Riddim Wise LP has sold very well in New Zealand after receiving very positive reviews and huge airplay on all bNet radio stations. “When I Return” feat LadiSix falling into the New Zealand alternative charts at Number 1 in the second half of March and again during New Zealand Music Month in May. In this same month , Riddim Wise LP topped the charts at Number 1 on the IMNZ Independent album Charts for May 2004.
