So successful are they that as recent as last week, Never Change (From Mawning) held the numberone spot on the RETV charts and was at the number four spot on the Zip FM Dancehall line-up, while Protectedheld the number one spot on Zip FM’sReggae line-up.

In addition to all that, Chino’s landmark hit, Never Change(From Mawning) was hailed by London’sBBC 1XTRA as a dancehall equivalent to any ofMotown’s classic pieces andas “a breath of fresh air for Jamaican music”.

Chino, whose correct name is Daniel McGregor, says, “I have been travelling so much because of the tour and I haven’t been in Jamaica to actively promote the songs. So to hear that they are dominating so many charts, not only in Jamaica but also abroad, and the people are still requesting the songs, is such an honour to me. I never underestimate the power of good music and that’s what I always try to do, good music. The fans don’t deserve anything less than that. So I’m honoured and at the same time motivated to do more.”

Chino and the remainder of the Big Ship family return to Jamaica in mid-September.
