Hi everyone, Due to some unforeseen circumstances that came up in my personal life, 876Lover will be taking a short break. During this period I’ll be posting a minimum of one article per week. I will try to do more but at this time it […]
Happy New Year Everyone!!
I wish you a happy, adventure-filled, and prosperous year. I’ll be cliché and say you’re not getting any younger.
I hope you all enjoyed the holidays, please don’t scold me for being missing for the past 2 weeks, thereabout. My laptop is having personal issues right now, I will be back to my regular posting pattern as soon as possible though.
For 2016 I have a couple posts ready (in my head) for you all, giving you a little bit of my Jamaican Christmas holiday 🙂 We have a lot to look forward to as well, February is Reggae Month, and Carnival season begins in the middle of Feb. Plus there will always be events for me to cover!
I look forward to enjoying 2016 with you all.

Hey Everyone 🙂
You know I find this so cliché to say but it embodies Jamaica so much, so wah gwaan?
Knowing that our Independence Day is August 6th, my friends and I decided to go to Dubwise the night of the 5th, i.e. getting home late isn’t a problem because Holiday means sleeping in late.
We were Dubbing into Independence, reggae floating in the air, 53 years strong, and it wasn’t just reggae in the air. I love Dubwise because it’s not everyday you hear roots music blasting and being professionally mixed, just like any dance (party.) Hehe just Wednesdays 🙂 (more…)
