Cultural artiste Fantan Mojah has refuted claims by Bembe selector Rolexx that he is threatening him.
In a release sent to THE STAR, Rolexx claimed that Fantan Mojah went to a studio in Kingston search in for him.
The release said, “Rolexx went to a studio in Kingston yesterday to voice dub plates with Mavado when he was told by fellow selectors Foota Hype and Cutty from Copper Shot that Fanton Mojah and his entourage had been to the same studio the same day looking for Rolexx and making threats.”
Rolexx said he was unsure of the reason for the threats as he did not have a bad relationship with the artiste.
However, Fantan Mojah said he has not threatened Rolexx or gone in search of him with his entourage at a studio.
no beef between us
“Wi nuh search fi people. Wi a king so wi send go call people,” Fantan Mojah told THE STAR. “There is no beef between us. Is just a fire wi a bun and the people dem a push it out of proportion. Mi neva really send no threat to the yute dem. A more love for all,” he said.
Though he denies making any threats or searching for Rolexx at the studio, Fantan Mojah said he did not believe reggae artistes were getting enough recognition.
“Wi tired fi go a different event and nuh hear no reggae song. Is just a fire wi a bun, wi nuh mean no harm. The selector dem just need fi play more reggae music and stop gwaan like a dancehall alone a feed di yutes dem,” he said. “If yuh tek a Bembe, Weddi Weddi or Passa Passa CD go Europe, yuh nuh hear no reggae music.”
lack of play
Fantan Mojah said with this lack of play, it might appear as if the reggae artistes, including Tarrus Riley, Lutan Fyah, Gyptian, Sizzla and he, were not producing any form of music.
Therefore, Fantan Mojah says he is asking all selectors to play reggae songs as much as they play dancehall songs.
Nonetheless, in the release, Rolexx said he would continue to play music and that nothing and nobody could stop him from doing his thing.
