@OfficialWayneJ Becomes Ambassador For Alligator Head Foundation, Promotes New Single.


Teenage Recording Artist Wayne J was recently recruited by Portland based Alligator Head Foundation to be their Youth Ambassador to raise environmental awareness, increase Ocean conservation, and promote the decrease in the usage of single use plastic products. Wayne’s involvement kicked off with the release of the single and music video for “Plastic Bottles”. Produced by Diztroy and AppleJuiceKid, Wayne J spreads the message of conservation as the Foundation aims to develop a Fish Sanctuary and rehabilitate the local communities that make fishing their source of income and sustenance.

Portland Champions @IyaraANG For @ReggaeSumfest!


To the people of Portland, Eric Somers, better known as Iyara is more than a Recording Artiste, to them he is a shining symbol that demands respect. Following the release of the much anticipated list of performers for Reggae Sumfest 2016, people are astounded as to why this talented powerhouse did not make the cut. Many Portlanders have sought to understand this plight and have since started a petition to get Iyara to perform at the Music event. So far the petition has over 1,500 signatures pleading with the organizers of the show to give the Artiste a slot to perform. “I have known this young man for many years. He has never given up on his Parish; he has always helped in some way to raise capital for Portland and to put us on the map. If Iyara performs at Sumfest it will be a great day in Portland.” Said one Portlander.

When quizzed about this development, Iyara said he is not surprised that his community has made this move because they have supported him immensely over the years and he has supported them in return. “When you have the support of your community, it is a feeling of greatness and pride. I feel humbled and I know whatever the outcome I will be happy.” Said Iyara. The “Pressure Cooker” Artiste is also looking forward to his performance at Portland Paradise Weekend which will place from November 11-13, 2016. Iyara will also be giving a portion of his performance fee to the Titchfield High School for the development of an English and Language Lab.

1. Soca Synergy: Trinidad Carnival Starter Pack Vol. 2 – DJ Captain John

I literally have been listening to this mix EVERY DAY for the past few weeks since I downloaded it. I have officially dubbed it my “Jamaica Carnival Starter Pack” mix. When I went to Mas Camp last Friday, I knew EVERY 2016 Soca song out of Trinidad (except the recent releases) thanks to DJ Captain John and this mix.
