Jamelody was the big surprise to patrons who attended last night’s Reggae on the Avenue in Trinidad- which enjoyed a third week of popularity among reggae music lovers on the island. The vibe surrounding the event has been building each week and according to organisers, some 300 patrons attended last evening’s Mother’s Day edition of the nightclub feature.

JahmelodyJamelody’s music continues to infiltrate the Caribbean music market. In Jamaica, his sound has been compared to great reggae crooners like Beres Hammond, Garnet Silk and top billing act, Jah Cure. At home in Trinidad, his latest release, ‘I Love You’ has remained atop the music playlist on the urban frequencies, proving that the 33-year-old Carenage native has just what it takes to stand firmly beside some of Jamaica’s best acts. Last night, patrons at Coco Lounge along Ariapita Avenue smiled warmly and ingested the T&T reggae singer’s every word. Singing in what could only be described as his melodically scintillating voice, Jamelody delivered some six tracks, all of which would prove to be just what the crowd yearned to hear.

The artiste has already been chosen as the top choice among the list of local reggae artistes by the promoter of a separate event dubbed, The Good Reggae Music Series which kicks off on May 30th. That event’s coordinator, radio personality, Third Bass, told ETCETERABUZZ.COM that he feels Jamelody has the most international potential, added to a good catalogue of music. “I still feel he has a way to go but people really love him and his music is very uplifting and that is exactly what we’re trying to bring back – that good energy and good vibes that’s missing today. We want people leaving an event feeling good,” he said.

The Good Reggae Music Series will touch down in various communities across Trinidad and Tobago over the next three months and stems from Bass’ radio show segment, Good Reggae Music, created with his DJ, The Ultimate DJ Shane on urban frequency, Boomchampions 94.1FM.

The rush by media outlets to be “first” is proving to be a problem. Even as investigators scrambled to the scene of the helicopter crash that claimed the lives of nine persons in Los Angeles on Sunday, US media outlet, TMZ had been informing the world that basketball star, and father of four, Kobe Bryant had been killed. The rush to be first is now being criticised, with several people in authority lamenting the fact that family members may not have been given the news just one hour after the incident had taken place. TMZ had however broken the story, sending the world into a state of shock.

TMZ’s Harvey Levin

The media outlet was criticised by Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who told reporters, “It would be extremely disrespectful to understand that your loved one … perished and you learn about it from TMZ.” He said TMZ had posted the story a little more than one hour after police said they received reports of a downed aircraft.

Los Angeles County Undersheriff Tim Murakami also criticised TMZ in a tweet. “I am saddened that I was gathering facts as a media outlet reported … Kobe had passed,” Murakami wrote. “I understand getting the scoop but please allow us time to make personal notifications to their loved ones. It’s very cold to hear of the loss via media. Breaks my heart.”

Kobe Bryant leaves to mourn, his wife Vanessa Bryant and three other daughters.

What are your thoughts? Do you think it was insensitive for TMZ to run with the report before ensuring family members had been notified or do you think it goes with the territory?

Was TMZ Wrong for Running the Story on Kobe's death before confirming the family Had been notified?
