Jamaican-born US- based fast-rising deejay, Nakash Diesel, believes the entertainment industry has short-changed veteran deejay Merciless who was buried last Saturday, September 17, 2022.
The deejay, born Leonard Bartley, was found dead at a guest house on Walker’s Avenue, off Beechwood Avenue in St. Andrew Jamaica on July 19, 2022
According to Nakash Diesel, “I am angry, miserable and upset how they dissed the veteran deejay Merciless. Yes, that was the diss of all dissing since 2022.
“Merciless deserves more respect. Boycotting a funeral, for one reason or another makes no sense.This action does not go down well, especially, for our youths, who are seeking guidance from their elders. We need to set good examples.
“Yes, my people, I am grieved. Bury the hatchet and put on a good show, so that the world have positive things to say. Right now people are blasting our entertainment fraternity, because of our selfishness.
“Although Merciless was not the man of the moment when he died, we had enough time to prepare for a memorable send-off. Songs like “Gal Dem Gizzada” and “Len Out Mi Mercy” became anthems not only in Jamaica, but elsewhere.”
Nakash Diesel, is now promoting his debut album, “Time In Hell.” The tracks are “Time In Hell,” “Ole Foot” “Extort and Rob,” “Anticipate” “Creme Dela Creme,” “Good So” ft. Star Lynx and George-P,” and “Bad Specie.”
The EP will be launched October 21, 2022.
