  • Meeting tomorrow to decide if Miss Kitty or 'Curvy Diva' will be punished



    There will be a high-level meeting on Tuesday of executive producer, Mark Kenny, sponsors and other principals behind the Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall show to determine what action, if any, will be taken against Miss Kitty or Yanique Barrett.

    The two media personalities on the show were involved a verbal war of words during a live broadcast last weekend. 

    "It was not something that was planned by our team. People will go off script, and that could be seen as unprofessional. As far as I'm concerned, these things happen in live television sometimes that are unprecedented, and the appropriate actions will be taken," Mark Kenny told The Star over the weekend.

    The verbal fisticuffs on air temporarily halted the show and the stage manager, media personality Sanjay, was forced to come onstage to instruct Yanique Barrett to continue the show, and discontinue the conversation with Miss Kitty. 

    In the meantime, popular blogger Dr Love posted a blog where he advocated that Miss Kitty ought to be fired because she was "outta line".

    "You want the attention, you want to start an argument, You want the attention, is not the first yu do something like this. Magnum should fire her immediately," he said. 

    The incident has dominated social media since Saturday with fans weighing in to support or upbraid the parties involved.

  • Jamaican Reggae Artist Jimmy Riley dead after losing his battle with cancer

    The reggae community was plunged into mourning when news circulated that reggae singer Jimmy Riley had passed away last night after a long battle with cancer. He was 61.

    “He was in New York at the time,he had been getting treatment for the cancer. The family is devastated,” a source close to the family told

    Tarrus Rliey posted an image with the expletive, “F… Cancer” in response to his father’s death.


    Jimmy Riley was born Martin James Ziggy Norman Riley, 22 May 1954. He is best known as a solo act but had carved out a great reputation as a member of the Sensations and The Uniques.

    He had several hits in the 1970s, including Tell The Youths The TruthNyah Bingi, and Clean up the Streets, and continued to be successful in the 1980s, working with Sly & Robbie’s Taxi productions. In 1983, Riley topped the UK reggae chart with his version of Marvin Gaye’sSexual Healing. In the late 1980s, Riley moved to Miami, and put his career on hold, but returned to Jamaica in the early 1990s.

    Riley’s son Tarrus followed him into music and the success of Tarrus gave a boost to Jimmy’s career. They have performed together several times, headlining a number of festivals including the Ocho Rios Seafood Festival in 2007.

    In September 2013, he released the album Contradiction, that featured guest appearances from his son Tarrus, Sizzla, and Fantan Mojah.


    Martin James Ziggy Norman Riley also known as Jimmy Riley was born in Jonestown, Kingston, Jamaica on 22 May 1954, Riley grew up in the city’s Waterhouse district and attended Kingston Senior School along with Slim Smith. When Smith had success in The Techniques, Riley hung around with the group hoping to join, but was limited to carrying things for them and helping out with harmonies. He decided to form his own group, The Sensations, along with Cornell Campbell, Buster Riley (brother of The Techniques’ Winston Riley), and Aaron “Dego” Davis. The Sensations had a successful audition for producer Arthur “Duke” Reid, and the group had mid-1960s success with “Everyday is Just a Holiday” and “Those Guys”. On leaving the group in 1967, Riley joined Smith and Lloyd Charmers in the re-formed Uniques, having huge success with songs such as “Watch This Sound” and “My Conversation”. When the Uniques split up, Riley initially recorded as a solo artist for Bunny Lee before moving away to record independently. He began producing his own recordings and others by artists such as Slim Smith and Delroy Wilson. He had several hits in the 1970s, including “Tell The Youths The Truth”, “Nyah Bingi”, and “Clean up the Streets”, and continued to be successful in the 1980s, working with Sly & Robbie’s Taxi productions. In 1983, Riley topped the UK reggae chart with his version of Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing”. In the late 1980s, Riley moved to Miami, and put his career on hold, but returned to Jamaica in the early 1990s.

  • Superheroes and Priests take over dancehall?

    Social media is in shambles as party goers have given a new name to dancehall.

    The Justice League and Temple are two of the titles that have been put forward by social media users in recent times as young adults can now be seen decked out in capes, overalls and gowns mimicking superheroes and priests.

    And though the vibrant Jamaicans are known to be a trendy people, this one has been rubbing the majority the wrong way.

    “And they strike again! Boy me just can't bodda really! These super heroes need some people to rescue to occupy their time. Dem too free!! Superman and Batman always have sumtn fi do. So me can't undastan! Kmt cho #‎DoYourWork,” commented one annoyed Facebook user.

    Another posted: “A Moment of silence... Break the chain of generational curse Lord!! Even now I beg and ask of you! AMEN.”

    And then there are those who are urging the creation of a dislike option.

    “Just done chat wid Zuckerberg cause him need fi work little faster on the "DisLike button" and “Everytime I activate back my Facebook I can never last 5 days good because of the picture them weh me keep on a see on here. Me TEMPTED FICOMMENT AND SAY ‘Come Man Delete This Yuh Nuh Look Good" BUT U C because me cyah fight, me affi deh yah and humble. But mark my words when me seh the ‘Dislike Button’ a come yer.”

    It is unsure where the new look came from but people are ready and willing to send it right back.
