Dancehall-reggae artiste Rickey Teetz has emerged as one of the top dancehall prospects in the industry in 2014.

He recently changed his image, choosing to colour his hair blonde, and he has begun sporting more flamboyant dancehall fashions.

"The people dem love the new image that mi give them on Sumfest, is just a difference, because people see how my music a grow, and they are amazed by the transformation. Is like dem say 'mi ready fi the road now, Rickey Teetz ready hi him spot'. The fans dem see me as a real artiste now," he said.

Over the past week, he made a much talked about appearance on CVM TV's 'Onstage' and he was featured on IRIE FM's 'The Buzz', two of Jamaica's premier entertainment programmes.

"The feedback for 'Onstage' has been great, much respect to Winford Williams, and to the presenters of 'The Buzz' for the opportunity to be on the show, I got a lot of calls when I was on IRIE," Rickey Teetz said.

Recently, he landed the biggest gig of his career and thrilled the crowd during Dancehall Night during this year's Reggae Sumfest showcase at Catherine Hall. Rickey Teetz has carved out a niche for himself in the dancehall with his high-impact songs such as the socially conscious 'Lighters Up'. He also has songs that cater to the seamier side of life such as the girls' favourite, '630 Walk' and the high-energy anthem, 'Tip Yuh' which has generated over 400,000 spins on youtube.

The songs that have endured him to the masses are the socially conscious singles like 'Poverty Life', '1000 Blocks' and radio-friendly 'Lighters Up' which has also done well in the Caribbean.

"One of my most successful songs is 'Lighters Up', and the video itself, because of its message and plot, was a big hit with dancehall fans. It has been breaking barriers and climbing various charts," he said.
