Ms. Triniti’s and Vybz Kartel’s hit single Lockdown is slated to premiere on Jamaican television this week.

 After an extensive delay, the much anticipated video for Ms. Triniti’s and Vybz Kartel’s hit single Lockdown is slated to premiere on Jamaican television this week.  The video was released earlier today on YouTube and has already been garnering strong reviews. For those of you can’t wait for the broadcast on your local TV stations, Noel McKinson, CEO of Powermack Promotions, and Bolan, the production team at Heart to Art Music, suggest that you check out the link to the official video on YouTube at YouTube_HearttoArt .  To view the YouTube HDversion, select the 720p option.

McKinson and Bolan are expecting the video for Lockdown, which is being described as a masterpiece from Russian director Vladimir Maslakov and as the Teacha’s best video to date, to top video charts across the Caribbean before making inroads on major networks outside the region.  And speaking of Kartel, the launch of the video for Lockdown should help brighten the mood on the Gaza Strip, which has been plagued by rumors of infighting and by a spate of defections from the Portmore Empire, and deflect attention away from the Teacha’s leading roles in some X-rated clips that have been circulating over the internet. 

On a related note, Heart to Art and Powermack are also using the premiere of Lockdown, which has just been added to Reggae Gold Japan, to relaunch the promotion for Deewaan’s Socaton Riddim, which features the aforementioned Lockdown and Rude, a new single from Nando (featuring Paashot). Rude will be available as a free download at MySpace_Heart to Art until April 15.

We must also congratulate Deewaan, whose remix of Lady Gaga’s Just Dance, was belatedly accepted as an official remix in November 2009. Rude is another spicy combination from Deewaan that looks set to make a name for Nando, a son of legendary Jamaican jockey, Winston “Fanna” Griffiths.  Rude is the first single from Nando’s debut EP, Look at all these Girls, which is slated for release on May 7, and which, along with Lockdown, will also be included on the compilation, Heart of Reggae, which is due out on April 30. 

Heart of Reggae is a cooperative compilation among Heart to Art, Barry O’Hare’s World-a-Muzik, Father Romie’s Exodus Nuclear Records, and Deejay Jay.  It will feature current hits from stars such as Capleton, Anthony B, and Vybz Kartel, along with classics from reggae stalwarts such as Luciano and Bushman.  Bolan believes that in this era where major-record companies are becoming less relevant to independent music producers, it is incumbent upon such producers to forge alliances with each other to market and distribute their products globally so as to be able to eke out a livelihood in this competitive and dynamic digital distribution and consumption age.

Internet scam affects Jah Cure - Money collected under false pretence for dubs, shows

Sadeke Brooks, Staff Reporter

Jah Cure

Continuing on a disturbing trend, reggae artiste Jah Cure was a victim of an online scam recently.

His publicist Robert Nesta Morgan said the fraud was detected last week after Jah Cure's manager Delmar 'Della Danger' Drummond received a call.

"Delmar noticed it last week when a promoter from Belize called him asking for the dub that he paid for. Delmar was shocked. He told them to notify the police," Morgan told THE WEEKEND STAR.

He said the perpetrator has been using the social networking website, Facebook, to collect money illegally. Morgan said the crook directed persons wishing to get dubplates, jingles, general info and 45s or make bookings to universaljahcure@live.com, which is an email address that does not belong to Jah Cure.

"Dubs are very expensive and can cost as much as J$1.3 million (US$15,000) depending on the artiste. We know of one person so far. We don't know who else might have been a victim 'cause nobody else has approached us," Morgan said.

"Nothing like this has ever happened with Jah Cure before. All we can do is go to the police. We can't refund what we didn't take."

Since the incident, Drummond, who is also the CEO of Danger Zone Music Group, has issued a statement via his Facebook page.

victim to impersonation

In it he said: "Please note that the Facebook page that uses the email address, universaljahcure@live.com, is a fraud page. It has been brought to my attention that the scammers on this page are trying or have collected monies from potential clients of mine. Please 'only' Danger Zone management or Sobe Ent, along with Caribbean Ent, are authorised to handle Jah Cure's bookings. My sincerest apologies to whomever has fallen victim to this scam."

Morgan said an email was sent to the Facebook owners yesterday reporting the incident. And, the page also disappeared late yesterday evening.

Selector Foota Hype also fell victim to impersonation on Facebook only last month. The person on his fake profile seemed to be collecting money and was also causing other problems.

"I have received calls from foreign, weh people a ask me bout how mi a look dem woman pan Facebook, people calling me bout how must I be putting disrespectful comments about dem on my Facebook page, which I have no idea about because I have no Facebook profile," he told THE WEEKEND STAR.

But Jah Cure and Foota Hype are just the latest victims of Internet fraud. Last year, Twin of Twins and Laden suffered a similar fate on another social networking website, Myspace
