Tony Matterhorn will not be returning to Reggae Sumfest Soundclash and he is blaming corporate Jamaica.
Tony Matterhorn has been one of the most iconic names in dancehall soundclash over the past three decades so anywhere there is a clash you can find the veteran sound system selector. Don’t expect to see him at Reggae Sumfest come next year after being crowned the runner-up this year. The disc jockey says his style of clash doesn’t fit well with the Sumfest format.
“Mi nuh business wid rules, and nobody can’t stop me from say anything me wah say when me a play,” Matterhorn said. “There won’t be another time because me nuh like corporate, and corporate nuh like me. When it come on to corporate, I will never see eye to eye with them because any chance they get to try put down Matterhorn or bring down Matterhorn, they will do it, intelligently, sneakingly.”
Tony Matterhorn added that the only reason why he returned to the event this year is because he won last year and wanted to defend his title. The sound selector was accused by fellow selector Ricky Trooper of violating a clear rule of no “indecent language” which he said he didn’t.
