Tekashi 6ix9ine

American rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine was released early Thursday afternoon into house arrest over fears that his chronic asthma puts him in the high-risk category of contracting Coronavirus.

“He’s out and he’s very happy to be released,” his defense attorney, Lance Lazzaro, told NBC News after Judge Paul A. Engelmayer granted his motion for compassionate release.

Citing safety concerns, Lazzaro declined to reveal where Tekashi would stay for the final four months of his two-year sentence.

The 23-year-old rapper, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, had been serving a 24-month sentence after pleading guilty to nine charges including conspiracy to murder and armed robbery at an upstate New York prison. He has already served 13 months of his two-year sentence, and was due to be released in August 2020.

The decision to release him to home confinement comes as New York City is battling the spread of the coronavirus, including in prisons and jails with at least 180 cases of coronavirus already confirmed at several jails in the City.

According to NME, 6ix9ine will serve his first four months of home incarceration with supervision, which will be enforced by GPS monitoring. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, he will have to stay at his residence unless he asks permission from the probation department to seek medical treatment or talk with his lawyer.

A Grammy Recognition Isn’t The Utmost For Me : Rocky Dawuni

Ghana’s UN Ambassador for Environment Africa and Internationally known Musician, Rocky Dawuni, in a latest interview on Zylofon TV says he would not use any recognition in music as his utmost priority.

Rocky Dawuni was nominated in 2015 with his 6th album “Beats Of Zion” for the Grammys (Best Reggae Album category) song with other music greats like Jah Cure, Morgan Heritage, just to name a few. He became the very first Ghanaian Musician to get his foot in the Grammys with an Album. The global icon however feels there’s more to all of that than just a nomination or award.

“I would rather put my passion and how far I am able to influence the world positively through my music ahead of any award or recognition. I respect and pay reverence to the Grammys and any award scheme that has recognized me but the passion and drive behind that craft stands above it all for me”, Rocky Dawuni explained.

“Champion Arise”, a latest video he released few weeks ago is the 4th music video he’s produced from his 7th album “Beats Of Zion” released in March 2019. Stream “Beats Of Zion” album here on the digital stores: https://rockydawuni.lnk.to/beatsalbum

Rocky Dawuni was on “Link Up”, a music show on Zylofon Television on Friday, June 5, 2020.
