearing conflicting reports on why the event was ousted from that location. But to tell the truth it just doesn’t make any sense.
Arif Cooper will now have to find another venue to host the popular event and according to the Building Manager Cory Todd in a story in yesterday’s Star said “All that is happening is that Arif is trying to save himself from embarrassment.
He used my affiliation with my business partner Vybz Kartel to stir up trouble in the business. I'm disappointed with Arif, his acts were despicable and only served to stir up bad vibes."
But then in response Arif said he was informed of Matterhorn's inability to play at the club via a BlackBerry message sent by Todd while he was on air on Friday.
His response to the message, he said was a mere, 'OK, wow.' Minutes later, he said, he received another message stating that he was no longer welcome at the club-based on a decision by Todd and his partner.
What’s our take? Why can’t we all get along!
A wonder why the police yesterday swoop down on Bryan’s Photo Studio in Kingston and arrested a number of people, including the owner son.
Since the incident everybody a wonder what really a gwaan.
Listening to the news yesterday it is reported that the police said “it was a matter of national importance”.
Hmm, stay tuned to Yardflex as we will be keeping you up to date with the latest on this one.
You can imagine how surprised wi be when wi listening news pon the radio yesterday and hear sey veteran broadcaster Bobby Fray deh a one school wid placard him an one nex man a protest over di principal whey di school appoint.
According to the other man, the one that should have been chosen was more than qualified.
No star him coulda use a better means fi get him point across than fit un up a di school with placard.
It is still unclear as to why Mavado’s annual back-to-school treat and memorial concert for his dad ended prematurely on Saturday.
The daytime activities for the children was to facilitate the giving away of school bags, books and other school supplies while the nighttime proceedings was dedicated to the memory of Mavado's Father, Stanford Brooks.
From what we can glean the whole shebang was shut down during the children’s treat that the lawmen intervened, putting a damper on the annual event.
Police is mum on why they did it and in the meantime the only ones who really got their bubbles burst are the kids…oh boy!
We don't know exactly what started the fight between Junior Reid, a member of the peace-loving Rastafarian order and church-going artiste Bounty Killa.
But all we know is that all hell bruk loose at Hot Mondayz when One Blood rolled into the Alliance.
Word is that Junior Reid doubled his fist and unleashed a killa tump in Bounty's stomach. Killa reportedly fired back by crawbing up JR and that is when Alliance henchman, Sawfie got involved -- naturaly.
Yardflex tried in vain to reach the battle-scarred defender of the Warlord for a comment.
A 52-year-old businessman of a Kingston 5 address has been rescued and his alleged kidnappers arrested following intense police work from the Organised Crime Investigation Division (OCID) and the Anti-Gang Special Team.
Police report that the man was kidnapped early Wednesday morning in the Corporate Area and his abductors had demanded a multi million dollar ransom. Following reports to the police, the man was rescued unharmed two days later.
He was found at a house on Little Kew Road in St Andrew.
Two members of the notorious Rat Bat gang were arrested. A third person escaped and is being sought.
Seems that ZJ Liquid’s ban from the air will soon be over.
According to a source, Liquid returns to ZIP FM this week after he was suspended in July for playing an expletive on air.
ZJ Liquid was suspended after he played an unedited version of Andrew and Wada Blood's Beggy Beggy on his 'Fresh 2 Death' segment. The ZJ immediately covered up the blunder by switching to another song, but not before it was noticed by a number of listeners.
Playing an expletive on air is in direct violation of the Broadcasting Commission's rules and regulations.
This was the ZJ's second offence since the start of the year. In February, Liquid was suspended indefinitely for playing an unedited version of Aidonia's Love It. The ZJ returned to air a month later.
A Facebook group, 'Put Zj Liquid back on air' was formed shortly after.
The page currently has over 8,000 fans.
On the page, a number of persons were awaiting confirmation as to when and if the Zip Jock would be back on air.
One person commented, "Jah know me radio all a ketch dust, it nuh tun on back from Liquid stop play pon Zip!"
Another person said, "Zip nuh good again without Liquid ... what happen to 'Fresh to Death Wednesday'... how we ago hear di fresh tunes, bossy, bus di youth! We need fi hear Liquid."
Yardflex just watched an interview with Yendi on Morning Time with Simon and Neville and we have to say that something looks suspicious.
Yes, she had on a ring on her engagement finger and she was doing her best to hide that hand.
Yup, we are not saying she is, but...it would be the smart thing of Asafa Powell to do after all ... other eyes must be on her right now!
Amidst reports of an alleged altercation between popular sound system selector Boom Boom and dancehall deejay Blak Ryno.
The artiste has issued a statement distancing himself from the incident and allegations and it read.
“ It has been brought to my attention that Boom Boom was attacked by a group of men said to be aligned to me at the popular street dance Uptown Mondays, this is rather unfortunate.
Though I was at the event with a few friends on the day in question, it was only for a short period of time and I left the venue long before the melee unfolded and went straight home.
Contrary to rumours, there was absolutely no physical or verbal exchanges between me and Boom Boom. As for the men who allegedly attacked him, neither do I know them nor are they affiliated to me or my camp in any way.
Presently I am focused on rebuilding my career and making good music for the masses. Being involved in verbal or physical confrontation is not the direction I am looking to take my career.”
In closing Blak Ryno whose given name is Romaine Anderson said fans can look out for a video soon and his new single ‘Feel Like Sey’ on the Swaggy Swaggy Rhythm produced by G-Jay Production among other upcoming projects.
Dancehall selector Boom Boom, in a radio interview yesterday, accused members of deejay Blak Ryno’s entourage of beating him badly at Uptown Mondays this week.
According to Boom Boom, who said his injuries sent him to the hospital and has forced the cancellation of some of his shows scheduled for the rest of this week, he was attacked because he did not play a song Ryno had given him while at the popular dance.
“Ryno send me a CD with a song, but I didn’t get to play it and by the time the dance over and I was packing up some bwoy come over to me and start talk.
Then one of them jump me and everything just get nasty,” Boom Bom said.
Taking the high road, he sent a message to Ryno, a former member of Vybz Kartel’s Portmore Empire, that everything was all right, he just wanted back his money that he had paid at the hospital.
The deejay lamented the loss of income as he was forced to cancel a number of engagements during this back-to-school season.
“And a prep school me daughter go…” he added.
Meanwhile, Blak Ryno says he wasn’t at the venue at the time of the incident and he heard about it via a telephone call.
He has apologized for the excesses of his fans and has said he will give back Boom Boom his hospital fe.
“Me and Boob Boom a friend,” Ryno stated.
How dem fi do BOOM BOOM DAT...?
All me can seh is selector work nuh easy yaah man.
What people ned fi understand is that when you see a selctor a play him already have an idea of what he will be playing, give him the chune b4 the night.

Check out fi artiste Ghost case the other day when he appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court on Thursday to answer charges of possession of ganja.
He was fined $100 or 10 days imprisonment after he pleaded guilty to the offence.
The accountant and attorneys for dancehall deejay, Bounty Killa, will be seeking a meeting with the Tax Administration Services Department this week to clarify his tax debt.
Enforcement officials of the Tax Department swooped down on the entertainer's residence at the Oaklands Apartments on Friday and seized two high end motor vehicles, a Range Rover and a Land Cruiser Prado, owned by him.
The Tax Department reported that it seized the vehicles in its bid to recover $12 million in taxes owed by Bounti Killa, whose real name is Rodney Pryce.
However, the entertainer's attorney Linda Wright told RJR News that there is some dispute over the figure.
“They just say he owes $12 million ... we know we had filed (taxes) for the year 2000 but then he taken objection for the year 2001, 2003.
However, the document (that they) left when they seized the vehicle only indicated that he was owing $12 million … we don’t know if this is in penalty, fees and principal, we don’t know for what year,” she said.
“That has to be clarified and his accountant will be meeting with Tax Department tomorrow for some clarification as to what period they’re saying the taxes are owed for because he had paid but had objected to some of them,” Mrs. Wright added.
Reports are that two vehicles belonging to deejay Bounty Killer were this morning seized by the persons affiliated with the Tax Administration Department.
The deejay, whose real name is Rodney Price, was reportedly not at his Oaklands townhouse this morning when police personnel, two wreckers and the tax officers paid a visit sometime after 7:00am.
Residents report that the vehicles -- a black range rover and Lincoln Prado -- were placed on the wreckers and driven out of the complex.
Last month, deejay Elephant Man had his red convertible Benz seized by the same department.
Bounty Killer could not be reached fro comment.
You would think that life is hard nuh hell, without taking up your money and giving it away just like that.
The latest is a story that was carried in the Star warning people to be careful of con men posing as furniture worker and relating a story where one woman fell victim to them.
Come on now, you meet someone at a bus stop claiming that he works at a furniture store and he can give you a great backdoor deal and you take your money and give him. We don’t care what kind of ID he is showing, the odds of him being legit is like 99 to 1.
Cheapness can cost you in the long run. How about shopping around for the best deal? And in any case, he would be stealing to get you that cheap furniture, so you are one of those fostering theft.
We are tired of hearing of the stupid cons that sensible adults are falling for.
Three Miles area of all the places where you find pick pockets, con artists and you only know what, hanging out there.
Please people, hold on tight pon unno money and stop give it away like that.
The daggering thing doan good, cause sometimes it might just cost you your life. According to a report in the paper an eighteen year old lost his life as a result of the wrong alliance.
Seems that he ‘daggered’ his enemy’s woman and ended up being stabbed to death.
Allegations are that he was stabbed and killed while at a river party on Sunday, supposedly over an argument about a girl with whom one of the men was dancing.
The teenager was reportedly stabbed then pronounced dead at the Port Antonio hospital following an altercation with another man while they were patrons at a dance at Rivers View, Rio Grande Valley, in the parish early Sunday morning.
Police sources from the division reported that they have heard the two men were at odds for a while and have had previous run-ins with each other.
Their paths crossed again while at the party and are said to have become involved in a heated argument, after one of the men was seen 'daggering' a female said to be a close friend of the other.
"Investigations are ongoing but nothing is confirmed just yet.
But based on what we have heard so far the two men had been at odds for a while now and things boiled over while they were at the party," a detective corporal from the parish said when contacted yesterday.
"We heard that one saw the other dancing with a woman said to be close to the other and that started the argument. This is one of the arguments we will be looking into."
A 20-year-old who was taken into custody was not charged up to press time last night.
What di hell that we reading in the Star. See it there now, things getting outa control just through we have these rights people breathing dung unno necks. Check out this story and tell us where the cousin rights were in all of this.
According to the Star story the Manchester police are investigating the circumstances surrounding an incident involving a man who was allegedly buggered by his cousin.
Information gathered through the Constabulary Communication Network and police sources from the parish suggest that the incident occurred on August 8, in the Somerset community of the parish.
Investigators were reluctant in giving out the details of the incident, but say the complainant who is in his early 20s reported that he was taken into bushes against his will and buggered by his cousin.
A report was made to the Mandeville CIB.
"We can confirm that such a report was made but it is a very sensitive issue and we are investigating," a corporal from the Mandeville CIB told the paper.
Meanwhile, word of the incident has reached the other sections of the parish and is being hotly discussed.

Zebra lick him head or something? We doan know cause if what we reading in the Star even remotely guh suh, him is one ediot artiste or him must be braver dan anybody else inna Jamaica.
According to the story he was relocated from the Spanish Town lock-up recently after it is alleged that he threw urine on a policeman.
Vassell, who is facing a rape charge in the Spanish Town Resident Magistrate's Court, was reported to have done the act early last week.
Allegations are that the incident occurred after Zebra started to defy the rules of officers on duty at the jail. He is reported to have confronted an officer and then the liquid was thrown on him. The police is reported to have then subdued the accused.
In the meanwhile, the preliminary inquiry in the deejay's rape case starts today in the Spanish Town Resident Magistrate's Court and will continue tomorrow.
Yesterday, Vassell told the court that he was on doctor's treatment as a result of being beaten when the incident took place at the lock- up.
All we can say is dat him lucky dem neva beat him out a di rest a him senses.

Check out some a whey Star sey…According to the Federal Bureau of Prisons website, 31-year-old Davis has been released since April 9, 2010.
An ICE detainer, according to the Immigration Policy Center website immigrationpolicy.org, is a "tool used by ICE and other Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials to identify potentially deportable individuals who are housed in jails or prisons nationwide.
An immigration detainer is an official request from ICE to another law enforcement agency (LEA) - such as a state or local jail - that the LEA notify ICE prior to releasing an individual from local custody so that ICE can arrange to take over custody."
Meanwhile, sources close to Davis said they have not spoken to him but they have heard that the artiste is currently in prison in Philadelphia, United States. There are also speculations that he is in witness protection. There were also other theories that he was in a Philadelphia prison on a different charge.

THREE members of the Adijah 'Vybz Kartel' Palmer entourage are expected to appear in court today to face charges of assault and damage after an alleged airport brawl on Monday afternoon.
Palmer, a popular dancehall musician, was in town to perform at the weekend birthday event of Sebas Bastian, a local events promoter.
Jamaican-born Palmer and his entourage were scheduled to leave Nassau for Kingston at 2.10pm on Monday when police were called to break up a fight in the men's bathroom of the international departure lounge.
Police reports state that several of the offenders "damaged property" and "assaulted a passenger" who was also scheduled to travel on the Air Jamaica flight.
The flight was delayed for several hours because of the altercation."It was a group of them that ganged the guy, but he could only identify three of them.
They were punching him all over. We allowed the ones he could not identify to go," said Assistant Superintendent Dennis Dames, officer-in-charge of the airport police station.The names of the three men in custody were not released up to press time.
ASP Dames said the police were still considering more charges, and would release the names after completing the process.
"The brawl started where you had these Jamaican men, five of them, in the men's bathroom with three Jamaican girls. The complainant wanted to use the bathroom.
Upon entering the bathroom he said 'excuse me' he needs to use the bathroom, 'why are the women in there?' The Jamaican guys attacked him," he said.He had no comment as to why the men and women were in the male bathroom in the first place.The complainant was a Bahamian employee of Spirit Airlines based in the United States.
He opted not to travel on the Air Jamaica flight after the incident. Police reports indicate his injuries were "minor.
"ASP Dames said the airline was responsible for allowing the men who were released from custody to board the flight, even though there were claims that other passengers were "concerned." No Air Jamaica spokesperson could be reached for comment.
"A lot of passengers were agitated that this Jamaican gang were (allowed on the plane). They were kind of afraid of them coming back on the airplane. That was not our call. That was the airline's call," said ASP Dames.

The Public Sector Transformation team has reported that among the current undertakings in Government which have been unnecessarily costing the taxpayers billions of dollars is the fact that dead persons are on the Government’s payroll.
The Public Sector Transformation Unit has reviewed all government agencies and has made suggestions on where there should be staff cuts and mergers.
A key aim of the process, which is being undertaken over an 18-month to two-year period, is to achieve a lowering of the public sector wage bill, in relation to Gross Domestic Product (GDP) to below 10 per cent.
The GDP is the total value of goods and services of a country.

Reggae singer Barbee was booted from Sean Kingston’s Letting Go video featuring rapper Nikki Minaj after playing his leading lady.
It is understood that Barbee may have been cut from the video after Nikki Minaj intervened. So, could this be a battle of the Barbie’s?
From what Yardrlex understands Barbie seemed liked the leading lady in the video and Nikki just could not deal with that.
A video was posted on youtube showing Barbie before the final cut and all we have to say was ‘maad!” The video also generated a lot of comments but it was soon quickly pulled off the site.
What can we say…she must have been reigning on someone’s parade.
Everybody know seh Pamputtae proud a har tickness and har agility, but people, there's more to Pamputtae than that.

