Welcome to series two of #ToppleUncaged!
Every week, The Canary will be bringing you an innovative podcast for the media landscape; hosted by me, Steve Topple.
In a special episode, I caught up with a global dancehall superstar with a conscience: Jahmiel.
Mr Topple x Jahmiel
Jahmiel has been making serious waves on the music scene for over a decade. He’s clocked up countless worldwide hits with views and streams numbering in the tens of millions. With his blend of dancehall and afrobeat RnB, he had made name for himself with smash hits such as U Me Luv. But recently he finally released his debut album. Called Great Man it is a dazzling showcase of not only Jahmiel’s sublime voice, but his musical ingenuity. Because, far from being a straight dancehall record. Great Man is creative dynamite. It blends genres, from soul and dancehall to ambient RnB and afrobeat via trap, and also subject matters. The result is a truly unique sound and a wholly conscious experience.
So, I caught up with Jahmiel for the #ToppleUncaged podcast. We chatted about Great Man, his exceptionally unique style of music, the industry and more.

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
