Bob Marley’s biopic moving full steam ahead as casting is now open.
Whoever is chosen to portray the late, great reggae legend Bob Marley will have big shoes to fill. The biopic, which has been mentioned for some time now, looks to be moving full steam ahead as the KBC Talent Management has officially begun scouting for an actor to portray the musician who is arguably one of the most influential artists of all time.
To be considered for the role, you must be Jamaican, male, and in your thirties. They are also looking for someone who is Black/Mixed race and who can speak Jamaican patois. This gives at least a little insight into what period of Marley’s life the silver screen film will be focusing on. The Marley’s have long protected the legacy of their father and have become known for being very selective about what they attach the name to.
Their skill has been so far unmatched in the reggae world as in 2018, it was estimated that he remains one of the highest-paid deceased celebrities. According to Forbes, the estate earned $23 million, and the family fortune is worth more than $100 million. Bob Marley’s estate is worth an estimated $130 million. A remarkable feat for an artist who was laid to rest in 1981, at just 36-years-old and still tops some reggae charts worldwide.

Jada Kingdom hands Popcaan his flowers on his 33rd birthday.
Popcaan, whose real name is Andre Hugh Sutherland, has worn many hats throughout his career, but Jada Kingdom has chosen to highlight his qualities as a motivator on his biggest of days. Popcaan has been hailed as the voice of unity over the past few years through his work with artists like Mavado, Beenie Man, and members of his own Unruly clan.
Though recent fallouts, such as the rumored beef with Unruly Cuz, have somewhat stained the image of the camp, Popcaan’s work with the likes of Dre. Island, Zamunda, Quada, and Bakersteez is proof of the deejay’s quest to develop the image and talents around him. It turns out that Jada Kingdom is also a benefactor of the Unruly boss’s talents.
Twinkle used Poppy’s birthday to reflect on how he aided her in overcoming anxiety and stage fright while performing on the first staging of Popcaan’s Unruly Fest in 2019. The event, which was held in the Eastern-most parish of Jamaica, also featured a host of Jamaican talents, both seasoned and new, as well as international superstars Drake and Tory Lanez.
“HAPPY EARTH STRONG TO DI UNRULY BOSS!” Jada wrote below a video of Popcaan assisting her during her performance of her hit tracks “Banana” and “Heavy!”
She continued, “I will never forget my first time on unruly fest (2019) when i really wanted to disappear caz anxiety & bipolar depression dida kill mi and YOU helped me finish my performance?…not even you knew what you were doing in that moment but i respect you for always supporting me from before i even started my career till now… naffy guh inna alla dat caz yu know di f_kin vibez! jus kno seh “Unruly Twinkle” luv yuh More life,blessings and prosperity mi G! #Unrulystate #OneEsyde.”

Shenseea is shutting down rumors that she has ditched Romeich Entertainment as she chases the American dream and her goal of becoming an American pop star.
The artiste set fire to the rumor mills that have been churning since she announced her new manager Wassim ‘Sal’ Slaiby managing her while Romeich Major, her former manager, was nowhere to be seen.
The “Blessed” singer, however, says that she’s maintaining her business relationship with Romeich Ent.
“We are still a work in progress. He (Slaiby) just came on board officially, but he’s been working behind the scenes. We’re trying to see how compatible we are with each other,” she said in an interview with the Jamaica Observer in an exclusive interview at Romeich Entertainment headquarters in Kingston yesterday.
Shenseea has been working and promoting her upcoming album, which is said to be a dancehall pop fusion. However, she says that Slaiby is not replacing Romeich.
“This is a joint team effort and I am very loyal. I will still be working closely with Romeich Entertainment, I have my old team and a new team,” she continued. “I feel like I’m starting over, but with experience, but on a bigger level.”
Shenseea has been seen networking with a number of artists overseas as she was in album production and promotion mode. However, she says that she doesn’t plan to leave Jamaica but will continue to travel and meet artists as she widens her international influence.
“I’m in love with my country. I love Jamaica and I can’t leave. So, for me, where I am right now in my career, I am back and forth,” she said.

Are Shenseea and Teejay beefing? The two former Romeich signee unfollowed each other on Instagram and throwing a lot of shade.
Sources told us that the fued in the camp has been silently brewing for weeks and grew more intense after Teejay abruptly left Romeich Entertainment camp in June after almost 3 years with the team. The Mobay singjay subsequently signed with Solid Agency in a move that some of his fans dubbed “smart.” His fans had steadily been citing that his former manager Romeich Major was only interested in furthering Shenseea‘s career leaving all others to the wayside.
While the ‘Uptop Boss’ maintained that there was no bad blood between him and Romeich in an interview with Suncity Radio, fans speculate that this might not necessarily be the truth.
The story has now gotten more interesting for fans following the latest update in a tweet from the dancehall princess. Shenseea, who just three days ago announced that she has signed with 2020 manager of the year, Wassim ‘Sal’ Slaiby, and thus leaving Romeich Entertainment.
Fans speculate that there may be more drama than the group is letting on, as was hinted in Shenseea’s post on Thursday (July 15).
“Artiste vex over me because me deh a RomeichEnt when dem come ya come see me! Joke dis! How me fi invite you a my house and you wa try kick ME out,” she wrote

Shenseea announces her new manager Wassim ‘Sal’ Slaiby after parting ways with Romeich Major.
The “Blessed” singer made the announcement on Monday evening as she officially confirmed what has been speculations for months now that she is no longer part of the Romeich Entertainment camp. In a post shared on Instagram, Shenseea introduced her new manager Wassim Slaiby.
#ShenYengz allow me to introduce my new manager…I’m happy to have one with such a dynamic character on my team!” she said before adding, “we’re about to unfold a new chapter! More hard work, more determination but with the same God…LET’s GO XO!”
The post was accompanied by several photos of Shenseea posing with her new manager along with international music producer Rvssian.
Shenseea was the first female artist to be signed by Romeich Entertainment in 2016 when the company’s owner and Shenseea’s former manager Romeich Major announced that the brand, which was based solely on event production, fashion, artist management, and booking, was now going into music production.
