    This time we are presenting a rising stare of dancehall music, Jamaican singer Fyah Wariyah: the Congo rebel, who came to the front last March with his first singgle 'Congo Bongo'.

    Dwayne Jerome Thomas, better known as Fyah Wariyah, is a young man born on the 27th of June 1988 who spent his childhood running on the streets of rural Jamaica. He was raised together with his brothers and sisters by his grandparents. The interest he has in music developed very early, starting to practice his deeyaing skills in primary school. He said in an interview that Sizzla Kalonji was the one who influcenced him the most, with his very charachteristic rythems. To those Fyah added his own style of melodic singing. He wrote his first song 'Get to know you' while going to Claude Mckay's high school, which is where he realised music is what makes him happy and is the sole purpose of his life.


    Fyah moved to Kingston in 2009 and listening to all the artist who 'be doin dem ting' he took his music even more seriously. In one oh the interviews he expresses the hope that his fresh look and unique lyrics, backed up with dancehall beats will secure him a place in the music industry. After a very well recieved concert that was part of the event 'trip to Mexico' he realised that cooperation with the public is what gives him energy and will bring him even further in the music industry. Since he is still a fresh face on the scene he asked for the help of Promo king, an artist working under Skeng Legacy Records. With his work and by securing Fyah a regular spot on the radio stations, the artist is now on a good path to take the next steps in his music career.


    The music and lyrics of his songs have positive thoughts as their most important theme. He makes it more than clear that he is not a part of the 'badman culture' and that his music is strictly of a modern roots kind. With the messages of his songs he addresess the youths, encouraging them to be positive, motivated, and treat women with love and respect that they deserve. His first single was followed by 'Who Jah Love', 'Don't you give away my love', and 'Politician', while this year he already released two new dancehall hits 'Champion' and 'Tradition'. Definetly one to keep in mind.

    With the summer solstice having just passed, the longest days of the year are ideal for squeezing in a few more reggae tunes. Compiling choice selections by discerning radio hosts from around the globe, here’s the latest issue of Global Reggae Charts magazine!

    Jahcoustix, by virtue of his album Reunion, appears on the cover. The eighth album from the German artist – known for blending reggae with acoustic music – currently holds the third spot on the charts.

    Otherwise, Koffee’s Rapture EP maintains its grip on the top spot, while #2 is a nice debut by Inna De Yard. Sly and Robbie are at #4, for The Final Battle with Roots Radics, with Beres Hammond wrapping up the initial five albums. Jah9’s Feelings continues to shine at #7, just ahead of the veteran Lt Stitchie’s Masterclass. Previous cover artist King Mas rebounds a bit to #11, and two spots behind there’s Shy FX with a pleasant surprise: Raggamuffin SoundTape. Noteworthy for sure: Alborosie’s Unbreakable: Alborosie Meets The Wailers United has nearly done the distance, still hanging on at #18 after eleven months! Finally, there are debuts from Sizzla and Akae Beka tying for twentieth – it will be interesting to see how far those rise in the coming months.

    Practically expected, Koffee is atop the single charts as well for “Toast,” while “Throne” is third. In between is “Guess Who” – Tarrus Riley; Randy Valentine’s collab with Eesah and Runkus, “Blessed,” enters at #4, followed by Jah9 for “Heaven (Ready Fi Di Feeling).” Further down, there’s Hempress Sativa at #7, and then Alborosie & Chronixx with “Contradiction” at #8, celebrating a full year on the charts. Much of the remaining tunes are fresh work from established artists, including the latest from Protoje, Skip Marley, Jah Cure, Buju Banton, and Jesse Royal, as well as legends Keith and Tex with their latest “Global Politics.”

    Plenty of changes on the riddim side, with nothing remaining from last month’s charts. New riddims are the General A General Riddim (Frankie) sits at #1, the Lioness Order Riddim (Oneness) is at #2, and the Tenement Yard 2019 Riddim (Crossfire Sound) appears at #5. The Sweep It Out Riddim (149) and the Lion Pride Riddim: Reloaded (Upsetta) both return to the charts, at #3 and #4 respectively.

