We Pay Tribute To The Late @_KennyRogers In Reggae Style


While the world is on standby with this Coronavirus Pandemic, the music scene woke up to news of the passing of Country Music Icon, Kenny Rogers. With a career spanning decades, the legend passed away on March 20 at the age of 81. One Country that mourns his passing is Jamaica as his music touched many people of all ages through the years. Like Canadian Singer Celine Dion, Kenny Rogers became an honorary Jamaican, and was emulated by many Artists including the late Moses Samuels a.k.a. “Reggae Rogers, a popular Recording Artist/MC from Clarendon. Kenny Rogers even set up shop here with his “Kenny Rogers Roasters” franchises. Today, we pay tribute to this great man with a collection of Reggae covers by some of your favourite Artists.

We Salute @Aidonia4thGenna’s Career In Our Latest Playlist!


If you have heard “J.O.P.!“, “Bushkash Bushkash“, “So Sick…“, “1 Voice…“, “Bad people, move move move…” and “Start di Helicopter…” at some point your Dancehall music listening sessions, then you have experienced some of Dancehall Artist Aidonia’s great works! The man born Sheldon Aitana Lawrence, has been a mainstay since his ascent onto the scene in the early 2000s. If you were looking for lyricism, a voice that commanded attention, and something new, Aidonia was one of the few who checked all three over the years and had hits to boot.

Today’s post pays tribute to the man who had folks saying “J.O.P.” over the wildly popular “Gaza” and “Gully” with the easily recognized hand sign. With our latest Playlist, we let you in on the works from “The 4th Genna Boss“! With over 6 hours of hits from bad man tunes to gal songs, the only ones didn’t make it aren’t available for streaming. With folks out here trying to discredit Aidonia’s contribution to Dancehall, you need people like to appreciate and recognize his works that weren’t in vain.
