Teflon ready to rock Europe!!

Monday, October 19, 2009

After being unable to travel outside of Jamaica for a year reggae artiste Teflon is now on his first European tour. The fire brand artiste left Jamaica on Wednesday morning to join Sizzla for seven weeks in Europe. Some of the countries which they will be performing are Holland, Sweden, Belgium, France, Spain, Italy, Slovania and Germany. After wrapping up the tour at the end of November TEFLON will leave for a two week stint in Africa.

TEFLON was recently freed of gun charges stemming from police raiding his St. Mary property in last August and allegedly finding an illegal firearm. Charges against the entertainer were dropped after the judged ruled that the police officers tampered with evidence and were inconsistent with their statements. TEFLON did not let his case deter his recording, he released songs such as Jailhouse Rock, No Rapist and Team with us all of which were in heavy rotation on local radio.

In February of this year TEFLON released his debut album MOTHERLESS CHILD on TAD’S International label, the album was a best seller on i-tunes peaking at #34 on i-tunes 100 best selling reggae albums. TEFLON also teamed up with Jamaica’s most prolific dancehall producer Stephen "Di Genius" McGregor to release a number of singles including Jah has been there which was in rotation on BBC 1Xtra (UK’s urban radio station).

TEFLON will return to Jamaica to do a number of shows during the christmas season. He will also be in the studio working on his sophomore album with extensive production from legendary producer Fattis Burrell. Jah answer prayers is the first single that will be released from the album, the song which features the remake of the music to Sizzla’s Taking Over is already in rotation on the radio and getting good reviews.