Check out this story in the Jamaica Observer. Hmm all we can say is that others should be just as vigilant about their intellectual property.
Brooke Hogan, singer, star of a reality show and daughter of wrestling superstar Hulk Hogan has been sued by local recording/production company Jam 2 Productions, run by the son of veteran producer Hugh 'King Jammy's' James, a release from the company states.
"A lawsuit has been filed in Manhattan, USA against the Sobe Entertainment artiste for failing to compensate or credit Jam 2 Productions, members Jammy James (Jam 2) and Camar Doyles (Flavaunit) who were approached in 2006/2007 for production work on her sophomore album, The Redemption which was released in 2009," the release said
According to Jam 2 business contact, Brian Hugh, Jam 2's brother, Trevor James was affiliated to Hogan's label, Sobe Entertainment and it was he who brought the two entities together.
"Sometime in 2006 Brooke Hogan and her reps from SoBe visited King Jammy's studio in Waterhouse where a verbal agreement was made that Jam 2 would work on a project with Hogan for which they would be paid and would also get credit on the album, but none of that was done," Hughes explained to the Observer via telephone.
According to the release, the production also included a 2001 song performed and written by Camar Doyles aka Flavaunit entitled Come On, Come, On.
"Brooke and Sobe used the song, but changed it up, adding her own lyrics, and changing the name of the song to Trust Me. Again, Brooke and Sobe said they'd pay and credit Jam 2 Productions, which to this day has not been forthcoming.
"Jam 2 Productions became alerted when the song Trust Me was deleted from their MySpace account claiming a Copyright Infringement.
Jam 2 Productions immediately contacted their lawyer Jon Jekielek in New York who immediately issued two letters to SoBe Entertainment both of which returned unanswered. Mr Jekeilek was then instructed to take full action and on Monday August 2, 2010, a formal lawsuit was issued in court," the Jam 2 release stated.
Hughes told the Observer that Jam 2 has all the relevant material to support their claim that the song is theirs, including the Pro Tools file.
"The Pro Tools file is an important pice of evidence and it tells the history of the recording project," he explained. "The project was recorded overseas, but we have kept our files in order," Hughes added.
Jam 2 is claiming US$200,000, including punitive damages for failure to pay and credit Jam 2 Productions on the musical composition, melody and lyrics of the song Trust Me which is performed by Brooke Hogan on the album The Redemption.
Hughes admitted that while it was not the norm for producers to work on project without an advance, there are cases when "agreements are worked out".
Usher and Chris Brown are rumored to have hit the studio together while they were in Jamaica this weekend.
The rumors were confirmed by a source close to Usher but no details were given about the collaboration with Chris Brown.
Usher brought out Chris Brown as his guest and both performed at Sumfest in Jamaica.
People are STILL talking about the dance competition that ensued after they took the stage.
Native Jamaican Dancehall artist Elephant man even joined in the dance-off but nobody has officially declared a clear winner yet.
You can view the dance-off in the related video section below.
Company uses singer's image and likeness on T-shirt without permission
There are many enterprises that profit tremendously from merchandizing in various areas of sports, among these giants is Adidas.
There are no barriers or boundaries that hasn’t been penetrated territorially or otherwise by Adidas’s dominance in the world’s sporting market-place globally.
Even The Blackheart Man, Bunny Wailer surviving member of the Bob Marley And The Wailers fame, supports Adidas by purchasing and wearing Adidas sportsware during all the years of his sporting experience and up until this present time, especially in the sport of soccer.
However, there has been a violation of the privacy of Bunny Wailer. A photograph of Bunny Wailer playing soccer in the privacy of his home in the mountains, was used by Solomonic Productions on an album cover titled “Bunny Wailer Sings The Wailers” (see album) in 1980.
In later years, the full image of said photograph was first seen on an unauthorized reproduction on T-shirt with the logo, trademark and trade name Adidas incorporated. This action by Adidas is illegal and a violation of Bunny Wailers rights and privileges incorporated in said photograph and which does not use the name of the singer.
For over 15 years Adidas has sold and withheld to themselves all the profits derived from the returns from the exploitation of the illegal Bunny Wailer product globally, beginning from in the late 80’s up until 2008.
On two separate occasions, it was brought to the attention of Bunny Wailer, but he could not have addressed the matter based on certain circumstances. An approach was made in writing to Adidas by Solomonic Productions’ on behalf of Bunny Wailer in accordance with the discovery of piracy.
Adidas’s negative and disappointing response to Solomonic Productions letter, was passed on to Bunny Wailers legal representative.
The lawyer in response to Adidas’s letter to Solomonic Productions’ pointed out the violations and damages done to Bunny Wailer in accordance with the illegal exploitation of his image and likeness.
The lawyer therefore, introduced a method and means of correcting the abuse in an appropriate and civilized manner, which was ignored and dismissed by Adidas, continuing the demonstration of their selfishness, disrespect and disregard for justice and fair play.
Bunny Wailer is therefore faithfully depending and relying upon the unified power of support from the ever loving Reggae and Bunny Wailer fans, friends, family and populace globally, to rally along with Reggae’s Living Legend in this legal claim and battle for justice from the world sporting giant Adidas.
“LET JUSTICE REIGN”
Imagine we come cross a story in di Observer business section and we shock so till.
You know that even though Bank of Jamaica (BOJ) has reduced the reserve requirements for commercial banks, a new kind of banking fee is making customers pay for having too little money in their accounts.
According to the story the two largest commercial banks in Jamaica by branch network charge depositors a fee for balances below a certain amount.
Scotiabank charges $150 per month for balances below $5,000, while the National Commercial Bank (NCB) charges $50 per month for balances below $2,000.
Estimates are that up to 60 per cent of the deposits in commercial banks are below $5,000.
Now, the only thing we have to say to savers is this, if you find that you nuh have no money to bank and you have below those two figures quoted.
Instead of losing $50 and $150 monthly until there’s nothing left in the book. Close the account and open one with the credit union instead and forget bout di bank dem star.
From now on more of my money will be going into the credit union, cause at the end of the day, we looking for the banks to come up with more fees to dig into your savings.
• Portland mada woman pulls nail out of Sugar’s ‘balls’
There is absolutely no doubt that Lincoln ‘Sugar’ Minott was an icon in Reggae/Dancehall music.
The singer passed away on Saturday, July 10, at the University Hospital of the West Indies and even as family await the autopsy report there have been ‘other reports’ regarding the cause of death of the great man, who also had a heart condition.
Yardflex sources close to Sugar have revealed that in the week leading up to his death, Sugar had reported feeling unwell and had been carried to a highly respect “mada woman” in Portland for healing.
Reports are that the obeah woman freed up Sugar by pulling a nail, a half a CD and ring from various parts of his body. Immediately after this “surgery” was performed, Sugar declared that he was feeling much better, only to take ill on his way back to Kingston and died two days later.
“Bwoy, you waan see, Miss Roberts pull a nail outta Sugar balls and a half a CD outta him head,” the source stated.
He continued, “Even a ring wha' dem couldn't find fi years, Mis Roberts pull it ouuta Sugar side.”
Reports are that Miss Roberts also told Sugar Minott that one of his six baby mothers was trying to 'tie' him and that was one of the reasons for him feeling so sick.
“Afterwards, she give him something to drink and give him a bath and when him leave him seh him feel betta,” the YardFlex source reported.
However, Sugar Minott reportedly fell ill subsequently and had to be hospitalized.
The cause of death is still unknown, but there are reports that his belly became swollen and in some quarters there are speculations that the singer had been poisoned.
Among Sugar Minott’s hits is the song with the line, “More than one woman in my life/And all a dem a fight to be my wife/But I have enough love for everyone…”
Funeral arrangements have not yet been finalized.
Now we know why deejay Vybz Kartel didn’t want to turn himself in to the police. See there now him going to miss Reggae Sumfest and all the other shows he has been booked for.
Yup, Yardflex has it on good authority that he has been detained for another 30 days.
The DJ will have to spend another 30 days behind bars after the authorities extended his five-day detention order.
However, his lawyer Tavares-Finson said that the legal team would be seeking the entertainer's release at the Emergency Powers Review Tribunal set up in the wake of the calling on May 23 of a State of Public Emergency to combat criminals loyal to accused drug lord and former Tivoli Gardens strongman Christopher 'Dudus' Coke.
Vybz Kartel's five-day detention order was scheduled to end today, his lawyer said.
Due to the extension of his detention, the artiste will now miss several bookings, both local and overseas, including the annual summer show Reggae Sumfest in a few weeks time
Just as he’s getting ready to announce where he’ll play the coming years, basketball superstar, LeBron James, and his mother, Gloria James, are being sued for a whole-lot-of money by some guy who claims to be the b-ball super star’s biological father.
According to TMZ, the man says he attempted to prove that he is LeBron’s biological father, but LeBron and his mother tampered with the evidence to cover it all up … bizarre.
Leicester Bryce Stovell, who is 55-years-old, claims in the lawsuit that he met Gloria in a D.C. bar in 1984 and had unprotected sex the night they met. He later found out she was only 15 at the time and he was 29. Wowzers!
Get this, he isn’t some crazy old man trying to make a buck, at least he doesn’t appear that way. He’s a Princeton graduate who earned a law degree from the University of Chicago! He became the senior legal advisor for the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
The details of the lawsuit are tremendous. He says his memory is recalls him apologizing for a mediocre performance to Gloria that evening!
He also claims that Gloria took her pregnant self back to Ohio but showed back up several months later to inform him she was carrying a boy she named LeBron, but never specified whom the father was.
Stovell says he recalls telling the 15 year-old that if it is his to make sure he plays basketball. That was the last the two were in contact.
In 2007, the educated man contacted Gloria, telling her how he thinks LeBron may be his son, as he was intrigued with how similar he and the basketball player look. After threatening Leicester to stay away from LeBron’s money, a few days later, he claims LeBron agreed to take a DNA test.
Allegedly, the test came back negative, but Leicester became
suspicious of the claim and suspected the Jameses tampered with the test. He says LeBron tampered with it due to pent up anger.
So now he’s suing them for $4 million for fraud, defamation, and misrepresentation. Hmm, his guy just might know what he’s doing.

6 women To Keep Away From Your Man
We can never control the actions of our men. We can never be with them 100 percent of the day and yes there must be elements of trust in every relationship. However! That does not mean that we must be so trusting that we are foolish. Some men are weak. So weak that they sometimes needs assistance in preventing themselves from getting in trouble. This is why there are certain women that you, as his wife/girlfriend/ fiancé, keep him as far away from as possible. There are certain circumstances where you may have no choice but to allow him near her due to the fact that they may work together, or dated once. However, my advice to you is that if you cannot find a way, then you make a way. Having said that, the following are a short list of chicks to keep your man away from.
1. The Low Self Esteem Chick
You know this girl. The girl with self esteem so low that she will do almost anything for attention from a male. It does not matter how minuscule the attention is, she will take it. She is the one that is lacking self love and wants someone to confirm it for her. She needs men to tell her how beautiful and wonderful she is constantly. Sometimes chicks like this are unfortunate enough to rarely receive any male acknowledgment which is why they have to seek it out so desperately. Her antics sometimes appear to be over the top because in essence they are a cry for attention from anyone with a penis.
2. The Sluttish Friend
She is the one chick in your crew of friends who is a sweet heart and would give you her whole paycheck and food stamps if you needed it BUT (there always is a but with people who are too nice) she is a whore. She might also be a border line nymphomaniac. She will sleep with anyone and I do mean anyone. It does not matter to her if he is in a relationship, married, single, your daddy. She could care less about his relationship status and who he fathered. Her only goal is to get hers. She is the chick that will side line hate on you when you guys are at the club and she notices that guys are giving you more attention than her. This enrages her inside but she does not show her annoyance. Instead this is her cue to do some hoe s**t. Like motion for everyone in the group to look at her and then stick an entire popsicle down her throat without gagging then innocently giggle the words “wow, that was cold” . Please ladies, I call upon all of you to pop this chick in the back of her damn head when she commits such debaucherous acts.
3. The Model Chick
I have some leniency with this chick because truth be told, she cannot help that she is gorgeous, or modelesque. Blame God for that one. This chick might be a good person at heart and have no ill intentions towards you or your relationship. The only problem with her is that she is every man’s dream girl and secretly every man fantasizes of boning a model chick. This has nothing to do with her necessarily being prettier than you but more so to do with egoism. It feels good to a man for him to utter the words “I nailed a model”. Why uttering those words is enough to make any strong, young vital man release some man ooze right in his pants legs. Despite her innocence in this, just to prevent temptation on your man’s part, keep these two as far apart as possible…..
4. The Needy/Annoying Ex-Girlfriend
This is your current boo’s ex lady friend. She is the one who had a “special bond” with. So much so that they still keep in contact and remain friends. Which would not be a problem if she did not still depend on him emotionally for comfort. She is the one who will call him crying after she gets laid off from her job or realizes she is in love with a loser who treats her like crap. Yet, she still sees your man as her place of solace and peace. He is the one man in her mind who truly “gets her”. Which is why she will never completely let him go. Secretly she is waiting on him to dump you so she can pounce on him like Beyonce does her leotards. Which is why she needs to get the boot. Or at least have some restrictions put on this chick. For instance, no she cannot call him after a certain time of night. It does not matter how horrible her date was. She better suck it up till the morning.
5. The Golddigger
This wallet muncher is the one who can smell a man with an IRA account from 10 miles away. She has a greyhound nose for mutual funds, and off shoe accounts. She may be someone your man works with but has a lower level position. Perhaps a secretary, or the cute receptionist he passes every day while coming into the office or his new young and bouncy personal assistant that the staffing agency sent over. Her subservient position matters not to her. She is not there to pursue her own career achievements and success. She has an agenda of the romantic nature. She is there to find a husband. If you are fortunate enough to have a man with some green backs then keep this heffa far away! I guarantee you she will do whatever it takes to try to get him to sleep with her. She has a plan. Part of that plan is to seduce your man, get him to leave you, and ultimately either have him impregnate her or have a pre-nup free marriage. She does not care about this man at all. She cares about his wallet and all roads leading to it. I guarantee you that she would not stay with him longer than the time required to receive the biggest divorce settlement. She is in it to win it and her financial security is the prize. Muff her hard in the face and tell her to keep it moving.
6. The Sex Kitten
She is similar to the sluttish friend and the low self esteem chick but different in the way that she is much more self aware. Her actions do not come from a place of inferiority, self consciousness, or pure nymphomania. See, she realizes that she has nothing to offer a man but her body. She has little to no personality, she isn’t the brightest bulb in the room. She might have been told these things all her life which is why now she focuses all her energies into increasing/maintaining her looks. She has nothing else to offer. Nothing . Not only does she realize this, she accepts it! She embraces her honey pot and treats it like a golden muffin. She also knows all men’s weakness. Sex. So, she purposely and boldly, uses sex to seduce men. She is the one who might be working anywhere! Anywhere! Even a Starbucks and will be the only barista with her blouse unbuttoned so far down that you can just make out the her sexy pink Victoria Secret bra. Pretty isn’t it? Yeah it is and your man will think so too as he is unsnapping it with his mouth. Bottom line. He needs to find a new Starbucks to go to.
But really and truly, wi can believe sey di Star really gi LA Lewis front page story pon him fool fool song. Wi woan even waste fi wi and talk bout it, all wi a do is gi yuh some a di comment dem pon Youtube under him video.

Dancehall fashionista Michelle Downer, aka D’Angel has once again hit the television screen, this time as the new spokeswoman for Access Financial Limited.
The television commercial released this week features her endorsing the company’s wide array of products and services while giving her own testimony and encouraging other to become a part of the growing financial institution.
Access Financial Services Limited is a provider of small and micro business and personal loans. Established in 2000, Access now operates from seven locations in Kingston, Morant Bay, Portmore, Spanish Town, Mandeville, Montego Bay and Ocho Rios.
According to the company’s Management, “Our vision is to provide financial solutions for every Jamaican with a mission to provide our customers with innovative financial solutions and unparalleled customer service, through a tailored range of products.”
And it was with this mindset that D’Angel was chosen to represent the company in an official capacity. She also endorses other brands locally including Digicel Jamaica, Coke Zero and G-Force.

Today, Father’s Day many sperm donors will be bigging up their chests and taking credit for a job they have no business celebrating.
It is disgusting the amount of children out there that are not being supported by these bums who are claiming the right to fatherhood.
The list could go on and on of the many single mothers out there who are juggling to make two ends meet, just so they can give their children a good education.
Then there are those who are trying their luck through the court system, to see if they can even get a stipend from the no good men who fathered their children.
It is our hope that today, will make some of these donors look into themselves and realize that they are badly lacking, and start to do something about it.
Anyone can father a child, but it takes something special to be a good dad.
It is a shame to hear men bragging about the many kids they have, but you don’t see them making an effort to spend quality time, or effectively take care of them.
Thumbs down to these dead beat dads.

