Controversial dancehall artiste Alkaline has been enjoying a successful run of shows during his first US club tour.

However, a shooting at a nightclub in Hartford, Connecticut has marred an otherwise successful trip.

Alkaline had performed at the West Indian Social Club in Hartford, Connecticut and was busy signing autographs when shots were fired.

The artiste’s management sought to clarify what happened at the show “Alkaline had no involvement with the shooting which took place in Hartford. The deejay gave his usual performance.
Upon exiting the club, shots were fired.

It is our understanding that the persons involved had some form of altercation prior to show night and took action,” Kereena Beckford, Alkaline’s manager, said.

Alkaline scored other major forwards for a number of other hit singles such as Hol Di Claffy Dem, Move

Mountains and One Inna Dem Head.

One of the high moments of the night was his 20 minute onstage collaboration with Mavado, which got the fans in a literal frenzy with both artistes exchanging songs, stretching across the lyrical categories of girls songs, gangsta songs and even motivational songs. Alkaline matched Mavado tune for tune and the fans absolutely loved it.

Alkaline showed his pulling power with females with another strong showing at the Loft Ballroom in Washington DC and then again at Hartford, Connecticut where there was another packed venue.

He will appear at upcoming shows in St Croix, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and Bronx, New York in January Alkaline will be releasing a new single called Ride on Me for DJ Frass Records, as well as the video for the single, Tek a Little Time.

“We will also be launching Alkaline’s website in 2015,” Ms. Beckford said.
