Wednesday, February 24th was popular female dancehall/reggae artiste Ce’Cile’s birthday, and she celebrated in fine style at the Fiction night club in Kingston with many friends including the Big Yard Crew, stylist Dexter Pottinger, photographer Marvin Bartley, BFF Shana, Spice, Tifa, Timberlee, Elektra, Milk, Craig (from Voicemail), amongst others.
In chart news, her ladies Anthem “Nah Stress Over Man” on Big Yard’s Street Bullies riddim moves up to # 3 on BBC’s 1xtra top ten charts, and on the song continues to make waves in other places including Jamaica and Cayman. Her song “Anything”, on Don Corleone’s Feminine riddim continues to enter various charts around the region and Jamaica.
Look out for more new music soon from Ce’Cile – songs produced by Big Yard, Don Corleon, Demarco, Nicky B and Christopher Birch. Additionally, Ce’Cile heads back on the road at the end of March, where she will play the Original Festival (flyer below) in France – alongside Mos Def and Warren G. She will also make other stops in France (details to be announced).
Rastafarian Reggae artist, Buju Banton, will have a March 4 hearing in Tampa, Florida, where he is being held on cocaine related charges.
Reports are that this will be a significant milestone in what his lawyers are labeling a case of “entrapment” against the Grammy nominated deejay.
Tracii McGregor, who represents Banton’s Gargamel Music is quoted as saying that there’ll be a hearing on all of the motions that were filed by Buju’s attorney “a lot of information should be revealed on March 4”.
Legal luminary in the case, David Oscar Markus, has reportedly filed several motions, all of which shouldbe heard on Thursday.
Buju Banton, whose real name is Mark Anthony Myrie, was arrested at his Tamarac home in South Florida in December last year, after Federal Agents accused him of negotiating with undercover agents to purchase five or more kilograms of cocaine at Sarasota in Tampa, Florida.
Banton’s legal team says their client is a victim of entrapment and intends to prove to that the US Government had used a paid informant to inveigle him for almost a year.
Markus also intends to get the prosecutors to reveal the name of the paid informant and how much he was paid to trap the artiste.

Lately however, Lewis has taken on a new cap working as a self-appointed anti-drug trafficking advocate.
'Kiki' also shares her very own experience in a tell-all documentary in which she highlights a gruelling tale of being locked up abroad on drug- trafficking charges.
The documentary, which is scheduled to be aired on TVJ tonight at 9:30, is part of her strategy to call attention to the consequences which may result from participating in the dangerous trade.
Produced by Advanced Media Productions (AMP) 'Our very own: Locked up abroad' goes in depth with drug trafficking in Jamaica and portrays Kiki as a misguided 18-year-old who made a regrettable mistake.
Thirty-year-old Lewis-Thombs spent the last 12 years reinventing herself, working beyond her mistake and striving to use her experience to dissuade other people from engaging in the trade.
In an impassioned appeal she states: "I have always wanted to tell my story. AMP has provided the perfect platform to get the point across about things that I have had to endure having been incarcerated. I know of others who have gone through the same thing and have not been able to bounce back, but I am here to let them know they can, and to dissuade others from engaging in drug trafficking because of the consequences involved."
In supporting Kiki's move to share her story, Joan Wright, Lewis' manager, said: "There is a point in everyone's life when they feel the need to truly be at peace with themselves and this is what Kiki's revelation will do for her."
Host for the documentary, Julius J. Levy, also reiterates the importance of having Kiki's story documented as an educational and awareness tool.
'There is a point in everyone's life when they feel the need to truly be at peace with themselves and this is what Kiki's revelation will do for her.'
Portmore Empire head Vybz Kartel has described his former protégé, Blak Ryno, as a confused individual after his recent departure from the crew.
Speaking yesterday, Kartel discussed his reaction to Ryno's abrupt departure from the Portmore Empire on Wednesday, of which he has been a member since January 2007.
Kartel said: "Ryno is, in my analysis, a confused individual going through some sort of post-adolescence trauma, where in his pursuit to find himself is getting his priorities mixed up and as a result, is making decisions in a subconscious, bewildered state of mind."
The deejay further said that: "Portmore Empire and Gaza will continue to grow from strength to strength merely because I am Gaza."
According to Kartel, persons can look out for his newest member Gaza Slim and his protégé Popcaan.
The Portmore Empire started in 2007 after Kartel's departure from the Alliance in 2006. The Empire have consisted of members such as Popcaan, Singa Blinga, Dosa Medicine, Lisa Hype, Shawn Storm, Gaza Indu, Sheba, Jah Vinci among others.
Blak Ryno was an original member of the Portmore Empire and was seemingly one of the closest to Kartel, often citing him as a major influence and called him 'daddy' on numerous occasions.
Ryno is the third deejay to have departed the Empire recently, the first being Lisa Hype, now called Lisa Hyper. Hyper was dismissed from the Empire late last year shortly after a compromising picture of the deejay began circulating on the Internet.
In January newcomer to the Empire, Gaza Kim - now known as Kym, willingly left the Empire after an incident which took place in the 'Big Yard' community off Mannings Hill Road. Kym was severely beaten on what sources say were orders by Kartel. Kartel later denied any involvement. Source star.

