Ini Kamoze
February 03, 2014 01:04AM
I'm wondering if Ini Kamozi will be added to the Sly and Robbie showcase this year? With Sly and Robbie already scheduled to play at multiple festivals this year, Ini Kamozi is an artist that one would think would be a perfect addition, but he's nowhere to be seen (but who knows what's the story there).

I think that this would be the perfect opportunity to bring Ini Kamozi to this years' festival, though, and here's why:

Last year, we saw Protoje perform (and he even mentions Kamozi in the song) "Kingston Be Wise", which takes a lot of Kamozi's "England Be Nice". We saw Damien Marley perform "Welcome To Jamrock", which takes the rhythm from Kamozi's "World A Reggae". Lately, Kamozi has gotten a lot of publicity from Protoje's big hit. So, again, this would appear to be the perfect time to bring him to this festival.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed, and hoping that somebody calls a taxi for me, and forwards Ini Kamozi! Seeing songs live like "World A Reggae", "Hail Mi Idren", etc., would be a dream come true.

I tried booking him for a show a while back and he wants lots of $$$$. More than the Marleys I believe. It would be nice to see him, but I highly doubt he would humble himself for this show.

Big up Ras Danny! I hope all has been well with you!

I'm holding out hope, but after reading Danny Crucial's response, I probably shouldn't hold my breath as far as Ini Kamoze performing this year...

Ah, I see. That's sort of what I was worried about, I know that some artists want a lot of $$$$$. Whether that's holding him back from performing this year or other years, who knows. I just hope that he performs one year and this year would be the perfect year...

I do remember seeing Ini Kamoze along with Half Pint and Yellowman in a Sly & Robbie Showcase some years back. Not sure why Kamoze's price would've gone up so much, exc. maybe for the use of his tune in "Welcome to Jamrock".

I don't know about the business of that cut in particular but in general, when a sample is cleared there's 2 sets of rights. One is the sound-recording rights which goes to whoever owns the copyright of the master recording used (usually the record label). The other, the publishign rights, is based on who controls the authorship rights. So assuming (and again this is all assumption since I know nothing about the track's ownership) Sly & Robbie lthe label, they would get paid for that right. As the writers of the original song sampled - Ini, Sly Dunbar, and Robbie Shakespeare would be paid for those clearances as well.

Sample clearance is a really tricky business
