Demarco tops British Dancehall Chart & nominated for 'Male Deejay of The Year'
Amidst wrapping the tenth episode and season finale for his now popular reality series ‘Talk Yuh Mind’, international Dancehall star Demarco has found yet another reason to celebrate following the announcement by British based radio station BBC that his single ‘Good Book’ has topped the urban chart in that country.
Featured on the Zj Liquid produced compilation of a similar name (Good Book Riddim) the song last Friday clinched the No.1 spot on the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) 1Xtra Dancehall chart hosted by Robbo Ranx and was given an official posting via their website. Speaking via his radio show Robbo says ‘The song has been making massive in-rows on the British urban scene’. The instructive street anthem also continues to threaten several charts locally including the Richie B Top 25 Singles where it’s poised at No.11. and No.7 on HYPE-TV VTX Countdown.
A euphoric Demarco said he is very pleased with the progress and credits the success to an aggressive promotional campaign and the hard work of his team.
“A lot of hard work has been put into this project; countless hours and sleepless nights so the strides now being accomplished are just a manifestation of all that effort and I want to personally thank everyone who assisted in the process.” – He added.
Capping this milestone is another tinge of good news courtesy of the Music Industry Achievers Awards (M.I.A) where Demarco has been nominated for ‘Male Deejay of The Year’. He is set to battle for top honours on Thursday, July 10th at the Courtleigh Auditorium against compatriots Aidonia, Konshens, I-Octane and Vybz Kartel.
Meanwhile, after escaping injury in a recent accident involving a motorbike Demarco is expected to depart the island in the coming days to headline a pair of concerts in Canada and Guyana. The artiste is currently promoting the new singles: Stay In My Lane, We Dem A Say, Wine Jiggle & Kotch, and Bad Now. A video has also been released for the latter via is official Youtube channel.
