It’s been about a week ago now that everyone was in Montego Bay recovering from Dancehall Night at Reggae Sumfest 2015 and gearing up for the press conference which had the yummy Common, Grand Hustle’s Boss T.I. and the best skin ever we have seen on a celebrity Jennifer Hudson … seriously the tiniest pores!!!
We are here just to give you a quick run down of who was good, wack and great!
Dancehall Night – There was no worries from the Ladies of Dancehall Vanessa Bling or Gaza Slim, Spice but Lady Saw was just amazing she closed the night and proved why she is the Queen of Dancehall. Out of all the men that performed we will have to give it to Popcaan.
International Night 1 – Great performances from Reggae’s new generation Raging Fyah, Kabaka Pryramid, and Jesse Royal. Rapper & actor Common gave a Stella performance and his backup singer was on the mouths of everyone after the performance. Most Jamaicans didn’t know most of Common’s songs but was still glued to watching him and his tight band. We was glued… just to look at all his yummyness! Common told our oDessa that he has just signed a major deal will a We have never seen T.I. perform before but wasn’t disappointed as the brother has such good energy on stage.
We don’t know what Coco Tea is drinking but it’s sure is working … the man looks great … doesn’t age and sounds amazing as he sung out his hits such as She Loves Me Now and Tune In and closed the night.
International Night 2 – We missed a lot of the early acts but got to see one of our favourite Jamaican singing groups L.U.S.T and some of the acts of the Pepsi Refresh Tour. After L.U.S.T was a Canadian singer called Zhavea. She looked great and had some great Jamaican dancers backing her but should have been put on way before L.U.S.T or the Pepsi Refresh Tour acts. We would say more, but it wouldn’t be nice.
Empire TV show star Yazz The Greatest has a lot of promise as a new rising star in hip-hop, he performed a lot of the hit songs of the TV show including Drip Drop which youngens sung along with him. We was told that Jamaica is the first place he has visited outside of North America.
Listen!! Jennifer Hudson is amazing … she had the audience in awe with her vocals and beauty. She is what you call a true performer. JHud we need you to come back to Jamaica again you gave us your money’s worth.
Beenie Man closed the festival and can do no wrong!!
We was told by the festival organisers that Rick Ross is booked for next year as he couldn’t make it for this year’s festival, he was actually missed.
