Mr Lex eyes the runway - Embattled artiste shoots new video and begins getting modelling gigs
Rising like the proverbial phoenix, reggae-dancehall entertainer Mr Lexx is getting his life back on track both in music and in other forms of entertainment one would not readily associate him with.
Mr Lexx reveals that he walked as a model at Caribbean Fashion Rock in Manhattan last month wearing pieces from a clothing line called RepJamaica.
During the event, Kingsley Cooper from Pulse received a Legend award for his contribution to the development of Caribbean fashion. He revealed he was down to be at another fashion event that he described as Brooklyn's biggest fashion expo, last night (Sunday) in Manhattan.
He says RepJamaica and Yard Rock are among several clothing lines that have expressed an interest in him wearing their clothing.
"I have more designers wanting me to wear their clothes than producers who want me to voice for them," he said, clearly pleased at the positive turn his life and career have taken.
The entertainer tells he began shooting the video for his latest song My Private Dancer in New York yesterday. The shoot was to take place at the Retro Lounge on Brooklyn Avenue in Freeport New York. The entertainer who hails from eastern Kingston but currently resides in the Big Apple, says My Private Dancer is a song that is about getting lap dances at the club and at home. The song was produced by Kevin Lloyd Music/Kheilstone and is being distributed by radio Ready Entertainment. The video is also being produced by Kevin Lloyd Music.
