  Fresh from an electrifying performance at Sumfest’s beach party, Jamaica’s king of parody and renowned resident Zip Jock, ZJ Bambino, whose real name is Orrett Hart Jr. is making strides in 2012.
He proved that he is one of Jamaica’s most respected emcees when he was voted Selector of the Year at the Youth View Awards in February. When asked how he felt, Bambino said, “It is a great feeling! Especially knowing that the youth are listening I know I can be more of a positive influence on them.”
Shortly after receiving his award, Bambino took his turntables to Trinidad carnival for the third consecutive year.  While there, he reveled in the festivities as he deejayed and played at the varying events including Carnival Monday and Tuesday on the Island People Truck, an experience which was made possible by sponsors Tara Couriers and FX Trader.
Bambino is also slated to play at various parties during the Epic ATI Super All-inclusive series over Emancipation Weekend.  The ZJ will be spinning at NAKED on Friday, August 3rd, COLOURS on Saturday, August 4th, and STAGES on August 5th. He promises that fans can expect to hear something different complete with the usual “fun” entertainment he is known for providing.
            Despite his intense workload, Bambino has also found a way to give back to society. He has done so through Youth of the World (YOW), which was co-founded by manager, Delroy Escoffery. Albeit in its fledgling stage, it is expected to take flight this summer as it was created to sponsor children who cannot afford the necessary school supplies for the upcoming school year. Bambino and Mr. Escoffery have teamed up with corporate Jamaica to bring this plan to fruition.
             In response to how he has managed to maintain the balance between what appears to be a hectic work schedule and his family life, the ZJ humbly declared he, “just have to work it.”  
He also agreed that he has an understanding family and this has undoubtedly given him the opportunity to do what he loves best and what fans loves most about him… music. Therefore, fans can rest assured that Bambino is not likely to go off key anytime soon. Stay tuned, he will be hosting the biggest TV show later this year!
