We Honour The Great NinjaMan In Our Latest Playlist!


Today we salute one of Dancehall’s greatest Deejays. Some know him as Desmond Ballentine and Brother Desmond, but most know him as the “Original Front Teet, Gold Teet, Gun Pon Teet Don GorgonNinjaMan! The Deejay that is full of lyrics, and is not the one to step to in a clash! Today he celebrates his 55th birthday (others say he was born on January 20 🤷🏽‍♂️), and though he’s currently incarcerated, he still has an influence on many artists, and still holds the role as a music Icon. Today we honour his greatness with our latest Playlist titled, “Ninja Mi Ninja“!

With 45 tracks (on the Spotify version) loaded, get to know the Original Don as he has given the world great music over the years. Though many miss him in the streets, we can always look back at the times he has made us laugh, kept us entertained, and showed why he’s a Dancehall giant. What are your favourite NinjaMan tracks? Let us know.

OLDIES SUNDAY: Sister Charmaine – No Disrespect (1990)


Today’s Oldies Sunday selection is dedicated to Dancehall Artist Sister Charmaine who passed away on January 5, 2021. Before the many prominent Queens of Dancehall, Sister Charmaine was one who held that title proudly. Today we go back in time to check out “No Disrespect“.

Released through Leggo Records in 1990, Sister Charmaine did plenty name dropping on this one as she shares the difficulty in catching a break in music. In a rather humorous way, she calls upon artists like Papa San, Admiral Bailey, General Trees, Little Lenny, Professor Nuts, Lt. Stitchie, Flourgon, Ninja Man, and many more for assistance in making her career as successful as theirs. From borrowing a Benz, to performing Obeah, to learning certain songs and moves, Sister Charmaine believes these were some of the methods her fellow artists used in getting a “buss“. The song was not made to disrespect the many artists mentioned, but to give her audience something to laugh about, and showcase her versatility. The song was featured on the “Live And Kickin’” compilation in 1990. A song we believed took a cue from “No Disrespect” was Ce’cile’s 2000 single, “Changez” where she called out male deejays, but for a rather different topic.

Walk Good Sister Charmaine!
