December 19th marked the birthday of the esteemed Vendetta Boss, Alkaline. Hence, on Tuesday, the renowned dancehall deejay gracefully welcomed the milestone of turning 30 years old by sharing a photo of himself online.
It is not often that the Champion Boy artiste shares pictures of himself, being someone who leads a very private life when he is not attending shows and shooting music videos.
Fans were, therefore, happy to see the deejay in a new photo posted on his Instagram page. The picture features Alkaline posing in a Givenchy lemon print silk button-up shirt with black pants and sneakers, completing his look with a fashionable pair of Givenchy givcut geometric sunglasses, a watch, chains, rings, and more accessories.
The captionless photo amassed over 39,0000 likes within two hours of being shared on the social media platform. A swarm of fans also flooded the comments with birthday wishes, with one fan telling the deejay, “Happy 30 birthday to the greatest artist of all time🎭🐐 forever the dancehall goat.”
Additionally, members of the entertainment fraternity, including Tarrus Riley, 450, and Macka Diamond, gathered in the comments to wish him a happy birthday and “more life.”
Alkaline, legally named Earlan Bartley, rose to stardom with his hit single Move Mountains in 2014 shortly after his popular single 123 which was released in 2023. He is known for songs like Fleek, Things Take Time, ATM, Champion Boy, and Ride on Me (remix featuring Sean Kingston).
New Level Unluck, his debut album, peaked at number one on the Billboard Reggae Albums Chart after its release in 2016. In 2021, his second album, Top Prize, ranked No. 24 on the Billboard Reggae Albums Year-End chart and peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Reggae Charts.
