Chevelle Franklyn to headline Ebenezer's 75th Anniversary Gospel Concert

chevellefranklyn.jpgInternational gospel singer Chevelle Franklyn, who made a successful transition from dancehall to gospel music in 1998, will headline the inaugural Ebenezer's 75th Anniversary Gospel Concert on Friday, March 14, 2008 at Lehman College, 250 Bedford Park Blvd in the Bronx. Other performers include Unconditional, the EPHN Temples of Praise Dancers and Choeur Magnificant.

Franklyn is no stranger to the limelight. She garnered major success in the early 90's with smash hits "Nice and Naughty" and "No Pushover" that were staples on reggae charts globally. This led to performances with some of the hottest reggae stars of the day and collaborations with Spragga Benz and dancehall icon Shabba Ranks. It was however her 1997 combination hit single Dancehall Queen with Beenie Man that had this singing sensation soared to musical heights. Over a hard driving drum and bass, disco-fueled rhythm, supplied by the creative genius of Sly and Robbie, Franklyn wailed a tribute to the queen.The song was featured on the "Dancehall Queen" soundtrack for Island Pictures and won her international acclaim. This eventually led to her signing to the Island Jamaica label.

Five sex questions with D'Angel - the thought of getting caught turns me on

What was it like having sex for the first the time?

There is no way I could forget that moment, I was really nervous, but curious at the same time.
How often do you have sexual intercourse?

It all depends on my mood and also if my partner is great in bed. So it can be as little as once a week or all day, (Everyday). But unfortunately I am not in a relationship at this time.
Does the size of a man d*ck matters to you?

It’s not about the size because there are some guys who are properly equipped with the right size but don’t know how to used it, so at the end of the day it’s not about the size of the gun but how effective the bullet hits the spot.

kevlarr.jpgWhat more is there to be said about a production company that takes pride in getting paid so much so that a simple merger of two words becomes their titled moniker.

Rihanna, Chris Brown 'unite' at Africa Unite in Jamaica

By Kon-Vick Writer


When Rihanna graced the stage at the Smile Jamaica-Africa Unite concert at James Bond Beach, St. Mary it was approximately 2:10 a.m. Sunday morning. Dressed in short colorful dress, laced with various beads, and golden frills attached around the edge, she was a remarkable sight - especially the dresses hugging breast cups.

However, it was not her attire or her sparkling performance that garnered the attention of the patrons. Rihanna was accompanied by R&B artiste Chris Brown, and the two immediately stole the spotlight at the Africa Unite Concert, which was staged in celebration of Bob Marley When the ‘good girl gone bad’ (Rihanna) entered the venue and was spotted by her adoring fans, it was like a pandemonium, which grew when they were made aware of the fact that Chris Brown was there with her. The backstage area, which was reserved for VIP guests, was flocked as soon as word of Chris Brown’s presence was made public.

Rumours have been circulating in recent weeks that the two are an item. These rumours were recently fuelled by their appearance in Barbados a few weeks ago, and one can now speculate that the sparks are going to be flying after their appearance together in Jamaica.

Look out for continued review of the concert.

The blazing hot radio disc jock is now back on air after he was slapped with a two-week suspension for accidentally playing a song that was not fit for airplay.

After reviewing the situation, Liquid was given a two-week suspension in early February 2008.

Spice 'Up Inna Di Spotlight' - European Tour

spice_deejay_dancehall.jpgThe bad gal of dancehall Spice having conquered the local scene will now be turning her attention on the European front where she will be on a one month tour with Cham and Pinchers.

With her biting lyrics and lethal performance Spice has really endeared herself to the dancehall massive.

Her quick wittiness and charming personality ensures she is a favourite with the massive.

But of course all this is not news to her many fans on the European side and certainly not to the man who discovered how sharp she could be on stage when he toured in 2002 with her in England. Baby Cham could not believe the DJ who was without a hit song at the time could mash up the show like a pro!

