One more bail for Vybz Kartel 2 down one more to go

KINGSTON - GLEANER. Dancehall entertainer Vybz Kartel has been granted bail in the conspiracy case against him.

Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer was granted bail in the sum of $500,000 with sureties.

He is facing the charge of perverting the course of justice.

As a condition of his bail, Kartel is to report to the Constant Spring police station daily until January 25, when he is again scheduled to appear in court.

He has also been instructed to surrender his travel documents and a stop order placed on him.

The bail application was made by his attorney Christian Taveres-Finson.

However, the entertainer is unable to take up bail as he is also at the centre of two murder cases.

Kartel, is jointly charged with associate Andre Henry alias 'Pim Pim' and fellow entertainer Vanessa Saddler, more popularly known as Gaza Slim.

Bail was also extended for Henry and Saddler when they appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court this morning.

It is alleged that Kartel and his co-accused were a part of a plot to undermine a police investigation into the murder of Clive 'Lizard' Williams.

Kartel and four other men are before the Home Circuit Court on a charge of murder in relation to the death of Williams.

Pamputae Kissing a next Girl Raises Questions

It is said that the kiss was out of an overwhelming moment of emotions. It is also said that the picture was doctored up and is perhaps not real. There were also speculations that this kind of thing (dancehall female artiste kissing another girl) is bringing down dancehall further in the doldrums where the likes of Vybz Kartel had it. And of course statement like these will get the likes of Dianna King riled up... there are speculations that Dianna King had influence here.
There are however those who are very much enjoying the moment... im sure since Busy Signal return from jail he should be feeling really good seeing this kind of stuff..he said so in this song a few years back that he likes girls that like girls...

Busy Signal Back from Jail AGAIN..back in Jamaica

Busy Signal praise to JC for his return
KINGSTON - STAR, Dancehall artiste Busy Signal returned to the island a free man last night after serving two months in a United States (US) prison.

Busy Signal, whose real name is Glendale Gordon, flew into the island last night and posed for a photo with Elephant Man and manager Shane Brown. He later tweeted on his Twitter account "Guess who is back! God is GOOD!" Busy's return was apparently well greeted in entertainment circles with several persons posting the photo he took along with Elephant Man and Shane Brown on their BlackBerry Messenger as a profile picture.

The artiste had been sentenced to six months in prison after pleading guilty to absconding bail. He had received a six-month prison sentence. He, however, only served two months, as he had already spent four months in jail awaiting his trial.

The artiste had been given 45 days to return to Jamaica upon his release but obviously flew home immediately. If he had remained in the US beyond that, he could have been arrested on drug charges. In May, the artiste was arrested at the Norman Manley International Airport in Jamaica on an extradition warrant from the US. He declined to contest his extradition to the US from where he fled 10 years ago while facing drug charges.
Busy Signal was extradited to the US on June 19, after his legal team argued that he could only be charged with absconding bail as was outlined in his extradition papers.

Selector Beaten to sickness for Playing Tommy Lee songs

Star Kingston - One man was seriously injured at a 'wake' held in the community of Flankers, Montego Bay, St James, after thugs demanded that a selector stopped playing Tommy Lee songs.
Information reaching our news team is that the community now rests in fear, as there is an apparent divide in support for the dancehall artiste.
It is reported that a wake for an elderly woman was in session on Saturday night, when the selector was asked not to play anymore Tommy Lee tunes.
The selector, our news team was told, did not take heed to the warning, as another song for the artiste was selected, following which the said selector was subsequently roughed up by a hostile group of people.
Several persons reportedly intervened, and the group left the area and returned, opening fire on the gathering.
Our news team understands the incident took place in a section of the community called Vietnam, the zone which is considered Tommy Lee's 'Sparta Base'.
A resident of the community expressed, "True ting man. Man nose get shoot off, finger gone and mi hear even ears! ... The irony is dat is dung pon Tommy Lee base."
gunshot wounds
THE WEEKEND STAR was told that when the group returned, several shots rang out and when the shooting subsided the man was found suffering from gunshot wounds all over his body.
Our news team was told that he was rushed to the hospital, however, the extent of his injuries are unknown.
THE WEEKEND STAR spoke to a member of the gathering who expressed, "Mi nah lie to yuh a town mi leave from go MoBay and mi never know a so di yute dem dung deh gwan over certain things ... It serious we haffi tek weh we self and go elsewhere that night ... A morning we wake and hear say di breda drop out ... then we hear afterward that him nuh dead, he is in serious condition in hospital."
A senior officer attached to the Montego Bay Police Division confirmed the shooting incident, however, he was tight-lipped when quizzed on the motive for the shooting.
He said, "The police are aware of such reports and that at least two persons have been held so far for questioning in relation to the shooting ... I was not on duty on the weekend so I could not confirm the reason for the attack."
"True ting man. Man nose get shoot off, finger gone and mi hear even ears!"

