Esteemed author Taliba Morgan, daughter of Jamaica’s legendary Reggae pioneer Denroy Morgan and sister to Morgan Heritage, world-renowned Reggae band has released the whimsical children's book "Lizzy and the Magic Coat: Sweet Sweet Dreams".

While Lizzy dreams, she goes on magical journeys to far-away places where she encounters all kinds of delightful characters to convey important life's lessons. In this story "Sweet Sweet Dreams", Lizzy will learn her first life lesson that will change her perception on the importance of listening.

I created this story sometime after my mother died. She died when i was 9 years old and she was gifted a fur coat for me and i hated to wear it...However when she died i would wish that the coat would take me to her. I never thought i would make it through without her. So when i was 13 i wrote my first short book "Me and my Fur Coat" and Now that i am a mom and have my own daughter and have experienced a mothers love, I have now evolved the title to "Lizzy and the Magic Coat". The character is named after my daughter Elizabeth."

The American Academy of Pediatrics acknowledge the importance of reading to children from birth, as it enhances vocabulary and other important communication skills. Reading books aloud to children stimulates their imagination and expands their understanding of the world. It helps them develop language and listening skills and prepares them to understand the written word. “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.” ― Dr. Seuss

"Lizzy and the Magic Coat: Sweet Sweet Dreams" is available at Barnes and Nobles, Amazon and will be released on Kindle.

Anthony B Freed of Weed Charge

Anthony B was held and released from a Georgia jail February 2nd, 2013, five days after he and nine members of his band and road crew were arrested in that state for ganja-related charges. Fast forward to 2015. The artist is now exonarated.


Read more below:

Singjay Anthony B, whose real name is Keith Anthony Blair, has been exonerated on a 2013 possession of marijuana with intent to distribute charge in the United States. “I have always maintained my innocence, and I feel vindicated that the courts have seen it fit to discontinue this trumped up case against me. I was not guilty, I did not have any weed in my possession, and justice has been served,” Anthony B said.

He was informed of the discontinuation by US authorities two weeks ago. In 2013, Anthony B spent five days in a Georgia jail after he and nine members of his band and road crew were arrested in that state for ganja-related charges.

Ten persons were pulled over by state police on January 27 for a window tint violation along Interstate 75 in Houston County. Five ounces of ganja and US$7,900 were found in the vehicle. All were subsequently charged for possession of marijuana with intent to distribute the weed.

Anthony B was released after posting bond of $1,000 for each charge. Nine others arrested and charged with similar offenses.  The singjay, who first made a name with fiery songs like Fire Pon Rome and Raid The Barn in the late 1990s, followed up with a high dancehall single, the chart-burning number one single, Tease Her, in the early 2000s.

In July 2013, he released the critically acclaimed ‘Tribute to Legends’, an album of cover versions of songs by artists such as Bob Marley, The Maytals, John Lennon, Ray Charles, Elvis Presley, and Ini Kamoze.

He is in the middle of a resurgence with his career with his latest single, How Do You Sleep?’, being a regular fixture in the top 10 of the FIWI Choice Top Ten charts, while a new single, ‘Low Mi Wid Mi Weed’ is getting favourable airplay on FM radio.

He is now on a European tour.

Since inking his new deal the burgeoning star has released his first single titled ‘Blah Daff’ to much fanfaronade especially from the female populous.

According to Demarco, “aside from my personal goals as an artiste I want to genuinely make a positive contribution to the entertainment industry not only through my music but also help in the discovery and nurturing of new talents because that is the only way we as an industry will be able to sustain longevity for the genres.”

On the subject of personal accomplishments, Demarco earlier this week achieved another career milestone following the announcement that his female dance anthem ‘Puppy Tail’ had surpassed the million mark on Youtube affiliate network VEVO bolstered by fresh reports of clinching the No.1 spot on Richie B’s Top 25 Dancehall Singles Chart (Jamaica) and SFDC Weekly Dancehall Chart (Africa, UK & Europe) based in Britain.

Speaking on the achievement Demarco says,
“Since wrapping my recent tours of the United Kingdom and Europe I have seen a significant increase in the popularity of ‘Puppy Tail’ and other songs especially in those markets, hence I believe that is a contributing factor in the upsurge. Thanks all the fans across the globe for the continued support because it’s they who provide the inspiration for us as artiste to continue doing good music.”

Meanwhile, as part of his ongoing campaign Demarco will be shooting a series of music videos in the weeks ahead amid promoting the singles ‘Levels To This’, ‘Celebrate My Life’, ‘Text Back’ and ‘Love & Happiness’ the latter featured on the ZJ Chrome produced Dancehall Sings compilation.

Gully Bop Attack is a fun, upbeat song, it’s all about humor and laughter. I did it to make people laugh, if you take a good look at the history of Dancehall music you will see that humor is a very big part of it,” said Turbo Blacks.

The song which samples the rhythm of Pap San’s 1990s hit, Maddy Maddy Cry, was recorded last week and is already enjoying heavy rotation on a number of popular radio stations.

“This song is hit bound, a lot of selectors and DJs are requesting it already, it’s going to be a hit, said the artiste”

Turbo Blacks also plans to shoot music videos for Gully Bop Attack & Mi Nuh Fraid a Gully Bop (Inna This).
