Trinidadian Reggae Singer Marlon Asher Drops 3rd Album "Rebirth" Inspired by His Musical Journey

Native Trinidadian and Rastafarian Marlon Sobers aka Marlon Asher is one of the most sought after reggae artist in the country. The moniker “Asher” comes from the 12 tribes of Israel who represent December and the spirit of Christ.

Rebirth is Marlon Asher’s third studio album featuring some of the best Carribean artists. Asher continues to deliver an authentic reggae sound with a Trinidadian flavor.

Asher, a sought after artist, is a member of the collaboration "Life of A Ghetto Youth Chapter 2" that claimed the Number 4 spot on the Billboard Reggae Charts

The name of my album, Rebirth was inspired by Anthony B. We want to keep reggae music alive. I want to share my journey as an artist and the amazing, supportive people I have met around the world.”

— Marlon Asher aka the “Ganja Farmer” or “Ganja Cowboy”

ATLANTA, GA, USA, June 3, 2019 / — Reggae Superstar Marlon Asher's studio album, "Rebirth," the long-awaited follow up to his international mega hit "Ganja Farmer," garnering more than 15 million views and downloads, drops on June 1. "Rebirth" features Caribbean powerhouses Anthony B, Pressure Busspipe, Izac King, King David, and Meleku and American reggae bands Fluid Foundation and Slightly Stoopid. The album is executive produced by Ricardo "Rico" Vasconcellos and Vychalle "Kid" Singh of VAS Productions LLC.

""Rebirth" gives my fans a fresh edge to reggae by blending authentic reggae sounds with California roots, dance hall, and jazz," said Asher. "It was so much fun to record and I am very excited to release it. Some of the songs go back as far as two years because I wanted to get the right artist on the song."

One of his favorite songs is "Mama Say," which is based on the principles his mom instilled in him. "I hope her words of wisdom should have similar influence on others," he said. "She told me to make sacrifices in life, work hard and you will survive."

Asher said all the tracks were a true labor of love. "The album was made with Trinidad in mind and the love of my country and the challenges that my people face," he said. "I want the fans to walk away with a sense of appreciation for all people. It shows love, heartache, the struggle and God Almighty."

"Rebirth" offers 13 tracks that take you on my journey from my childhood to the brand about Ganja that I started not just for the Ganja farmer, but also for the everyday person that loves the ganja plant!," said Asher. "It's a way of life distinguished by the ready accessibility of happiness & love."

"The name of my album, "Rebirth," was inspired by Anthony B and we want to keep reggae music alive," said Asher who is also known as the “Ganja Farmer” or “Ganja Cowboy." "I also wanted to share my journey as an artist and the amazing, supportive people I have met around the world."

It may surprise you to know that one of the most celebrated reggae singers born as Marlon Sobers but best known as Marlon Asher started his music journey as a member of the Mount Ararat Spiritual Baptist Church Choir founded by his grandfather who was also the pastor and a power speaker. "At 7 years old, music has always been part of my life," said Asher, a native Trinidad, specifically Enterprise, Chaguanas that has grown from a small village to the largest borough and fastest-growing town in Trinidad and Tobago.

He later converted to Rastafari where he became a pioneer of Trinidadian Reggae and its movement. His passion grew for the reggae sound.

"I came from a loving two-parent household," said Asher. "My father Glenford Sobers, Sr. worked on a farm in Canada and my mother took great care of us." Asher's dad was a self-taught classical opera singer and an inventor of the quadrophonic steel drum.

"My father traveled back and forth from Canada and when he would return, he would bring back a musical instrument from a guitar, keyboards, bass guitar, harmonica to synthesizer, drums, and a tambourine," recalled Asher. "My brother, Glenford, Jr., learned to play all the instruments and I sang while he played."

From time to time Asher would accompany his dad to Canada to work at the tobacco farm. "I was allergic to tobacco and had to quit," he said. "I went back to working in carpentry and masonry until one day one of my co-workers heard me sing and encouraged me to pursue it." He built homes and commercial buildings in the day and sang at night. "It was a way to pay bills," he said.

One night, he was performing at a local club. "Music Agents Jeron Woodruffe and his sister Anjulet Woodruffe discovered me, that break eventually took me all around the world," said Asher. "While working on a building, I received a phone call from New York to fly there to perform on stage at a nightclub. New York was a chance to do something for myself. It was my first time in the States and I stayed for 3 years performing."

As his career progressed he released hit singles including “Fit & Strong,” “Love Of Jah," “Shorty” and “Ganja Cowboy." “The Ganja Farmer” sparked controversy in his country, due to his pro cannabis lyrics.

His first album was "Illusions," which was recorded in Atlanta, GA and included a few tracks produced by Don Corleon, a Jamaican record producer, songwriter, and mixer, "Psalm 35" and "Save Their Souls." Corleon has worked with artists, such as, Migos, Sean Paul, Sizzla, Keyshia Cole, Rihanna, Shaggy, Migos, Trinidadian-born Nicki Minaj, and more. Following that album, Asher collaborated on "Life of A Ghetto Youth Chapter 1," under VAS Productions LLC.

The intention behind, "Life of A Ghetto Youth," was to show the youth in the Caribbean what unity looks like and be positive role models. "All of us collectively decided to continue our mission of spreading love and happiness; therefore, "Life of A Ghetto Youth Chapter 2" was released in May 2019," said Asher. "We donated money from Chapter 1 to families affected by the struggles in Trinidad and will do the same with some of the proceeds from "Life of A Ghetto Youth Chapter 2." The "Life of A Ghetto Youth" projects were executive produced by VAS Productions LLC.