Ryno, whose real name is Romaine Anderson, on Thursday came out publicly with the announcement that he was leaving the Vybz Kartel lead Portmore Empire. Ryno had been a member of the Empire since 2007.
The deejay had contacted THE WEEKEND STAR to state that he was no longer in the crew.
Following yesterday's shooting incident, Kartel was quoted in a release from his publicist, Raine Martin, as saying that he was angered by the incident.
"I condemn today's (Thursday) shooting in Waterford, and I condemn any attack made on Blak Ryno," Kartel is quoted as saying. "Regardless of what transpires between the Portmore Empire and Blak Ryno, whether or not he is a part of the Empire, I will not tolerate any acts of violence against him. Anybody who does anything to Ryno has to answer to me."

Deejay Black-er is defending his friend, Macka Diamond, after Unicorn had disparaging things to say about the money goddess earlier this week.
As Macka Diamond and Unicorn plan to settle their disagreement at Follow Di Arrow tomorrow at James Bond Beach, Black-er has spoken out about comments made by Unicorn about Macka Diamond.
In Wednesday's STAR Unicorn called Macka 'ungrateful' saying: "So much people in the business try to help her and she turn roun' and backstab dem: Black-er, KipRich, some odda yute who used to write fi her ñ n Lady aw... o sh can com ah Follow Di Arrow com dad lik sparrow."
owr lackr, who collaboratd with Macka for th 2006 hit song Bun Him, told reporter that he and Macka are fine. He said: "Why him a try mash up me and Macka friendship? Him a damage it like she do me anything. Me and Macka were never bad. Macka is a good girl, she's been good to me. As far as I know Macka and KipRich never had any problems either."
According to Black-er, Unicorn is an artiste/writer that he rates and believes the deejay went about the situation wrong. Macka Diamond and Unicorn last year collaborated on the popular song Think 'Bout Mi. According to Unicorn, he was getting far less money for the song than he should have got from Macka.
Black-er said: "Him shoulda wait till the song buss, when it pass Portmore toll and possibly go ova the seas, but him mek the hype get inna him head. To me the song coulda been a big song but Unicorn did need to give it time to manifest."
Now Unicorn and Macka are set to face off at Follow Di Arrow, but Black-er believes that may not be the right decision for Unicorn. He said: "firs' ting, if a me like Unicorn no man nuh suppose to clash wid a woman, nutten like that has been done and mi nuh tink di Jamaican people a guh like dat. Him fi tek advise and low dat, mek people know you and build your fan base."
In the meantime, Black-er says he has been busy in studio and fans can expect new material from him by next month. By May, Black-er says, fans can expect a new collaboration with Macka titled Sticky Situation.