Now with some strong ammunition on her catalogue of songs including 'Up Inna Di Light' on the Gear Box rhythm which is rapidly climbing its way up on the Hype TV Top 20 Charts. The song is now sitting in the #8 position and seems to climb even higher.

The daughter of a bi racial mother of Japanese and African American descent and to a father of full African American descent, Shara got the best of both having a close relationship with both sides of her background. Being born and raised in the diverse San Francisco Bay Area helped Shara feel even more at home with her background due to the vast amount of bi racial peers with the similar Black and Asian descents.

Shara got her start in modeling at the age of 19 while attending Junior College in San Bruno (by way of San Francisco). She received formal model etiquette training at Barbizon Acting and Modeling School in San Francisco. What started off as a simple side hobby became a full on job. In the beginning, her modeling career started with simple promotional modeling at local clubs and events. Shara now has grown a name for herself and is considered one of the hardest working models of her area. Presently, Shara has a respectable amount of experience under her belt including modeling for runway, print ads, promotions, spokes modeling, and of course, video modeling. Shara made her music video debut on local Bay Area Artist Bailey’s video “U C IT” featuring J. Valentine which aired frequently on MTVJams and California radio stations.

Rihanna caught her Dad smoking crack


rihanna-dad_crack.jpgAccording to - Superstar Rihanna's dad told last night of his shame after she caught him smoking crack cocaine when she was just nine years old.

Ronald Fenty revealed how the singer - who hopes to win best international female artist at Wednesday's glitzy Brits awards do in London - watched him indulge his lethal habit as she peered through a gap in the kitchen door.

Ronald revealed: "I turned and looked Rihanna in the eye and instantly came back down from the high I was on. I saw her run for her mother, ask her something and then they both started to cry. I had no idea she had been watching.

"It was the lowest point - life just stopped and I realised what a fool I had been."

The moment tore apart Ronald and Rihanna's lives. He was thrown out of the family home in Barbados and stopped from seeing his daughter. But Ronald, 54, managed to kick the drugs and now plays a full part in her life - even joining the 19-year-old sensation on tour. He has also done his best to warn her off drugs - though he's sure she wouldn't touch them anyway.

Education is 'No Joke' school tour gets serious

dangel_hotgirl_photos_beenieman.jpgFACT: "Young people face many challenges as they pass through puberty and face explicit media messages on sex and with little or no parenting support. Based on the increase in the number of children having first sex at an earlier age, the increase in child and teenage pregnancy, as well as HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs), children and teenagers are in need of help". - Heather Little-White, Ph.D, Lifestyle Consultant.

The main aim of the "Education Is No Joke" school tour is to sensitize students as to the importance of a good education and motivate them to adopt positive lifestyles. The tour has been reuniting some of Jamaica's most popular artistes with their Alma Maters and this week surprised the students of three schools in different parts of the island. Browns Town High School was visited on Monday, February 11 by Busy Signal, on Tuesday, February 12th D'Angel visited her Alma Mater, St Catherine High and Jose Marti was visited on Wednesday February 13th by Macka Diamond.

The response to the tour has been overwhelming and the welcome from school administrators has been encouraging but even though the artiste did not perform at any of the schools, the students received them very well. The organizers of the "Education Is No Joke' school tour, VP Records and No Joke Entertainment thought it would be better for the students to talk to their favourite artistes on a personal level and felt that entertainment would overshadow the positive message. The artistes on the tour have been focusing on some of the more troublesome issues facing students and have been using their influence to motivate students to develop positive attitudes towards their academics.

Morgan Heritage - Music's most celebrated reggae group - 'Mission In Progress'

Morgan_Heritage_reggaejamaica.jpgNew York, NY February 12, 2008--Morgan Heritage, one of the most influential reggae bands today, have announced that they are set to release their highly anticipated 10th album MISSION IN PROGRESS on April 15, 2008.

