KARTEL'S STATE OF MIND NOT ON THE "EMERGENCY"
Jamaican deejay Vybz Kartel aka Addi the Teacha still has not turned himself in to the authorities despite the fact that he has been named as a "major person of interest". The deejay met with his team of lawyers yesterday, but it is still not clear when he will go in to meet the police officers at the South St. Catherine headquarters in Portmore.
He has been quite active on his Blackberry though and published this message early this morning. It reads:
A State of Emergency is implemented to treat poor people and ghetto people like dogs. Take for example me. I am always in the public eye. Always going about my merry way, why is it that now is the time when they have an interest in me. when all human rights have been suspended? What has changed in the last 28 days about me to make me so interesting ? Interestingly enough I have not been to portmore in over two years yet it is portmore police who have taken interest in me and not st Andrew north where I have lived for the last 6 years. This is not the first time they have tried to tarnish my name. Few years ago They accused me, a man who cannot hide as I am a famous artiste as the killer of " nunu puss". ? They dragged me to horizon, kgn central, and gun court remand centre in one night, took me back to horizon the next day where I stayed for three days, then released me and said " oh sorry we made a mistake”. it is not the whole police force just a few bad seeds who have always been trying to damage my career by slandering me. so now is the opportune time to rake vybz kartel through the coal again and punish him unjustly. Use him as the example, posters boy for " bad bwoy artiste". Me can't take it no more. If I was doing something wrong I wouldn't even feel the way I'm feeling now.BB people, Please publish all of this so Jamaica people know what I'm going through. Better they just crucify me and done. send this message to everyone, b4 dem try frame me and kill me like the people dem in west Kingston.
MELLOQUENCE IS BIG ALREADY
Born Ramone Drake on February 25, 1987 in Linstead in the parish of St. Catherine, Jamaica, the artiste/songwriter got his musical calling at the age of 14. Ramone decided to take on a name that best suited his vocal style and way of putting melodies to his lyrics, hence the name Melloquence was born, a creative fusion of the words melody and eloquence.
He first came to the public’s attention when he made the top 10 on Magnum Kings and Queen of Dancehall competition, aired on TVJ. Although disappointed at his exit from the competition before being able t reach his full potential, the singer pledged to make his fans proud. Mellquence soon returned stronger and determined and has since gone on to write and record over 30 tracks. His ability to across the genres of music has impressed both music insiders and listeners alike.
Since signing to the UK-based Big Already Entertainment in 2009, he has released number of commercial tracks that have enjoyed excellent reviews both nationally and internationally. The ever popular Royal Woman continues to be played and requested at live events and despite little promotion the 2009 release of No Get Away peaked in the download charts at #6 this was to be followed with the highly-rated return to Reggae follow up # Fool for Love.
“I am comfortable with my management team,” Melloquence declared. “Big Already is not about hype, it is about making good music, and that is what the business needs right now,” he emphasized.
The club banging Take You Home sees Melloquence career hit the big screen with his debut video directed by Janelle Dyer.
