With news of her boss given a prison sentence, and her upcoming trial, Vawnessa Bling stepped in a new direction and asked for “Mercy” on Onstage tonight. Here she spoke on how Vybz Kartel’s sentence affected her, being raised in the church and continuing to be a part of it, her new single “Mercy On Me Lord” and the feedback she has been getting for it, separating “Gaza Slim” from “Vawnessa Bling“, and handling all her music business on her own. Blign also premiered the music video for “Mercy On Me Lord“. With her trial coming in August, I do hope things will work out and we can hear more of “Vawnessa Bling“.

On last night’s episode of Irie FM’s “The Buzz“, Dancehall artists Vawnessa Bling (Gaza Slim), Seanizzle and Tellah were the featured guests. Hosted by Kshema Francis, first up was Tellah as she spoke about herself and her experiences growing up, her time on the first staging of Magnum Kings & Queens of Dancehall in 2008, her songs “A Mother’s Cry” and “I’m Not My Scars“, releasing her EP at the end of the month and further plans for her career. Seanizzle was next on the show and here he spoke about staying busy, starting his career as a producer first before now balancing his roles as a producer and artist, his single “Wha Dem A Watch Me“, staying grounded, encouraging artist and producers to make good music, hosting a competition for upcoming producers, his hit riddims and more. Next up was Vawnessa Bling and here she spoke about her new single “Mercy On Me” and feedback from it, why going in the direction of Gospel Music, using the “Vawnessa Bling” name in future songs, her new label Vawnessa Bling (VB) Records, her upcoming court case, and future plans. This is a quite a watch so if you need to you can skip a few parts. Check out the videos below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
Stepping in another direction today is singer Vawnessa Bling a.k.a. Gaza Slim. Titled “Mercy On Me Lord” and produced by her own VB Records, Vawnessa steps into the Gospel route with this song. She asks the Lord to keep her safe from all transgressions, having faith even when she feels like giving up, going through things and asking for guidance. This is not a bad effort from her as I’ve been following her career for a while and I believe she could flex her creative muscle. I’m actually looking forward to what else Vawnessa has in store.