Betweenie Man under fish pressure once again

DAYS after a scheduled performance in northern California was scrutinised by a gay rights group deejay Beenie Man is facing more pressure from the gay community in the United States.
The Gay Liberation Network (GLN) is protesting his November 22 performance at The Shrine in Chicago, citing Beenie Man's past criticism of homosexuals.
In a letter posted on the website, the GLN demands that Beenie Man's show be cancelled.
"I wish it were possible to say that this artist performs music that is simply engaging entertainment with a great beat and sometimes gritty lyrics. Sadly, this is not the case due to Beenie Man's history of frequent calls for violence against gays and lesbians. Such calls are anything but 'entertainment' when directed against a vulnerable and oppressed minority," read the letter.
The Shrine event is promoted by Ephraim Martin, head of the annual International Reggae and World Music Awards (IRAWMA).
Beenie Man has made attempts to mend fences with the enraged gays. He was one of several dancehall performers who signed the Reggae Compassionate Act in 2007, and recently issued a video apology to gay activists prior to his performance at the Rototom Festival in Spain.
But the GLN is not buying the gestures, claiming they are not genuine.
"Because of his advocacy of violence toward our people and his chequered and inconsistent relationship to the global LGBT community, we respectfully request that management of The Shrine show its respect for our community and rescind its offer to have Beenie Man perform at its venue. We would be happy to sit down with you to discuss this matter further," the GLN stated in its letter.
Beenie Man's show in Trinidad, California, at the Ocean Grove Lodge attracted mild opposition from the Queer Humboldt group.
Dancehall artistes Buju Banton, Capleton, Elephant Man and Sizzla have also had run-ins with gay activists in Europe and North America.
Sustained pressure from groups in both continents forced promoters to cancel several of their shows.

Vybz Kartel misery continues

KINGSTON OBSERVER - THE trial of jailed dancehall entertainer Vybz Kartel on a charge of perverting the course of justice suffered yet another delay when the matter was mentioned Monday in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court.
The trial was scheduled to begin Monday but was postponed for mention on November 26 to facilitate the disclosure of two outstanding statements to the defence. A new trial date is expected to be scheduled on the next date.
Kartel, whose real name is Adijah Palmer, is jointly charged with Andre Henry alias 'Pim Pim' and fellow entertainer Vanessa Saddler, more popularly known as Gaza Slim. However, bails for both Henry and Saddler were extended Monday while Kartel was remanded into custody.
The two accused were charged last December while Kartel was in custody for the alleged murder of Clive Williams.
According to police reports, on October 29 Gaza Slim filed a report at the Constant Spring Police Station claiming that Williams had robbed her.
However, investigators alleged that they later found out that the report was false and that the three had fabricated the story to mislead the police into believing that Williams was not dead.
Williams was allegedly taken to a house in Havendale, St Andrew, last year August and beaten and stabbed to death over claims by his aggressors that he had lost an illegal gun.
Also charged with Williams' death are fashion stylist Calvin 'Moonie' Haye, deejay Shawn "Shawn Storm" Campbell, Khaira Jones, Shane Williams, and Andre St John who are scheduled to return to the Home Circuit Court on January 21 for trial along with the artiste.
In the meantime, Kartel is to return to court on December 3 for trial on a second murder charge with Nigel Thompson and Lenburgh McDonald in relation to the July 2011 shooting death of Barrington 'Bossie' Bryan.

Sean Paul cell phone stolen with Beyonce number in it

According to reports Sean Paul said he's done everything he can in dancehall music and is now aiming for more mainstream success.

Sean Paul said he's done everything he can in dancehall music.

The Jamaican star - best known for dancehall and reggae hits such as 'Gimme the Light' and 'Got 2 Luv U' - is hoping to branch out and work with more mainstream producers.