    The charts are online and can be found at www.globalreggaecharts.com.

    Kafinal; a single word which resonates as a synonym for the once popular Caribbean "pain killer". Whether based on his comedic timing or a prophetic wish, the choice of the name Kafinal is now a self-contained mantra...This artist eases pain!



    Born in Spanish Town, St Catherine Jamaica, Jeffery "Kafinal" Williams is an established entertainer and vocalist with diverse talents and an affable persona. Currently based in Toronto, Kafinal credits his sometimes difficult upbringing as the source for his strong work ethic, determination and engaging lyrics. As the second of five children he remembers clearly how hard his mother worked to sustain the family. He has admittedly also learned a lot from observing her strong will and continually pays homage to her through his art.

    Like many great musicians who preceded him he too started singing in school and church. He would have his first public appearances on small competition stages across Jamaica. In 2001 while still living in Jamaica he achieved significant success with songs "Cooking dat Pwile" and "Drive By", both well-received across the island and garnering multiple bookings alongside his then musical partner Sambo. The over-whelming crowd responses confirmed for Kafinal that he was meant to be a performer.



    His relocation to Canada would surely challenge his resolve. Doing what can only be best described as "starting over" Kafinal would embark on a new route in the arts. He was led to the Caribbean live show and performance circuits. Within these chandelier-laden halls he would find consistent audience appreciation and have success as an actor and comedian, becoming once again the one-word household name-Kafinal. His first artistic love remained music which he describes as "soul-filling and mood-changing". He loves and appreciates multiple genres of music and credits artists like Michael Jackson, Beres Hammond, Whitney Houston and Bob Marley as influences and models for his taste and choices in music. His career path has shown the Michael Jackson influence most pointedly, as seen through his sound, style and showmanship which has endeared him to audiences in Canada and globally.

    Lyrically Kafinal continues to make waves with catchy and relatable content. Projects like "Road Tonight", "Your Body's Calling", "Nuh Lock off Di Dance" and the more recent Juno award winning song "Nah Complain" (a collaboration with reggae veteran U-Roy) continue to receive multiple chart topping spins across stations and critical acclaim among various journalists and festival promoters.

    Winning the Juno award, which is Canada's highest musical honour alongside Jamaica's pioneer of toasting Daddy U-Roy is an honour Kafinal describes as "a crowning moment in my career to date". He has deliberately viewed this honour as just the beginning of more hard work. In the weeks leading up to the awards he was busy working to complete his project "Crying Out For Love"; a now chart-topping collaboration with veteran reggae crooner Ken Boothe and the original king of Jamaica's dancehall genre Yellowman. This project heralds the path Kafinal, the affable pain-killer is on. He is determined to give the music industry, music of "value" with messages that are needed in today's music.



    In summer 2018 he released, “Stunner Boss” a more up-tempo dancehall fave. Now October 2018 he has stepped up his collaboration efforts to release the single “Talk or no Talk” which features Jamaica’s own Queen Ifrica. This song presents the quandary of whether a friend should reveal the cheating habits of his friend’s spouse. Queen Ifrica’s lyrics adds an honest and sobering female perspective to the question. With lyrics like “if me nuh talk dem a guh call me a traitor if me talk dem a guh call me informer” you see the major cause for being torn in the decision. This true to life scenario will have everybody probing their approach. “Talk or no Talk features the production ear of Eddie Bullen and the musical arrangement or Canadian ban Di Cru.

    Kafinal continues to hone his skills in song writing and music production. With each project we can attest that he has no slow in his settings as he challenges himself to reach a higher mark in music. Through his business venture Sing and Act Entertainment the promise is to deliver talent and excellence. As an artist who has experienced a hard path riddled with numerous challenges, he is extremely grateful to his family and supporters for the successes now and looks forward to presenting more in the future. This son of the JAMAICAN soil is now a notable Canadian award winning talent from whom we should only expect more laudable work ethic and excellence.
