Video: Miss Jamaica beauty Queen Yendi Phillipps releases Cardio Dance workout DVD


Miss Jamaica Universe 2010 Yendi Phillips has been dabbling in a couple ventures lately, including but not limited to Television host for a popular Jamaican morning program, making various local appearances and commercials and of course turning Mummy a year ago. (See behind-the-scenes from workout DVD below)

Posted on her Social Media pages was the following statement: “Here it is!!! Now available in Walmart in Canada is “IN THE DANCE FITNESS JAMAICA” hosted by yours truly!! Woop woop!!!”….this was followed by a pic of what seems to be the cover of the workout DVD. This is certainly up the former beauty Queen’s alley, as she is already a professionally trained dancer holding a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree in Dance.

Kudos to Miss Phillips on this new venture…wish her all the best! I am sure many are anticipating its availability in other parts of the world soon:)

CONGRATS to Yendi Phillips and Chino on the arrival of their baby girl

Congrats are in order we understand…according to the Jamaica Observer, Miss Jamaica Universe 2010 Yendi Phillips gave birth to a baby girl yesterday, she weighed 7lbs 11 ounces.

In April of this year, Yendi made a public announcement that she was having a baby, also revealing the father, which for some reason met many mixed reactions from the public.

Neway, the couple seem quite elated about their new relationship and baby and that is what matters:)

Congratulations to Yendi and Dancehall artiste Daniel ‘Chino’ McGregor, her child’s father, son of veteran Reggae artiste Freddie McGregor. This will be Chino’s second child and Yendi’s first.

..and for those overly concerned about her marital status, it has also been rumored that the couple are now engaged to be married…we have received no confirmation about this.

CONGRATS guys on your little pumpkin!!:)

CONGRATS to Dancehall artiste Busy Signal on the birth of his son Egypt

by Natalie Monique

International recording artiste Busy Signal and his girlfriend, Model/ Businesswoman Tunya Palmer welcomed their son Egypt-Knight Gordon into the world on July 10th, 2012. A source close to the couple says Egypt was delivered naturally (7lbs 7 ozs) at the Humber River Regional Hospital in Toronto, Canada at 9:12pm.

Busy Signal is currently facing extradition charges in the United States for leaving a pending Narcotics case behind in the United States ten years ago and returning to his island home Jamaica. He was recently arrested at the Norman Manley Airport in Kingston, Jamaica shortly after landing from Europe. After being refused bail in his first court hearing in Jamaica, the singer immediately opted to waive his extradition hearing rights and face the courts in the United States instead.

Busy’s KD Knight led legal team have warned that considering that the entertainer has opted to waive his hearing rights and never admitting that he was apart of a Drug dealing, the United States can only charge him absconding bail, and not the case which was pending at the time. Busy fans, legal team and the Music Fraternity worldwide are being hopeful that all works in his favor, in the defense that he made a bad decision when he was young and is now facing the repercussions.(Via White House Petition for his exoneration)

In a public statement (via FB) since being arrested, he had added, “For my family, you have stood by me through thick and thin and I know you will continue to do so. In my time away, I have made the necessary arrangements with my management team to have you taken care of until my return.” Busy is popular for Dancehall hits songs such as ‘Jamaica,’Do Airport’, ‘Nah go a Jail again’, ‘Pon di Edge’,’Night Shift’ and ‘One More Night.’