He told website "I have reached a point where I don't have to prove myself to anybody in dancehall or reggae music. I'm up there with the best of them, so right now I'm just expanding. I'm trying to bridge the gap, broaden my artistry."

The 39-year-old worked with Swedish production team Stargate and other international producers on his recent fifth studio album, 'Tomahawk Technique', so it would sound more "international".

He added: "I noticed that of late a lot of pop music has had dancehall influences, so I asked some big name producers like Stargate, Rico Love, DJ Ammo and Benny Blanco to make their interpretation of a dancehall beat."

The 'She Doesn't Mind' singer's is also conscious that his biggest hits have been collaborations with other stars such as when he worked with Beyonce, 31, on her 2003 single, 'Baby Boy'.

He said: "I've always said two is better than one. Collaborating helps creative exchanges happen and helps take the tempo to a different level altogether."

"I have however noticed that most of my biggest hits are with women artists - Blu Cantrell, Beyoncé, Keyshia Cole, Alexis Jordan. So, it's all about the chemistry and I am a lucky man. Collaboration is the best way to expand."

Sean recently collaborated with former 'X Factor' judge Kelly Rowland, 31, on 'How Deep is Your Love'

Khago Robbed to the bone... betrayed?

It was recently reported that Dancehall/reggae artiste Khago was robbed earlier in the week at the construction site of his unfinished house in Mandeville, Manchester. According to the Nah Sell Out singer, members of his staff were robbed of cellphones and a bicycle.

"Mi just guh pon di site and gunman run een sey dem a look money, about six a dem wid gun," Khago said.

"Dem butt up one a mi cousin wid gun and tek wey phone and bicycle when dem nuh get nuh money, but I didn't lose anything else from the property because most of the things dem too heavy to move," he said.

According to the artiste, he feels violated because he is trying hard to make a better life for himself.

"I feel violated still because from mi start build mi house a bare things start happen. When a nuh police a gunman, when yu a suffa you and everybody good, but as yu start mek a money inna life yu and everybody inna problem," Khago said.

Khago believes he was set up by some of his own associates.

"More time yu same friend dem sell yu out. Because mi just buy some tiles fi tile out mi madda house and I rarely stay at that house. Suh how much man woulda know sey mi come home wid things?" he questioned.

However, the reggae artiste says he will remain focused on his goals and will not be distracted.

"Right now mi haffi just gwaan duh mi ting and nuh let people break mi, because a try dem a try discourage mi. The matter was reported to the police station and I will continue to strive to be the best that I can be. Some people just don't want to work in order to make it, they want to survive by taking your things or threatening your life," he said.

Checks made with the Newport police in Manchester confirmed that a report was in fact made. However, according the police, the report was incomplete as the two persons who were actually robbed, were not present at the time the report was being made.

In the meantime, Khago is gearing up for performances at Sting and GT Taylor's Christmas Extravaganza. He is also expected to perform in Belize next week, then on to the United States, before closing off the festive season with shows in England.

The two who are rumoured to be going to Uganda on 31st December i.e. new year's eve and are expected to rock Uganda to the fullest without a doubt.
However,  Mavado is said to have called of the concert. "He told the organizers that he had consulted Konshens, who was in Uganda earlier and wanted his pay increased by thousands of dollars, if he is to perform on New Year's eve," a source in Jamaica was quoted.

Sean Paul 100million youtube view reggae man for Uganda Show

0bserver: Jamaican singer Sean Paul has confirmed his third visit to Kampala in a concert slated for November 9 at the cricket oval, in a Club beer-sponsored event. Sean Paul made this announcement at a recent Jamaican concert in Washington DC at Fillmore Silver Spring.

The dancehall icon whose Got 2 Luv U single hit a record 100 million views on YouTube, is said to be the most popular Jamaican singer now, since the single upstaged Bob Marley's classics, No Woman No Cry and One Love that held onto the top spot for a while.

Sean Paul and Shaggy, whose 1990s hit single Angel, are the only Jamaican artistes to ever cross the 50 million mark on YouTube. And before Sean Paul can even fully loosen up in his latest piece of success, another single off the same album She Doesn't Mind is closing in on the 100 million views mark.

The song's video currently stands at a staggering 95 million views. And the audio and video hits combined currently stand at 150 million. So, does anyone still wonder why guys are falling over themselves to pay that Shs 25,000 for the Kampala show?
