Shaka Pow Busy with Music and Medicine

Shaka Pow aka 'Di Outfytt General' is about to release a brand new video to the tune of his late recording and colab featuring the sexxy Tyona entitled, Cranberry. Produced by Claims Record, Cranberry was shot on location on the Outfytt Corner.  Other artistes featured on the riddim are Dancehall's International DJ Mavado along with Chase Cross from the Gully Squad, Bom Bom and Keida, Sizzla Kolanji, Determine and Jahvinchi.  As Shaka's work pace increases, the Outfytt General has recorded on The Horizon 'TUFF' Head medley with an artiste called Breaka which also feature other tracks by artistes Ding Dong, Sadiki, New Kidz, Konshens and Tajji for Truck Back Records.  A third soon to be release track to look out for from Shaka Pow is called 'Wine and Bubble' produced by Cash Flow.  

While popular track Shamballa continue its rage in the Dancehall among the new tracks mentioned above, Shaka's 'Dancing 101' album and tribute to Bogle and Ice receives multiple downloads from fans mainly in Japan and the United States.  Now working on a new album that is yet to be titled, Shaka is excited about one in particular called, One Knock on the Mercuray riddim aka Dweet Again riddim produced by Ace Dancehall producer Snow Cone of Worldwide Billboard topping acclaim with Sean Paul's hit single 'Temperature'.  Snowcone came to prominence in 2000 with the Rice and Peas riddim that featured Bounty Killa's hit song, 'Mystery is the Man.' 

Known to be a workaholic! The Doctor gives twice as much to his all too important career as a Medical Practioner.  Recently Dr. Garth McDonald made a courtesy call on the Governor General of Jamaica, Sir Howard Cooke, with the clinical leaders mentorship group from the Victoria Jubilee hospital in Kingston.  Well, some politicians and important people of Jamaica found it rather annoying that recently a Minister of Government tweeted in Jamaican creole and using popular Dancehall slangs "shellingz and tun up" Dr. Shaka Pow is comfortable speaking in the native language and using the popular slangs, he said "mi waa the world fi know mi a work.  Di thing tun up."

Look out and listen for ONE KNOCK! Coming soon also, "Wine and Bubble" for Cash Flow Records, TUFF Head video medley and the brand spanking new video for CRANBERRY featuring Tyona.
