"King Ujah – Souljah of the Most High"

King Ujah – Souljah of the Most High

Since the release of his highly anticipated sophomore album entitled “Glorify The King”, King Ujah has been in high demand with CD’s selling out in Toronto, and requests for interviews in the U.K. and the US. “I just returned from Virginia where I did several interviews, and the feedback has been really positive!” says King Ujah.
On the heels of heavy CD promotion, King Ujah’s live performance is in high demand as he takes the stage at Toronto’s prestigious Jamaica Day Festival on Saturday July 26th, the Links Pic-Nic Festival in Kitchener, Waterloo on August 17th, and the Ottawa Reggae Festival on August 23rd, 2008.
King Ujah, known as the Souljah of the Most High, follows up his critically acclaimed premiere album, "Beauty for Ashes".
Standing firm in his commitment to praising the Most High, "Glorify the King" is a 13-track disc, which focuses on the goodness and beauty of being in the presence of the Most High, Love for a woman, loyalty of friends, and a plead for an end to violence.
In the song “Hustla / For My Homies” King Ujah hails up the friends who have been loyal in the struggle, and wouldn’t think of switching or betraying that loyalty. For the ladies, the King shares his sensitive side with the track “Crazy” and the Rockaz style song “Sugar”. Both tracks celebrate the beauty of a woman, and a mans desire to be faithful to her and her alone; speaking of Love and appreciation for the woman, King Ujah puts the Queens on high in both chunes. Not shying away from issues affecting society, “Time to Have Some Fun / Put Down the Gun” speaks directly to the youths and the shottas with a request to put down the gun so we as a society can go back to having fun, and living life the way the almighty intended.
The most important element to this album, is King Ujah’s commitment to praising and glorifying the Most High. Tracks such as “Praises to My King” and “Give Thanks to The Most High” are heartfelt songs which are lyrically uplifting and connect on a spiritual level with all who have thanks and praise in their heart for the almighty.
King Ujah continues to receive endorsements from Radio Jocks such as Carrie Mullings from 105.5 FM's 'Rebel Vibes', who says this artist is a "promising artist with a style of his own". Patrick Roots from 89.5FM’s Reggae Riddim says “Half of the story as not been told; these words best describes this artist. Nuff nuff more to come from Ujah!” Natty B, owner of Tre-Jah-Isle Records and Gifts says: Ujah gets non stop play and endorsement! Talented Youth! These quotes further confirm the King’s recent win at the Canadian Reggae Music Awards for Top Dancehall Style DJ for 2007.
King Ujah made his debut at the age of eight when he performed in school functions. The command of his performance, and his stage presence makes him a memorable artist as he has graced stages such as Walter Fletcher's Beach, Reggae Sumfest, Jamaica Day (in Toronto), Irie Festival and the Calgary Reggae Festival. King Ujah has shared the stage with top artists such as Luciano, Capleton and Morgan Heritage to name a few, and looks forward to sharing the stage and studio with many more!

"Beauty for Ashes"

Lionel Gayle - Toronto

Like most roots reggae artists, King Ujah is one man fighting against the injustice of Babylon. And the contents of "Beauty for Ashes", his philosophical weapon, aptly reflects his thought process. On the opening track, "Shining Light", he presents himself as a worthy soul to join ranks with Moses and other great men in Zion where he will "link with the lion". He means Jah. Then on the other cut, "Roots Girl", he's back to earth as he yearns for "a roots girl in my life" to be his wife. A divine empress who is fertile, who can cook his tofu and share his bed, he says. If that sounds a tad like conflict of interest, check the title track, "Beauty for Ashes", on which Ujah, with much forcefulness, predicts, or outlines, Jah's punishment for the wicked. "Dem gonna get lightning for water, dem gonna get thunder for music, dem gonna get fire for dem ungodliness," he sings.

After other songs such as, "Half The Story", "Remember Me", Ujah closes the 13-track album with "Nothing Can Stop Us". The CD is an appropriate vehicle through which this grassroot man gets the chance to rant and rave and predicts doom and gloom, and highlights the failure of mankind. From a cultural viewpoint, "Beauty For Ashes", on the King Ujah Record Label, is an interesting album.

"Highest Level Phase 1"

Reggae Exclusive Magazine - by Theresa Anderson

If you weren't at the New Bambu by the Lake on May 24, 2003, you missed your chance to reach the HIGHEST LEVEL.

King Ujah kicked off the first of many phazes of the Highest Level. Talented artists included Spida & Lloyd Wedderburn (The Duo), they know how to get the party poppin'. Mikhal Fury who can soften the coldest of hearts with his sweet fury of words. Michael Garrick with his own special rendition of the past we so love. Donna Makeda, and Chester Miller also put on amazing performances. The second set started with Blessed. This Juno winner has the gift of giving and he was definitely receiving the love from all the people in the house.

