The Queen of Dancehall, Spice, honors Vybz Kartel on Reggae Sumfest stage.
Spice has become a household name in the annual Reggae Sumfest lineup. Much like her performances at the popular festival in preceding years, the “Cool It” DJ dedicated a segment of her time on stage to the great Vybz Kartel. The self-proclaimed ‘female boss’ delivered a remix of a popular Kartel song and praised the deejay for being the most influential dancehall. This year, Spice chose Vybz Kartel popular hit “Any Weather” and had listeners clinging to every word of her story as she reminded everyone that she is a die-hearted Gaza fan.
As Spice celebrates Vybz Kartel for his mark on dancehall, she also denounced other female deejays who she said don’t even compare to her footwear or undergarments. She also shared her respect for other industry legends like Sizzla, Beres Hammond, Bounty Killer and more.
The sentimental performer spoke briefly about Vybz Kartel being the first person to give her that big break and consequently her most acclaimed record. With Kartel’s portrait hung reverently on a widescreen in the background, Spice said, “Wul heap a people ask me why mi support Kartel so much because he gave me my first international recognition. “A song that will never die. Mi afi loyal to a man wah tek mi up and seh ‘come mek we do da song ya’ so nuh ask mi why mi seh Gaza. With that being said…” before giving a rendition of that collaboration as well.
The performer had her audience raving when she played more Vybz Kartel solo tracks. “Anyhow Kartel did deh ya him afi seh sumn so since as dem lock him up, dem cya lock up him voice. Leggo a Kartel.” Backup dancers were compelled to rejoin Spice on stage for a moment given the infectious nature of the atmosphere as the World Boss’s vocals filled the Catherine Hall Entertainment Complex.
Dedicated Gaza fans must indeed appreciate Spice’s unrelenting will to make Vybz Kartel a part of Sumfest every year.

Demarco ‘The Dancehall Rick Ross’ Details Massive 80 Pounds Weight Loss
Demarco, aka the Rick Ross of dancehall, lost a ton of weight and now he is detailing his fitness regime.
Multi-talented dancehall artist Demarco recently returned to Jamaica from the United States looking a lot slimmer than before. The deejay/producer sat down with Anthony Miller of Entertainment Report where he detailed his massive weight loss. The artiste, who boasts hits such as “True Friends” and “Fallen Soldier,” spoke about his skills, which include producing.
Demarco mentions that he is the creator of the riddim “Jambe An,” which features the Diamond selling hit song “Party Animal” by Charly Blacks. He shared his new-found knowledge of the music industry, stating that music goes beyond just merely making music and performing on stage. There is the production aspect, as well as what comes after, such as song royalties and publishing.
Demarco, who firmly believes that he cannot fail in the music industry, set himself on a pedestal securing his future by establishing a publishing company and a record label. He can also add songwriter to his repertoire as he has co-written a new dancehall song for Rihanna who has recently been dubbed the richest musician in the world. Maro also currently has a new song with Yanique Curvy Diva.
So it is without a doubt that Demarco is truly a remarkable dancehall artist. But his greatest accomplishment yet has nothing to do with music but is in fact about his incredible weight loss. The artist highlighted that “slim is in,” and he has lost about 80 lbs to date. He is currently a vegetarian and makes time in his busy schedule to visit the gym 2 to 3 times per week. The artist stated that good health is essential. He also strives to maintain an appealing appearance for his female fans.
The artist who has been diagnosed with diabetes is making the right choices to be a better person and live a better life. His mind-blowing transformation renders many speechless, leaving them in awe. The artist who prides himself as a genuine singer says that even when his music does not circulate in Jamaica, it will still receive international success and recognition. He also shares the same sentiments with popular dancehall legend Sean Paul saying that speaking proper English is important in crossing over. The chorus of your song has to be easily understood for your song to make it in the International market. The artist closed by saying he currently weighs about 230 lbs, and his ultimate goal is to be 200 lbs, but he has no time limitations on achieving it.
Be on the lookout for his upcoming collaboration with Chronic Law and to see where his incredible weight loss journey will take him.
Konshens Drops “Dancehall Love Story” Visual And It’s Pure Fire
What’s your dancehall love story?
Konshens is once again the talk of the town, and this time it’s for his music and not what he is wearing. The dancehall artiste dropped a new song titled “Dancehall Love Story” on his Vevo channel. The track, which was released on Friday, already has nine thousand views and climbing. The video for the song is pretty impressive, and it is not your typical music video but comes across as more of a short film.
The concept of the video is basically about two friends who visit Jamaica on vacation from abroad. One of the women, who was hesitant about coming to Jamaica meets a local man at a party, and they hit it off. This begins the dancehall love story, and the video chronicles their time together during the trip.
The song was produced by Submachine, Ridwaan Razak and Y.G.F Records is lining up to be the ultimate song to close out the summer. Konshens did hit all the right notes with this one but should’ve released it earlier in the summer.
The track gives off major Vybz Kartel vibes and is one that will surely do well on the international market. It is a high energy, feel-good love song with great lyrics and is just what we have come to expect from the deejay.
Konshens has been in the public eye for some time now due to his back and forth drama with local artiste I-Octane and Demarco for their criticisms about his fashion choices and his decision to pierce his nose.
Hopefully, this song is just the beginning of more to come from this talented artiste.
