The advent of internet sharing sites such as YouTube has changed the rules of the musical world. Now, artists can almost happen radio and television to promote their songs. Turbo Wine by Rickman is a good example. Posted in October 2013 on YouTube, the video has already attracted over a million views (A “view” is recorded whenever a user watched a video).

“Since our founding (G Crew), we feel that our work is not valued. We never had rewards and radios do not really play our music.” Turbo Wine is a collaboration with Konshens. The Jamaican dancehall star was visiting Guyana in May 2013. Rickman, a member of the G-Crew group – well known for hits like “Fanm pa gen boug”, “sipped or Tèt bese” – took the opportunity to propose a combination on one of his compositions. The singer accepts and records his part a few days later.
This weekend, Rickman will release a new music video entitled, “Hotta Faya”.
DJ Kaas Media wishes to congratulate Rickman and Konshens with their record breaking effort!