As the Dudus saga plays itself out in Kingston, two of the questions that remain unanswered are 'why is the United States pushing so hard?' and 'why now?'.
The world is full of dons and drug lords, not to mention the fact that the American plate is full with wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and a billion Muslims who are being encouraged to attack anywhere at anytime. You would think that they had more immediate things to concentrate on.
Yet they continued to poke and push, treating every Jamaican that went through U.S. customs like a criminal, openly questioned the personal honesty of the Prime Minister Bruce Golding and even suggested that the Jamaican Labour Party were in violation of their mandate to govern Jamaica.
In fact, the Americans haven't even got an Ambassador to Jamaica anymore. Obama has left the position open, a serious diplomatic slap in the face. All of this tension is for the Don of Tivoli Gardens? Something isn't right. Dudus just isn't that big of a problem.
The idea that outside interests have manipulated the situation for a long time begins to form when you question the truth of what we are being told.
For two years now Dudus has had an excellent run, controlling the docks in Kingston (on Tivoli Gardens turf, and the true value of the constituency) with his buddies running the government.
He has grown more powerful than ever before, with so much money that he doesn't have to rely on politicians for anything.
In the old days back in the 1970's, when the street gangs were first created by the political parties, they had to get their weapons and cash from the JLP or the PNP, but since the cocaine business showed up, that relationship has slowly turned full circle. Now the politicians need the gangs to control the vote, but the gangs don't need the politicians for support. They have become an independent power.
The outside control in this is that the international cocaine business is not run by Jamaicans. Nobody manufactures coke on the island, it all comes in from South America, mostly Colombia.
Somebody else determines how much of their product is moved through Jamaica, which in turn determines how much money ends up in the hands of the gangs.
Dudus is more powerful than ever before because whoever is controlling The Business decided that he would make him powerful. In fact, it looks like they wanted him to become a 'threat to national security', and be such a handful that outside military assistance might be necessary.
Since the Iran-Contra hearings in the United States in the early 1980's, the world has known that the biggest player in the illegal drug business is the U.S. military.
The enormous wealth involved is enough to weaponize entire armies of 'insurgents', which are then used to destabilize any country they choose. They have the best killers, the best weapons and the best intelligence, and it's all in cash.
No records. There are American military troops on the ground in Colombia and Afghanistan, by far the largest producers of cocaine and heroine respectively. This is no accident.
So it isn't a stretch to consider the idea that growing Dudus into a serious problem was a manipulation that was within the control of U.S. interests.
By why flare it up now, and why so hard? Why would the United States want Jamaica to descend into chaos now?
One idea that comes to mind is oil.
Try this one on for size - although Jamaica has never produced a single drop of oil, has no wells, no rigs, no infrastructure, the Minister of Mining and Energy, James Robertson, spent March, 2010 in England, and April, 2010 in the United States, presenting 'Jamaica's Second Formal Licensing Round 2010', billed as 'New Prospects, New Opportunities', to the Geological Society of England and the American Association of Petroleum Geologists. The agendas for these meetings are on the Petroleum Corporation of Jamaica's website.
He reviewed the new seismic data just before the first coffee break at 10:00 am, and the bid procedures info around 11:30, just before the lunch break, and in between talked about the investment climate in Jamaica. He was in New Orleans during the second week of April, and was in Texas at the end of the month.
By May 22nd, just three weeks after showing all of this data to the oil executives in the States, Jamaica found itself suddenly on the verge of crisis, and American military personnel were seen landing at Manley International in Kingston. The next day, May 23rd, the Prime Minister of Jamaica, Bruce Golding, went on national television to declare a state of emergency.
Add to this the fact that the Government of Jamaica signed a new $1.27 billion US '27 Month Standby Agreement' with the International Monetary Fund for balance of payment support in February, 2010, and a different set of motivators enter the picture.
Less than a month later the Jamaican Minister of Mining and Energy is out pimping a non-existent oil industry to England (controls the IMF) and the United States (controls the World Bank).
The per capita debt burden of Jamaica is the 4th highest in the world. Over 50% of the Capital Expense Budget goes to servicing the debt.
PM Golding has an impossible situation on his hands - he has to somehow find a way to impose financial discipline enough to keep up with the payments, but he has no way to build economy with what he has now. A Jamaican oil industry would help him out big time.
However, the real trick is going to be the fine print of that IMF restructuring agreement.
This same ploy was used on Argentina to force them to sell off State owned assets to raise the cash to pay the debt, which ended up with a Spanish oil company, Resopl YPF (odd in the fact that Spain has no oil, but is really a front for BP), owning all of the rights to Argentina's oil.
Later it was discovered that there are reserves of around 500 billion barrels just off the coast of the Falkland Islands. Argentina does not own it's oil because of IMF debt restructuring rules.
So in February Jamaica signs a new IMF debt restructuring package, and in March the Mining and Energy Minister is in England presenting new seismic data and bidding instructions on an industry that doesn't exist, and in April he's doing the same thing in the United States, which is about the time the Deep Horizon oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico exploded.
Three weeks into May, Kingston has been transformed into a war zone by unrelenting and unexplained American pressure, which includes American military on the ground.
Hmmm. Three weeks after showing the data to the Americans, there are armed U.S. troops on the ground in the capital city.
The Deep Horizon might have something to do with that.
One of the facts that CNN doesn't talk about much is that BP was drilling way, way deeper than anybody knew. The deepest working oil well on earth is around 20,000 feet, but six months ago the Deep Horizon drilling tapped 35,000 feet when they had some sort of 'catastrophic event', which ended when they sealed it up and left things alone.
They were drilling again at 30,000 feet when the explosion happened. Outside of the rule breaking, they proved that the technology exists to go almost twice as deep as any working well, which means that they can now access oil that was once thought to be unattainable, in places that have never produced oil before.
At the end of 2008, Cuba announced to the world that it was sitting on 20 billion barrels of oil, the 12th largest deposits among countries, and that it was involved in developing it with Venezuela, Russia, Spain, Norway and India. Cuba is about 70 miles from Jamaica.
If you stand on the top of the Blue Mountains and look north, you can see the lights in Cuba.
If they have oil that deep, you can bet that Jamaica has oil that deep, and Haiti, and the Domincan Republic.
That earthquake in Haiti last January was suspicious from the start, but the 'over the top' response from the United States might now make sense.
The American military controls Haiti. The foreign assistance was an army of occupation. This week they landed in Jamaica.
The bidding process for the contracts to develop these new Jamaican oil fields are in play right now.
An armed foreign military in the middle of your capital city is a very powerful negotiating tool, and that brand new $1.27 billion IMF loan restructuring came with some nasty conditions, and that runaway well is pumping out an enormous amount of oil, which is going to raise a few questions about just how much oil is down that deep and when can the rest of the world start drilling for it?
Jamaica needs an oil industry before it can sell it to the Americans to pay off the debt.
That's why the IMF and the World bank were created to begin with, to manipulate poor countries into such an enormous debt load that they would have to sell off their natural resources and utilities to pay it. This is the plan in action.
The cat jumped out of the bag before the deal was done when that well exploded, but now it's living proof of the size of the discovery, which is apparently big enough to destroy all life on the planet if BP can't figure a way to shut it down. That's a lot of oil. America wants to wrap this one up fast.
For 600 years they've taken all of the wealth from sugarcane and fruit. For the past 70 years they've taken all of the wealth from bauxite and alumina. For the past 40 years they've taken all of the wealth from tourism.
Now more money is in play than all of that combined. Black Gold. Texas Tea. The Devil's Blood.
One of the largest oil deposits ever discovered.
This whole Dudus soap opera is really just a manipulation to create a situation where America can get their hands on Jamaican oil, which most Jamaicans don't even know about.
If America is involved, you know it's about money.
The only solution is probably impossible. Every single Jamaican has to ask themselves if they love Jamaica enough to make peace with each other. This attack is on Jamaica, not Jamaicans.
They are just the victims, but the oil the Americans want is as much a part of the island as the snow white sand, the swaying palm trees, the spectacular ganja or the incredible reggae.
This trick works only if Jamaicans battle with each other.
If America can somehow manage this flare up to get a military presence on the island, they will control the oil.
The only path out is for each person to raise his spiritual consciousness to the point where they are prepared to forgive and make peace with their brothers and sisters.
Only Jamaicans can do what is necessary.
They are the living, breathing soul of Jamaica, and it is up to them to stand as one and shout out 'No More!'. If they don't then Babylon will crush them down like never before.
This isn't about JLP, and PNP, and Posse's, and Matthew's Lane, or Rema, or Tivoli Gardens, or Dudus, or running the docks, or selling cocaine. It's about manipulating all of that so Jamaicans see each other as the enemy, and keep warring. It's about Babylon stealing the Big Money while Jamaicans fight like dogs over the Little Money. There are at least 50 Garrisons in Jamaica, with 16 in Spanish Town alone.
There are around 20 Posse's affiliated with the JLP, maybe 30 affiliated with the PNP, and at least 30 Posse's that are 'unaligned' and can be hired when needed. It's an unstable combination that is designed to break down and destroy.
Dudus and the others like him have been played like a piano. They are the perfect excuse for American military intervention, 'one of the world's most powerful drug lords', according to CNN ...over and over and over again. The reality is that the DEA estimates the total cocaine volume through Jamaica each year at 100 metric tonnes, which is worth $25,000 per kilo if it's sold in North America. About $2.5 billion US. The estimated world total consumption of illegal drugs is $400 billion a year. The cocaine going through Jamaica is worth about half of one percent of the market. Nobody in Jamaica is in the top 200, let alone one of the most powerful.
The oil deal can alleviate all of the debt, all of the poverty, all of the illiteracy, all of the hunger, for every Jamaican on the island ...forever.
The palace that Jamaica was intended to be can be built, but Bablyon knows it, and has no interest in seeing the island become strong and independent.
The only way out of this trap is peace. How's that for a Babylon trick?
This could also be the work of Jah, forcing the right kind of threat into action so that the spiritual consciousness of every Jamaican shakes itself awake and realizes that they are blessed to be born at this time, that they are warriors who have been forced to endure the humiliations of poverty and oppression so that when the time came they had a voice and were aware, and would raise their game to the level required to finally free themselves.
Right now might be the most pivotal time in the entire history of Jamaica. Not 1834 and the end of slavery, not 1962 and Independence, not 1981 with the death of the Prophet Robert Marley, but 2010 and the discovery of oil, the point in time the future generations of Jamaican children will always remember as either the greatest of achievements or the worst of failures, when their parents and grandparents faced the demon straight on and decided what the future of Jamaica would be.
Simply put, are Jamaicans strong enough to forgive each other the past, in return for a better future? If they can, they win BIG. More wealth than anyone ever thought possible.
If they can't, then their children, and their children, and their children, will be doomed to the same vicious cycle of poverty, violence and oppression.
Are Jamaicans strong enough to fix this? Do they love their children enough to accept the responsibility to give up their claim to vengeance, so that their children can live free of the burden?
It's all on the line right now. That's why America is pushing so hard.
On May 25th, a Jamaican born Congresswoman in the United States, Yvetee Clark, was on the front pages in both countries, saying that she was going to seek the help of the U.S. State Department to restore peace and stability in Jamaica.
A State of Emergency had been declared for less than 48 hours and already 'Jamaica's best friend in the U.S. Congress' was calling for the release of American soldiers on Jamaican soil to kill Jamaicans. Nice.
We are looking at the beginning of an American military occupation of Jamaica.
Once they get control of the oil and begin to invest billions to develop it, the term 'Strategic Resource' will apply, which also means 'vital to U.S. national security interests', which will require U.S. military bases to protect it. Think Iraq.
This is part of the militarization of the Caribbean. It started in Haiti after the earthquake in January and it has reached Jamaica by May.
With WWIII looming in the Middle East, America is going to need new sources of oil, and with the Russians, Spanish, Venezuelans, Norwegians and India already active off of the coast of Cuba, they are playing catch up in Jamaica.
What is at stake is enormous - a change in the balance of power among the nations of the world. Done right, Jamaica will rise up. Done wrong, Jamaica will drop to it's knees and beg forever.
With that much money in play the corruption of politicians will be child's play. This gambit is for the sovereignty of the country.
It has little or nothing to do with gangs, cocaine, ganja, guns, violence or even Dudus. It is all about oil, soldiers and America taking it all ...again.
In just over a year from Cuba announcing to the world that there are huge oil reserves deep under the Caribbean, events unfold that result in an American military build up on Haiti, the island closest to Cuba.
In less than 30 days since signing the IMF debt restructuring agreement, Jamaica has to present their 'non-existent yet' oil industry to the people who control the IMF and World Bank, and offer a bid process.
In less than 30 days after presenting this data in the United States, the Dudus extradition conflict is escalated and Jamaica is destabilized.
You do the math. What do you think?
Is Dudus just a pawn, nurtured to become the perfect excuse to provide the necessary conditions for the presence of heavily armed American soldiers, on the ground in the capital city at the same time as the most important contracts in the history of Jamaica are open for bidding, immediately after the government restructures a $1.27 billion US debt package with the IMF, who has always used that situation to strip away a country's control of it's own natural resources and utilities, just as the United States is mobilizing to engage in a war with the Middle East and will need to guarantee themselves some new supplies of oil?
Does that sound possible?
Every Jamaican involved in this conflict has to stop fighting if they are going to save their oil wealth. The gangs, the leaders, the constables, the military, the politicians, the people.
America is good at this. They've done it before.
Stop the fighting. Save your oil. Change your world.
Why is America pushing so hard? Look at the timeline.

Mayor Mckenzie was in a tizzy over the fact that his house was raided by the police and added to that searched from top to bottom.
He is even requesting a meeting with the Commissioner of Police. Come on now, even the Prime Minister’s residence should be subjected to a thorough search by the police.
No one is above the law and no one is perfect – no matter what position they hold – whether Bishop, PM, MP they are all infallible.
Had it been the ordinary Jamaican house that was subjected to a search by the police that would have been that and nothing else. So why this big furor over the search.
He came on television stating that he didn’t know why they would think that criminals would be seeking refuge at his place – wow remember that Adams said that the best place to start searching for Dudus was at politician homes!.
An obviously upset Mayor McKenzie told RJR News that his son called him in a panic about 10 o'clock Wednesday morning to report that several police personnel were searching the house.
The Mayor, who hastily left a tour of Tivoli Gardens with Prime Minister Bruce Golding, to see about his house, said the incident left all his family members shaken up.
According to Mr. McKenzie, his family told him that the police personnel informed them that the search was being conducted based on intelligence that guns and gunmen were being harboured at the premises.
“I can't understand why because my place is the last place that anybody would come to seek refuge. I spoke to the Commissioner of Police and he told me one thing and what my family is telling me is something totally different.
“The Commissioner told me that the (police) saw a car which they deemed to be suspicious and because of the concerns, they came to search the car but they searched my entire house, so you can’t be protecting me and then be searching and looking for guns,” Mayor McKenzie said.
He added that the approach of the police personnel who went to his house was less than professional and questioned whether some police officers are abusing powers granted them under the current state of emergency.
“I can't prevent them from coming and searching and I don’t want to give the impression that because I (am a) victim. What I’m saying is that the powers must not be abused to cause embarrassment and I’m convinced that a lot of that is happening.
Well, the search has been done, nothing was found amiss so move on…next to another politician’s house.

Will the self-proclaimed Fluffy Diva, Miss Kitty be the host of the Digicel Rising Stars Chill room, or has Kitty already been put on ice, even before the new season begins?
Kitty herself had confirmed in April that the job was hers and she was all ecstatic about it; now reports have surfaced that the Fluffy Diva will not be seen on the popular talent show aired on TVJ.
But, as the Diva was reported by one paper as saying, “This is all news to me, I have heard nothing of the sort. The producers asked me to do a job and therefore it is up to them if they feel I am no longer what they require...but nobody has said that to me.”
Miss Kitty had been confirmed as the replacement for petite dynamo, Kerie ‘Kiki’ Lewis, who had been doing a fantastic job in the Pepsi Chill Room.
However, there is the feeling that Kiki’s decision to do a tell-all documentary about spending time in a US prison because of drug trafficking charges, led to her dismissal from Digicel Rising Stars.
Kitty is the host the afternoon show on RJR 94Fm, a member of the RJR group under which TVJ falls. She is also a judge on another popular television talent show, Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall.
“Right now, mi sorry seh mi apologise,” is the the passinate feeling from Reggae Queen, the runner-up in Saturday’s finals of the Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall.
The crowd favourite in the competition, Reggae Queen was accused of using expletives inher set and was asked by the organisers of the televised talent competition to apologise. But Black Queen now says she did not use any offensive language and tha the organsiers know exactly what she was going to say, as they had signed off on her set.
“They’re too disgusting … they had already disqualified me in their mind but they still allowed me to vote like I had a chance when they already made up their mind ,” she said angrily.
“But mi understand now why they did it because they want to make it look like I did something wrong.
I did nothing wrong, all they are saying is that my set sounded too vulgar but I never used any expletives, I never cursed, after mi no stupid.
I was leading, mi know say mi win so why would I do that?” said the crowd favourite in the recently concluded Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall.
She explained that the producers of the show were well aware of the content of the lyrics she would use in the clash, and had even suggested that she make changes to particular verses they found too provocative. “They messed up and they are trying to blame me for it,” she said, bluntly.
“We were instructed to do three eight bar verses for the clash, and the people who work behind the scenes had heard my verses and told me to change a line that said ‘face wear out like toilet seat’ to ‘face wear out like car seat’, but now on the night, when I deejayed the part about ‘she swallow Gibraltar like hot tea’ dem beep it out like dem a come try style me and they had heard it before,” she said.
And in a magnanimous display, she offered her congrats to Bumper.
“Bumper gave a good performance, and mi have to congratulate her, she win, but mi feel say dem never give me a fair chance but that is life. Right now, mi ready to move on.”
Reggae Queen is already booked to perform at The Settlement on June 12 at the Kingston Polo Club.
On Sunday night everyone was expecting to hear that Prime Minister Bruce Golding had done the honourable thing and stepped down. Imagine the utter shock and surprise when Samuda faced the press with the words "No apology, no resignation".
I am now of the opinion that this government doesn't have any regard for the people and they take them for puppets where they can do anything and get away with it.
My suggestion is for the country to rise up and demand that the right thing be done. It's time that the people hold the government responsible for the affairs of the country. Until we realise that we are the ones with the power then they will always continue to do a they please.
It's time to let our voices be heard and stop allowing them to browbeat us.
Crime continue to soar with no real solutions, we we have an army that is considered among the best in the world, the police are out of their depths bring out the army and let them take over the troubled spots.
Guess the only time this government will think about doing something about the high crime rate is when the gun start to touch members of their own families - when they start to lose sons and daughters like the ordinary Jamaican.
Hope it never reaches that stage before they find a solution.
A wonder a whey Bruce a guh do now that everybody a call fi him stept down.
It nuh look good at all, cause him is di Prime Minister so him can separate di PM job from di party leader role. JLP inna power and him a di leader fi it.
So him can sanction deal and den sey it neva have nutten fi do with the government. Why dis sound so familiar, whey yuh sey, somebody sey cock mouth kill cock.

Joe grind caught and killed
A man is on the run and a correctional officer dead following a fatal stabbing at Phase One, Seaview Gardens, St Andrew, after the deceased was reportedly caught by the other at the home of his child's mother.
The incident occurred at an area of the community known as 'Vietnam' on Monday.
Dead is Michael Andy, 36, of the community.
Police reports are that Andy visited Eagle Pathway, another section of Phase One, to see his girlfriend around 12:45 a.m. when another man, said to be the woman's ex-boyfriend, turned up.
Police said an argument developed between the two men and a knife was used to stab Andy several times. He later died at the Kingston Public Hospital.
Residents, however, gave a different version of the incident, saying the deceased man was 'Joe Grind'.
They said the alleged attacker, who is being sought by the police, revealed the ordeal before fleeing the community. He reportedly told the residents that he suspected his child's mother and Andy were in a relationship and so he conducted his own investigations.
A source from the Seaview Gardens Police Station admitted to hearing the explanation.
Residents said the man spoke about hiding in the closet on the day of the incident and then met up with Andy when he visited the house.
The incident has since become the hot topic on the lips of residents, some of whom blame the deceased for his own death by claiming he was wrong to go to the house.
"Him should a neva gone there. Di baby daddy nuh live deh eno, but him always deh bout. Di yute should a smarter than that," another resident said.
DJ Face is ready to 'face off' with Lisa Hyper at this year's The Settlement scheduled for June 12, at the Kingston Polo Club.
"Mi talk to Tommy (Thompson) and him prepared to pay me what I want, so mi have to be a part of this show.
Mi nuh fraid a Lisa Hyper, the last stage show mi work wid her inna Negril, mi crush her corn dem wicked and the dancehall world know say mi have it," Face said.
DJ Face said that even though she has not been focusing on clash songs, she is willing to sit down and pen new lyrics to challenge Lisa Hyper.
"Mi ready fi this, mi born ready fi this, G Life to the world," the former Rising Stars finalist declared.
In the meantime, DJ Face said her combination song, Drive It In, featuring Gyptian, was doing well in the overseas markets, especially Japan.
"I am getting a lot of calls from Japan and from Trinidad about the song with Gyppy. It is very popular, we really need to do the video and promote it hard," she said.
DJ Face will be heading to Philadelphia this week to begin the promotion of the stage show called Jeans Out on May 22nd in Philadelphia. After that show, she will be flying to Canada to perform in Toronto and Montreal.

Deejay Mr Lexx is jubilant that his sexual assault case in a New York court has been dismissed, however he will still be required to do three days of community service.
In October last year, the deejay was picked up at a hotel in Queens, NY, after a woman reported that he had forced himself on her.
He was arrested and his travel documents seized, forcing him to remain in the United States while on bail.
At the time of his arrest, his manager, Earlton Clarke had boldly declared that his artiste was innocent and it would be proven.
The arrest came at a point in his career when Mr Lexx was resurfacing and poised to make another breakthrough with two hot singles.
After nearly six months off the dancehall scene, Mr Lexx will have to work double time to get his career on a level.

