September 7, 2022 | By Supa Pea |

Jamaican born US based singer, rapper and record producer, Third World Don, is the headliner for Michael “Beatbopper” Hudgins album titled, “Certified Gold.”

According to Hudgins, “Third World Don gets the nod over two Ghanaians one being Epixode, who did a fine job on marketing Miungu Ya Muziki. That album secured four #1 spots on Amazon’s international charts, including, Best New Released Album.

“However, Third World Don’s name draws a lot of attention for several reasons. One is being his image of leadership. He is from the land of reggae music (Jamaica), which the great Bob Marley and other stars belongs.”

Born Michael Anthony Barnett, a former member of the music group Wizard Sleeve (2005-2012), is known for hit song Riverside (Let’s Go!) released by Datio Records in 2018. This single entered No. 2 on UK and Ireland charts and is noted for one of BBC Radio 1’s top 40 singles.

“Miungu Ya Muziki album missed out on billboard charting by a nose, if one is referring to horse-racing.  Now, I am not only concentrating on Billboard status for Certified but a Grammy nomination.”

The full slate of songs are:

  1. Stone Love( Kxng Izam, Blvk H3ro)
