Soca Monarch shocker

Bunji Garlin and Fay Ann Lyons-Alvarez have both bowed out of the International Groovy and Power Soca Monarch competitions, respectively.

The couple announced this last night, saying they decided to withdraw because they believe that fundamental clauses in the competitors’ contracts were objectionable and demanded too much of the winners.

They were therefore advised by their management and legal representatives that it was best they pull out of the competition before the semi-final round on Sunday at the Arima Velodrome. Bunji had pulled position number 15 and Lyons-Alvarez number 20.

RDX ACCUSED OF STEALING SONG

rdx

Kingston, Jamaica (Shuzzr & Mpr Consulting) – In light of recent accusations made by a recording artiste and its label which led to an article being published in the Jamaica Star on Monday, January 15th, 2013. I Shuzzr, publicist for the duo RDX felt if necessary to comment on the issue formally on behalf of the duo.

Since the release of the single “Kotch’ produced by Cashflow Records which has received over 7500 views on Youtube, neither the recording artiste and its label by extension have expressed their concerns through the various formal channels at their disposal. Whilst the concept may seem to bare some far-fetched similarities, its development and conception had nothing to bare on materials sent or produced by any other artiste or label. RDX versatility speaks volume, as we’ve seen the constant successes and accomplishment being attained.
The duo is well known for their creativity within the industry, as they have produced successful rhythms (riddims) and written materials (lyrics) for other artiste. With hit singles such as ‘JUMP’, ‘BROAD OUT’ BEND OVA’ amongst many other, the duo have represented for Jamaica on several fronts, touring Europe and other parts of the world constantly, staying on top of the charts, recording, producing and keeping fans entertained and enemies confused.
RDX and its team have been busy enjoying the benefits of their successes, whilst planning and strategizing as to how we can achieve even more. We’ve held ourselves to high standards in this music industry and even encouraged our peers, those who aspire to become artiste themselves or otherwise – the single ‘Shining Star’ speaks volume to that.
We find the accusations baseless and would like to make it clear that we will not fuel these underhanded cheap tactics by an unknown artiste and/or label to gain some form popularity.

PICK 4 CELEBRATES ONE YEAR IN JAMAICA

Kingston, Jamaica: Thursday, January 17, 2012: This week marks the first anniversary of the popular Pick 4 game. Last year Jamaican players won a total of J$1,509,187,750, (over $1.5 billion) with an average of $127,765,645 (over $127 million) being paid out to winners each month.

“I play Pick 4 all four times for the day,” noted Pick 4 player, maintenance man

C. ‘Mackie’ McCarthy, “I play before the 10.30 a.m., 1 p.m., 5 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. draws! You never know what number will play, and them play some serious numbers, so sometimes I use my children birthday or license plate numbers that I see about the place.”

With as little as $10 you can play and win with Pick 4. Players have five options for selecting their four numbers.  They can bet using the straight option with a payout of $54,000 for every $10 they bet if they match the numbers in order. Or they can choose from four mixed bet options with a variety of ways to match and win (4-way, 6-way, 12-way or 24-way).

While the minimum wager is J$10, players can also bet with $20, $30, $40, $50, $100, $200 and $500. A $500 bid can win over two million dollars.

“It’s a new year and we could all use a little extra cash for those New Year resolutions,” said Sonia Davidson, Vice President of Group Corporate Communications at Supreme Ventures. “By playing Pick 4, thousands of Jamaicans could get that extra boost and win cash to help out with settling debts and meeting payment for expenses. Try your hand at Pick 4 today!”

Information is available at Supreme Ventures outlets for those who may want to try this exciting game.