"Rebirth" is available on all digital platforms including iTunes, Amazon, and GooglePlay.

Decentralized Exchange Newdex’s Original Intention of Foundation: Users’ Assets, Security First

NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, June 2, 2019 / — Recently, Newdex(, the world's largest EOS based Decentralized Exchange, announced that it has completed the deployment of smart contract “matching and settlement on chain” and has submitted to SlowMist for security audit.

The audit content of smart contract covers 14 aspects including overflow audit, jurisdiction red paper audit, security design audit, performance optimization audit, and multi-level design audit.

Why does Newdex spend a lot of time, expenses, and energy investing in the security audit of smart contract?

Security Incidents Triggered by Smart Contract, Security Is very Important!

Although Decentralized Exchanges are extremely transparent in terms of asset trusteeship, there may be security risks in any part.Exchange seems to be a huge bank to hackers, and hackers can explore the invading loops from different angles every day.
In 2016, the smart contract of TheDAO project was attacked, and ETH equivalent to about $60 million was stolen. The reason is that there is a splitDAO function in the smart contract written by the DAO. The hacker utilized the bug of this function to separate the DAO asset from the asset pool of the DAO project continuously and transfer it to the subsidiary DAO established by the hacker.

Therefore, Newdex is very careful about the deployment of smart contract “matching and settlement on chain”. Smart contract is executed on chain, so it will be implemented in trading pairs with less trading volume initially.

When the order is matched completely on chain, Newdex becomes the platform that carry out the decentralized model. Whether the order or the funds are on the EOS public chain,which it is a transparent Exchange without a doubt.

Many users think that the establishment of Newdex is not a good time to catch up with the bear market. But from the perspective of decentralization, it is not too late to enter the market at any time.

Any plastic surgery should be considered carefully. If you are thinking about it, read the new article by Dr. Tansar Mir, with reasons to get it done, or not.

Tansar Mir, MD – Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery (N/A:N/A)

Plastic surgery is one of those procedures that can have a major impact on a person’s life. However, it is good to consider the pros and cons of any procedure before opting to go under the knife”

— Dr. Tansar Mir, Plastic Surgeon in New York

NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, June 2, 2019 / — We live in an age where most of us have thought of getting a cosmetic procedure done at least once. As appealing as it may sound, and judging by its continually increasing popularity, one may get inspired to finally get that nose job done, or get those lips looking plumper. However, like everything else, plastic surgery has its pros and cons, and these pros and cons are something that people need to know before they decide to have cosmetic work done on their bodies.

Read the new information article on this subject by Tansar Mir, MD, available on his blog at

Before we discuss anything any further, however, it is important first to understand what plastic surgery actually is. Plastic surgery is any reconstructive procedure of the bone, muscle, tissue, or skin that is usually performed to enhance function. It can also be done to improve or complement certain features of a person’s body. Reconstructive procedures that are most popular these days are scar repair, tumor removal, and breast reduction and cosmetic surgery.

Moving on, let’s weigh up the advantages and disadvantages that these procedures bring to the table.

The Pros and Cons

1. Time Matters

What the majority of people worry about the most is the time it all takes. We are talking about the time that will be invested from the beginning – from the very start to the amount of time it will take to heal. While most procedures take no longer than a couple of hours, the amount of time that actually goes into the planning, consideration, strategy, and recovery is far more than what the surgery itself takes to be performed. The fact is that cosmetic surgery is a long, time-consuming process. Out of all the aforementioned steps, it is the recovery phase that takes the longest. Once the surgery has been performed, you still have to keep on coming back in for regular checkups to monitor how you are healing. Therefore, if you are someone who is very busy and cannot invest long hours of his or her day, you might want to reconsider this.

Most people who consider getting reconstructive work done opt for non-surgical procedures over it because of the time aspect. It can be particularly difficult for patients with families, demanding careers, and busy schedules to dedicate days, and at times, even weeks for recovering after a surgical procedure.

However, the recovery time, even though not avoidable completely, can be minimized to an extent. It can be negotiated to better suit the needs and schedule of the patient. Using vacation days or holidays and avoiding getting a procedure done in busy seasons can help incorporate the patient’s recovery into their packed schedules.

2. Breaking the Bank

The finances are another important aspect of plastic surgery. The cost of a procedure heavily depends on the type of surgery being performed. For instance, bone and muscle reconstruction is pricier than getting lip fillers. What can be ascertained, however, is that all these procedures definitely cost quite a bit.

It is worth noting here that going to less popular practices or surgeons without licenses will not actually save you money. Most of the times procedures carried out by unlicensed practitioners cost much more in corrective surgeries than what they would have initially if an expert did them.

3. Regaining Self –Confidence

Most people get plastic surgery done simply because they don’t like the way they look or aren’t confident in their bodies. With rhinoplasty and lip fillers being the most sought-after procedures, it has been stated by numerous patients that they just want their features to look better. Plastic surgery has definitely shown to boost a person’s self-confidence.

4. Will It Last?

One of the most frequently asked questions is if these procedures last and if they do, for how long. Now, what needs to be understood here is that the lasting time differs for each procedure. Some are permanent, some are semi-permanent, and others do not last longer than a few months. It really just depends on the procedure and the material being used. What needs to be considered here is whether the amount of time and money that you invest in opting to have these procedures done is worth the end product. If so, then go for it!

Plastic surgery is one of those procedures that can have a major impact on a person’s life. From helping them feel good in their own skin to improving their confidence, it can be a real game changer for people. However, it is always good to consider the pros and cons of any procedure before opting to go under the knife. We hope we have helped you in your decision-making process with regards to whether you get that surgery done or not.