Who could ever have believed that Fowl would be back in the place and he and Lena British are not together.
While Fowl was away, Lena was waiting ... and waiting ... and waiting. As a matter of fact, we are sure that Ce’cile sang the I’m Waiting song just for Lena.
Then when Fowl made his appearance, Lena took a vacation away from the island. Can’t really say whay that was so, but all we know is that the man himself has been seen at almost every session, always with a buxom browning.
And, we know that Lena friends must have told her, because when Lena returned the other day and step inna di session, she have everybody weak.
That little lace black dress was the ultimate statement and it showed off her gym body to perfection. Well, Lena British was always the fashionista and now she’s opening her own boutique, right upstairs her salon in Central Plaza. We know Lena’s going to get a lot of customers and we wish her all the best.
Maybe she and Spice and D’Angel can have a special link-up, as they are all boutique owners involved in entertainment.
The Express newspaper in Trinidad says that the police in that soca-loving island have attempted to block Jamaican deejay Blak Ryno, -- also known as Ryno Di Stinga – from entering the country, but their plan failed.
Ryno performed at a concert there on Saturday, and reports are that the event was well attended and went very well.
Acting Deputy Commissioner of Police Gilbert Reyes said he had written a letter to National Security Minister Martin Joseph, requesting that Ryno, whose real name is Romaine Anderson, be debarred from entering the country.
The artiste “managed to slip into the country even though the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service had been put on alert to prevent his entry,” Reyes said.
“Apparently by the time the letter reached the Minister, it was too late because he (Anderson) had already arrived in the country and was given clearance (by Immigration officials) to enter,” Reyes is quoted by the newspaper assaying.
Reyes says he is moving to block from entering the island, any regional or international artiste whose music contributes and appears to influence gang-related activity and behaviour.
“We are already trying to deal with that (gang-related activities) and we cannot afford any longer for these artistes to come here with their music, which influences and ignites gang behaviour, which leads to serious crimes being committed.”
And, while he did not name any of Blak Ryno’s songs, the Trinidad cop declared that Ryno’s “music has gang lyrical content and we do not want that here.
Anyone who has that type of lyrical content in their music, we are going to write to the government and ask that they be blocked from entering the country,” Reyes added.
Why people so idle? The whole day Saturday we phone nuh stop ring off with news say Blak Ryno get shot inna Trinidad.
We hear how him and some Trini youth go inna a certain area and nex man try rob dem and end up shoot Ryno.
Fom what we hear, the promoter did haffi deh pon radio a tell people say nutten don’t go so and that Ryno would be performing at the show Saturday night.
Well, the show gwaan good and Ryno should be back in the island by now, safe and sound.
Ryno, just try build some good tune and focus pon you career, cause that is the only thing that can help you to move forward in life right now.
Question: What is going on between D’Angel and Versatile?

Jah Cure found himself on the wrong side of the law again as he was arrested by cops in St Andrew North Police Division for smoking a ganja spliff.

Digicel, Claro, LIME have all been bragging about their various benefits and for the most part there is nothing wrong with that. Customers should have the chance to to hear all the wonderful things as they enjoy the fierce phone servers competitiveness.
Being the owner of a LIME and a Digicel the thought of walkign around with three phones had little appeal in spite of all the adverts going around about the new phone company Claro...but they held my attention with the 'free call to two numbers - one local and one in foreign."
Now there I was thinking that I had a good alternative in international call with at least adding the number I call the most on the list.
I have since purchased a Claro phone with my husband being the only free number on it but must say I feel like I got 'stick up'.
Do you know that Claro's only gives you 21 days to use up the credit you bought? Unlike Digicel which has never given me a reminder on when to use up my credit or I would be unable to make calls (even if credit is still on my phone) Of course LIME does that too but they at least extend it to the month. Kudos to Digi, on this one.
Re the overseas free number, you have to maintain at least $200 on your Claro phone to make that free intl call.
Hmm, see why I bypass the free foreign number.
So all my phone peeps, just want to tell you that the next time you are making a choice, make sure you try to remember to "ask every little thing!"
Kartel’s youtube channel is all about him and a lot of it is about sex. Kartel uses the site to get back at people who made negative comments about his recently released pictures of a youthful browning performing oral sex on him.
“Some people see mi pon de Internet and nuh like the picture dem...some bwoy weh from dem born nuh gyal neva su-k dem d--k yet. But the gal weh dem a f—k a my d--k she a su-k, and mi friend dem also. So all the haters dem weh nuh like it star, you know wah fi do,” he states.
This is filmed in a bedroom, which seems to be the same one in which the sexually explicit photos of Kartel himself were shot and the scene where former Gaza Princess, Lisa Hype shot her infamous picture where she was engaged in oral sex.
“Look at this room, oonu recognize it,” Kartel, with braces on his teeth asks as the video camera roves around the room.
Also taking place in the same room is the music video for the track, Turn ‘N’ Whine, featuring Kartel and a scantily-dressed, constantly-gyrating video vixen.
Reports are that Kartel sent the following message via BlackBerry messenger last night: “Vybz Kartel has a porn movie coming out called Beg you a f--k. Go to (name of website) for a ‘R’ rated trailer.”
Recipients are directed to Kartel’s very own YouTube channel where one can see a teaser of the upcoming release.
Reports are that one scene in the porn movie clearly shows the Teacha having sex with two girls.
Opposition Senator K.D. Knight has been released from hospital after being involved in a motor vehicle accident in St. Elizabeth Sunday.
Mr. Knight was taken to the Black River Hospital for observation.
It is reported that Mr. Knight was returning to Kingston after attending a funeral when his car crashed into another vehicle.
"The vehicle was slightly damaged and he was taken to the hospital just to do some preliminary checks. I spoke to K.D. and he said that everything was ok it was just a minor accident," Mr. Pickersgill said.
Dancehall’s bad boy, and CEO of the Alliance, Bounty Killer, stepped out of jail last Friday and onto hallowed ground Sunday, as he worshipped in church beside mom, Miss Ivy.
Exchanging his legendary “cross, angry miserable” demeanor for “charming, angelic, mannersable”, Rodney Price held his Bible in his hand and participated enthusiastically in praise and worship.
While many of the worshippers at the Agape Christian Tabernacle Church stared at him in awe, Rodney maintained his composure during the service and listened attentively to the evangelists as they encouraged the congregation in committing to the ways of the Lord.
Towards the end of the service, the church leaders held a special prayer and consecration for Rodney right at the altar.
At the end of the service, church-goers and residents of the Gregory Park community crowded the dancehall deejay, some hugging him, others asking for autographs and some young boys just wanting to get their pictures taken with the Warlord.
Controversial deejay Bounty Killer, who has had more than his fair share of court-related woes, in addition to having his US visas revoked recently, was this morning granted bail in the sum of $200,000.00.
The deejay who had been arrested on assault charges, spent close to two weeks in police lock-up as he awaited hearing on the mater.
Bounty had twice been denied bail, even though the complainant, his girlfriend of three years, Kadeem Baker, had told the court that she wanted to drop the charges against her lover.
Meanwhile, in a somewhat ironic twist of event, Baker was charged with creating public mischief and could very well spend the weekend behind bars, perhaps even in the same cell just made vacant by her lover.
Trust me, bwoy the way how tings a run right now, mi have to say that I have started doing some real deep thinking. Yeah man, these days mi stay inna mi space and a hold a meds as a ponder certain things about life and one a dem is “what really is a perfect relationship?”
Thinking about it, a wondering if such a thing exist on earth, are we as women setting ourselves – and men up for what can never happen?
Even the Bible tells you that there is only one perfect person and that is Jesus Christ, so how can we expect mere mortals to live up to this kind of strain?
Don’t ask me what has gotten me on this trend of thought, but if I dig deep enough I suppose I would have to take into consideration some of the failed relationships and the fact that they have been used as a marker for future ones.
We expect our men to treat us like real queens, but be honest do we treat them like kings? Do we just want to lap up their tender treatment as our due but don’t think it is just as important to shower them with the same kind of favour?
Oftentimes we say they disrespect us…and maybe they do. But we need to consider just what ‘disrespect’ is in the first place, it could be because we want to have our own way and he doesn’t oblige then we feel dissed.
No, I am not picking up for the men, I am just seeking something as close to perfection as possible.
With that quest, I have come to the conclusion that the only thing we can do is try for a good compromise, where we meet each other half way and try to achieve that “near perfection” if it is possible.
Is there such a thing as a ‘perfect relationship’?
No, don’t think so, but there is such as a thing as working hard to keep the love, respect and caring going in it.
...if you are used to throwing away your receipts stop! You never know what evidence you are getting rid of. If you thought you had a bad deal in a purchased item, read this story and start making tabs now.
CAC secures millions for disgruntled consumers
The Consumer Affairs Commission (CAC) has secured $22.6 million in refunds and compensation for aggrieved persons between April 2009 and last month.
The CAC handled 2,138 complaints during the period.

Eighty-six percent or 1,834 of the cases were resolved.
During the 12 months just under 50,000 persons were impacted by the Commission's consumer education programme, and the agency conducted surveys to provide updated information on market prices.
The 79 surveys involved grocery, petrol, hardware, textbook and bank charges.

Sunday April 11; Kingston, Jamaica: After seeing hundreds of hopefuls during two open auditions in Montego Bay and Kingston over a week ago, Digicel Rising Stars’ producers have chosen the top six candidates in the race to become the new host of the popular television show.
The chosen six are: Kemesha Bolton, Cameka McRae, Deidre James, Julie Malcolm, Terri-Karelle Reid and Lady Rennae.
The first Digicel Rising Stars’ host hopeful to face an audience will be Kemesha Bolton as she’ll be holding things down at the Clarendon audition in May Pen on Saturday April 11. Kemesha who is from Kingston is a student at Mico University College where she is completing a bachelor’s degree in Primary Education.
Kemesha says she’s excited about facing the Clarendon audience and she’s looking forward to having a great time in May Pen: “I’m definitely looking forward to it, I love television, I love hosting and performing.”
Kemesha says she’s nervous about facing the crowd on Saturday but she has been practicing: “I’m very nervous about the audition but I plan to do my best. I’ve been in front of the mirror everyday practicing, trying to think about the things I love about the show and how I can make them better.”
The next day the Digicel Rising Stars auditions will be in the sunshine city where Cameka McRae will get her chance to shine. Cameka says she’s happy to have been selected: “I’m excited, I just can’t wait to show Jamaica my bubbly personality and that I’m capable of being the next host”.
Cameka who is from Portmore says she doesn’t think that hosting a show in her home town will give her an edge: “I don’t think it will, I don’t think it’s easier either and I would be comfortable hosting in any of the five locations.”
Cameka who is a television producer by profession has a communications degree from Northern Caribbean University.
She is quick to point out that she’s a church girl with spunk who is not afraid to speak her mind: “What you see is what you get. I’m very real. I don't think I'm better than a soul. I like to think I speak my mind most of the time. I’m very creative and I have a wild imagination and I'm not afraid of new things.”
The Digicel Rising Stars team is on the north coast with week two of auditions in Montego Bay and Ocho Rios. The Montego Bay auditions is on Saturday April 17 at the Wexford Hotel and Deidra James will be performing hosting duties. Despite growing up in Kingston, Deidre is no stranger to the north coast as she was born in St.Ann.
Deidre is probably best known for working as a presenter on Fame FM. She says she hopes that experience will help her in the drive to be the next Digicel Rising Stars host: “I've always had an affinity for entertainment, hence my natural drive for the industry… I do have some experience in TV & broadcasting, so that may work to my advantage, hopefully.”
Deidre says she plans to bring lots of fun and excitement to the audition: “I really just want to be myself. I truly enjoy making people happy and making them laugh, even at my own expense, in fact, MOSTLY at my own expense.”
On Sunday April 18 at the Hibiscus Lodge in Ocho Rios, Julie Malcolm will be putting her best hosting skills on the line trying to win over Jamaicans.
Julie who is from Clarendon says she went crazy with excitement when she was told she made it to the top six: “I felt like screaming and rolling on the floor and I actually did. Seriously though, I felt humbled that out of so many qualified applicants; even television presenters that I admire, the judges chose me...wow!...I still have goose pimples.”
Julie says she hopes the experience she’s garnered from teaching for over a decade and entering several competitions helps her shine on the Digicel Rising Stars stage. She’s also banking heavily on her personality to help win over voters: “My warm and bubbly personality enables me to connect with people from varying cultures.”
The final host hopefuls Terri-Karelle Reid and Lady Rennae will take the mic when the Digicel Rising Stars auditions come to Kingston for back to back shows at the Girl Guides Headquarters on April 24 and 25.
Former Miss Jamaica World Terri-Karelle Reid will take control of the Saturday audition and she says she’s looking forward to a big day: “Day one of the Kingston Auditions usually has one of the highest volumes of hopefuls. I plan on being myself: spunky, bubbly, down-to earth.
I think it is very important to have fun with it but also relate to the participants and create a relaxing vibe and a comfortable environment for them so that they can put their best foot forward when facing the judges (which can be very intimidating).”
Terri-Karelle says her reign as Miss Jamaica World in 2005 has given her a platform to showcase her personality and be a public servant which has prepared her for several challenges including this one.
Digicel Rising Stars wraps up Season 7 audition shows with day 2 of the Kingston auditions hosted by Lady Rennae and she can’t wait to see what Kingston has to offer.
Lady Rennae says she thinks she has a good chance of being the next Digicel Rising Stars’ host: “I'm a person who loves music and am a great supporter of Jamaican talent...with all the chaos and excitement that will be taking place in the competition, the auditioners really need someone they can feel comfortable around and the voters want someone real and relatable.”
Lady Rennae points out that she’s been in the media industry since her early teens and now, as a stable presenter on Fame FM and RETV, she says she’s quite comfortable behind the microphone.
Despite coming pretty close the last time Digicel Rising Stars was looking for a new host, she points out that this time things will be different: “Bwoy last time I was so in awe of it all, but this time I'm going to show the Digicel Rising Stars audience and the producers of the show more of Lady Rennae, more of my charisma, versatility, charm, raw talent - and most importantly the professionalism required for a show of this calibre.”
Jamaica will get a chance to see Kemesha Bolton, Cameka McRae, Deidre James, Julie Malcolm, Terri-Karelle Reid and Lady Rennae host Digicel Rising Stars’ auditions when they air on TVJ starting on Sunday June 13. Rising Stars’ fans will then be able to vote and choose who they want to be the new series host.
It’s been four months since reggae singer Buju Banton has been behind bars in Florida awaiting trial on drugs related charges and, for the second time, the trial date has been postponed.
The trial had been scheduled to start April 19, after Banton requested that date. Without explanation, and much to the distress of lawyer David Oscar Markus, who represents Banton, U.S. District Judge James Moody changed it to June 21.
"We really want to go to trial and were ready to go on April 19," Marcus is reported as saying.
Markus filed a motion asking the judge to reconsider the change.
"We have been working very hard to be ready for this date," he wrote. "We have potential witnesses flying in from Jamaica who have made their plans. We have made our flight and hotel plans. We have lawyers on the team flying in from Houston and Washington, DC, who have also made their flight and hotel plan.
"Perhaps most importantly, Mr. Myrie is in custody and wants to go to trial as
soon as possible."
Buju's legions of fans are disappointed with this new date and hope that come June 20, the judge will not issue a new date yet again.
KINGSTON (JIS) — The Ministry of Justice has sought to clarify the the suspension of Senator KD Knight on March 26, 2010 for two sittings of the Senate.
According to a statement from the ministry, the discussion which has taken place has focused primarily on Senator Knight's offensive references to Senator Dorothy Lightbourne, Minister of Justice and Attorney General and discussion as to whether he should be given an opportunity to be heard in regard to his use of offensive language to Senator Lightbourne.
The fact of the matter as recorded in Hansard, is that Senator Knight was directed by the President of the Senate to withdraw the offensive statement, which he refused to do, and instead picked up his papers and walked out of the Senate.
This was the more compelling reason for the disciplinary action taken against Senator Knight.
No amount of opportunity given to Senator Knight to respond could avail him in justifying his gross disrespect to the President of the Senate.
After Bounty Killer girl Kadeem .. yeah, the same tall browning who dem call Hennessey and who related to a next entertainer ... yeah, after she mek police lock up Killer, she now a say she sorry cause she never mean it.

