KINSTON 10, Jamaica - Feb. 17, 2014 - PRLog -- February 17 2014 - is exactly one year since 25 year old international reggae/dancehall artist Orisha Sound and producer Shel-K were held at the gunpoint in Half Way Tree area in Kingston Jamaica. The two were getting ready to shoot a music video for a song “Embrace it” – Orisha Sound feat Sizzla Kalonji.
