New Image Promotions Artistes Update Jan 7th - 14th!!


Fantan Mojah "Tax Invasion" a controversial hit!!
Fantan Mojah has recorded and released what already seems to be a controversial and potential hit song entitles "Tax Invasion" produced by Tremma House Productions on the Massacre Rhythm.  The single hit the airwaves late evening January 6th on ZIP 103FM and immediately after several radio jocks have called in for their copies.  Upon hearing about the radio djs' reaction towards the song, Fantan took it to the streets to get a reaction from the people and the response was the same.  "Tax Invasion" earned massive forwards and replays, a testament that this song is indeed a potential hit.  As the name suggests, Tax Invasion addresses Jamaica current economic problems and the many increases on basic food items brought on by the Government in an effort to cover the country's debts.  Other artistes have addressed the situation but Fantan Mojah's "Tax Invasion" track on the Massacre riddim is the cereal (see real) being fed to the masses at this time as he continues in his mission to advocate for poor people.
I-Octane record 30 performances between late November and December!
Reggae crusader I-Octane performed at a record 30 events between late November and December last year including 98% of all the major shows held in Jamaica during that period.  Many are still talking about his STING 2009 performance and the massive forwards he received from beginning to end of his performance.  Octane's journey was never easy and is still far from perfection but his efforts and overall islandwide campaign, the interest, motivation and contribution of management company Arrows Recording and team player and Road Manager Biggs have placed I-Octane at the top of his game.  Having started the New Year right, the high energy, high performance artiste now prepares for his first Europe tour and the release of a debut album.
