New York, USA : As quoted by one of the digital distribution kingpin’s in dancehall who contacted me with their feedback following the first article, “everything you said was true and continues to be so. We have new clients that come to us every day with the same issues people have had for 2 years”. I could go on and fill this article with ten pages of testimonies from many respected people who have suffered from the tyranny of this wolf.
Apparently, our first article was poorly written, and was labeled as a character assassination attempt by some very deluded individuals, so let me warn you, this one will strike you same deluded individuals as character annihilation. It was clearly stated that I went very soft on Mr. Wonder; I even purposely singled out his accolades, dissecting the good, the bad and the ugly from this dancehall bully. If I was such a hater as described by Hapilos Group’s counterfeit writer, I would have never extended my admiration and appreciation for what the wolf has done for dancehall.
Answer this. When does one’s success permit them to conduct business without ethics, courtesy, professionalism, structure and morals of any sort? Never! Let’s look at the likes of former U.S president George Bush. Sure he was an eloquent individual who ruled with an iron fist. I can even proceed to say that during Bush’s administration the American economy was at its most profitable status in years. What George Bush and JWonder has in common? Well, they are both vampires. They suck the blood from their respective industries while using manipulative tactics to paint a positive humanitarian picture. One that has kept the public under a severe illusion.
Look at the state of America now! No one seems to complain when they are making money, hence the musicians’ naïve mentality towards Jwonder’s corruption, but is it worth sacrificing your soul, values and morals to gain the wealth of the world? Is it worth diluting the dancehall industry with political pollution to reap the benefits and feed the one percent of producers and artists that seem to be capitalizing from the corruption in the industry while the majority or musicians slowly fades away in the shadows?
Am I the only one that thinks our community deserves a more diplomatic figure to represent our dancehall culture? Why should we sit back and allow this wolf that has been cheating artists and producers out of their music sales for years to continue his wrecking ball on our beloved industry. He boasts about what he has done yet he cannot address any of the claims made against him. All him and his counterfeit writer was able to conjure up was the plaudits that I made about him in the first article. Are you serious? You are telling me that you could not find anything else positive to say about your beloved company who supposedly treats all customers equally? You were so unimaginative and doubtful in your services that all you could do was to reproduce what I said to represent yourself in a positive light. I’m just now wondering if our music industry is also suffering from a lack of competent journalists because I have never read a response from an author that is as dull and lackluster as their response.
Mr. Wonder, the time has come; you are on trial by the Jamaican people; its producers, artists and fans for your corruption in the music industry. You insist on terminating popular YouTube channels that continuously promote dancehall across the world to aid your monopolization of the music. You insists on bullying everyone that makes an editable mistake on digital publications, you insists on treating artists like they are less than human beings, you insists on robbing musicians of their earnings, you insists on attacking every other movement that aims to help to distribute dancehall music to the masses, you insists on having the business ethics of a kindergarten dropout.
Let me ask YOU sir, what exactly are you doing for Dancehall again?
Below is a recently interview conducted by Bogie with YouTube Promoter JJ Eva Frass & Dancehall Artiste Stamma Gramma as they speak further on the issue.
