Two reggae acts, currently on top of their game, have come together to create magic on screen. Queen Ifrica, affectionately called the “fyah muma”, riding high on a number of hit songs which include “ Below the Waist” and “Daddy Don’t Touch Me There“, and Steele the ever energetic and charismatic artist with hits such as “Slave Driver” and “Confession“, have put their heart and soul into bringing to life their current duet “New World (remix)”. The different passions that this song brings out are displayed on screen and there is no mystery as to why this music video is already creating quite a buzz. Shot mostly at the fishing village in Portmore Jamaica, where it seemed as though the entire community came out to support these artists, it was a day that was filled with genuine togetherness from all. Steele and Queen Ifrica could be seen reasoning with the many men, women and children that had gathered for the shoot, and the love could be felt. The song “New World (remix)” is currently receiving steady rotation on radio and this video will most definitely help to build its momentum.
Steele also took the time to shoot a second video. The song is called “Goose and Ganda“, which is another cut from his cd “The Love of Jah“. Once again the message comes across perfectly. With a story line and actors that will have you laughing aloud, this video tells the tale of many relationships today. Just always remember “What’s good for the Goose is good for the Ganda“.
Both videos were coordinated and shot by Wayne Benjamin of Fabrikated ProjeX. MOBS Production, the indie label representing Steele, is relentless in their effort to bring the artist to the forefront, and already it is paying dividend for him. Steele remains humble and continues to thank the fans, and all forms of media representatives that take the time to support his work.

“The Love of Jah” steadily climbing the charts:
Steele’s cd has moved up a spot to number 9 on the Jamaica Music Countdown (The Hit List) album/cd charts. Tracks from the sophomore compilation continue to enjoy steady rotation on Jamaican radio, and before long Steele will be back there to perform.
On the other side of the globe, the Netherlands to be exact, “The Love of Jah” has been added to the Reggae Vibes Show Top 50 album recommendations. The program, hosted by Teacher and Mr. T. is aired on CRM RADIO 102.7fm in that country. The cd has entered the chart at number 31 and with steady rotation upward movement is expected. In Canada, “New World (straight mix)” another cut from “The Love of Jah“, sits at the number 3 spot on CBC’s Galaxie Reggae Top Canadian Spins.
Canada – Home of Steele:
“It’s amazing how time has passed, and how things have developed, I still remember the first time I played with the band Tatix, what a joy. I remember sweating at the Bamboo Club and feeling the energy from my fans. I also remember the first time my music was played on radio, what a blessing. Now let’s forward to today. I still cherish the opportunity that Tatix gave me, I still love to perform, actually it’s my high. From nightclubs to big festivals, it really doesn’t matter. I love to perform. I truly respect all the radio personalities across Canada and the rest of the world, that take the time to play my music, and to all other media personnel who continue to support my work, I am forever grateful. Mostly, to my fans that have stood by me and encouraged me to keep striving for greatness, you are the reason why I do what I do. Maximum respect every time, I am still pressing on. Canada is my home.”
