Buju Banton rocks Victoria Park


Imagine this scenario: one artiste, one band and over three thousand back up singers, belting out close to two decades of hits.{{more}}

That’s what transpired in the wee hours of Sunday morning, as international reggae star Buju Banton graced the Victoria Park for the fourth time in his illustrious career.

Buju, born Mark Anthony Myrie, held the audience captive for close to two hours, as he touched on memorable songs from his earliest full length album “Mr Mention” to his current effort “Too Bad.”

His more familiar songs were welcomed with rousing appreciation, including the classics such as “Murderer”, “Dickie”, “‘til I’m laid to rest” and the ever controversial “Boom Bye Bye”.

The Gargamel as he is also called, was accompanied by New Kidz, an upcoming singer/ dancer on his label.

He expressed his pleasure to be in St. Vincent again, and earlier in the day met with fans at Heritage Square.

The rest of Saturday night’s cast did not disappoint fans either.

The local performers who shared the stage with the Jamaicans were well received by spectators.

The artistes: Abuza, Yaphatto and Qshan Deya held their own with their variety of conscious lyrics and instrumentals. (JJ)