Now that set got off to a late start, but the people were lovin every minute of it. Finally, the featured artist was introduced by Jonathan Shaw of Flow 93.5 FM and Ron Nelson of CKLN 88.1 FM. King Ujah had everyone in the house lovin the vibes that he set off as only a King can do. Everyone needed to know about the Highest Level Phaze 1 and how it came to be. I asked the one person who would have the answer, King Ujah.

"Why the Highest Level Phase 1??"

"Well, highest Level Phaze 1 got this name because in Canada we have alot of great artists and these artists never get a chance to rise. They are sabotaged by inside and outside promoters because these promoters get their "friends" to perform at a lesser cost, which leaves the professional artists overlooked and not put on shows. Highest Level Phaze 1 was created for the artist that has talent. If you are a tough upcoming artist, or a veteran, then yes, you will have a place with the Highest Level Phaze 1 with plenty of stages to come. We are not here to overlook anyone, we want every serious artist to have their time, and the Highest Level gives you YOUR TIME!"

"Where would you like this to go? How far??"

"Like I've always said, I'm here to do Jah works, so I would like to see the Highest Level reach the four corners of the earth. To let all the people know that Canada has the toughest artists and we can match up to all other tough artists around the world." Eventually, King Ujah would like the HIghest Level Phaze 1 to be not only the place to showcase the toughest artists, but also the place to receive Awards in other areas of the music business. Peace.

"King Ujah for Schoolers Showdown"

The Western Mirror - November 18, 1992

One of the entertainers who the audience is going to love very much is dee-jay Juckie Junior when he appears at "Schoolers Showdown" next week Saturday at Walter Fletcher Beach. The first time this writer saw Juckie Junior perform was at Cornwall Beach late last year. Some young American girls who were in the audience suddenly went wild when Juckie appeared on stage as a side kick to singer Hindu. Before Juckie could complete his final piece, the girls literally pulled him away and soon carted him off across the road to the Fantasy Resort.

Juckie was in the news lately after he was bitten by dogs at the last Reggae Sunsplash. He made all the headlines of the Major papers in Jamaica and as a dee-jay many people were looking for a record from him concerning his dilemma. Juckie says that this record is now ready and it will be his trump card for "Schoolers Showdown".

Appearing with Juckie Junior are Chiney Eye, Grip Wrench, Little Mice, Major Lloyd, Junior Reid, Tony Rebel, and Capleton. They will be backed by the Indika Band. Mcs are Julia Meikle of Radio Waves And RJR's Richie "B" Burgess.

"There are many things going on in the world and I would like to contribute in opening other people's eyes through music" These are the words of Ukel "Juckie Junior" Brown, one of Montego Bay's upcoming deejays.

"I want my stardom to reach the heights of the great Bob Marley and allow me to bring truly cultural reggae music to the four corners of the earth. Like many other people, life was not always easy for him. After leaving the Maldon Secondary School he got into trouble and ended up in reform school. Although his years at the reform school were rough, they were a blessing in disguise as it was there that he gained a lot of experience in the music business.

"During my time in reform school I was the lead singer in a folk and cultural group" he said. "The senior officer at the time Mr. Higgins saw my potential and arranged for me to take part in a number of events which won me much needed acclaim" he said. "Jucckie Junior" said in representing his institution he performed at the Cabil Theatre in St. Ann and entered a deejay contest at the Ranny Williams Entertainment Center in Kingston. He placed 3rd from a field of 17 contestants.

He said his most memorable show was when he performed alongside top entertainers as Ninjaman (who was called Double Ugly at the time) and Rappa Robert and Tippa Lee.
He released his first song "Freedom Blues" a month ago which is based on the life of the great Nelson Mandela. He said he prefers to sing songs with a message like his idol, Bob Marley. "The slackness I don't like it. People nowadays want to enjoy themselves when listening to music", he said. Juckie Junior is now working on getting enough recognition before going into the studio. He said that each new song will be done with the hope of winning him favour among music critics as well as to increase his number of fans.

Presently he performs at Cornwall Beach, one of Montego Bay's hottest entertainment spots. He gained a push into the lime light when he appeared on the show "Schoolers" at Mt. Alvernia High School, November last year. Juckie Junior, who craves for international recognition, said thatthe only way one can make it is through hard work and dedication.

He described the music business today as being competitive but he would like to advise those who will come after him to be persistent and sggressive, but not corrupt in their quest to fame. - THE STAR - STARLITE - APRIL 23, 1992
