In February 2006 I was "discovered" on iTunes by a Warner Brothers scout looking for music to use in a Prime Time Sitcom called "All of Us." The show is produced by Will & Jada Pickett Smith and Betsy Borns. An episode from season 3 called "The N Word" (which as it turns out was Will Smith's directing debut) has a scene where the parents are explaining the history of the slave trade in the United States to their 8 year old. My song plays during this scene, in fact the parents dance to it in full traditional African garb. "Tracking the Lion" is from the CD "The Man in the Can."

Watch King Tet make a fool of himself on this reality TV show!
"It's one of the strangest things to ever happen to me. March 3rd I attended the wedding of my great friends Christian and Jina at the Aladdin in Las Vegas. You know how they say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas? Well, not when you end up on a reality TV show. I've watched the first four episodes and I remember the pranks we were exposed to so I can assure you this is going to be fun! By the way, Christian is the man who sings on my reggae song "Give Thanks, There is Peace in the Music" and he sang to his bride in the ceremony. I'm grateful that moment wasn't lost and we all have a chance to hear his wonderful song together."
