Ras Kimono’s Unfinished Business

Published

on

Reggae

In the beginning of his career, Ras Kimono was a member of a group named ‘The Jastix’.

In the group were other talents including Majek Fashek and Amos McRoy Jegg. As a group, the trio performed but parted ways to become solo artistes.

As solo artistes, Majek Fashek and Ras Kimono found their footing releasing some of the greatest songs the 80’s and 90’s witnessed. Songs such as ‘Rum-Bar Stylée’ and ‘Natty Get Jail’ from his “Under Pressure’ debut album were an instant hit for Ras Kimono, while ‘Send Down The Rain’, ‘Holy Spirit’, ‘Redemption Song’ and ‘So Long’ all from Majek Fashek’s ‘Spirit of Love’ and ‘Prisoner of Conscience’ album made waves.

While one was more of an advocate for a better Nigeria, the other was more spiritual, that was Majek Fashek.

Something which the music industry wasn’t served till his death was a collaboration between the duo.

A collaboration between Majek Fashek and Ras Kimono in their prime would have been something hot, but alas it never came. Had it been done, it would have thrilled the music industry like nothing has.

Maybe it was in the works; perhaps this was what Majek Fashek was talking about when he said that he urged Ras Kimono to see his manager in America. But it never came, it just never did. Adieu, rub-a-dub master.

Music Pundits Blame Livespot For Ghana Meet-And-Greet Mix-up

Cardi B

Music pundits in Nigeria have blamed Livespot organisers of the Livespot X Festival for the meet-and-greet controversy that happened in Ghana.

The general conclusion by music pundits in Nigeria is that Livespot didn’t bring their A-game to Ghana, having sealed the Nigerian version of the concert.

Recall that Ghanaian celebrities had expressed their disappointment after Cardi B failed to show up at a pre-event meet-and-greet session.

Absolving herself of any blame in the mix-up, Cardi B said that she was not aware of the meet-and-greet, adding that it was not in her contract.

“A meet-and-greet wasn’t in my contract; I didn’t know I had a meet-and-greet in Ghana. I had one in Nigeria and I was on top of that. I didn’t know I had one today, when I woke up, I went downstairs to soak up some sun in the pool, and my stomach started hurting. That was about 3 pm. I woke up and I saw a rave going on on social media that I had to go for a meet-and-greet. I guess a lot of artistes were angry because they were invited and I wasn’t there. I apologise, but it wasn’t my fault, it wasn’t me that did that,” Cardi B said about the incident in Ghana.

Musician, Duncan Mighty, has regained his freedom after being arrested in Imo State over an allegation of fraud.

The Imo state police released the singer on bail.

Recall that Duncan Mighty was originally arrested owing to a petition alledging his involvement in an N11 million fraud.

The petition written by an up-and-coming rap artiste M2 who claimed that the Imo State Government led by former governor, Rochas Okorocha, through the office of the special adviser on entertainment, entered into a deal with Duncan Mighty to manage, promote and arrange collaboration with other top artistes and sign M2 under Young Wealth record label owned by Duncan Mighty.
