Dropping a lil Reggaeton for you all today courtesy of Ozuna! Recently, the star from Puerto Rico teamed up with Recording Artists Zion Y Lennox for the tune, “Egoista” (“Selfish” in English), today we give you the visual! Directed by Nuno Gomes, we get somewhat a Music Video in a Music Video as the Artists are on a set complete with Video Production equipment, props, and of course some eye candy. Throughout the video, Ozuna sings about being a selfish lover and is trying to redeem himself with the help of his supporting cast. A very clean visual here, but it somewhat helps with the theme of the song. Ozuna has been enjoying success in the Latin America market, and his debut Album “Odisea” has been doing pretty well. Recently he was seen in the studio with Recording Artist Cardi B, and Jamaican Producer Rvssian, who know what they’ll be cooking up. Discover something new, check out the video below.

Lauren Le Franc, a Jamaican Entrepreneur residing in
the United Kingdom, has won a Graduate Award from City University of London to expand her already established Coffee Business, J.A. Island Roasters. As part of her award package, Le Franc also secured a location for her business at the University’s Cass Business School, and is looking at commencing operations in the upcoming weeks.
Le Franc, a qualified Barrister of England and Wales who first set up the company in Jamaica in 2011 while completing her legal education, has been focused on selling roasted Coffee through J.A. Island Roasters under the brand, True Blue 100% Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee. With this award she is looking forward to importing organic and non-organic Jamaican green beans to the U.K. from the world-famous Blue Mountains.
She said the award package also covers operational costs, and comes with mentorship and support from the University. “I’m elated to have such an amazing opportunity to expand my business and to take brand Jamaica a step further into the spotlight,” shared Le Franc. “I already have a Distributor who has been contracted to take all my organic Coffee, I look forward to continuing the work with the Coffee Industry Board on this venture and I am heading into business with an optimistic mindset and a winning attitude.”
In 2014, J.A. Island Roasters received approval from the Certification of Environmental Standards (CERES) – an International organization which offers certification for organic farming and food processing, to maintain good practices in the Food Industry. Then, she received approval from the Coffee Industry Board to export organic certified Jamaican Blue Mountain green bean Coffee. Although she found favour for her roasted Coffee in the Asian market, she was in search of additional opportunities for development when she came across the City University of London’s Entrepreneur Graduate Scheme Competition in 2016, and her big break came when she decided to participate.
