NE-YO ACCUSES KARTEL AND SPICE FOR HIJACKING BEAT
Just days before Reggae Sumfest, R&B singer Ne-Yo is still unhappy with Vybz Kartel and Spice’s unofficial use of the rhythm for his infectious single Miss Independent.
In an extensive Music News interview Ne-Yo explains that if Kartel and Sspice didn’t get proper permission then they should not have used it. (CLIP)
Vybz kartel and Spice Rompin Shop enjoyed tremendous airplay until the Broadcasting Commission’s ruling against songs that are sexually explicit or violent.
All three entertainers will grace the stage at Reggae Sumfest. Ne-Yo who is slated to perform on international night at the festival says fans can expect a high energy performance.
Ne-Yo is also planning a tribute to Michael Jackson who will be honoured at the festival that’s dedicated to his memory.
Other international entertainers slated for Reggae Sumfest are Toni Braxton, Kerri Hilson, Jasmine Sullivan and rapper Nas.
Reggae Sumfest will run from July 19 to 25 in the second city, Montego Bay.
