After being guided for several years by Davey Scott, more popularly known as Tall Boss, the operations of Portmore-based sound system Di Unit have now been handed over to a new leader.
Badda Bling, whose birth name is Matthew Mothersill, is a senior DJ on the sound system and the new man in charge.
He told THE STAR that although his new role will be challenging, he was looking forward to the journey ahead and will be taking on the new responsibilities in addition to being a DJ.
“Taking on the roles of manager and DJ for the sound, added to having a radio show is no easy feat, but I am up for the challenge,” he said, pointing out that the group’s mission takes priority no matter who is at the head. “Coupled with the fact that everyone in the team understands what we are aiming to achieve, we always strive to work as a cohesive unit to achieve said goals.”
Following news of Tall Boss’ arrest earlier this month, there have been questions about who would take up management of the popular sound.
Though still in its formative years, the five-man sound system boasts an impressive array of accolades, including several awards, being featured on all the top-tier social events locally, including Dream Weekend, BritJam and Reggae Sumfest, and numerous international appearances, including an African debut last year with Demarco.
With a full roster of activities for the Easter/summer holidays, Badda Bling said fans can catch them in action over the Easter holiday season at several events.
The group has also already been booked for premier summer events, Reggae Sumfest and Dream Weekend.
