He’s been doing what he feels he has to, all in a bid to progressively take his sound to another level. He’s accomplished some of his goals and isn’t stopping. On Tuesday, Ken Marlon Charles’ ‘Forever’ was added to the BBC1Xtra’s playlist in London- something not many Caribbean entertainers have experienced. Ken, since his outburst a couple years ago, indicating that he would be moving out of the Soca arena and embracing the UK music scene, has faced harsh criticism locally.

ETCETERABUZZ continues to keep our eyes and ears peeled to KMC’s progress however. In a recent Facebook post, the artiste highlighted that he would not be returning to soca as requested by many people at home. His clarification underscored the his feeling of disenchantment he felt during his 15 years of doing Soca music. He said he felt unappreciated and disrespected then, and now he has created a better life at peace for himself. Check out his April 20th message.

[box color=”gray” icon=”information”]“I really dont understand trini people all the time for 15years i give them soca although they wasn’t giving me my respect for my contribution, they fight me fight me they didnt want me to eat no food and u can still see it by their non support of my international venture , they call up my name all over like if i thief or kill somebody when all i do is give my people music and i work very hard but in vain , i moved from that enviroment to create a better life at peace for myself and now am actually feeling like am going somewhere all of a sudden they keep telling me bout doing soca ,are these people really serious? come on forward ever backward never”~ KEN MARLON CHARLES[/box]

US based, internationally acclaimed reggae artist, Shaggy has called on the US Embassy in Jamaica, the US Ambassador to the country and the country’s Prime Minister, Andrew Holness, to do what is necessary to aid in ensuring that both Bounty Killa and Beenie Man are able to acquire US Visas. His call comes on the heels of their VERZUZ virtual clash on Saturday where close to 500,000 persons logged on to view the veterans battle musically.

Beenie Man and Bounty Killa both had their US VISAS revoked in 2010. At that time, Mavado and Aidonia were also among the dancehall artistes who’s US Visas were taken away by the US Embassy. In 2011, Mavado was once again able to travel to the US and then, five years later, Aidonia was allowed re-entry. To date, both Beenie Man and Bounty Killa remain without US travel access.

In his social media post, both meant to celebrate Jamaica’s cultural performance by these two veteran artistes, and dispute the state of their travel affairs, Grammy award winner, Shaggy said, “Fans world wide were greeted with a cultural experience of epic proportions as best as it could be delivered in these covid times.
