Pink Boss and Clymaxx Take Round Two of Clash Performances on MKQ9

Season nine standout Unorthodox has made an early departure from Magnum Kings and Queen’s of Dancehall. A disappointed but upbeat Unorthodox, who was selected for the 2016 staging of the show after many attempts remains optimistic: “It’s a feeling that is natural, you ah go feel a way, but you nah go despair. Me still confident. It’s just that the crowd never too balance and hear what the I have to say. At the end of the day is who them like. So it set.”

Pink Boss, an obvious front runner in the talent series, won a very close battle against a short, sombre and gifted Unorthodox. It was a powerful and engaging clash which had judges and fans on edge.

On the flip side, a very angry Clymaxx went to war on her stage rival Tiffy T, a diminutive but strong performer who was decked in her own military gear. Clymaxx riddled lyrics that took the female clash. However, Tiffy T endured as the Producer’s Pick and will move on to Castle Blue’s next live show on Saturday, April 23.

“Me deliver what me think them (the audience) want to hear. Me just want to do me homework each week and just please everybody. In the streets, the people are rooting for me,” Clymaxx shares.

Clymaxx during her individual performance of War Time on the 50 Calibre beat later in the show - launched a lyrical assualt on Tequila, of Castle Red who mentioned Clymaxx‘s name while performing at D’Entrance the previous week.

The seventh live performance show in the Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall talent series takes place this Saturday, April 16 with performances from Castle Red contestants. Princesses Radyance and Tequila and Princes Blindz and Triple R are up for faceoff having received the lowest votes following their last performance.

Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall has become the most watched local programme in Jamaica. The show airs live on Saturday at 9:30pm and repeats on Tuesdays at 11:30pm and Thursdays at 11:00pm.
