Jahmiel wrote his upcoming single and video “United” after a conversation with Balla G of Rokus Records. “The whole united song idea came up after having a convo with Balla G on black history month talking about black history. I’m the type of artiste that sings about what i see around me, both negative and positive, but then give whatever I’m singing about a positive solution. We were speaking about the lack of unity between our black people. That we need to be reading and knowing where we coming from, then we’ll see the light. I see more fussing and fighting than loving and caring. The fact is uniting strengthens everything we’re doing so lets use that energy in the right way” states Jahmiel
Filmed in Pinicle Hill, Spanish Town and Trelawny Jamaica, the song was produced by Rokus Records, video directed by Ricardo Williams and co-directed by kahlila Anderson.
Gaza Nana borned Jamarlie Guthrie and Stamma Gramma borned Michael Williams, two artists when combined has the internet presence equivalent of Tommy lee Sparta has come to agreement to form an extension of the poplar group “Gaza” which was brought to fame by the incarcerated debatably king of the Dancehall Vybz Kartel. Gaza Nana, aged 21 raised in Portmore hails from Irish Pen in Spanish Town, while Stamma Gramma, aged 22 raised in Tavern, Papine in Jamaica hails from New York in the United States where he is president of Gtunez, one of the fastest developing companies ever to make its debut in the dancehall music industry scene.
Gaza Nana met Vybz Kartel while performing at a show in Dela Splash in 2008, while Stamma Gramma met Vybz Kartel and Shawn Storm in 2008 at Portmore Empire All Schools Jamboree where he was introduced to the audience by the latter as one of the future members of Gaza, then named Portmore Empire. Stamma Gramma reiterates that Shawn Storm was engaged by his bravery, swagger, and hunger for music, and he had planned to introduce him to Vybz Kartel only to have those plans interrupted following Stamma Gramma’s untimely migration to the United States. According to Stamma Gramma, he feels that with his determination and muti-talented attributes he would have forced his way into the Gaza camp easily, but feels no regret about migrating to the United States because it gave him a major platform to help many artists and producers referring to Gtunez as a game changer and a major success.
Stamma Gramma claims that even though he had taken a short break from music since his introduction on the scene with his super controversial hit single “Scammer Anthem” and beef with ex-Gaza member Tommy Lee Sparta he still has a cult following on most of the social networks because he has figured out the remedy of marketing. That remedy he states will be concealed until he feels it’s the necessary time to expose to the public. He reiterates that it’s this “remedy” that has brought him , his team, sponsors and the practitioners involved so much success with Gtunez, adding that he receives over fifty request per week from mainstream and underground artists, songwriters, graphic designers and producers who want to either distribute, sign or work for Gtunez.
Both Gaza Nana & Stamma Gramma claims that the formation of Gaza Next Generation was never brought to the attention of Vybz Kartel, nor did they ask for his approval, but maintains that they will only decease and desist with the idea if Vybz Kartel condemns the plan publicly. In a short interview with Gaza Nana he maintains that “At the end of the day, we a Gaza from birth and Vybz Kartel along with fellow ex-members of the Gaza inspire us to do music in fus place hombre.
Many people waa see Kartel fall, and they get wha them wish fah, but we ago mek sure his legacy and what he started don’t end wid his downfall”. In another short interview Stamma Gramma maintained similar statements, “Well, a few people know of this story that im now exposing, you can ask Shawn Storm now about Stamma Gramma, he will confirm all of what I said, but this is not about me nor my story, this is about, preserving one of the most successful legacies in Dancehall music, the Gaza, and who better to do it than the loyal fans and associates of the Gaza. This might come as shock to many people but I own or either help operate majority of the popular Dancehall fan pages on Facebook, including Gaza Fans Only and Dancehall Worldwide alongside one of Gaza Next Generation members Gaza Leeha, and I have been promoting Dancehall and Reggae tirelessly, 24/7 especially the welfare and perseverance of the Gaza camp”.
Stamma Gramma also added that as a music distributor, he holds no prejudice against any artists or producer because he believes in unity and that has been evident during the operation s of Gtunez as a business but as an artist, as an image, a role model, as Stamma Gramma, he separates himself from Gtunez and represent the Gaza fraternity from dem time till now” Other members of the newly formed Gaza Next Generation includes Mobay based artist Gaza Leeha, New York based artist Lala Pinkdoll, and Spanish Town based artists Talex Daynjah, Don Dappa and Wycked Haa.

A disc jockey has created a music video remix using online footage and Vybz Kartel’s controversial voice notes.
The remix is two minutes and 28 seconds long and sees the DJ using soca and dancehall rhythms to make music with the alleged evidence that jurors used to convict the Grammy Provisional list of nominees deejay.
The DJ did not want to reveal his name to the public when contacted by The STAR. However, his video is doing the rounds on social networks, receiving more than 370 shares on Facebook and making thousands of impressions.
The DJ also added humour to the video buy using video clips of Vybz Kartel using a BlackBerry while his song Touch Me If Yuh Bad is played in the background, putting emphasis on the line “Yuh ever kill a lizard”.
Touch Me If Yuh Bad was released before the murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams but became famous after media outlets used it as background vocals for their coverage of the many stories that surrounded Vybz Kartel’s trial.
Video clips featuring the famous Gecko lizard from the comedic Geico advertisements were also used by the DJ to bring across the storyline. One scene shows the Gecko lizard dancing to Vybz Kartel’s song. Another scene shows the lizard sailing in a boat while Vybz Kartel’s voice note complements the scene as the deejay says, “Dem bwoy deh fi guh wey.” One of Vybz Kartel’s cronies is also heard saying, “Di man dem a sey it look like dem cut, enuh.”
Clips from Vybz Kartel’s Clarks video were also used to add visual humour to the voice note in which the deejay was complaining that he wanted his ‘shoes’ returned.
According to the DJ, the response to his music video remix has been positive. “My friend, whom I work alongside, told me to do the remix because he knew I could do it. It’s fun, and the reception has been crazy. I had my Facebook page flooding with friend requests and comments. people are texting my page saying they need me to edit for them, but I’m ok. I just love audio and video editing with a passion, that’s all,” he said.
Some viewers also shared their thoughts on the remix. “It sick mi DJ – I love how yu change the rhythm pon it,” one viewer said. Another shared: “SICK SICK SICKK.”

Dancehall artiste Vanessa Bling, formerly called Gaza Slim, has denied allegations that she and her former boss, Vybz Kartel, were sending each other messages alluding to sexual activities prior to his arrest.
The allegations started on Facebook last Thursday, after a Facebook page called ‘Vybz Kartel pics exposed’ shared BlackBerry messages allegedly sent from the Independent Ladies deejay to the self proclaimed ‘World Boss’.
Vanessa Bling says she wants the culprits responsible for the controversial page to leave her name out of their garbage.
“I want you to kindly leave my name out of this madness and mixup. I am focused on myself right now, and I am not into this garbage. unno put Adidja through too much already, suh unno can stop now,” Slim warned.
The artiste says she could not have sent those distasteful messages to anybody because she does not use Blackberry messenger or Facebook.
“Mi nuh use Facebook, and mi off a Blackberry for several years now. So whosoever a write dem things deh, please stop! I wouldn’t write something like that, I don’t know about that, and I am not into that,” she continued. “People are always on Facebook and BBM pretending to be me,” Vanessa Bling said.
The artiste is currently promoting her latest single called Touch Me Right.
