Jah bukie

Jah bukie Courtney Anthony Stewart, a.k.a. Jah bukie, is an emerging Jamaican singer, songwriter and producer. Jah bukie’s style of music is Positive roots reggae as he was truly influenced by the great legendary Wailers (Bob Marley’s band) and a diverse variety of the great reggae performers and their uplifting music of the ‘80s. Born on April 4, 1977, Jah bukie grew up in the communities of Stokes Hall, Saint Thomas and Kingston, Jamaica. With the intention to contribute nothing but good music to the people, in 2007 he started his own record label, First Born Productions, which he currently renamed as “[Urban Boyz Productions]”. In 2008, the first evocative single “Evil Out There” introduced his talent to the current Jamaican music scene, followed by two explosive tracks: “Coke and the Guns” and the socially concious “Scrap Metal”. Inspired by his respect and appreciation of the music he shares with the world stage, Jah bukie also uses the               positive message of Urban Boyz to recruit other young talents. Check out his production of the romantic song “My Love” by his cousin and label mate “Tadius” (Nicholas Stewart). The determination to pursue his musical dream was forged early on Jah bukie’s life beginning in childhood and on through his early school years. By 1995 Jah bukie’s choice to move forward encouraged his ambition to find a way to succeed. It was not an easy road to travel, but in 2002, he got the opportunity to visit England which opened doors to his first studio work. In 2004 Jah bukie made his first demo at DJ Publo studio in south London. Despite continued difficult times for the Music, his aspirations to break into the industry endured and Jah bukie’s persistence sustained his spirit. Surviving bad times from the past, his journeys brought him home to Jamaica to fulfill his musical promise and the single, “Evil Out There” was released in early 2008. Today, the youthful dreams of his music have become a reality and he is working on the growth of [Urban Boyz Productions’], promotions and distribution. The hard- won proof that he will not allow anything to prevent him from succeeding flows through the positive message he brings in his songs. A thought-provoking songwriter, Jah bukie daily prayers to Jah seek assurance that the people will hear him singing and the people will unite as One. He hopes his Music brings high respect from his listeners and reflects his appreciation for those who set him on the path of this Music…This music he has come to love so very much…This music shall live forever… He sings the Truth. This is Jah bukie! - Wake the Town

Innovator, The girls DJ, Mr. Mix-up and Blender, God of Slangs, Mr. New Talk. Just a few of the name used to describe the DJ born Donte Dawyer, formally known as Blacka Ranks, now known as Blacker. If you want to know what's new or what's clicking in the dancehall, just talk to Blacker for two minutes. Whether he created it or not, he has them all locked. 'Ah suh di ting set up'. 'nuh duh mi dat'... 'how dat drop een'. 'Yuh suppose to'. 'of course'. 'wid attitude' . he has them all. Many to this day do not know that it was Blacker who coined the world renowned phrase 'Toppa-top' (Top of the top). But ask Bounty Killer and he will tell you Blacker was first to use it.
And if you think Blacker is light weight, ask Sound System selector ace Tony Materhorn about the night Blacker went toe-to-toe with his mentor, Grammy ace Shabba Ranks, to the delight of all girls who were present. Donte will proudly tell you when he was asked by a promoter to close a show that Jodeci had performed on at the height of their career.
Mr. Been There, Done that. and now he is back with hit after hit, song after song. After the mega international hit 'A gal jus a watch yuh' (with Alton Blacka) in the mid 1990's, Blacker is kicking again with Attitude, Run di Place Look, Tek Off Supm, Ting Deh, Blue Bomber and many more.
There is one thing every man wishes he could do consistently. Well. one of the many things most men wish they could do. That is always knowing the right thing to say to a girl to make her smile. Donte has mastered that art with the lines he comes up with in the hooks of his songs. This ability has brought him admiration from fans all across the female spectrum, from female radio personalities, Christian women and even the elderly lasses. And he has never detracted from the topic of women. Donte has never recorded a song that was not about girls. Never!! And it would seem that the immediate future holds of the same for the real toppa-top Girls dem DJ. As he would put it "Dem seh dem hype, but nobody hype like Blacker."
