Mavado talks Vybz Kartel and more

Winford is Jamaica's King of Entertainment. His weekly show Entertainment Report is a must-see each Friday on CVM

I'll be honest I don't know what channel this show comes on, guessing it's the same channel but (The Rock voice) "It doesn't matter!"

First of two part;

In part 2 Mavado speaks

  • His charity in schools
  • Gully vs. Gaza fighting in schools
  • Names his favourite Vybz Kartel song
  • International collaborations with hip-hop and R&B A-list
  • Speaks to the youths

Anyone who knows me personally knows I always said Mavado will beome the biggest thing from dancehall since Sean Paul (I endorse Damian Marley but he isn't from the dancehall scene). I am proud to hear he is working with those big-name artists such as Drake and Alicia Keys and to a lesser extent Maino.

You may disagree with his controversial songs, but remember where he comes from; his mindstate reflects that. In recent times as his circumstances and experiences have changed, so has his subject matter. He deals with much more uplifting songs in comparison to when he first buss. Comes across genuine and even though he isn't the most eloquent he gets his point across well. Wish I could speak patois. He's also much more mature than Kartel. Notice Mavado addresses Kartel as Addi, whereas Kartel refuses to call Mavado anything other than "Di Barber". Shows who values the war ting more. Who remembers when Kartel used to call Mavado the singer? That all changed since he himself has become one don't?

Julian, link up the interview. Been promoting Mavado from day. Safe

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 www.nolongstories.com   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
