THE BUZZ REPORT: TALLAWAH dishes showbiz news & previews from Kingston to Canada

Joining that ever-expanding list of moguls-in-the-making smartly aligning their star power with corporate Jamaica, dancehall hitmaker Konshens has inked a lucrative deal with Pepsi Jamaica to serve as their new brand ambassador. Given the entertainer's enormous fan-base and vast appeal, and the beverage company's global reach, it's a win-win for both parties, and Pepsi is very fortunate to have him.....

Quiet on set! Ziggy Marley and his kid son, Judah, spent some quality father-son time last week (in astronaut suits, no less!) filming scenes for the reggae icon's visual for "I Don't Wanna Live on Mars," the lead-off single from Ziggy's new album, Fly Rasta, which goes on sale in April. Apparently, the upcoming video has an outer-space setting, so can't wait to see it.....

Also on the horizon, Jimmy Cliff's latest clip, which on Tuesday brought the Grammy-winning legend to the streets of city Kingston -- and led to a chance encounter with Jah Cure. Cliff's "Won More", co-starring Olympians Usain Bolt and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, is due for release later this month.....

Following up her much-buzzed-about turn in Basil Dawkins' Thespy-winning My God Don't Wear Pajamas, Ruth HoShing (right) is already prepping her next starring role, a juicy stint in Oliver Samuels' Dolly House, which begins previews in Canada this Mother's Day weekend, with a solid four-hand cast also including Audrey Reid and Dennis Titus.....

And speaking of busy women, youth and culture minister, Lisa Hanna, and her team are shaking things up when it comes to recognizing the efforts of our future leaders via the annual Prime Minister's Youth Award for Excellence. Exciting details are to be made public next week about the upcoming event that has been shifted to April. Some 41 young people from across the island will be honoured this year for their inspiring work in the fields of academics, sports, arts and entertainment, journalism, and entrepreneurship, among other areas.
