Jamaica, Dancehall, Annie, Spotlight Kunta, Pr, Press Release, Music, Blog, 13thStreetPromotions, 13thStreetPromo, Deejay, Dancehall,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.”

@MaticulusAuburn Has It “All For You” On New Single!


It’s been a while since Recording Artist Maticulus Auburn gave you some fire. Today, he delivers that on “All For You“. Produced by Roe Summerz, Maticulus dedicates his love for his lady as she has been there for him in every way, how she has changed his life for the better, and aims to be at her every beck and call. The song gives off a nice retro feel especially with Maticulus’ delivery, and Roe’s production matches it perfectly. I can picture a 90’s Reggae styled video for this (I have a couple concepts here). Look out for a new project from Mr. Auburn later this year. Check out the track below.

Will Clashing Still Be A Thing In 2017?


If you’re a fan of Dancehall Music, then you’re familiar with the art of Clashing. Seen as a way to bring out the best or worst lyrically in an Artist, we get to witness this event when tensions rise and the #1 spot in Dancehall is at a free for all stage. Over the years, the clashing season usually starts around late Summer/early Autumn where Artists call out each other in hopes of them sharing the stage and facing off at “The Greatest One Night Show On Earth” a.k.a. Sting, the yearly Dancehall event held on Boxing Day in Jamaica. Some of the greatest clashes included Ninja Man vs Shabba Ranks, Beenie Man vs Bounty Killa, and Vybz Kartel vs Mavado. While many never make it to Sting, they still manage to help put an upcoming or established Artist on the radar, or give an Artist their walking papers. In recent years, clashing has been on a decline. With the recent announcement of a no show for Sting 2016, the question I ask is, “Will Clashing Still Be A Thing In 2017?”.