The recent cancellation of the US visas of several prominent Jamaican performers, has inspired international reggae star and SoBe/Danger Zone recording artiste Jah Cure to pen the visa blues and record the track Save Yourself.
It was 12:05 am on April 1, 2010, so Jah Cure naturally assumed the Internet news he was reading about the United States cancelling the visas of several top Jamaican dancehall artistes was an April Fools' Day joke.
He said: "I couldn't believe that the Jamaican government or the US government would violate the privacy rights of citizens and publish their legal names, their birth dates, their actual Jamaican passport numbers and their US Visa Control numbers, I did not believe it."
Sadly, by mid-day on April 1st, the news was official -- the US Embassy in Kingston, Jamaica had cancelled the visas.
While sitting in his living room, Jah Cure said he began to hear the words of his idol Bob Marley singing: "Get Up, Stand Up, Stand Up for Your rights." Cure immediately felt inspired and compelled to go on record, so he headed straight to the studio and recorded Save Yourself as his message to Jamaica and all Caribbean nations.
In the opening lines of the song, Cure exclaims: "You can't change my pride, you can't take my power.
" Jah Cure urges his Jamaican and Caribbean brethren to save themselves, to save their countries, to save their economies, to save their families, and to save their children.
A line of the song is telling: "We must 'Save Ourselves' ... we must save ourselves from Babylon."
Cure believes that Save Yourself is an appropriate song for the circumstance as he says: "We cannot depend on Big Brother to help us, we must depend on each other and ourselves.
Jah Cure said he is releasing the record via the Internet hoping it will challenge his Jamaican brethren to stand up for their rights as he chants at the end of the song: "We have come too far to turn back now, we cannot let them take our freedom or our pride. They can never hold us down."
Save Yourself will be released online today
With the recent cancellation of the visas of top deejays Beenie Man, Bounty Killer, Mavado and Aidonia – and remember that Sizzla, Kartel, Busy, and Jah Cure do not have US visas – it has been felt that those artistes who are still eligible to fly will be eating a lot of food.
Artistes like Lady Saw, Elephant Man, Assassin, Chino and Voice Mail would naturally be high on any promoter’s list as main acts on dancehall shows/festivals. But according to booking agencies, this is not so.
Bookings agents are reported as saying that the cancellation of visas of the top artistes has affected the entire music industry, making promoters a bit wary of booking even those acts who still have visas.
“The entire music industry has been tainted,” is the message from the booking agents.
Promoters are nervous, and this is justified as there is a strong possibility that they can book an act for a show next month, only to hear a few days before the show that the artiste’s visa has been revoked by the US embassy.
The fact that the embassy is giving no explanation as to why the artistes’ visas were revoked has set the entire industry on edge.
People are afraid to travel because they might turn up at the airport only to hear that their names are on ‘The List’.
“This is mashing up the industry, and we can’t allow that to happen. We just have to find other markets to explore.
Artistes like Busy Signal and Kartel have been eating good food despite their ban from entering the great America, so artistes haffi just rise and know that them can’t allow Merry Macka to keep them down,” one artiste manager said.
The rumour mill has been spinning out of control with reports that a certain female deejay has been added to the list of artistes whose US visas have been revoked.
But, according to sources close to her – nutten don’t go so. The artiste recently went to Florida and returned without any problems.
“She fly out and come back good good and nobody neva harass her,” the source stated. Well, that’s a relief.
Bwoy, it come in like we cyan keep up with the artiste dem and how dem a dominate the headlines.
Imagine a man like Louie Culture inna wrangling and then him also pick up a gun shot; then it was the All Fool Day revelation say the US revoke some a dem visa and it look like that just set things in motion.
The next ting was that Mavado crash, then police lock up Bounty fi beat up him woman and a bag a tings. A Wednesday before Killer go back a court, and maybe the judge still don’t give him bail. Ninjaman inna jail fi one year now and him go a court this week and still don’t get bail. And then the Ras Junior Reid plead guilty to selling liquor without a licence.
We still don’t understand how the Ras ting and the liquor ting mix up and blend up, but all we can say is that it is the new world order.
It come in like say one week cyan pass without the artiste dem involved inna some court ting.
We a mek a appeal to all the artiste dem fi mek we start hear some positive tings inna di news. We a get tired a di mix up mix up.
That not putting reggae and dancehall music on top.
What a way Bounty Killer gwaan have to spend another week in jail?
Even when the girl whey him lick sey she not interested in pressing charges gainst him, dem still remand him till di next court date.
Dats why wi always sey temper a nuh good someting, cause anyting yuh duh have consequences. Di ongle advice wi have fi Bounty is fi tell him sey, jail time a waste time, so him fi just pree di dollar sign and stop getting cross, miserable and angry.
Boy it seems that Ninja Man will not be seeing the light of day any time soon. He was again remanded when he appeared in the Supreme Court yesterday. The DJ is set to return to court on April 23.
Ninjaman, whose real name is Desmond Ballentine, his son Janeil, Dennis Clayton and Seymour Samuels, have been jointly charged with the murder of Robert Johnson, who was shot and killed in Tower Hill, St Andrew last year.
Police alleged that the four were in a grey motorcar, which drove up to Johnson’s home at Marl Road and fired several shots hitting Johnson.
Ninjaman, who is being represented by attorney Norma Linton, appeared in court with his face bushy and his hair unkempt.
No application was made for bail by his attorney and the case is set to continue on April 23.
Bwoy Junior we glad yuh never stretch out di whole courtroom drama and just plead guilty and done sey yuh never authorize fi a sell nuh liquor.
nuh you a di first and yuh certainly nah go be di last whey caan wait pon di official ting fi sell the goodly liquor. $2000 a nuh nuten fi yuh pay, so wi know di serving time wouldn’t come into the deal.
Well di ongle question wi haffi ask is, why it teck so long fi get a license fi sell liquor? And if you do it illegally till permission come, a $2000 fine worth it, cause by dat dey time yuh done sell whole heap more dan data ready!
The son od Daryl Vaz, Information Minister, who is on a drug possession charge appeared in the Corporate Area Criminal Court on Tuesday.
Adam Vaz, 18, pleaded not guilty to the charge as the court was told that the forensic report was still outstanding.
The young Mr. Vaz was arrested on March 26 in possession of ganja at the Tinson Pen Aerodrome in St. Catherine.
He was preparing to board a flight to Montego Bay, St. James when his luggage was searched and a small quantity of ganja found.
He was charged and later released on $10,000 station bail.
He is to return to court on May 19.
Bounty Killer who has been described as cross, miserable and angry most times is living up to that reputation it seems as he is now behind bars for beating his girlfriend.
The DJ will be going to court this Wednesday, April 7 to answer to charges of assault occasioning bodily harm. Bounty will then know his fate.
The DJ was recently in the news when his name appeared on the list of artistes whose visas will be revoked.
The rumour mill has been churning since two weeks ago, spitting out various things about the Flossing King, Flippa Mafia.
First we heard that Flippa was in Jamaica lying low, waiting for his papers to come through. Then it was said that he had gone back up to the US safe and sound.And now, there is word that the deejay has been detained at the Miami Federal Detention Centre in Florida.
The rumour mill has it that Flippa was trying to get into the US through another route when he was held.
Right now, information is sketchy, but what we do know is that Flippa has not been answering his phone for nearly two weeks and has not been responding to emails and text messages.
Ricky Martin is no longer denying the rumours: He’s gay.
In a statement posted via Twitter in both Spanish and English, and later confirmed with his representative, Martin said: “I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am.”
For many, Monday’s announcement will come as no surprise; the Livin’ La Vida Loca singer’s sexuality has been speculated about for years. But the Puerto Rican star, who got his start as a child in the teen group Menudo, never directly addressed it and was usually seen at events with beautiful women on his arm.
Martin, 38, said he decided to reveal the truth after working on his memoirs helped him realise that he had to be free with himself, and not keep any more secrets.
“From the moment I wrote the first phrase I was sure the book was the tool that was going to help me free myself from things I was carrying within me for a long time.Things that were too heavy for me to keep inside,” he said. “Writing this account of my life, I got very close to my truth. And this is something worth celebrating.”
Martin said one of the reasons why he kept his homosexuality hidden was because he was told by some that it would hurt his career. While his US career peaked after the release of his 1999 self-titled English album, a multiplatinum success that included the hits Livin’ La Vida Loca and Shake Your Bon-Bon, he is still a hugely successful Latin artiste.
“Because all this advice came from people who I love dearly, I decided to move on with my life not sharing with the world my entire truth,” he said in his statement.“Allowing myself to be seduced by fear and insecurity became a self-fulfilling prophecy of sabotage. Today I take full responsibility for my decisions and my actions.”
Martin, who is the father of two boys born via surrogate in 2008, said he couldn’t continue to hide his sexuality now that he is a father: “Enough is enough. This has to change.”
Martin’s book is still a work in progress.

Well people him a chaw fire, so whoever teck it, bring it back.
Check out this article that appeared in today’s Observer. It maad!! Just had to bring it to your attention. After reading it tell us which of the titles you would give Kartel, DJ, porn star, or gangsta!
Kartel: Deejay, gangsta, or porn star?
Deejay Vybz Kartel surely knows how to grab head lines (no pun intended.) He has positioned himself as the top deejay locally and last year released a slew of songs which ensured that he claimed the coveted DJ of the Year title for 2009.
Kartel, as the self-proclaimed President of the Gaza and the leader of the now crumbling Portmore Empire, has had his fair share of criticism as being a 'gangsta', just like many deejays of this era have been labelled. However, the name Gaza speaks for itself, as the Gaza Strip which borders Egypt and Israel is known for some of the fiercest gun battles between the Palestinians and the Israelis.
Kartel has been accused of (and has denied) beating wayward members of the Portmore Empire into submission and the recent shooting up and fire-bombing of deejay Blak Ryno's house sent tongues wagging. Blak Ryno subsequently released a song in which he said the he was not "him pickney" and therefore had no right to beat him.
In September 2008, Kartel was picked up by police and questioned in the death of Christopher 'Nunu Puss' Miller, whose bullet-riddled body was found in Bernard Lodge, St Catherine. Kartel's Norbrook house was also raided by the cops. However, he was released without charge and subsequently declared his innocence. He was reported as saying then, "A jus some people a try mek it look like Kartel a di evilest man inna di world."
Kartel, in true deejay style proclaimed that he would write a song about that particular tribulation. He has however done so many songs since then, that it's hard to recall whether or not he kept his promise. But the theme of his songs, however, have been constant -- guns and sex. Included in his repertoire is a popular song dedicated to the "girl dem inna di go-go club', in which he vividly describes oral sex, an act which is considered taboo within the dancehall.
Late last year, Lisa Hype, while still a Gaza Princess and the aspiring First Lady of the Gaza, was booted from the territory when pictures surfaced of her performing this illicit activity on a man whose face was hidden. A release said that "The members of the Empire have unanimously agreed to end our professional relationship especially in light of certain 'developments' that have come to our attention regarding her overall conduct, conduct that is not consistent with the decorum expected of a member of the Portmore Empire."
After that mouthful from Kartel, who wouldn't be shocked when pictures surfaced late last week of him being the recipient of the very act for which Lisa Hype was kicked out.
Kartel, to put it mildly, had the Internet -- Facebook, Twitter and even mediatakeout.com -- blowing up last week when two photos of himself and two female companions indulging in oral sex in separate incidents. Many asked the question online if Kartel had quit deejaying and had turned into a porn star.
And here's what Kartel had to say about the picture on his Twitter page: "Why should these photos cause such chaos when everyone an dem mumma kno that Vybz Kartel is the 2 Live Luke of dancehall. Haven't they been listening to my lyrics all these years?"
Interestingly, rapper 2 Live Luke's latest album, (2006) was a triple disc featuring glorious titles such as My Life & Freaky Times, The Best of Uncle Luke's Freak Shows, Foreplay aka the Introduction, Luke and Mike Tyson: Saved by P----, Beauty and the Bestiality and Golden Shower Weekend.
The already popular Hennessy Fridayz, which joined the exciting mix of weekly and bi-monthly events on February 19, will have another edition this Friday night at its 36 Burlington Avenue home.
This event, which initially was intended to be staged weekly, will now take place every other week. “One week on, the other week off,” is how the promoters described the event.
The organisers are emphasising, however, that patrons need to come out early to party and enjoy their drink of choice — Henny.
“Ladies will be free before 12 midnight, and our cut off time is promptly at 2:00 am,” the promoter explained. “The first few weeks, the vibe has been great, but the only problem is that by the time the crowd gets into the venue, its lock off time. So we have to stick by the letter of the law … come out early and we will all have a grand Henny time.”
This eagerly anticipated event, which is held at a location right across from Stone Love HQ where Weddy Weddy is held each Wednesday night, has gained momentum in a relatively short time and has been given support from a the dancehall fraternity.
Keeping the juggling intense on Friday will be Supa Hype, Foota Hype and ZJ Liquid as special’s guest.
And, as a special give-away, the promoters say “buy a Hennessy and get a Canei free for the ladies”.
It’s been one year since Wet Sundaze debuted on the social calendar, creating quite a stir among partygoers as one of the most hyped and popular weekly events.
The brainchild of promoter Darren Virtue, Wet Sundaze will, this Sunday, March 28, 2010, be a celebration of the one-year anniversary and will see patrons partying with a new bottle in their hands: Guinness.
The launch of Guinness as the premium sponsor of Wet Sundaze is not to be missed as patrons will embody the Guinness lifestyle: ladies making bold choices, and the men on top of the world, and not afraid to show it.
As a dynamic and diverse brand, Guinness is armed and ready to bring Wet Sundaze to the next level, by introducing some new elements, like live music once per month.
Gary Dixon, Brand Manager for Guinness, is confident that with this changing of the guard, Wet Sundaze and Guinness are on a journey to GREATNESS.
“As one of the biggest and most-hyped weekly parties, we couldn’t have asked for a better collaboration. Guinness is a strong brand, and we needed a party that could handle that and match it,” said Dixon. “Guinness is, of course perfect for any occasion with greatness in every drop.”
Guinness Sundaze is set to drive the energy, passion and grass roots sensibilities that embody the Guinness brand. It keeps its usual venue, at AutoVision on 8 Hillview Ave, and this Sunday, March 28, gates will open at 10pm. cates, Stakeholders, friends.

Selector Ricky Trooper had a bad case of ‘Vybz Rum Moment’ in Atlanta over the weekend and it seemed as if all the seven devils of hell were unleashed.
Trooper stood up, rum glass and gun in hand — yes, a Glock if you please — and gave a drunken, expletive filled recitation that was shocking, disturbing and totally uncalled for. And what made it even more pathetic was his continuous demand for the video director to “Mek sure say oonu put this up pon youtube.”
First of all, Ricky Trooper is no youngster in the business; he’s been there and done that, and for Trooper to behave in this manner is pathetic. He is clearly angry at Chin (from Irish and Chin) for not putting him on the World Clash and figures that the best way to get back at Chin is to call him battyman.
(Trooper, that is so gutter. You were beaten good and proper at the Guinness Sounds of Greatness Clash, so just take you beating and try build back your sound. The fact is that you do not qualify to be a part of the World Clash. That is strictly big man thing, and your behavior shows that you are anything but. Chin would be out of his mind to even think of putting you on the World Clash.)
At his age, Ricky Trooper should be trying to set an example for younger selectors and for his children “who a no jacket cause a him f--- and get dem”.
Why is he calling up Bounty’s name? If Trooper wants to pledge allegiance to Kartel’s crumbling empire, nobody is stopping him.
Ricky Trooper, sober up and accept the fact that you are no the number one selector. Not now … not ever.
Unno si how long mi a cool and nah chat nobady business? Well fi tell di truth mi kinda did a kip myself to myself cause whether yuh believe it or not after a while people problem just meck yuh get depressed. No matter how yuh did deh inna yuh good mood some a yuh friend come to yuh wid dem story and by di time dem done talk yuh depress nuh backside.
Dats why mi try fi kip outa di mix up more time, but nuh matta how mi try sometime mix up find mi! Like dis sistren a mine whey mi got she and fi har man a have major troubles. She deh wid him from wappy kill Phil and mi tink sey dem have dem tink sort out proper by dis, ongle fi mi find out sey har man nuh have no regard fi har madda and she nuh teck tea wid dat deh kinda behaviour at all.

March 19, 2009 Kingston Jamaica:-The recent discovery of a fake Jah Cure Facebook page has forced Jah Cure’s management to take a zero tolerance in protecting Jah Cure’s intellectual property. The page which was connected to the email ‘email@example.com’, since been taken down by Facebook,sought to lure unsuspecting fans and promoters with promises of dubs and information on the artiste. The page also offered booking services for the artiste.
This fraud was brought to the attention of Danger Zone Music Group (DZMG) by an unsuspecting promoter from Belize who paid for dubs through this page and when the dubs weren’t furnished approached DZMG querying the transaction.It was at this moment that the promoter realized that he had been scammed.
CEO of the Danger Zone Music Group Delmar ‘Della Danger’ Drummond while upset about the situation believes promoters need to be extra care
ful when dealing with international transactions with artistes, he stated:“Only DZMG, SoBe Entertainment and Caribbean Entertainment are authorized to handle Jah Cure's bookings.I would like to extend my sincerest apologies to whoever has fallen victim to this scam but we have to be ever vigilant as with the advances in modern technology many nefarious characters are using the web to rob innocent unsuspecting persons”.
DZMG has acted with urgency in seeking to curtail the proliferation of fake Jah Cure pages on social networking sites like Facebook. The company will also cooperate with legal authorities in anyway possible to ensure that the intellectual property of Jah Cure is not violated.
DZMG wishes to advise those interested in legally procuring Jah Cure material to contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The road not travelled…
We all have to do what we have to do to survive and I am no different. I figured a long time ago that I wasn’t cut out for the books and I was damned if I was going to be left behind. From high school days I had a problem dealing with maths and those things. I knew I wasn’t gonna make the cut to graduate and all those wonderful things so in fourth form I befriended my form teacher who luckily was a man and in all honesty he tried to coach me in my books, but it became clear to him also that I was a hopeless case. I sensed he was about to throw in the towel and that’s when the brilliant idea came to seduce him…and that I needed no special lessons for!
From then he was putty in my hands. He marked up my grades, somehow managed to make me look good in school. But questions were asked when I left high school without one single subject against the fact that he always had glowing reports about me. But that wasn’t my problem, he had served his purpose.
After high school I made sure I socialized with the right kind of men and soon I was placed into a very good job…yes with no subject and not too bright upstairs either. But I had the wickedest slam and it was serving its own purpose.
Sleeping with the boss ensured I kept moving up…but then his wife got suspicious and started making a nuisance of herself.
I realized I could use that scenario to my advantage and so I told him to allow me to run one of the branches in the country and that way he could tell her there was nothing between us so he was transferring me, that she could feel more secure. I made a show of course of protesting and acting as if he was being paranoid and I didn’t want to leave!
She bought it hook line and sinker and from then on we set up our own little love nest when time allowed. It’s been almost 10 years now and I am still not married and that branch shut down due to the economy.
I now have to be living off him because I have no qualification to apply for anything with substance. Now I would give anything to have done things differently. I only share this story to let you know that your body can only take you so far in life…so don’t make my mistakes.
Yeah man afta all a did passa passa whey gwaan a did studio di people dem inna did area nuh stop complain till di KSAC people dem come lock it down.
Wi dun know sey from yuh have yuh money yuh can go to any studio go record, but tink bout di convenience and dem ting deh whey dem did have a di facility.
A hope wherever dem go dis time dem memba fi have good behaviour and nuh carry di bad vibes wid dem again.
Ky-Mani Marley, one of the sons of reggae legend, Bob Marley, has written a new book claiming he was deprived of his father's fortune for years unlike his half-brothers and half-sisters, sparking a row that could trigger legal action, a report carried by AFP says.
Ky-Mani Marley's Dear Dad hit booksellers' stands February 6, when the late reggae icon would have turned 65.
It has quickly become a major headache for this 34-year-old son of Marley.
Ky-Mani, aware of the family squabbling it could unleash, tried to delay its release, and to tweak the content. but he failed.
Now, there is a dispute between Ky-Mani Marley and his editor Farrah Gray, a young businessman of 24, over the truth of content of the book. Their clash could end up in court, both told media in the United States and Jamaica in recent days.
"The book was not an attack on my family. I love my brothers and sisters more than anyone can know," Ky-Mani Marley, a Jamaican actor and musician who is the son of Bob Marley and table tennis champ Anita Belnavis, said in a statement on his MySpace page.
The book says on its cover that it contains the "story the Marley family apparently didn't want you to know".
Among other themes, the book claims its author was kept from accessing his fathers' fortune by Marley's widow Rita. It also claims Rita Marley tried to keep the money for her children with Marley while denying financial support to his children with six other women.
"I did not expect that Dr Gray would have unprofessionally and maliciously twisted my words or use things that were discussed in confidence to create controversy in an attempt to sell a book," Ky-Mani Marley added.
"During the final edit of the book, I spoke with my sister, Cedella, and I advised Dr Farrah Gray that some changes had to be made and until the changes were made, I was not willing to do any promotion for the book," the author added.
But the editor was unmoved by what he said was the younger Marley's backtracking.
"His denials have thrown me and the publishing company under the bus. I didn't write his book, I published it. This is his story; these are his words and now I have to prove it," Gray argued.
Portmore Empire deejay Popcaan wants the world to know that he is alive and poppin. This following rumours over the weekend that he had been shot and killed.
"From Saturday, it ah get stink say mi get shot and mi ah wonder who is trying to perpetrate this rumour but I just want the fans to know that I am alive and kicking. I am not dead," he is reported as saying.
Popcaan is widely regarded as the artiste most likely to carry the banner for the next generation of young artistes emerging out of the Vybz Kartel-led Gaza camp.
Boisterous and fun-loving, Papi, as he is called by friends, has found a commercially viable hit, Nuh Ordinary Girl, which has been blowing up all over FM radio over the last couple of weeks.
The song, which appears on the popular England Town riddim, is a big fave among females. He also has a controversial single called Sell We Out which labels departing ex-Empire member Blak Ryno a traitor. One of his most popular song is a Clarks song alongside Vybz Kartel himself.
"The fans dem can look out for great things from Popcaan this year, the Empire goes on and on and on."
He was detained last week Thursday in a raid on Father Romie's Exodus studio in Havendale, but was released later that night.

