OLDIES SUNDAY: Locksley Gichie & The Zion Boys – Teach The Children (1974)


In recognition of May being Child’s Month, our Oldies Sunday selection comes from Locksley Gichie of the UK band The Cimarons along with The Zion Boys. Titled “Teach The Children“, this was produced by Kush and released through Harry J Records in 1974. The song calls for listeners to raise children in the right ways, know GOD, teach them how to be creative and make their world a better place, and help them to spread peace and love into the world.

The single was released on vinyl as a B-side with the main track being “I’m Leaving It Up To You” by Winston Reid & The Zion Boys. Since then, Locksley continued his role as Guitarist for The Cimarons over the years. Gichie has also lent his skills to various Artists including Los Aggrotones.

OLDIES SUNDAY: Ras Shorty I & The Love Circle – Watch Out My Children (1988)


On today’s Oldies Sunday, our selection was made in recognition of the month of May being “Child’s Month“. Heading over to Trinidad & Tobago, we pick a song from the late Garfield Blackman a.k.a. Lord Shorty a.k.a. Ras Shorty I a.k.a. “The Father of Soca” along with The Love Circle Band. Titled “Watch Out My Children“, this was released in 1988 as a part of a live album of the same name, and in 1997. It was later featured as a part of the album “Jamoo Victory“. In the song, Ras Shorty I warns the youth to be alert as to not get caught up in the wrongs of the world, the dangers of drug abuse and it bringing shame and disgrace. A unique part of the song was that some lines were translated into various languages including German and French. The song has been translated in a total of 10 languages. The song, given its message, was later featured as a part of a Drug Abuse Campaign conducted by the United Nations. It was also covered by Jamaican Band, Chalice.

Today’s Youth, Tomorrow’s Future: 8 Artists Who Started Out Young


In recognition of May being Child’s Month, 13th Street Promotions is dedicating this Oldies Sunday post to the youth. Many of us can look back at our own childhood when we’d imitate our favourite Artists and pretend we are established stars. What many may or may not know is that some of our favourites started out or even got discovered in their early stages. While we know that acts like the late US Pop Star Michael Jackson and Jamaican Singer Jimmy Tucker started out very young (Jimmy was Jamaica’s 1st Child Prodigy in the 1950s), we’d like to inform you or refresh your memory on some of our Caribbean acts who started out young.

1. Machel Montano (Debut Age: 9) – Too Young To Soca

2. Beenie Man (Debut Age: 8) – Too Fancy

NEW VIDEO: @MooreMayhem x @HelpJaChildren – Help JA Children…


Hey World! While today could’ve been a post about new music or new entertainers it instead sheds light on a very important topic, the abuse of children and how you can help. Child abuse has been rampant the world over and while many have been saved from further turmoil, many others continue to suffer from unfortunate acts being done to them. In Jamaica, many stories pour out through the media about children being abused and nothing much has been done to help bring justice for these victims. One new organization looking to help bring much needed awareness is Help Ja Children, which was started by a few young people who have seen much injustice and felt that their voices must be heard. Check out the video above to get an idea and check out below on how you can get in touch with the organization and help. Children are our future, help to protect them today…
