The Duane Stephenson competition is settled. Reggaemani congratulates the winner and gives standing ovations to Mr. Kent Eriksson from Nässjö in Sweden. He was among those who got both answers right, so the competition was decided by random draw.
Kent Eriksson wins a copy of Duane Stephenson’s sophomore album Black Gold released by VP Records.
Curious about the right answers? Yeah, of course you are. VP announced a merger deal with Greensleeves in January 2008 and Duane Stephenson started his career in the group To-Isis.
Thanks to all of you who submitted your answers.
A few months ago Duane Stephenson dropped his sophomore album Black Gold, mainly produced by his friend and mentor Dean Fraser. The album has a very soft feeling to it and will probably appeal to those who like Tarrus Riley.
The kind people at VP Records have provided me with a copy of Black Gold to give away.
To win a copy you just have to answer two questions:
1. When did labels VP and Greensleeves merge?
2. What was the name of the group in which Duane Stephenson started his career?
Send your answers to erik at reggaemani dot com. Among the people who answer both questions correctly I will draw a winner. The competition ends on Sunday November 14 and the winner will be presented next week.
And no, this judge cannot be bribed. And yes, it’s a physical CD, not mp3-files.