A Jamaican man who was on the brink of deportation got that decision reversed when he told them that he was a homosexual and is afraid to go back home as he was scared they would kill him!
Bap bap! That was the key word to have them showing him mercy. Blow wow it really serious star.
Check out this story in today’s Jamaica Observer, it mad! I find it really funny. For people who are so straight, how come they have so many men hanging around? And why do promoters give them so many arm bands? If they want their ‘mantourage’ to come to the show then let them pay for them and not for backstage passes either!
THANKS to comedienne Elva for introducing the word 'mantourage' to the dancehall lexicon. What a wonderful word to describe an entire 'district of men' who walk aimlessly
behind homophobic artistes swearing loyalty and devotion and who have to be clothed and fed.
It's a regular thing to see artistes roll into a stage-show with a bus load of people and when we say a bus load, we mean a bus load. Just watching them bail out is an experience in itself. It's just people on top of people -- in some cases it looks like at least four persons share a seat made for two. And this is the norm for deejays like Vybz Kartel and the Alliance.
At the recent Follow Di Arrow stage show in St Mary, the horse and pony show with the 'mantourages' -- fortunately there were a few women to balance off things a bit -- was something else. As soon as Alliance/Gully artistes worked and made their exit with their district in tow, in came the Gaza mantourage with what looked like a never-ending stream of people.
The backstage area could hardly breathe.
While enterting the venue, we observed young act, Deejay Face -- remember her from Digicel Rising Stars? She arrived with her mantourage in tow, a whole coaster bus 'full a people' all duly accredited.
At events like these, the mantourage's presence is clearly the promoter's expense, as they usually have special armbands that sometimes give them even more access than working press. Repeatedly, artistes and promoters are at loggerheads because the artistes make what promoters consider unreasonable de-mands for up to 50 backstage passes. And, what is even more distressing is when all 50 persons think it's their right to follow the artiste on stage. We have witnessed some royal battles between mantourages and stage managers.
That aside, however, there is one fascinating thing about mantourages -- they have to be maintained. How on earth do these artistes manage to feed so many hungry mouths? Day in day out? There are stories of artistes who, on their way from stage shows with their mantourage spend up to $35,000 just buying food at the popular food stops.
Our survey has shown however, that 'Dada' gets it right.
"Every day Dada mek them put on one big pot and full it up with dumplin, yam, banana and is that them eat with some veggie stew. And him buy things in bulk -- like the 100 lb bag of rice, flour sugar," one source close to Judgement Yard explained.
And then, there is their obligations when they go to "foreign" to buy clothes for the mantourage and their families and to give them hard cash as well. And we won't even mention the unmentionable.
Considering all these expenses, perhaps the artistes could make a case for themselves when the tax collectors come a-calling. The money they spend supporting these men and their familes should qualify artistes for some kind of tax break.
Nuff people fraid fi go a US embassy now. Because a whey a gwaan wid di Jamaican and di US government dem a wonda if dem fi pay dem big big money and go embassy go look a visa.

Female deejay Lisa Hyper, is cross, miserable and angry that a member of Bounty Killer’s entourage kicked her female friend on Saturday night after the stage show, Follow Di Arrow.
A former member of the Vybz-Kartel-led Portmore Empire, which has maintained a at-daggers-drawn relationship with Bounty’s Alliance, Lisa Hyper issued out the ultimate diss to Killer during her set.
“Bounty a junky and him go St Thomas go ride monkey,” the petite dynamo said, in obvious reference to obeah practices, and the crowd roared. This, however, was swiftly followed by stout rounds of boos, which Lisa took in her stride.
“When mi get boo me just laugh, cause a music,” Lisa said.
Things, however, got ugly as following Lisa’s exit from stage the Alliance hangers-on decided to take matters in their own hands.
Prior to she and her friend leaving the venue, the young girl was held and kicked by one of the clownies.
“But mi friend see him face and me see him to. And I don’t want anybody to think say because mi leave Gaza anything change. I could come to Follow Did Arrow with a hundred man, but I never choose to,” Lisa declared.
Dem ketch two women a New Habour housing scheme a dance love song together inna dem living room and when di neaighbour a flip up bout it, di women dem sey, "leave wi alone, a wi a pay wi mortgage."

Everybody who's anybody in Hollywood has a sex tape. So no wonder 50 Cent felt the need to join da club.
But now the MC is in a heaping pile of trouble for allegedly splicing himself (in his bewigged guise of "Big Pimpin' Curly") into X-rated footage of a Florida woman doing the nasty and then posting the clip online.
Sure, it might result in a lawsuit, but there's no doubting Fiddy has some mad comedic skillz.
As for the legal matter, filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, the offended party, Lastonia Leviston, claims the rapper used her name and likeness without permission by publshing the video on his website, thus causing her severe emotional distress after it, um, spread virally online.
Leviston alleges that she and her beau, whose face is blurred out in the Fiddy version, "videotaped themselves engaging in sexually explicit activities" in June 2008, per the New York Daily News.
Although the dude purportedly promised to destroy the tape, he instead "transferred or sold" it to 50 Cent, according to the complaint. Fiddy then turned it into a comedy routine that also mocked rival rapper Rick Ross (for example, Fiddy's commentary notes the initials "R.R." tattooed on Leviston's chest, and indicates they refer to Ross).
In a later radio interview, Leviston also accused the hip-hopster, real name Curtis Jackson, of labeling her a "call girl," causing her further embarrassment.
Her complaint seeks unspecified damages. Neither Leviston's lawyer nor the rapper's manager were available for comment.
Whoo! if wi laugh wi pop up, a which DJ dem sey him woman walk inna him apartment anmd ketch him a nyam out one next girl.

Whoie! Mi just read one story in the Jamaica Observer and it have to do wid di fact dat a whole heap a man a Jamaica a get beat up by dem woman. Yes man, nuff man whey yuh si wid all kinda a bruises whey a tell yuh how dem haffi dust out a bwoy and tings, a lie Nutten nuh guh suh, a dem woman deal wid dem wicked a way.
"It is very difficult to get statistical evidence on the issue," deputy head of Fathers Inc Solomon McCalla told editors and reporters at the Observer's weekly Monday Exchange meeting yesterday. "The men will not come forward and say that they are being physically abused."
Senior policy analyst and male desk representative at the Bureau of Women's Affairs Dave Noel Williams, said the abuse of men by women is far more widespread than thought. He said he had counselled about 10 men, ranging from age 23 to their 40s over a nine-month period last year, who had been abused by women.
"What they will tell you is that the women beat up on them, but then they come back now to justify and say, 'a me do it first', or 'a me say something that she never like', or 'a me tell her that she couldn't go somewhere'," said Williams, while pointing out that most men do this because they want to give the impression that they are still in control.
He pointed out that most men prefer that their story remains a secret, because for the most part being abused by a woman is considered a "shame" or a "sin" in Jamaica.
"It is taboo, so men will not go forward and say that they are being abused," he stressed. "If it should be written any at all in the paper or even be on the news that a man has been abused and he comes forward for help, then he is going to be seen as a wimp, to put it nicely, and that's very, very nicely."
But big and serious if man woman a buss dem ass, dem fi guh police and meck dem lock up dem backside. Dem fi memba sey if a did di man a duh it, dem woulda lock dem up, so whey good fi di goose, good fi di gander also. A suh mi sey.
But a which "good up good up" artiste a gwaan like sey she meck har name aready inna di business. Bwoy dats why some business man fi watch how dem invest dem money. Cause life can be rough outaroad deh mi a tell yuh. She guh a Follow Di Arrow launch and gi diva behaviour, gwaan like she betta dan others. One piece a sinting, Queen Pauls grab di mic and teck di launch. A good fi har. Mi a tell yuh but neva si come si, it nuh pretty at all. Girl if you know whey wi know yuh just humble yuhself, come offa di high horse whey yuh deh pon and tank God fi di manager whey yuh got, before him drop yuh and people sey A who!
A why Merciless did dung a St Thomas a gwaan like say him a big prima donna? Bout him a send out War Waiter fi defend him gainst Gabriel because him think say the lickle artiste no inna did same league with him. Well, St. Thomas people neva do do a betta thing than boo Leonard good and propa. If Merciless neva want did clash him should a neva turn up a did event and have Nuffy dem a call up him name inna clash tings. We see it say Merciless frighten when the lickle youth start reel off lyrics because it all look like Leonard neva prepare fi did onslaught. And did mix up people dem just love it. Gabriel, you buss way like a beigie kite!
Wi a wonda if di wonda whey cause di ruckus a Uptown Mondays and all cause di promoter son fi get stab if she gawn back to har man yet. And if him really have di heart fi teck har back. Big and serious both woman and man fi stop dem games still ynuh.
Di Cash Plus people nah gi back di investors dem money, no sah, dem just have it stash some whey and lef people fi suffer. Yuh si if dis ya government did a gi people hard time like whey Madoff inna US get, dem woulda a play cat and mouse game with people livlihood.'
What really a go gwaan a did Settlement ova St Thomas on Saturday? Nuff people did a say Queen Paula dun out and she no have no lyrics lef, but it look like a lie dem a tell. Paula a gwaan abd and a sharpen up her tongue fi everybody. Right yah now, Queen Paula no have no friend, every female deejay and singer is her enemy, so people, oonu haffi watch out fid a one yah. But, oonu nuh write off Lisa Hyper either, cause we know say she very swift pon her tongue. It’s gonna be hell and powder house inna St Thomas.
How I stole my sister’s man
I have always been a family person. I spend my whole life, trying to be there for everyone, but sometimes I think they just take advantage of me. I would try to get ahead with my plans and find that they have to be placed on the back burner because of some need or other in the family circles. The thing is that I am not the one who is considered ‘hot’ when it comes on to my sisters.
There are four sisters of us and the other three are light complexioned and real beautiful, me I am the dark one and on the fat side. Sometimes I feel a bit insecure, cause they often make comments like, “bwoy sis, yuh haffi fi guh settle, cause you short bad inna di shapes department .”
It would make me upset, cause truth be told, I am the only one who went on to college and actually have a good job, The other three well…their jobs don’t make one. One is a cashier, the other works at a fast food restaurant and the smallest, one minute she is working the next she is not.
But somehow they always seem to find some man who they can con.
Well their lifestyle never bothered me before, I was too busy trying to get ahead. I finally managed to pay down on my house and moved out.
Two wanted to come live by me but I told them no, they need to put down roots themselves. She made a spiteful comment like, “gwaan that’s why you nah guh have nuh man”. I laughed and said something like, “Please I could have yours if I want him.”
You should have seen the scornful look she gave me before bursting into laughter, “you…in my shoes, man you must think a lot more of yourself than I gave you credit for.”
That hurt. Maybe it was then that the seed was planted into my head that I wanted her to eat her words.
I started go places where I knew her man would be, ‘accidentally’ bumping into him, cracking a few jokes and then saying bye.
Her man was going to UWI and when he found out that I had already done the same course he was pursuing , he started seeking out my company. While helping him, we had a lot of fun times. One night he looked at me and said, “You know that you are a really cool person?”
I didn’t say anything, just smiled and told him to hit back the books. From my other sisters, I heard how she was complaining that her man was paying her much attention. She felt he had someone else in his life. She said how he kept asking her if she isn’t going to upgrade herself.
I smiled to myself. Good it’s time she knew there were some men out there who won’t always be satisfied with just a pretty face. He wanted substance, which I had.
One night things went beyond the books and before we knew it, we were making mad passionate love, rolling around on the floor, sweating, pumping away.
Man it was the best sex experience I had ever had.
When it was over, he told me he was going to leave my sister…cause even before he started hanging with me, he was turned off by her lack of ambition and way she constantly put down people.
Suffice it to say, when she found out I was the one her man had moved on with, she cussed and ranted, calling me a traitor and a slut. But I do not regret it. I may have started out to spite out, but truth be told I really fell in love with the guy. We are now engaged and in another three months we will be tying the knot.
If anyone judges me, that’s their business, while they are wasting their time cussing…me I am going to be happy.
Bwoy we a read a story in the Chat! and we really doan know what's worse. Fi get lifteime supply a Viagra or miss out on natural arousal. One Courts truck lick down this man when he was 19 years old and him lose part of him leg, plus him caan function properly inna di sex department.
Now him a 26 year old now and still caan function properly without the help of Viagra. Him teck di case a court and di furniture giant a go foot di bill to di tune of $1.53 million in a court ruling last month.
Him have couple more millions fi claim from dem but all we have to say is that somethings money caan meck up fa. Every time you want one erection yuh haffi fork out di viagra.
Drivers wi a beg yuh please be careful and stop mash up di likkle straight man dem wey left inna di country.
Mathew Knowles has been confirmed as the soon-to-be baby daddy of Alexsandra Wright's child, the woman who filed a paternity lawsuit against Bey's dad back in October.
Beyonce's mom, Tina Knowles reportedly knew about the pending beh-beh for "a couple of months" and doesn't even want DNA proof because Mathew already confessed to the affair.
Sources say Tina "particularly bitter" about it because the whole debacle is "so humiliating for her."
Bwoy people still a talk bout did wicked interview whey Lisa Hyper do pon Irie FM on did programme name Entertainment Buzz. Mi sey she was so real, she just talk whatever come to har mind and when one caller phone in and ask har sey if a did first time she a go dung pon a man, wi did swear sey she nah go ansa, but nah sah, she admit sey a nuh did first! Fi real, yuh caan get nuh realer dan dat. Wi nah lie a nuff nuff people call in pon did programme and big up har status. Yeah man from how it sound Lisa Hyper gone clear.
Vybz Kartel sent out a statement to say that he did not order Gaza Kim to be beaten, he also made it clear he does not condone this type of behaviour. Now all we want to ask is: What happened to the men who beat Kim and her brother. Are they still on the Gaza strip.
If Lisa Hype was kicked out because she was not sharing the same vision of the crew, what will happen to the thugs who beat Kim at the studio - going against their boss principles in not beating women?
We sincerely hope that Kartel lives up to his standards and if as he says he does not sanction Kim's beating discipline those who dared to 'violate' his orders.
If they are still there...then we have to wonder about the sincerity of his stance that he didn't have anything to do with it.
Bwoy a di biggest debate inna di streets right now and dat is a who fah pickney whey Jah Cure did tink a fi him. Mi sey di amount a name whey a call up inna dat deh raffle deh nuh pretty at all. Big name artiste all none artiste.
A whey really a gwaan star. But di number one questions whey Yardflex waan fi ask, dem neva listen to Buju Banton song whey sey cover yuh willy and doan be silly. What if some a dem girl deh whey a sleep wid more dan one entertainer did have AIDS a how it woulda guh...a suh much entertainer woulda have it tuh. No sah, dem must teck sleep mark death. Dem too careliss wid dem health if you ask we.
Bwoy it come een like sey hard times a lick a certain big name artiste. Cause nuff promoter always sey him a one a di reasonable ones dem when it comes on to pricing and working with di programme. But wi talk to bout three promoters recently whey sey dem couldn't believe him coulda do dem dat. Di man sig off pon di contract with a certain price and money pay up and ting and him nuh do nutten but wait till di day of di show dem dan call up di promoter and meck dem know sey him nah go pon di stage unless dem gi him some more money.
Now straight up a ediot ting dat. If yuh set a price, stick to it.
People, it STICKY pon dem. Rosie and Gordene were best friends and then mateys, but here comes the kicker, dem coulda be 'honorary babymammas' as well because two ah dem did a sex Chino at the same time. But anno fi him name alone ah call. Nuff man nah answer dem cellphone today and suddenly dem Blackberry BB nah work, dem fraid say dem get the teary-eyed call say 'I think that you're the father of my child'....WHOI, MI BODY! Dem a raffle up and ah pick. Mi hear say ah the Warlord himself used to pay her rent over Oaklands at exactly the time when she breed, that's why de people dem use white-out and write up a bagga tings pon her wall. Promotions money caan pay the 35g a month rent, who dem a ramp wid? Dem caan trick mi. Killa can pick up same batter ears sometime yu see? Beenie Man sleep inna the bed weh him buy Angel, and see it happen again, how Bounty so salt? Mi body!
Boy what’s with these artistes and women who can’t seem to tell the truth where their pregnancies are concerned. First it was Rosie passing her baby on to the wrong artiste and now conscious singer Jah Cure has to swallow the bitter pill that the woman he was caring for and supporting during her pregnancy, the child is really not his. Hmnn we have to wonder how the daddy will turn out to be. Check out the official statement from Jah Cure’s camp.
OFFICIAL STATEMENT FROM JAH CURE
:-There have been recent media reports about a DNA test result that involved Jah Cure. While not wishing to join the media circus that has ensued because of these revelations, Jah Cure wishes to outline a few facts and settle the matter once and for all.
Jah Cure has supported the mother throughout her pregnancy and had his father and manager be with her at the time of delivery in the US. His support for her throughout this period was unwavering.
Before the birth of the child Jah Cure requested a DNA test, a request which the mother refused. Despite this, Jah Cure continued to support the child and the mother.
Now that the DNA test has been done and it has been shown that he is not the father, Jah Cure wishes to move on.
The fact is that the most important individual in this whole affair is the child and the longer that this continues the more damage is being done to the child. Jah cure will not now abandon the child but wishes that the media respect the privacy of the parties as the child is indeed innocent and did not contribute to the mistakes of the adults involved.
Bwoy the tiefing ting a gwaan a way star. Imagine Ity and Fancy Cat DVD out and di people dem pump in a lot a money inna di venture and before it even have time fi soak di market and dem can even meck back whey dem put in di CD deh a Canada a sell fi $5 when it supposed to legally a sell fi $15! No star, a whey dis piracy ting a guh end. It hard fi yuh put suh much inna one ting and den have people a rip yuh off, left, right and centre.
Just when you think the news could not get any more disgusting come along something else that absolutely turns your stomach. In Tuesday’s issue of the Star there is a story about a 10 year old girl who gave birth and the child died three days later.
Now the weird thing about it all is that the story claimed no one knew she was pregnant until she was in the seventh month. They only discovered this when she fainted in class and was rushed to the hospital, it was then the discovery was made.
Now what I want to ask is this, how is it possible that she could be pregnant for all of seven months without so visible signs.
How closely was she being monitored by her mother that morning sickness, missed periods and all that passed her by.
When exactly did she get involved with a 30-odd year old man that the mother missed out on all the dialogues and stuff like that.
Of course children can keep secrets but a child that young should have been under tighter control.
The whole Mountainside community in St Elizabeth should bear the shame of this deed as someone must have noticed some inappropriate behavior. Check out some of the story:
The child's father said he is distraught about the incident because he was not given custody of his daughter when he attempted to take her into his care.
"I filed for custody for my daughter but I did not get her and she was given to her mother," said the man.
He also said he does not get to see his daughter because he is a man who does not tolerate foolishness.
A senior cop attached to the Black River Police Station told THE STAR that the matter was being investigated; however, the officer was tight-lipped about the case.
The child's father told THE STAR that the child delivered the baby in December and the baby died three weeks later. The angry father said that he was not even told about the baby's death until two weeks after.
According to the father, his daughter fainted at school and was rushed to the hospital when it was revealed that the child was seven months pregnant.
"How could she be seven months pregnant and no one knew, that makes no sense," said the confused father.
The child's father is begging that the culprit be brought to justice as no one in his right mind would have sex with a 10-year-old girl.
Now mi know unno tink sey mi faas and mi love people business, but mi caan help it, if it always a come mi way. Is not like mi guh outa mi way fi get it. Then again maybe di ongle solution a fi change mi friend dem, cause dem eva have some mix up tings either a gwaan inna dem life or inna dem friend life.
Well di latest passa passa come from dis girl whey inna wi crew. Di ongle ting a can sey is dat she really a gwaan out and bad. To birdcage, mi neva know sey woman coulda bad and disgusting suh.
This girl a deal wid two brothers and fi mek it wus one a dem inna di freaky ting like anal sex.
She a play round wid di two bredda dem and from wha mi get is like one a dem nearly lose him mind ova har and yuh tink sey she woulda care. No sah, dat nuh stop har from a go from one a dem bed to di nex.
Di wus ting is dat from one a di brother a deal wid har a pure saltness a follow him. Him all talk outa him mouth sey it look like she jinx him, and you woulda tink sey him woulda si di light and step.
Di odda day she dey a Rebel Salute a gi out him photo and him CD.
Mercy, if a laugh a pop up, no sah, dem two brodda yah need fi open dem eyes and smell the roses, cause it nuh pretty at all.
If I ever had any doubts that we are in end times then they have been dispelled by the kind of news I have been seeing lately. There are wars and rumours of wars, mothers against daughters, earthquakes in divers places and fathers against children.
The latest comes in the case of a 45-year-old dad who is now in court for allegedly killing his 16-year-old son. Allegations are that the teen went to visit his father who is a chef for lunch money to go to school. An argument developed and the father used a blunt instrument to hit his son in the head. He fell on the ground and started throwing up, the dad called his daughter to come and take her brother to the hospital, the youth died the following day.
Now the father’s lawyer is claiming that he didn’t hit his son and yes the child came to check him for lunch money and he left and went to get it and when he returned he found his son on the ground.
The father is remanded in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court.
I don’t want to play judge and jury here, but the story is filled with more holes than a strainer! It’s sad though that some fathers can’t willing fork out money to take care of their kids. If they are no longer in a relationship with the mothers then they should make it their duty to ensure the children’s needs are taken care of.
I’m tired of reading about kids being ill-treated or not properly taken care of. We are losing too many of our kids, it’s time that adults bat for them.
Right now, we don’t know who fi blame — Beenie, Ele or the organizers of the Coke Zero concert. While we agree wid Ele say Beenie shouldn’t go up pon stage Saturday night and flop DeMarco and tek the rest of the show fi himself, a di Coke Zero organizers we haffi blame deso. Cause a must dem did give Beenie the mic fi go pon stage. And some people a say a DeMarco call him up. But we don’t tink say DeMarco coulda so fool-fool cause him did have him set done plan out and after Beenie reel off him bag a tune no time neva left fi DeMarco fi bring on him peeps and do him ting like how him plan. But, tell mi something, if dem did want Beenie pon did show why dem neva book him. Beenie was there from early out and mek sure say Sean Kingston give him a call up and then him go trample for Marco ting. When Beenie done wid the stage no forward neva left fi Ele, who was closing the show.
Bwoy we did really sorry fi Elephant Man when the crowd boo him at the Coke Zero concert. But Ele, you shoulda did know say if you a go cuss Beenie the crowd a go turn round pon you. Is so dem stay. Remember how dem did boo Bounti a Sumfest cause him did a call Beenie fish and all dese tings. Ele, all you shoulda did do, is dance and sing you song dem and collect you money. But instead you want play hero and a defend a next man cause. We hope you learn.
Lawks a just di odda day mi write bout women whey sleep round and now mi haffi share one now wid dis girl whey mi help out. She come to mi and tell mi sey she in danger fi lose har job a one a dem big airline company.

