A few days ago veteran reggae artist Lutan Fyah shared the official video for his latest single, Bad Girl, Good To Me. All his fans and supporters are loving the song and sees it as another potential hit for the Jamaican sing-jay. However, there are a few people who are expressing concern at some of the images displayed in the official video.
Because of the song’s lyrical content – which is all about him (Lutan Fyah) being with a bad girl – the director created visuals that showed women in a demeaning manner. This is according to persons in the Rasta community. If you have not yet seen the clip, click here or on the image above to check it out so that you can form your own opinion.
A lot has changed in the music industry as a result of the corona virus pandemic. Most performers are unable to accept bookings because of the very real possibility of cancellation and the uncertainty surrounding turnout.
While some artists have decided to sit out the pandemic, others have simply adopted to the new norm by amending their overall strategy. One such artist is dancehall deejay Capleton. Though he is not doing nearly as much shows as he was before covid-19, King Shango remains very active in the business by consistently sharing new content.
His latest is an inspirational record titled Rise & Shine (done for Sponge Music). It was published on January 21st along with its official video. Click here or on the image above to check it out and remember to like, comment and share.
Dancehall artist Karamanti and the team at Blakkwuman22 Music have just uploaded the official video for Start With A Prayer. The song is the lead single on Karamanti‘s just released Spiritual Warfare album, published in December.
