  1. So what happened to Chi-Ching Ching????... He is one of the best newcomers I've seen in a while on the dancehall scene... I am a dancehall selector, radio presenter and journalist in the UK and I spent six months in Jamaica and from that day to this I have not heard his name stop calling on Kingston roads, at dances, tv, radio, mix cd's and all manner of media. He is the most unique and authentic dancer/hype/slang creator I have seen since 'Bogle' (RIP)... I am confused can somebody enlighten me?... This prolific young man who I had the privelege to interview is a very dedicated artist who is proud of the Jamaican tradition of dance and really has been taking it to the world!... Where is the love?...