Why some women so fool fool? Why mess up a good ting? Tell mi please.
Mr Vegas, a mek you a hype and galang so? Why you trace off Richie B pon Twitter just true you tink him neva nominate you fi him EME award. All a talk bout how you nah pay fi mek you tune go pon did man chart and all these tings. And then, it look like you decide fi look again and you realize say you name deh pon did nomination list. You no feel foolish? All when you wipe it off a Twitter, we still have it, and we have the tracing from last year with you and Irie Jam people to. Mek you a gwaan so? A true you and the deejay baby madda deh big and serious now mek yu a show up you colours so? We spot did two a oonu ova Raga Christmus show and it look like a dat did get did deejay angry when him see him baby madda a pose up side a you. All when him deh a Sting him did still look angry; is a good ting him neva get fi perform. But Vegas, is a new year now, a time you stop curse like a girl and find fault cause remember: you is not Mr Perfect at all. And, tell did baby madda she she fi try pay lickle attention to the child, it don’t look good how she a ignore him.
Bwoy fi tell di truth, wi neva know sey Beenie Man is a father to four kids who suffer from sickle cell. We a read one story inna TeenAge Observer whey him sey he could not say no to such as just cause as Shaggy's especially knowing the state of his own children who will be beneficiaries of the aid being given to the Bustamante Hospital for Children. Yeah man nuff people wouldn't come up front bout dem tings deh. Beenie all wi can sey is that you continue to be a good father and gi dem four pickney an abundant supply of love and attentiion. Seen.
So it look like the singjay and the daughter of the high profile pastor really have a ting a gwaan. People a wonder a how Rev like him new son-in-law and how di locks ting and church ting a go harmonise. But, memba say Tommy Cowan a big big church man and still have him whole heap a dreadlocks, so a no nutten. Rev, people a wonder if you did stay fi him performance a Sting?
I thought we would be resting the stupid clash idea with LA Lewis and Goofy, but if the report in the Star is anything to go by then it could very well be happening. More’s the pity.
According to the report Brite Lite Funeral Services' owner Tommy Thompson is planning an event later this month where the two artistes will face off lyrically.
At Sting 2009 at Jamworld in Portmore, St Catherine, the $200,000 casket was on stage waiting and Mr G, fully clad in black, was in attendance but LA Lewis was missing in action.
Now Thompson is making arrangement for the two artistes to meet on a new yet-to-be named stage for a clash of comical proportions.
Yeah yeah, we all know LA Lewis is no DJ and we can’t foresee him coming with any killer lyrics. Just look at what happened at Ragashanti’s Mix Up and Blenda show at the Arena, the boos are still resounding in our ears.
Rihanna has found a well-endowed, sexually proficient man worthy of that fling in LA Dodger Matt Kemp. The two were rumored to be dating after being snapped together over New Years and now they've taken their sex train (not like that) to Mexico.
Now, these grabby/kissy snaps are tame compared to a couple of hot tub pics that'd leave the cast of "Real World: Las Vegas" slackjawed.
You go girl
Bwoy it was real drama on Ragashanti live yesterday when Spice called in to the programme. Yeah man di topic was Ungrateful Friend mix up and Spice did have a lot to say on dat one. She sey Nuffy fit dat topic as him is one ungrateful friend. She go inna di days when dem used to share on dumpling inna har board house a Portmore. To when she used to meck him drive up har car till people tink sey a she a borrow it from him when she drive it..
She all go inna di fact sey she used to teck di money whey har man gi har and share it wid Nuffy…and after all dat him still tun round and dis har!
Spice sey Nuffy sabotage har and never call har up pon di stage and den him have di gall fit un round and a sey she coward.
Spice alla a meck Nuffy sister Marie call in and sey how har bredda ungrateful fi true.
Mi dear it was pure drama when Raga hook up wid Nuffy him sey him nah back dung from whey him sey, Spice coward fi true…and she know it. Him talk how much time him haffi coax har fi teck di stage.
Spice sey him illiterate and a she teach him fi read and write and cuss him how him tell har business to Lisa Hype. Nuffy just lick back and sey wha bout when him used to tell Macka and D’Angel business to har fi DJ bout! Whooii mi cyan teck it.
Well remember we told you Liser Hyper (yes she change har name is no more Hype, she Hyper now!) she never really said anything juicy, more than say she is doing her own thing and that she still cool wid Vybz Kartel. So we no more clear why him sey him nuh want har inna Gaza than before she go pon di programme. Wi get the feeling that she holding something back. But a suh life guh, maybe one of dese days di real ting will come out. She sey she a programme har music ya now and tings. Still wi wish har all di luck.
So the graffiti king finally break him silence bout him so-show at Sting. And him come with him mouth full of one bag a sobolious lie. How di hearse neva pay for and him suit neva pay for and him neva get enough ticket fi him entourage. Why LA Lewis tink say people a fool. Everybody know say a true him get a full 10 minute boo over Raga show him did fraid fi go a Sting.
Why is Assassin griping like a big gal how him perform good at Sting and media overlook him. And him a gwaan on and on bout how him is dis good boy who only want to elevate di music. But a when Assassin really see di light? Look how people did a beg him no fi use di name Assassin because it just too violent and negative, and him neva tek telling. And now that him decide fi change it him a galang like him deh pon some kinda crusade and him is so perfect. Yute, you have a far way to go and if you a go lef the business just because media don’t give you enough big up after one show, den maybe you inna di wrong business.
Flippa really have a speedy recovery after him crash him Porsche Cayenne pon Hagley Park Road Tuesday morning. We nah tell no lie, di vehicle maaaad. Everybody did a pass it and a slow down and wonder a who fa truck. But we hear say Flippa did crash one next vehile di odder day inna di States. Flippa, it look like you need a bath inna di 2010 or you need fi get some driving lessons. Anyway, we hope you boat ride whe you a plan gwaan good Tuesday.
What Lisa Hyper a go do with all the tattoo dem pon her body that talk bout gaza? This is a lesson to all a oonu who just buy out this tattoo ting. Onnu must stop scrawl up man name all over oonu body cause when oonu and di man lef and oonu get a new man is a big problem. Cause tattoo can’t rub out or wash off, so tink twice and thrice before oonu plaster oonu body with all kind a tings.
How di woman dem inna di biz so bitter? Sting neva done good and Lisa Hyper go build lyrics and call up all a di woman dem name wicked wicked. And although nuff a dem say dem nah answer her, Spice build some lyrics weh nuh normal. Di tune name Lisa Swiper and Spice come out wid all guns blazin’. ‘Sting stand up pon you stiffer than the d—k inna you mouth … you put di c---y inna you mouth cause you hole no have no glue’. Spice go hard. A wonder if Lisa Hyper a go answer.
Bwoy wi get a heads up fi Onstage pon wi Facebook and fi tell di truth wi haffi watch it Saturday. And if by chance unno miss it, wi a meck sure wi teck notes dat wi can fill unno in.
Yeah man, Lisa Hype a guh deh pon deh a talk up di tings dem. Di alert sey is a no hold barred interview whey she a guh talk bout what really happened between her and the empire, Sting, the picture and her career. Fi real it should be interesting, cause everybody want to know whey really did guh dung. On a different note Nuffy a guh deh pond eh tuh and inna it him sey Spice a coward. Fi real a nuff mix up a guh gwaan Saturday.
So all now LA Lewis still in hiding.? A wha really a gwaan with the graffiti deejay. We did tink seh LA have more guts than that. After all, him a big big seven star general and all these things, so him better come face di music, cause him cyan she a lie bout the boo dem whe him get a Raga show. Because, LA, we gots the tape … live and direct. So LA, you betta come talk up di tings dem.
What the hell is happening, do we always have to be having a feud? Can’t the music survive without some artiste or the other being involved in some kind of bickering? Is it that these artistes have lost their creativity and the only way they can stay current is to build clash lyrics that their names can keep making the headlines and ringing on people’s lips?
It’s a sad day in dancehall music when we have so many clash lyrics and artistes throwing words at each other. The next on the list now is Merciless and Cobra who are engaged in a lyrics dissing game. Won’t even go there with the things they are saying, all we can say is that it’s time to rise above the foolishness and get back to the real business of making music. Nothing else interest us…seen.
It was high drama on the grounds of the Oaklands complex on Constant Spring Road early this morning as popular deejay Rodney Pryce and dancehall debutante and promoter, Mumzell had a strong, physical altercation.
Allegations are that the deejay, better known as Bounty Killer and Mumzell have been involved in a relationship and it is speculated that “things have gone sour”.
According to one eyewitness report, “Mumzell come a di apartment fi mash up Bounty vehicle. And when she look a Killer dat to rhatid a come in like King Alarm.”
It is reported that a frightened Mumzell, with nowhere to run, had no choice but to brace for a Killer beating.
“Killer gi har some box and kick, she never know wha’ reach har,” the YardFlex source said, adding that Mumzell is “no walk over as she a girl who get off a murder charge couple years ago when a nex’ gal rush her and she stab her.”
Sources say that Mumzell, whose name had been linked to Junior ‘One Blood’ Reid, had dissed Bounty recently, but with two court cases already hanging over his head, the deejay had chosen to ignore it.
Mumzell is also the promoter of a weekly Thursday night dance in Southside, which Bounty is reuted to “buss out”.

What a way the debate is raging regarding Busy Signala’s adapatation of Phil Collin’s One More Night. It was total drama on Thursday when Ragasdhanti played the song about five times and asked listeners to give their opinions on what they heard.
Just like us they heard “Gary give me just one more night!” Whooi it is totally madness as everywhere we go it is the hot conversation topic these days.
Some are cursing the engineer though saying that he should have corrected the error when he had the chance.
“How him fi meck a ting like dat escape when the DJ sey “baby” and meck it sound like “Gary”.
“Yuh done know busy a galis, look how him have three woman did pregnant one time fi him at one point,” Signal’s supporter pointed out.
Sometime ago Beenie Man came under the same fire for his song Who Am I with the troublesome line being “How can I make love to a fellow, in a rush,” Beenie later explained that it was all a matter of a comma.
Big and serious, dem really nah let out Ninjaman outa di jail star? When you check it out him inside a di cell for a long time now. Yuh member one time Ninja did sey if dem lock him up him just a guh pretend sey him lock up inna him house and him last him key.

But di ting bout it is dat with Sting lineup suh lame, dem really need one big surprise fi rescue dem like di fact sey Ninja a go meck it a Sting.
Still wi nah too hold wi breath fi dah one yah.

So people, like how the Gaza and the Gully no longer at war what a go happen a Sting??? Of course we haffi big up Kartel and Mavado fi really shake hand and turn friend again, but everybody know say dem did a come under nuff pressure from police and government so dem never really have no choice.
Anyway, we still a ask how di clash a go go at Sting! Did somebody say no Gaza/Gully war; No Sting?
Well, there’s always LA Lewis and Goofy and we hear some lickle rumble a gwaan with Ele and Flippa like sumptin’ coulda happen.
Missa Laing, you need more than a rabbit foot fi give you di luck fi pull of this one. You need a whole hutch full a rabbit.

