Spotlight Kunta Kicks Off Instagram Dance Competition To Promote New Single


Fresh on the heels of announcing his upcoming debut performance at Reggae Sumfest, and in an effort to boost his hot new single Annie, Dancehall Artist Spotlight Kunta has launched an Instagram Dance Competition to unleash the creativity of his female fans. The winning prize package is a combination of US$500 and appearances as his World Tour Ambassador.

The third place prize is an appearance in the official Annie music video; while second place includes an appearance in the Annie official music video, plus a spot as a World Tour Ambassador.

The “Annie Dance Competition” will run for two weeks, starting June 23 and ending at midnight on July 7. Contestants can enter by creating a dance routine to Annie, uploading to Instagram, tagging @Spotlightkunta, and using the hashtag #spotlightkunta. The Artist will then repost the video to his page, where each contestant will be required to get likes/votes for the video. The person with the most likes will win the prize, however Spotlight Kunta and his management team reserve the right to determine the final winner.

Spotlight Kunta whose given name is Stennett Harris said Annie has been gaining traction on the local and International airwaves and party scene since its release. The track which is on the Rula Riddim, is produced by Cornelius Daley of Cornelius Records, and showcases the diverse talent of the Artist. He shared, “I’m proud of the progress of the single, and the feedback I’ve been getting globally. Everybody love it, and di woman dem inna di party a go crazy when it play.”

His Producer, Daley who has been working with him close to two years commented, “I see him as a promising talent because he has good work ethics and his own signature sound. As far as we see it this track is loved by all females, especially the Dancers. We have seen countless video performances by Dancing Rebel, Chin Unique, DHQ Tallup and a few dance routines from Europe, including Sweden and France. All routines have been well received.”

Born in Kingston and partially raised in Linstead, St. Catherine, Spotlight Kunta migrated to the Unites States of America at age 11, but has always been true to his roots. His first hit Guinness which was produced by Chester Walker in 1999 was used in a local Guinness Ad Campaign. He has been on the music scene for more than 15 years, and after a long hiatus, he is back in the studio recording, and promoting. “This Instagram Dance Competition is my way of telling all my female fans that I see and feel the love, and I want to show some appreciation. Right now mi just want dem get creative, and put out dem best performance so dem can win di prize.”

@SpiceOfficial: The Dancehall Queen Of The Stage!


We salute the “Stage Show Boss” in this post. As the saying goes, “Give people Flowers while they can still smell them”. Big up Spice!

The Throne for the Dancehall Queen is currently vacant, and there could only be one who ascends to claim her rightful place at the top of Dancehall. The genre is now in the Era of “The Spicy 1“, and though her given name is Grace Latoya Hamilton, we know her as Spice! Never been far from the spotlight, Spice proved time and time again that she’s in a lane of her own with no contenders. From acting, to singing, deejaying, to dancing, she’s multifaceted and continues to have an edge among her peers.

Words by King David x SwadeDaVillain

Since her debut, Spice has always been one to push boundaries in Dancehall as a Female Artist. She will always be known for being different whether it be for the colour of her hair, her unique outfits, or her many stand out singles. Among her Dancehall peers, she has never been afraid to outperform them, whether male or female. Her various Clash appearances, “War” records and counteractions are proof of this. Bounty Killer, one of her earliest mentors, hailed her as one of the “Baddest” acts before she even scored her first hit.

The Best Dressed Chicken, a coordinator of the ‘Nuh Dutty Up Jamaica’ Cleanup Network recently partnered with Wisynco Eco Club and Citibank to host a beach clean-up with over 200 volunteers at the Old Harbour Bay Fishing Village.

At sunrise, the team descended on the fishing village, equipped with shovels, wheelbarrows, rakes, and other tools dedicated to their mission. From plastic bags and bottles to Styrofoam containers and clogged gutters, the volunteers spared no effort removing garbage from the beach which is occupied by more than 150 vendors and workers.

“Old Harbour Bay is vital to the economic and social life of many people. It’s also the community that The Best Dressed Chicken calls home. It was important for us to lead the cleanup, and also hopefully, inspire change for the future care of the beach,” said Joan Forrest-Henry, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, The Best Dressed Chicken.
