Alkaline, Popcaan Nominated For MOBO Reggae Award

Popcaan and Alkaline are among five other reggae dancehall artists vying for this year’s (Music Of Black Origin) MOBO reggae award.

The nominees were recently announced in London ahead of the October 22nd show at the SSE Arena in Wembley.

The other three nominees for the reggae MOBO are Taurus Riley, Chronixx and Stylo G.

This is the first MOBO nomination for Chronixx and Alkaline who have been seeing huge success in reggae and dancehall over the past year.

This marks Popcaan’s third nomination. The former Portmore Empire deejay has been releasing a steady stream of hits since breaking on the scene in 2010.

Influential reggae drummer found dead in Manchester home

Lincoln ‘Style’ Scott, an original member of the influential Roots Radics Band, was killed at his Manchester home Thursday evening.

The Constabulary Communication Network reports that the 58-year-old Scott was found dead by police at his home in Williamsfield district just after 10:00 pm.

The police were told that gunshots were heard from Scott’s home at about 10:10 pm.

No arrests have been made in the case.

Born in Clarendon, Scott was a member of the Jamaica Military Band who also played the North Coast hotel circuit before joining the ‘Radics’.

The band also included bass player Errol ‘Flabba’ Holt, rhythm guitarist Eric ‘Bingy Bunny’ Lamont, lead guitarist Noel ‘Sowell’ Bailey and keyboardist Wycliffe ‘Steely’ Johnson.

They were, arguably, the hottest reggae band of the late 1970s to the mid-1980s, playing on numerous hit songs including Barrington Levy (Looking my Love), Bunny Wailer (Rock ‘N’ Groove) and Gregory Isaacs (Night Nurse).

In recent years, Scott toured Europe frequently as leader of the Dub Syndicate Band which he coordinated with British reggae historian/producer Adrian Sherwood.

In May, the Largeup.com website named Scott number four on its list of top 10 reggae drummers.