And it come in like seh one mix-up monkey let loose ya now, so all di gangster and gangstress dem who know dem hide and lick better be prepared fi di judgement when dem picture release.
Last night while watching the news my attention was drawn to the story about a 52-year-old man who was beaten by resident of Kiloncoly District in St Mary.
Now what was so disturbing about the news is the fact that this man has been known to be fooling around little girls and little boys.
What eventually lead to his being beaten is the fact that he was in a house with a 16-year-old boy. His relative was looking for him and was drawn to strange sounds coming from the house.
The youth eventually came out and was seeing fixing his pants. Minutes later the elder man came out, it was then that an alarm was raised and he was pounced on by residents.
At a time when we are reading about being more sensitive to homosexuals and they are pushing for their rights…I have to ask the question, what rights do they want?
Do they want the right to corrupt your children, introducing them to a lifestyle they haven’t taken the time to think about?
The right to corrupt young girls and mess them up before they have a chance to mature?
The right to use a man or woman to hide the fact that they really gays?
What’s really going on? How come I am not hearing as loud a noise from the straight community as the homos are making?
Honestly, I wish someone would holla at me and tell me what’s really going on.
Jackass sey di world nuh level and a true. Look much respectable people yuh have out deh fi receive Order of Distinction and sometimes dem select some people whey nah set no example fi di youths dem and wuss when it come to dem people relationship it stink to high heaven.
Yuh have some whey step cross di lawn and receive dem OD (well in a fi dem case a Order of Duttiness) cause dem treat some a dem employees wuss dan dawgs and di poor employees dem nuh have nuh rights most a di times. And when dem open dem mouth fi chat dem tell dem sey dem can always find a next job…cause dem know sey job scarce and dem hold a stick over dem head.
Den yuh have di case in point a dis well know genius whey dem gi OD di odda day. Him have a wife whey live a Miami and dem married from Johnny was a bwoy and it look like him just ketch him age cause him have a son whey him 20-year-old bear him. Wi understand sey him and she mash up and him teck up a nex young ting.
Him wife fly in and discover di birth paper and call him fi ask him whey a gwaan. She ask if di marriage done and him sey “yes star it done!” just like dat brap.
No sah people caan cold suh…a just one ting we waan ask, when yuh get OD shouldn’t there be some kind a emphasis on good levity, morals and a stable family life? Mi nuh know…mi just a sey!
Bwoy what a piece a almshouse Winford Williams carry out Onstage man. Big and serious him really common out him programme when him gi LA Lewis suh much time fi talk bout him conflict with Mr G. But the thing that really crack mi up is when him sey him dere to address Mr G Brochure…now mi nuh know how dat word fit in, but mi assume it have something to do with the allegations whey Mr G did meck di week before. Plus him a talk bout di ongle way Mr G can get whey off di charges is if him agree to clash him at Sting on Boxing Day. Now Laing coulda suh careless fi set up dat…well unless him waan provide comic relief fi di Sting massive dem. Lawks, a week. If a laugh a pop up.
People, dem did say Kartel park Lisa Hype and she start get mawger-er and lose all ten pounds offa weh she no have already. But my girl smart, she never despair, she just do her chemical research and find a new bleaching cream and got her hairstylists and say 'gimme sumpen mad!' and her stylist go so baps, and flip inna a new ting, and shave off one side of her head and throw some colour inna it. And people, guess what? It connect. From she go studio the day, him all up inna her coolaid, and ah dance wid her and then ah she and him again. Yu nuh see how her career step up inna the last month, her song dem a shot, she gone a Bahamas gone perform and look fi her family, she tek the front page of the paper the other day and now she ah plan big birthday bash. Lisa Hype, tek yu forward, yu look good, yu bleaching reach and yu have the General heart inna yu hip pocket. A bayyy!!!!1
Bwoy caan tell unno how people tiad a di Gully, Gaza foolishness. Si deh wi hear sey Super Claude guh play di two a dem a one big posh dance a Texas and di whole a di people dem come offa di dance floor cause dem nuh war inna nuh dancehall mix up and ediot song when dem waan dance. A good ting Wee Pow was in di house and him put on some Ben E King and dem kinda classics and di Black and White Affair session nice again.
A lesson to selectors whey nuh know dis...when yuh have classic, big people sinting di ongle ting dem waan hear is good music...when yuh dancehall session den yuh can play dem cause dem dem audience deh nuh really care.
Bwoy wi hear sinting, but win uh too wah broadcast it too tough, but to tell di truth, we haffi extend sympathy to di DJ ex wife whey get pregnant fi one next DJ. We hear sey she lose di baby. Well a just suh life go sometimes.
A true…nah sah, mi nah believe dey one dey. Dem have it a talk sey di top entertainer have AIDS but him a hold it dung. No, mi nah talk di tiad rumour wid Elephant Man either, is one dat woulda shock unno fi find out. And di ting bout it is that it woulda real serious if a true cause di amount a woman whey him one sleep wid woulda mean sey a nuff nuff people a Jamaica and foreign get it through him alone. Dats why mi always sey ynuh, if unna a guh bat, go wid unno shield, cause just because artistes big and got money nuh mean sey unno can trust up unnoself to dem.
No bwoy, mi head a hot mi, in fact it still a spin from all a di mix up whey inna entertainment. Big big female dancer whey look sexy and ting, she just a go round and a sleep wid di entertainment personalities dem suh…from DJ to top man inna di biz. Yuh name it she nuh care, she just it fling it pon dem suh. My girl it nuh sound good, people a chat yuh nuff behind yuh back. Yuh look too good fi a guh around a gi whey tings careless suh. Lawks man, have some pride and focus pony uh career nuh!
Is how come certain DJ love lick out gainst homos and gwaan di most ways and mi buck up a few browning whey a chat how him get him groove on when him have sex wid har inna har bottom, lawks, mi caan tink bout it at all. It hot mi ynuh, cause mi did really rate deh DJ deh, but afta dis, mi just a wonda what’s di difference if you do a woman behind and a man own…nuh di same batty?
Bwoy mi a tell yuh when entertainer go fi live it up dem nuh easy at all. But come one man if you know you a sort out a certain waitress a yuh place nuh badda bring nuh warlord ex women and a gi har all a yuh attention. And it neva meck matters worse dat she keep referring to the barmaid as “kuh pon she tuh”.
An a nex ting, she know yuh get yuh groove on wid di bartender and she a duh di same ting wid yuh….suh why she a throw wud pon di odda woman.
Still wi haffi big yuh up fi skillfully keeping the peace and meck sure sey di situation nuh get outa hand.
What a way dem a try mek it look like say a straight people kill di British Consul man "John Terry",Yeh! di british who dem find dead di other day. Di foreign press fi stop these tings. Dem fi stop smear,Jamaican's wid di nastiness. Everybody know di man did gay and a one a im luva kill im. A nuh hate crime;it was a crime of passion,and di police know it to. A just true dem nuh really want to come out and say it.
Amidst a bevy of allegations that has the streets buzzing, dancehall artiste Sheldon Lawrence better known as Aidonia is now attempting to clear his name and add some clarity to the malicious accusations by unscrupulous personnel to taint his character.
It’s understood that following utterances made by the deejay at this Summer's Fullyloaded, where he said "Big up Bounty Killer", many have now taken it as a foregone conclusion that Aidonia has rejoined the ranks of the Alliance and is now the new ghostwriter responsible for the Bounty Killer diss tracks aimed at Vybz Kartel.
However Aidonia said he wants to make it clear to the public that though he respects the warlord for his contribution to the industry, he is not a part of the Alliance movement nor is he a Ghostwriter for the cross, angry deejay. "mi nuh know weh people get it fi say mi write song fi Killer fi diss Kartel ... mi even see it pon a site seh mi attack Kartel, I have nothing against Bounty nor Kartel, if the two ah dem feuding that is not my concern, a mi co-workers dem and I wish dem nothing but the best, right now a just music mi seh and J.O.P a that a my focus". - He added.

Conscious reggae artiste, Lutan Fyah, has reacted to reports that he had a physical altercation with a fan in Sweden last weekend.
The entertainer, who is in Europe on tour, allegedly boxed down a female fan at a venue recently. Lutan, however, has denied all knowledge of this incident.
“All that talk about me box dung woman in Sweden is foolishness,” the singer told YardFlex in an interview this week.
“First, I know nothing about that. There was no altercation with me and any woman in Sweden,” the dreadlocked entertainer emphasized.
He continued, “How could I have done something like this? Can a man hit a woman in Europe and not go to jail?” he queried.
Lutanwas emphatic in his pronouncement that “it is all lies. I know nothing about this,” he declared.
The artistes is continuing his our of Europe.
Reading the paper the other day I couldn't help but think to myself that this government is excelling when it comes to pressuring the poor. For donkey years the people of Portmore have been operating their bars, shops, hair salons, and doing their juggling to make a living...now at a time when the recession is battering everybody, they decide they are cracking down on them.
They claim they will have to stop operating businesses in their homes...although the homeowners have agreed that they will even pay a fee if it comes to the test.
Considering that a lot of folks are losing their homes, jobs and fighting hard to keep their heads above the waters it really sucks.
With their borrowing relationship back on with the IMF it is anticipated that things are gonna get tougher...so leave the people them let them try and make a living the best way they know how.
Yardflex understands that past Rising Star winner Christopher Martin has parted ways with his girlfriend of over three years.
According to our sources, even though the two are still on friendly terms the relationship is definitely over.
“Trust me, he couldn’t have found a nicer, more down to earth woman to deal with. She is real cool, not the type to be confrontational or in your face. It just goes to show that men don’t know what they want. I don’t think she saw this one coming at all,” our source revealed.
The source went on to add that Sasha (his ex girlfriend) resided in the States, but she would commute as often as she could to be with him.
Then she started hearing some rumours about his being involved with someone else. She kept asking him about it and he kept denying it that she was the only one.
A source close to the ex couple said they were not surprised when the relationship fell apart.
“She is such as decent girl that even after all that he has done, she has nothing but good things to say about him. I really don’t get it,” the source commented.
Yardflex understands that part of the problem could be because she was based in the States.
What is this we are reading about Junior Reid and owing the fisherman for over $45,000 for what he took when he held his birthday bash. For real when I read it, I had to think back to a about two years ago when this man came forward and said he owed him for equipment he rented for his studio. Up to the time of the article being posted he was still owed a large sum of money.
Now the fisherman taking the One Blood singer to court over his money. Yup according to the report in the Star Reid has been summoned to appear in the Linstead resident magistrate's court on September 7 for 45,000 worth of fish that he allegedly failed to pay for.
The allegation is that on June 6 the entertainer took fish from the complaint, Besta Llyod, with the agreement to settle after his annual show, Junior Reid birthday Bash: held the same day in Portmore. Having made a number of request for his money and receiving no favorable response from the artiste, legal redress was sought.
Yardflex came across this little gem and w just had to share it!!!
Unconfirmed reports out of Sweden are that one of reggae’s upcoming, conscious artistes boxed down a female fan at a venue in that country over the weekend.
It is alleged that the Rastafarian artiste, who is on an European tour, was “wifing up” the Swedish fan the entire time, but things took a turn for the worse when, at the end of the evening, she decided to leave with a member of the band.
“Him get mad and box her dung … straight a dutty,” an insider told YardFlex.
The artiste, who is of a “fiery” persona and has been hauled before the court in Jamaica for such charges — a case which was dismissed — reportedly felt that he was “dissed”.
“A people haffi beg har not to call police,” the source continued.
Efforts to get to the artiste’s management team proved futile.
On a serious note…wi can’t even write this in patois cause we want everyone to be able to read it and for you to holla us what you think.
Do you think it fair that some artistes who nothing much is going on for them to charge as much as $25,000 and we are not talking Jamaican, we are talking US…yes Uncle Sam. When one mediocre artiste charges that and he still has other acts to deal with…how does the promoter makes back their money. I think that it’s time promoters come together and keep dances instead of taking the loss for these unconscionable acts who not only wants to “dig out promoters eyes, but demands per diem, plus up to 10 hotel rooms, and top of the line first class tickets.
These conscious kings and queens and others come off like they care for the poor and they love their fans to the max…but when they charge these top of the line fees then promoters have no choice but to pass it on to the fans in ticket costs which sometimes prove too high…the promoter ends up losing their shirts, artistes get paid to perform to an empty house and fans do what they do best download songs and or buy the bootlegged copies.
Promoters should just keep dances and invest in selectors who will play their music and fans can enjoy themselves still.
It’s time for good sense to prevail. Everyone is feeling the recession, have some mercy…but then again…promoters should have more sense and invest their monies in a surer bet…leave the greedy artistes for now and let’s see how they like it when shows stop coming in.
Everybody a ask a how di rosie one so brazen. After har name call up and mek front page inna paper and people nuh stop chat bout har baby madda, Billie Jean kinda drama and how test come back and prove say a no dat deh entertainer deh a di baby puppa, the girl really hold har chin up high and come back a town a pose up side-a promoter. My girl, we know say you dun cute already but you muss have lickle shame and pride. No man, we couldn’t believe it when we see har a di celebrity football match wha day yah, well pose up and a gi laugh fi peas soup. Dat doan right. All Ele did deh deh. Mi hear some people did a ask if Ele did a go deejay di song when him call har name. But, fi real, mi tink sey she woulda tek it fi a big up.
Yardflex interviewed a young girl out of Montego Bay by the name of Shelly and honestly she had the strangest story to tell.
According to her, her life is a living hell right now as she feels she has been heavily scienced by one main member of the Alliance – Mavado.
She said that being a fan of the DJs in the group she couldn’t wait to go to a stage in Montego Bay where she first came in contact with Mavado.
“Him fi mi and like mi and start fi look mi and mi tell him sey mi have mi baby father and mi nuh interested inna no relationship,” she explained to Yardflex.
Shelly claimed that the Gully God did not take lightly to his advances being turned down and he told her that “mi a guh frig yuh up.”
According to her since then things have started to go downhill for her.
“If mi pickney fi get a money from foreign it nuh work out. A pure torment mi inna. Mi and people round mi caan gree. Mi nuh know everyting just mess up.”
Responding to Yardflex question on how the DJ would know where she lived to cause her to be in problems with her neighbours she quipped, “Mi nuh know it come een like sey a di ring whey him have one, it have certain powers…di first time mi si him mi sense something evil,” was the response.
Shelly says she just wants the haunting to stop and that she can go back to living in peace with her neighbours and her child can propser.
No man dis is outright almshouse and disrespect when a man lose him teeth and have to be appealing for its return. Yardflex a beg unno please, anybody find demself with more teeth dan dem shoulda have fi return the extra one to di rightful owna.
On a real serious note, di popular video man from Dutty Fridehz International Invasion is appealing to the public to return his teeth.
Peter aka Bump lose it on July 31 and unno caan miss it cause it have gold pon it and him have a feeling a one a di dancers dem teck it.
Wi nah cast nuh stone but a nuff dancer did inna di house such as Shelly belly, Muma dagga, Raqoon. Ila, Marvin and Terry. Unno help out di video man, cause maybe unno did si a likkle play go dung. But it come een like a not even him alone did have sinting happen to him wi alla hear sey Muma Dagga fell and broke her foot.
Wi hope di nex' post wi meck is fi sey di video man get back him teet
What’s the deal with Bar-Bee and gangsta rapper The Game. People are beginning to talk regarding her liaison with him.
The sexy dancehall diva has been spending a lot of time in Los Angeles, California these days, hanging out with Billboard riding rapper and actor, The Game. In fact, people are beginning to wonder what’s the deal with the two. Is the reggae princess hooking up with the gangsta rapper? The question was posed to her and she only laughed and said she has learnt her lesson the last time.
She wasn’t about to live her personal life in public again. “No comment,” was her response. What is confirmed, however, is that Barbee recently made a cameo appearance in The Game’s latest Hollywood movie, ‘House Arrest’. The movie – which also stars everyone’s favorite ‘Clueless’ girl Stacey Dash from the films ‘Chrome Angels’, ‘Phantom Punch’, Getting Played’ and the ‘CSI’ series – is described as a “dramedy” by director Billy Washington, and centers around a “high maintenance girl who meets a quick money scheming man.” Written by Andrea Weathersby, who also serves as an executive producer, ‘House Arrest’ is being executive produced by Cassius Vernon Weathersby. Weathersby has worked on such films as ‘You Got Served’ and ‘The Great White Hope’. The Game, who continues to develop his acting career, was last in the crime thriller ‘Street Kings’ alongside Keanu Reeves and Forest Whitaker. He has also starred in the movies ‘Waist Deep’, ‘Belly 2’, ‘Doctor’s Advocate’, among others, and featured in top ranking video games like ‘Grand Theft Auto’ and ‘Def Jam’. The Game’s top selling singles include ‘My Life’, ‘Games Pain’, ‘Hate It or Love It’, ‘How We Do’, ‘Dreams, ‘Lets Ride’, ‘Higher’, ‘One Blood’, among several others. According to sources, Barbee met The Game on her June 12 trip to California for the Junior Reid event.
That’s it…just when I think we have sunk as low as we can go along comes a story that forces me to reconsider that thought!
Reading the Star about the story where a mother and her son forced a 15-year-old girl to have an abortion because she became pregnant for him.
Now you tell me this big old bark who should know better and yet he had unprotected sex with the girl. First of all, the teen is underage so there shouldn’t have been any sexual relationship of the kind. The mother instead of telling her son to stand up to his responsibilities…cause heaven knows we don’t expect her to turn him in to the authorities, compound the error by forcing the child to have an abortions.
Looking at the ramifications…she could be emotionally scarred for the rest of her life, not to mention that the abortion could prevent her from having another child later in life.
What that mother should do is encourage her son not to get involved in relationships with underage girls…where are the mothers to be standing up for their little girls?
A what really tek place with the big big tapanaris celebrity priest? When we hear dis one we nah tell no lie, we did haffi shout out, My God! No sah, if a so it go, it really bad.

But a how him get so cayliss? Woi!!! Mi belly!!! Dis one is just too much. We haffi keep oonu posted cause it don’t look good at all.
