Here on Onstage she speaks on her new single “Ugly Girl“, her career so far, her greatest moments in her career, aiming to bring more positive and empowering music, and fighting against violence against women. A good interview here, IKaya also premiered her “Ugly Girl” music video. IKaya is a dope artist and I do wish her more success in the future.

While she gave you “Rude Boys“, Toian was getting the 2nd single ready for your ears and now here it is. Titled “Love It” and produced by Class One Music, Toian continues where she left off with “Rude Boys” and picks up the pace here. She shows love to the Marverley Rude Boys and says she wants to be “More than your likkle browning“. Loving this track as it gives off a retro vibe and with the previous efforts getting good reception, “Retrospect” will definitely be in heavy rotation when it drops on March 17. Check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.

Cleaning up the airwaves and delivering more positive music is Alpha Rowen’s mission and on Onstage he speaks on it and more. Here he spoke on the mediocrity in Jamaican music, lack of support for positive music, his career in Jamaica and in the UK, challenging artists to do better, his single “Man Feelings” and more. Interesting interview here, Alpha Rowen has made some strong statements and I believe there will be a gradual shift in the music scene very soon and he can greatly benefit.
