''I am my Brother’s Keeper'' – Delomar of RDX Speaks

I Andre Bedward more popularly known as Delomar and his team issue the following statement:

“Over the years, RDX as a group/duo has helped to strengthen reggae-dancehall music and culture globally. The journey both publicly and privately has had its toll both positively and negatively on all parties involved.  
 
However, the reason why I (Delomar) choose this journey and career wasn’t solely in the pursuit of fame or fortune but rather to make my dream a reality and be an inspiration to those who are marginalized in our society.
 
RDX and what it represents cannot be erased from history, and irrespective of our personal choices and beliefs, I Delomar would like to make it publicly known that RDX will always be a part of who I am.
 
Contrary to public statements and viewpoints expressed or inferred, I will never seek to tarnish the brand and disrespect the fans who have provided myself with a medium where I have been able to provide for my family and friends over the years.
 
Reggae-dancehall music and culture is bigger than any one individual, and as we evolve, we must with the same fortitude show respect not just to the journey but to all stakeholders.
 
“No man is an island” by the legendary Dennis Brown, remains just as relevant today as it did more than 20 years ago when I first heard it.
 
Over the years, I have faced criticism from my peers, friends and others which have not daunted my pursuit but more strengthen my resolve. I will not let my years of hard work, my personal ego and the respect I have for the industry and fans, allow me to engage in any action that might bring RDX and or myself into disrepute. 
 
It is without a doubt, that RDX as a duo have reach an impasse and as such, we have chosen to pursue solo careers. With singles such as ‘Dweet’ produced by Blaqk Sheep Music/Rekit Ralf Music; ‘Whole Night’ by DJ Frankco/Ovation Lab and ‘Badness’ produced by Rekit Ralf Music/Blaqk Sheep Music scheduled for release on Wednesday Oct 14th, 2020 not to mention the PINK Riddim featuring some of Jamaica’s most talented females, I am solely focused on the music. 
 
Irrespective of everything, I want it to be known just as I am RDX and it is a part of who I am, I will always be my brother’s keeper.”

DON DADA NEW ALBUM "ALKEBULAN"

Humanitarian, RuFF CuTT Studio owner and recording multi-platinum selling Reggae / Hip-Hop artiste Menelik Nesta Gibbons aka DON DADA officially released his highly anticipated album, ALKEBULAN on January 17, 2020.  DON DADA is determined to raise and promote his ALKEBULAN album as an important part of black history that must become known as OurStory.  The album’s release coincides with the African continent leaders’ unity conversations, and is available on all digital services worldwide distributed by Tuff Gong International.

"I AM AN AFRICAN BECAUSE MY SPIRIT CRIES FOR THE SOIL" exalts Don Dada.

Alkebulan is The Original name for Africa: " The Land Of The Blacks"

Alkebulan is the oldest and the only name of indigenous origin. It was used by the Moors, Nubians, Numidian’s, Khart-Haddans (Carthaginians), and Ethiopians. Africa, the current name adopted by almost everyone today, was given to this continent by a European invader by the name of Louis Africanus. Like all methods of manipulation, the Romans sought to completely disconnect the indigenous Africans from their culture, deities, and knowledge.

"Think about your Alkebu-lan consciousness, your culture, your names, your homeland, your past, your civilizations, your heritage, your ancestors, and your Mind. Today we have a false identity of self, self-hatred, hatred for your brother, and a deep hatred for Alkebu-lan our origin.” Nana Nasi

The delivery of ALKEBULAN is a phenomenal physical interpretation of the power of Afrkans coming together at home and abroad, to deliver a common purpose. To achieve the outcome this project was coordinated across continents and countries.  Don Dada (South Africa) partnering with Leroy Scarlett of Reggae PowerHouse Band (Jamaica) as producer of seven of the eight tracks. The eighth track, “Here We Go Again” is produced by Zimbabwean Gerald "Fashalz" Mushaike.

To change the narrative of the negative events that affect our beloved Afrika, addressing social issues while bringing messages of self-pride, love, hope, peace, reconciliation and celebration yet still capturing the essence and vibrancy of Africa, the eight track album “ALKEBULAN“ was birthed.

The album with tracks "Message from AfriKa", "ALBEBULAN" and "Who Dem Are Run From" captures its audience with the blended sounds of AfriKa and Jamaica.  For the tracks “Spirit Of Afrika” and “Love Is A Universal Language” Don Dada features Jessica Mbangeni, one of South Africa’s most sought after female Imbongi (praise Singer) who has made her mark in a male dominated cultural terrain. Invoking the role of this ancient tradition bringing the feeling, vibes and soul of Africa into the album.

The music for the tracks “Spirit Of Afrika” and “Love Is A Universal Language" were orginally produced by the late legendary Jamaican producer, Clement ‘Sir Coxsone” Dodd. 

To lighten the mood are the tracks "Sweetie LAVO" and "Jah Is Good" feature South African artiste Seed Under. "Sweetie LAVO" brings the feelings of a township wedding vibe.  "Jah Is Good" pioneers a new generation of hope as Don Dada shares his song with messages of love, unity and kingdom values with the world, inspiring everyone to not only feel and also think positive. Whilst “Here We Go Again” acknowledges his team and daily blessings and challenges.

Having already won the hearts of many people with his multi-platinum hit "Viva Mandela,” and newer releases "Heal Mama AfriKa” and “WAR” an apocalyptic song showing that not much of the social ethos has changed across the globe.  ALKEBULAN is expected to show the whole world that peace and love changes everything.
