Would ask for your opinion but moretime people don't comment on blogs unless it one of the big ones

So, let the critiquing begin..... now!!!

Right, first things first, Lady Gaga?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! Get the mess outta here right this very precise second. What the hell are they playing at? Like who actually put her on the shortlist to get nominated and who ticked her name to go into the nominations? Come on, let be avin ya?

Second thing, in my humble opinion the following don't or haven't yet made MOBO (is it just initials now or have we forgotten it stands for Music of Black Origin?) Alesha Dixon, Jade Ewen, Alexandra Burke, Mr. Hudson, Dizzee Rascal, KanYe West & Akon.

The following haven't made enough music to warrant a place in there; surprise, surpise Jay-Z. I'll 'llow Jeremih due to him having an album (even though we know he's a one-hit wonder).

Lemar still makes music? Surely he got in there due to his relationship. I really like the guy, one of the nicest most down to earth artists I've met but his last album bombed. Beverly Knight has only just released her album right? Sistrin ting!

Once again they neglected the UK Funky movement

To the pluses, Reggae award is accurate (who wants to bet Sean Paul performs?), UK Act is a mad ting! Group of death ting. Drake will walk with something, Bashy could have won best album if it wasn't a fan voting. I'm not actually sure of the demographic who will vote but I'll go with Tinchy or N-Dubz.

I asked earlier, if a white person sung 'Bonkers' by Dizzee, Chip Diddy Chip - Chipmunk or Number 1 - Tinchy Stryder if it would qualify them for a MOBO? The answer to that is they most probably would if Lady Gaga does. That shut me up

So, Jamaican Music Is Currently Dominating UK Pop Chart

Based on official UK top 100 singles chart week commencing 15th April 1. Drake featuring Wizkid & Kyla Don't listen to the afrobeats or UK funky claims, Drake made a dancehall song with elements of the aforementioned. But I addressed that in the ' Mis-Appreciation of Jamaican Culture ' post. 2. Sia feat. Sean Paul - Cheap Thrills Sidenote: Song declined by Rihanna 5. Zara Larrson - Lush Life Sidenote: Allegedly a song declined by Rihanna. Not sure how true that is. 10. Rihanna feating Drake - Work (peak chart position 2) 13. Major Lazer feat. Nyla & Fuse ODG- Light It Up (peak chart position 7) Sidenote: Nyla is part of Brick & Lace fame. They dropped one of the best written dancehall pop crossover songs ever in Love is Wicked . I believe she's the singer although she singjay's on this. 26. Justin Bieber - Sorry (peak chart position 1) 39. AlunaGeorge feat. Popcaan - I'm In Control 43. Kygo - Stay (peak chart

About Chronixx Somerset House show: this is NOT a review

So basically, I went to Chronixx's show at the prestigious Somerset House on Sunday. Had the time of my life again. Decided I'm not gonna write a review on Monday because what else is there to say? I've seen him five times (six if you include the time babylon locked off proceedings cos of curfew in Jamaica. Seven if you include his appearance at Rebel Salute) and been impressed every time. How do I keep retelling the same story? "You have to see this guy. It is one of the best shows you will experience in these times," will forever be the moral. If you wanna read a review of this show  go here . You can take in my reviews of Chronixx in 2014 and 2013 . If you wanna do that and wanna hear what I've got to say, stay here.

Remember When Riddims Were King

Before you read, thank you for your interest and hope you enjoy. I actually fleshed it out into a book. You can get your copy from   Now for what you came here for... When Riddims Were King 23rd May 2020 will be remembered in history for one of the most epic events in one of our universe's darkest times. We will never forget the night dancehall kings and former extremely heated rivals, Beenie Man and Bounty Killer, battled on the Verzuz platform built by hall-of-fame producers, Timbaland and Swizz Beatz. An unfiltered, 360-degree view on Jamaican dancehall events was showcased; DJ’s and dancing (Beenie Man’s daughter Desha Ravers) to deejay’s clashing on the same riddims. The latter elements provided the jewels in the night’s highlight reel, and undoubtedly the best thing to happen on the Verzuz series. Word spread like guava jelly within the dancehall community and Jamaican diaspora upon announcement. Not only was it a clash between the longest and fier
