Imagine entertainers in business
With Alkaline expected to debut his clothing line at next month's Caribbean Fashion Week, I can’t help but think about the possibility of having more entertainers embracing the ideas of being entrepreneurs.
I love the business sense that these young, nowadays artistes possess. I see why someone of Alkaline's stature in dancehall is coming out with his own line. He has a huge following and he's capitalising on it. Kudos to him.
I do hope he also ventures into the bottled water industry. I can see it now; 'Alkaline Water — naturally alkalined.

Think about other artistes such as Popcaan. He would surely have his hands full with his 'Unruly' lifestyle. I could see the youngsters buying his 'Unruly Jeans'.
I-Octane, I presume, could sell vitamin water or some high-octane juices.
Ms Kitty and the Curvy Diva could make a killing by starting lingerie lines. Think about it now; Kitty’s panties woulda name, "Lalalalalalala".
And with incarcerated dancehall star Vybz Kartel somewhat out of the limelight, Savage could take up the cake soap business. However, I doubt he would sell even one. Don't ask me why.
MC Nuffy could sell newspapers, I mean literally walk and sell it, and Digicel could contract D'Angel. They would do well with her tag line 'Answer'.
