Dancehall star Dexta Daps is claiming he has experienced a major act of racism in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
In a video posted on Instagram, the “WiFi” singer stands at the entrance of Rock Bar Restaurant in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where he mentions that he has been on the receiving end of a terrible act of racism at the enterprise. “Mi ano f**kery person. But mi affi do dis. Mi jus see the biggest racist act inna my life. Mi never see another racist act so big yet inna mi life,” Dexta Daps said.
The 35-year-old singer is never really one to dwell on disturbing social issues. His carefree, euphoric personality, along with his erotic lyrics and behaviors with women, make him famous and loved among the community of women locally and internationally.
“I DNT PUT PPL DOWN NOR TALK BAD ABT THEM…. IN ALL HONESTY, I WOULD MUCH RATHER SAY NOTHING…. BUT SOMETIMES WEN U DNT SAY ANYTHING ABT THE THINGS THAT TRULY MATTER, THE FOOLISHNESS DNT STOP,” Dexta Daps wrote in the caption.
While noting his usual fondness of Rock Bar, the dancehall singer went on to call out the establishment, insinuating that the racist act was carried out by a staff member.
“#ROCKBAR IS A NICE SPOT THAT I WOULD’VE RECOMMENDED TO ANY1…. BUT AS OF YEST, DEM GET BENCHHHHH….. CLEAN UP Y’ALL RACIST STAFF BLOOD… UNTIL THEN, IM BLACK N PROUD, SO F#CK Y’ALL STR8 UPPPP.”
Dexta Daps, whose real name is Louis Grandison, ended his rant by swearing never to visit the beachside spot again. The “No Underwear” did not provide the details on what actually went down but promised to give more details soon.
Dexta Daps is going international as his latest hit, “Call Me If,” has been remixed featuring Tory Lanez and Louie Culture. The “Naked” singer announced on his Instagram account on Thursday that he would be dropping the song at 9:00 PM.
The song shows Dexta Daps performing the opening segment of the song as he acknowledges the female actress’s frustration with her man, and he advises her, “the likkle man na F*** yuh good, better yuh f*** somebody else, call me if…”
Tory Lanez appears with his usual sexy style as he delivers a fire verse handling patois with ease only few outsiders can achieve. The video shows all three of the artists on the remix in the same room as they perform for the camera. Details about the collaboration and planning for the song have not been released, but the “Vent” singer directed fans to his website.
Known as the ladies’ man, Dexta Daps, whose real name is Louis Grandison, has made a name for himself in dancehall in a niche with less competition as he consistently delivers sexy R&B flavored dancehall ballads that are especially the favorite of his female fans across the Caribbean and the world.
His latest album Vent is his second released in 2020, which features “Call Me If” as the number one song on the album. On the track, Dexta Daps sampled a classic by Louie Culture- his 1994 hit song “Gangalee,” which references the song title as part of Daps’ chorus in “Call Me If.”
Dexta Daps released his first album in 2017, Intro, which featured the song that cemented his talents with the ladies, “Bring It to the Owna,” that featured himself and Lady Ice which sent tongues wagging due to the sexy and suggestive content of the video.
His smooth and sexy style features narratives about cheating or other men falling short, and so Dexta Daps offers his skills, make up his main lyrics, but no matter how many songs he writes or sings, the ladies keep coming back for more!
Meanwhile, many fans of the crooner view his latest collaboration with Tory Lanez as the beginning of his cross-over into the hip hop market. While he does have a few international collaborations with the likes of rapper M.I.A and Blakkman, his collaboration with Lanez could mean a successful transition to Hip Hop. Especially on a platform such as Lanez, who, despite his pending court case, has remained one of the most sought after artists in the genre by music lovers.
Lanez’s latest album, an R&B capsule Playboy immediately went No. 1 on major streaming services after being released earlier this month which shows his relevance to good music is still competitive despite the album not being placed on the front page of DSPs, as alleged by the artist who vented about the alleged suppression of his music. No doubt this could be due to the bad publicity that he has received following the ongoing case with Megan Thee Stallion that continues to cast a shadow over his career.
Despite the initial perceived damage to Tory Lanez’s career, his music is still loved and consumed by millions of fans. Dexta Daps might be able to cross over into Lanez’s territory, and he will be received by Daps’ millions of loyals fans or rather Daps’ loyal female fans who follow and support him religiously.
“Weak to You” singer Dexta Daps has just dropped a brand new track titled “WIFI” off the deluxe version of his Vent album, now available.
The song features Daps in his element singing melodic lines like, “Girl mi just love how mi and yuh connect like wifi. Yuh secret safe with me, yuh freak yuh nuh try hide. Da p$&#y deh fit fi mi, mi sure seh a my size.” The track is signature Dexta Daps, given to you in the raunchiest of ways possible or staying true to his core female audience. With just a few days to go until Valentine’s Day, we are sure this one will be a hot number for the ladies to vibe to. The Seaview Gardens native has proven once again that he has the formula for making ladies anthems.
Fans have already taken to social media to share their reaction to the new song while some folks expressed that their neighbors and just about anyone in their immediate circle should know the lyrics of the track. Earlier this week, Dexta Daps teased snippets of the song on IG, as he generate an early buzz around the deluxe version of Vet. Fans can now access “WIFI” on all major digital platforms as well as on his website.
Vent is Dexta Daps’ second album following 2017 project Intro. His debut album created quite a stir on social media, with a steamy short film that left little to the imagination. For now, the Drumma Boy-produced track is without a music video, which is something we are sure the fans will be requesting.
[Verse 1] Lover of mine How have you been? ‘Cause it’s been a while since the summer began Where did it go? Done in a flash Something about my mind keeps bringing me back To us Back to us ‘Cause I feel like someone else All by myself All by myself
[Verse 2] Pulling out my swisher Looking at your picture ‘Cause that broken summer’s hanging over me Drowning in the sunshine Where I spend a long time Thinking girl, you got the best of me
[Verse 3] Lover of mine What would it take? Could I walk the miles off of all our mistakes? I’m getting tired Too far away But I keep on trying and it’s taking me back To us Back to us ‘Cause I feel like someone else All by myself All by myself
Without discounting the performance from other artists, Mavado had arguably the best performance at Reggae Sumfest 2017.
Some of the highlights from the Gully Gad’s set was when he dissed Popcaan and also gave his longtime dancehall nemesis Vybz Kartel a shout-out. Mavado’s energetic set was laced with several of his hits from the beginning of his career in the mid-2000s to his more current ones like his Popcaan diss record “Beat and Teach” and “Dem Run Eeen.” “Diss them the real way and them can’t defend it,” Vado said.
Mavado also performed with Alkaline during the Vendetta boss set. A number of other big names also put on a good show in front a strong turnout. Dexta Daps, Spice, Alkaline, Aidonia, Bounty Killer, Tommy Lee Sparta all put on a good show way into the early morning on Saturday. Despite some previous issues with Masicka’s performance time, the Genahsyde deejay still took the stage and put on a show for his fans.
