Dancehall/reggae artiste Mr Vegas blasts critics


The first video for his single Party Tun Up received tremendous backlash from members of the public who felt Mr Vegas had used too many white girls in the video.

Now, with the remix doing really well in local and international spheres, expectation mounts surrounding the release of its official music video which features Sean Paul and international artiste Fatman Scoop.

In an interview with The STAR, Mr Vegas sought to blast critics who he says need to get away from the backward thinking to see beyond black and white.

"When I'm doing music I don't see colour, I see talent. I have done music videos with girls of every race, as long as they are professional and talented. Music has no colour," he said.

The date of the official release of the music video for Party Tun Up remix is still unknown but Mr Vegas hints that it may be sometime this week and says the dancing in the video is something to look forward to.

"The vibe in the video is just pure fun. The dances were choreographed by Tanisha Scott and parts of the video were shot in Italy and New York City," he said.

The entertainer also sought to clear the air surrounding the recent Instagram fallout between himself and fellow artiste Tony Matterhorn.

Last month Mr Vegas released a song voicing his opinion about the seemingly raunchy turn dancehall had taken, hitting out against deejays Tony Matterhorn and Alkaline. The song seemingly struck a chord with Matterhorn who took to the social networking site to blast Vegas. In various video posts, Matterhorn accuses Vegas of getting a tummy tuck and calls him an 'Obeah man monkey' with Vegas responding "see the song yah weh a cause problem, but mi stand by it 100%."

Vegas admitted to The STAR that he was not particularly fond of Instagram and only posted things on the site to answer Matterhorn's comments. He however, said he doesn't plan to take the showdown beyond social media.

"Matterhorn is a character innu, always in the middle of things and I was overjoyed at his default so I seized the opportunity to respond and now we're even at 1-1," he said.

He also took the time to update his fans on his upcoming trailer Bruk it Dung to Reality. "We are working out the budget right now. The last thing we want is for it to come out and flop so we're ensuring that everything is done properly." He also said that expectations surrounding the series is high and he wants to ensure that the product is all about entertainment and not Mr Vegas.
