ON THE SCENE: Prince Harry + Rita Marley + Damian Marley + Konshens + Mr. Vegas + Nadine Sutherland + Natel + Nikki Z + Wayne Marshall

KISS ME, HARRY: March 6, Kingston. On location at the Rise Life Youth Project, Britain's Prince Harry greets Bob's widow, Rita Marley, with a royal chups on the hand. The prince, who visited Jamaica as part of his Diamond Jubilee tour in honour of the queen, ended his island mini-adventure on Thursday.

WALK THIS WAY: March 6, Paris. Supermodels Joan Smalls and Jamaica's own Jeneil Williams (right) hit their stride on the catwalk during Paris Fashion Week as they show off pieces by hip-hop impresario-cum-fashion designer Kanye West, who recently showed a ready-to-wear line at the Fall/Winter show inside the Halle Freyssinet.

ALL IN THE FAMILY: March 3, Florida. Marley brothers - Damian, Stephen and Julian - were in their element on the weekend at the Nine Mile Music Festival at the Virginia Key Beach, Key Biscayne, Miami. Last month, Stephen won the 2012 Grammy for Best Reggae Album.

KEEPING IT REAL: March 6, New York. As part of a whirlwind promotional tour in support of his new album, Mental Maintenance, ace deejay Konshens has been giving a series of radio and print interviews - and stage performances in the United States. Up next on the tour: a trip to sunny California.

SING IT OUT: March 6, St. Andrew. Entertainment vets Mr. Vegas and Nadine Sutherland duet at the recent launch for Mr. Vegas' new double album, Sweet Jamaica. The launch, held at Mango Ranch, also featured appearances by Luciano and Barrington Levy.

THE RIGHT NOTES: March 6, St. Andrew. Singing sensation Natel, who recently dropped a new mixtape, was among the performers thrilling patrons at Mr. Vegas' Sweet Jamaica album launch at Mango Ranch.

IT GIRL: March 5, New York. We haven't seen her in ages, but radio diva Nikki Z was head-to-toe gorgeous as she hosted the Mental Maintenance album release party for her friend Konshens at DROM earlier this week.

FOUR PLAY: March 2, Kingston. Last weekend's staging of Dutty Rock Fridays drew the party-loving likes of Voicemail's Craig Jackson, dancehall princess Raine Seville, hotshot Wayne Marshall, and producer/deejay Leftside to Club Riddim in New Kingston.
