  1. Re the Kaci “embarrassment” if you wrote the article…. how ironic that a website devoted to music and the Rastafarian culture feels that the main ambassador of that genre is not important enough to be mentioned as a great contributor from Jamaica to the world…..ooh…. and on your important political points never forget ever…. that Jamaica was one of the first if not the first countryt o bawl out against apartheid…. in the struggle against racism. We’re all welcome to our opinions of course.

  2. hello im siervo outta spain i have a videoclip recorded in jamaica tivoli gardens..i want ask you if you can publish it in the web..the name of the tune its state of emergency

  3. Pleasssssse stop attacking Jamaican women. The issues of bleaching and who many celebrities choose to have on their arm have the same root, self hatred. Hundreds of years of European colonization and domination ultimately has irreversible damage on the enslaved. So, next time we attack…let’s attack the people who enforced these beliefs on the African slaves.

  4. How do persons get in touch with the admin? This article uses Kabakas image in a slandering way and needs to be removed. He is also not mentioned anywhere in the article.

    Kabaka has no history of treating Africa or African promotors badly.

  5. I concur with the previous post stating that this site is TERRIBLE!! Very biased and peremptory articles written in poor English. Your site is no way the leader in Reggae news!!! Who do you think you are?? First and last time I read your miserable, predujiced articles!
