Dancehall artiste Ninja Man says he does not want to clash new sensation Gully Bop as he is not in his class. The veteran deejay will be performing on the annual Boxing Day show, Magnum Sting 2014, along with the fast-rising Gully Bop and several of dancehall and reggae music’s top acts.
He told THE STAR; “Mi nuh want him people dem a gas him up because dem likkle performance deh a nuh nothing to my level. Him is just a knock-off a try be Ninja Man, even mi clothes wey mi wear, mi see Gully Bop guh buy half of it, after mi done wear the full suit.”
The artiste said the persons leading Gully Bop are opportunists, and should be careful how they manage the career of the 50-year-old fresh artiste.
“I really don’t want to kill Gully Bop’s little career so early because I want him to make some money to fix his teeth and his ‘bosen’. I would advise his managers to focus on developing the artiste and record some good songs for him while he is hot, so that he can have a lasting career, because at the end of the day you will damage his career by putting him up against people,” he said.
Pet and pamper
Ninja Man, who has been clashing since 1988, says Sting’s promoters should have respect for his contribution to the show, and local music.
“Gully Bop sey him want to take care of his mother, take my advice and go that route. Mi step inna Jam World 1988 and mi only lose one war and 25 wins and one a dem a sell mi sell it. So mi nuh pet and pamper war. Him sey him freestyle, but a me mek freestyle inna dancehall, suh dem career wi stall,” he said.
As for Gully Bop’s managers, Ninja said; .”Lowe di youth mek him fix him teeth inna peace. Oh God, unno too wicked man, di biggest artiste dem fraid a mi and a Gully Bop unno wah send.”
Gully Bop admitted in a recent interview that Ninja Man was his mentor. However, he said that he would be willing to clash the veteran at Sting to prove that his free-styling skills are better.
“Ninja Man outdated man,” Gully Bop said.

INFLUENTIAL disc jockey Ron Muschette is no longer with radio station IRIE FM. He resigned yesterday “with immediate effect”.
No reason was given for the resignation but Muschette, 41, said there is no animosity between himself and the station that helped make him one of local entertainment’s biggest names.
Muschette joined the all-reggae station in 1999 and hosted the widely-popular Wake-Up Call, which airs from 6:00 am to 10:00 am on weekdays.
“I’m grateful for my time at IRIE FM and for all the wonderful experiences it brought. I was able to travel the world and be recognised for my talent. That is an inspiration in itself and I will be forever thankful,” Muschette said in a release.
Muschette, who is from Westmoreland, started his career as a Barry G (former Jamaica Broadcasting Corporation disc jockey Barry Gordon) sound-alike at an in-house radio station while working as an entertainment coordinator at Sandals Montego Bay .
After going to IRIE FM in 1999, he quickly established himself as one of local radio’s top announcers, playing a number of pre-release songs by top artistes.
Muschette is the second top disc jockey to leave a leading radio station in a matter of weeks. Jerry ‘Jerry D’ Davey was sacked by the RJR Communications Group in November