One of the stars of the popular VH1 reality show, For The Love of Ray J, yesterday announced on television that she and Jamaican Olympic star, Usain Bolt, are a couple.
The woman, Taneish Simpson, was a cast member of the dating show’s second season, but was eliminated on episode three. The show is centred around actor and singer Ray J’s search for love and features him living in a house with a group of women who vie for his attention and ultimately his heart. Ray J is the brother of singer Brandy.
Simpson, 24, was named Lava on the show and is originally from Portland, but now lives in Florida. Various Internet sources list her occupations as a model and make-up artist.
She said Bolt ‘googled’ her and made contact. She said, “We made it official on New Year’s. I actually spent New Year’s in Jamaica because he requested that I come down so we could spend New Year’s together.”
Lava’s exit from the reality show was controversial as she was eliminated because Ray J felt she was too demanding and controlling.
When contacted, a publicist for the sprinter and world-record holder said she would not talk about the runner’s private life.

This is the chorus from her latest single, which has been floating through the airwaves with amazing regularity.
Balancing her swagger on this catchy tune, appropriately entitled, Nah Stress, Ce'Cile looks to score with this energetic girls' anthem.
Produced by Big Yard on the Street Bullies rhythm, Nah Stress is a real walk-out song - "relationship done, you know a me lef" - one that the females can readily identify with and have been requesting both in the dancehall and on radio.
"It's a song of empowerment for the ladies," Ce'Cile says with her ever-confident smile. "The message is that there is too much to live for to allow a failed relationship to make a woman sit down and get depressed. Of course, a healthy relationship is important but if it's not working, then it's move up time," she said.
Ce'Cile, who recently took home the Excellence in Music and Entertainment award (EME) for Best Dressed Female, is known for her consistency, whether as her Bad Gyal alter ego, or as Ce'Cile.
She has swaggered off to a running start for 2010, and in addition to Nah Stress, she has been rocking the airwaves with the Don Corleone-produced single, Anything, on the Feminine rhythm

On weekends Adijah would practice on neighborhood sound systems Soul Signal and Electric Force. In 1993, Adijah, now in his late teens, recorded his first single Love Fat Woman for Alvin Reid's One Heart Label under the name Adi Banton, a name he chose in tribute to Buju Banton who was one of his role models. He recorded several more tracks for local producers until 1996 when he and two friends, Mr Lee and a singer called Escobar, decided to form a group. One night, after watching a movie about Pablo Escobar and his infamous cartel, Adijah came up with a name for his trio: Vibes Cartel. Unfortunately some time after, the group broke up due to internal frictions leaving Adijah again to continue alone. Adijah choose to keep the name of the group changing the C to K in Kartel and adopting the moniker VYBZ KARTEL.
In 1998, Kartel made an appearance at the Champions in Action stage show, held in his hometown of Portmore. His performance was praised, and he was soon offered a way into the music industry. Fellow artist Bounty Killer described him as having a lot of potential.
Vybz Kartel’s new role as Killer’s protégé attracted attention from the public, he then progressed to collaborations with Bounty Killer such as Gal Clown and Girls Like Mine (Liquid Riddim). He then released on his own early hits such as Gun Clown, Guns Like Mine (Trafalga Riddim), Badman (Panty Raid Riddim), Bus Mi Gun Like Nuttn, Most High (Mexican Riddim) and War Organizer (Clappas Riddim). He also had a string of collaborations with Wayne Marshall, such as New Millennium (Mad Antz Riddim), Why (Krazy Riddim) and Why Again (Good To Go Riddim). This debut led to Vybz Kartel being crowned Deejay Of The Year at Stone Love’s 30th Anniversary, 2002.
Kartel has already had several collaborations with international hip-hop and pop stars. In terms of singles sold, he has had the second-best year on the reggae charts for 2003 (outsold only by Elephant Man) and has released 2 albums for UK/US based label Greensleeves Records Ltd. He was also featured twice on the Def Jamaica project, and nominated for Source, VIBE and UK MOBO awards (although his MOBO nominations, along with those of Beenie Man, Elephant Man and Sizzla were