Renowned worldwide for their riveting live shows, Morgan's Heritage's new release captures the band bottling the power of its stage performance on disc and infusing its songs with a heavier dose of hip-hop. Produced by Morgan Heritage (with a few songs helmed by Shane Brown and Stephen McGregor son of reggae singer Freddy McGregor), MISSION IN PROGRESS lyrically finds the group continuing their quest to bolster their love for reggae music through romantic, street-wise and conscious songs built on slabs of spirituality. Musically however, MISSION IN PROGRESS is the realization of Morgan Heritage’s “ROCKAZ” concept: reggae music with an edge.

"I think this record is the most aggressive one that we've ever done both musically and personally," says vocalist/keyboardist Una Morgan. "A lot of our inner feelings from growing up in the industry and the experiences that we've had touring the world, specifically in Africa, are reflected here and served as the inspiration for this album.”

Lutan Fyah - "I am innocent"

Lutan Fyah symbolises positivity and upliftment of the people and the music.

2007 was a good year for Lutan Fyah, Indeed I was able to spread my message world wide and bring reggae music to new peoples. I understand my obligation to my fans, Jamaica and the music and would never under any circumstance manifest such evil behavior.

I continue to give praises to my supporters for their continued faith in my music and I look forward to continuing the positive trend that I am known for.

Sean Paul's "Pick It Up & Drop It" rose one spot up to assume the # 3 Position. Mr. Temperature seems to be heating up and preparing for the top.

Five sex questions with Tunya Campbell Palmer - Formerly Miss Jamaica Petite

What’s the easiest way for you to come?

Easiest way for me to come is when I’m on top having sex while kissing him at the same time.
Which do you prefer, having sex on the beach or one late night at your guy’s work place on his office desk?

I rather have sex on the beach because that’s more romantic and comfortable.
Where is the weirdest place you ever had sexual intercourse?

That would be on the deck of a yatch in the middle of the ocean – the sun was scorching hot too, lol.

Janet Jackson - A Passion for Discipline

This exclusive was brought to you courtesy of and ThinkTank Marketing

janet-jackson-sexyphotos.jpgSitting across from a roaring fireplace one winter afternoon in Vail, Janet is curled up on a dark leather couch as she discusses the unlikely topic of Discipline, the title of her new album. Beyond the floor-to-ceiling window, long graceful branches of towering trees are heavy with snow. In the distance, a lift carries skiers up an imposing mountain awash in white. Janet’s wearing a midnight-black sweat suit, her hair pulled back to the nape of her neck. Her body language is relaxed and her eyes are smiling. She’s trim, and also a little hoarse, having just fought off a cold. The whisper-quiet texture of her voice adds to the intimacy of the conversation.

Discipline has been much on my mind,” she says. “It’s the idea that unifies the songs on this record. As a concept, and even a lifestyle, discipline goes extremely deep. It can be applied to so much about ourselves. In my case, I see it as one of defining aspects of my character. Discipline was there for me from the start. But it was not until this record that I began to understand its full meaning.

“In putting Discipline out front-- as both the title of the album and title of a song about sexual surrender--I wanted to announce that I was venturing into new creative waters. That meant working with producers like Jermaine Dupri, Rodney Jerkins, and Ne-Yo, whose songs spoke to the immediacy of my emotions. Like all my records, this one, whether intentional or not, has autobiographical roots. It’s difficult for me to work any other way. I don’t feel it, if I don’t believe it, I can’t sing it.

Viewers Prefer Rihanna Over Beyonce

Plus... Diddy Doesn't Care About White People


So it was brought to my attention that Entertainment Weekly did a poll to find out who most viewers were looking forward to seeing perform at this year's Grammy celebration.

After bulldozing her way into overexposure, Beyonce came in under Rihanna as most anticipated Grammy performance.... WTF?

To that I say... "Don't you ever for a second get to thinking, you're IRREPLACEABLE!"

Meanwhile, former music man, Diddy, is making noise on the catwalk this year for Fashion Week.

It's turns out that
