For all you aspiring artists who have a knack for clashing and think that you are the baddest clas artist since Ninja Man; the Don Gorgon himself is giving you the opportunity to prove it through a talent show that he will be launching in February.

According to, Ninja Man, in a recent interview said, “We have our legacy, and it must be passed down to the other generation. Ninja Man is one of the greatest deejays that Jamaica has ever seen and I have been through so much trials and tribulations and I survived.

I just want to pass down all I learnt and my experience to the next generation so that we can have more rounded performers to entertain people.”

Ninja man also stated that this competition is geared towards making more rounded dancehall performers.  “What I want to see are performers that can satisfy the people and don’t just go on stage and say bla bla bla because a performance is more than that.

Deejays are temporary, but entertainers last for a lifetime. Shabba is holding up the international banner for what is left of real authentic dancehall and I am responsible for the preservation of the local legacy,” Ninja said.

Bounty Killer and Downsound records will be responsible for developing the talents of the winner.  He also lauded Bob Dogdanovich for investing in dancehall music,  “I don’t have time to be a producer, so when mi find di real talent dem mi send dem to mi son Bounty Killer and Downsound records.

Downsound records must also be respected locally for the work that they are doing with local music because Joe Bogdanovich cudda guh open supermarket like the rest of business people dem. Him neva haffi invest inna dancehall music,”

Ninja man acknowledged the fact that he will not be around forever, so he will be doing his part to ensure the continuity of dancehall music.  “I can’t be the number one deejay forever, so I am making sure I pass on what I have developed to the next generation.

Other veterans will also be included like Josie Wales, Ghost, Skatta Burrel, Jack Scorpio, some real people who know bout dancehall lyrically and instrumentally and so much more because judges will be rotated each week plus guest judges,”
