Quick Cook makes MTV's 'Ridiculousness'

... After Japanese girl almost kills him while dancing

CURTIS CAMPBELL, STAR Writer

Dancehall artiste/intro man Quick Cook, is grateful that his flopped dance routine was featured on MTV's comedy show 'Ridiculousness' recently.

The artiste, while dancing with a female Japanese patron onstage during a local show, lost his balance and fell off the stage. The video of the fall quickly gained attention on social network and was funny enough to be included in the funny-video compilation on Ridiculousness, which is one of MTV's funniest and long-standing comedy shows.

According to Quick Cook who is known for his intro on Popcaan's single Party Shot, he is not embarrassed that millions of viewers were able to laugh at his onstage mishap. In fact, he says his popularity skyrocketed after the show and saw him receiving retweets from ZJ Liquid, Rvssian, Navani, and Friends4Real.

"I didn't feel embarrassed about it, because it's part of the music. I called a Japanese girl onstage to dance with me and she jump up on me and, in less than three minutes, I don't know what happened, but there was no stage under my feet and I fell straight to the ground and the people dem start laugh after mi. All the video man was in shock, but mi just get up and continue to entertain the people, because I was doing my work," he said.

Quick Cook says his fall is greater than that of the fictitious Humpty Dumpty character, because it brought him to MTV for the first time as a solo act. He also says the fall will not deter him from dancing, as accidents will happen.

"I went to the Mobo [Music of Black Origin] Awards with Gyptian and went to MTV. But this is the first time that I got on by myself, and it is because of the dance video," he said.

The artiste is currently promoting singles One Day, produced by Navani Records, and Game Over on the Good Book rhythm. He also opened for Richie Stephens at the recently concluded Richie Stephens and Friends concert.

"Big up mi writer and fellow artiste Krymist and mi son Baby Fast," Quick Cook said.
