SINGER/songwriter Nesbeth is riding the charts with Ole Ganga Lee, which has renewed interest in the term made famous by deejay Louie Culture 22 years ago.
Nesbeth says the song was actually inspired by Louie Culture's hit of the same name.
"The Louie Culture song is about standing up for what one believes so I incorporate that message in my song," he told the MEDIA.
According to Nesbeth, Ole Ganga Lee was recorded 18 months ago but recently released. On the heels of its success is the follow-up single, Taste Victory, released two weeks ago. Both songs are on his new label, Entertainment Soul, headed by New England-based producer, Shanika 'Eccentrik' Dobson.
Nesbeth believes the partnership is what he has been waiting for since starting in the business in 2003.
His first single was for Patrick Roberts' Shocking Vibes label, a moderate hit titled So Let It Be (I Love Her, She Loves Me).
His career revved up in 2007, when he joined Stephen 'Flava' McGregor's No Doubt label, and made his name with Board House.
He followed with Guns Out, which addressed violence in inner-city communities like Arnett Gardens and Maxfield Avenue, where he grew up. He left No Doubt two years later, because he felt McGregor was too busy with his growing number of artistes, to focus on his career.
Nesbeth next joined the Jan Bigs label and had two successful songs in A Nuh Suh Mi Waan Live and Drive By.
Blaqy’s Money Maker might have been banned on the mainstream media but it is receiving a rather warm reception amongst its YouTube fans with a close to 60,000 views within its third week of placement.
Mainstream media may not tolerate any form of video that it is likely to have inclination towards nudity but guess where these video thrive; the YouTube. Actually I have come to think of it; when any of the controversial video is banned on the mainstream media, actually it gets whooping views on YouTube as it suddenly goes viral. First there was P unit’s You Guy that got banned and it got 225,921 views over a span of a year on YouTube, then Sautisol’s Nishike video followed suit with 726, 144 views in just three months and now Blaqi’s.
Blaqy’s Money maker video attracted a lot of thumps down especially from the mainstream media and was henceforth blacklisted among not to be played video. I sort to inquire why this particular video was being banned from the mainstream media and here is the response: Dj Joe Mfalme explained he could not play Blaqy’s video because it had a lot of nudity and playing it would get him to trouble with the media house management while as for Kiss TV’s DJ Hypnotiq; Blaqy’s video did not meet the quality and the concept and content did not make the cut point (Being moral accepted standard)
Tanzanian songstress Ray C has revealed that she has recorded ten songs that she intends to release during the entertainment peak season.
The singer who fell from glory after getting hooked to drugs that cost her fame and fortune. Ray C revealed to Spora that she sold her house and closed all her business after she went bankrupt as a result of drug addiction. "I lost everything i had because i used money to buy drugs".
Ray C said at the time she got introduced to drugs she thought she was smoking bhang. "We would be relaxing in the living room and my then boyfriend Lord Eyez would pass me a blunt, and seeing no harm i would puff abit". The former wasp waisted singer says she only realised she was hooked when her body system failed to function without the drugs.
She however says she has forgiven Lord Eyez and hopes he too can leave drugs one day.
Fans at the recently concluded Ekigunda show went into hiss-terics over non venomous snake that was brought on stage by Sarah Namukwaya well known as G-Snake The forever upcoming singer felt that she would steal the show by getting the snake on stage since her songs are not the best
The three-foot long snake made its way to the stage and people were shocked to see a young girl freely holding and playing with this reptile.
The Upcoming Artiste who joined the music industry in October 2010 and to date she has three songs but surprisingly, she can’t do without her snake, so if she is to perform anywhere, she must be equipped with one of her reptiles.
Two years ago, 'clubbers' were intoxicated by My Cupp, an uptempo party song that introduced singer Richie Loop.
His latest songs are a departure from that breakthrough hit and previous recordings which were done to computer-generated beats.
From di Ghetto, which is recorded on Gully Bank Musik Ltd's live Liberty Hall 'riddim', is an introduction to the new Richie Loop.
"I neva waan be jus' a dancehall artiste...mi waan do a country album, a pop album. Mi jus' waan do music," he said.
Given the party flavour of songs like My Cupp and Party Like It's Your Birthday (which he did with D Major and Busy Signal), Richie Loop says it took some effort convincing producer David 'Scorpion' Harris of Gully Bank Musik, to let him take a crack at the Liberty Hall.
"When him finally hear the tune, him shock," Loop recalled. "But mi always waan record songs dat cover all topics... girls tune, social commentary..."
Fire di Ghetto and other songs on the Liberty Hall are expected to be released this month.
My Cupp remains Richie Loop's biggest hit. Inspired by a television interview with rapper Li'l Wayne, the song was produced by Big Yard Entertainment.
Though that company was responsible for most of Richie Loop's early productions, the Jones Town-born artiste had recorded self-produced songs while living in the Longville Park area of Clarendon.
From di Ghetto is the first in a series of songs produced by Gully Bank Musik, recorded on live roots beats dedicated to Pan African giant Marcus Garvey.
"Is a new phase an' mi very excited 'bout it. Mi caan wait fi dem drop," he said.
