The Nigerian artist who recently collaborated with Jamaican, Karamanti has just dropped his newest single entitled OROBO. MJ Magazine was informed that the term OROBO means fat. Apparently in the record Teddy Ziggy is simply stating his love for the more fluffy females.
The song is produced by Major P who is also behind the Karamanti collaboration. And it sounds like something that would be on repeat in any night club.

Beneath the brisk air and pulse of New York City, Caribbean entertainment gurus Irish and Chin welcomed a packed house of Reggae music fans to celebrate Etana’s iconic new album “I Rise” (VP Records). Adding to the impressive album launch was top Reggae crooner Duane Stephenson, who impeccably delivered classic tunes and prime selections from his acclaimed “Dangerously Roots” album also on the VP Records imprint. As Real Reggae music took center stage, a Roots infused musical experience overcame the historic venue.
The soulful Reggae songstress Etana commenced her memorable performance with “Haile Selassie is the Chapel.” Her flawless vocals filled the famed SOB’s and set the standard for the rest of her impressive set. Fans were enthralled with Etana’s rich vocals on songs including “How Long,” “On My Way,” “Passing Thru” and “Ward 21,” among other album gems. The energy and excitement of the crowd peaked as the chanteuse belted out popular singles from the album, including “Richest Girl,” “I Rise” and “Jamaican Women.”
‘It was so nice to see old and brand new fans…I was truly overwhelmed with joy!” says Etana about the successful New York City album launch. “I especially filled with pride as I walked in the venue and later on in the night, experienced fans singing many of my songs from “I Rise” and old favorites from previous albums verbatim.”
“I have to say that the vibes were great..fans were listening, rocking, singing, dancing and even pulling up selections (reewinding dancehall style…lol). I can’t help but thank all of my fans for the support,” the soulful singer adds. “I appreciate the event’s promoters Irish and Chin for believing in me from then til’ now and their incessant efforts. Of course, I salute VP Records, as the album wouldn’t have been possible without their vision.”
One couldn’t help but groove to the radically smooth sounds of Duane Stephenson, who served as the ideal co-star for this concert. There were lots of “Cool Runnings,” as Duane crooned songs from his magical “Dangerously Roots” album. The singer also amazed the crowd with favorites like “August Town” and the outstanding cover of “Little Cottage in Negril.”
Notably, the album launch was chock full of industry and media professionals. Even fellow artists Lady Saw, U.K. sensation Randy Valentine and Shuga dropped in for the celebtation. Irish and Chin couldn’t help but be pleased by the successful event, as they pride themselves with being at the forefront of promoting and publicizing Reggae music.
“The Irish and Chin brand is extremely diverse, specializing in all facets of Caribbean entertainment, including marketing, promotions, event production, management and last but not least, media,” says Garfield “Chin” Bourne, Irish and Chin Co-founder. “Currently, our media arm, which includes the syndicated Sound Chat Radio program, is thriving, affording artists with an ideal vehicle of exposure for their efforts.”
Chin concludes, “I believed in Etana’s project from the first day I heard the album. Reggae needs the inclusion of strong female acts to enable a balanced industry. Etana’s hard work and success will not only benefit her, but also aid other female acts, as they rise to greatness!
