ST JAMES, Jamaica — Cancer survivor, Feluke sang his way into the hearts of patrons during the early goings of the final night of the 25th staging of Reggae Sumfest, now underway at the Catherine Hall Entertainment Centre in Montego Bay.

The dreadlocks Rastaman, who confessed that at one stage he had given up, seemed to be immensely enjoying his second lease on life as he fitted from corner to corner on the huge stage, delivering his well-received songs.

Feluke, who recently returned from Mexico where he was treated for cancer, sampled Buju Banton’s “It’s Not An Easy Road” in a set which included “Building on Israel”, “Keep Our Souls Alive”, among others.

His performance came after those of Sizzla Kalonji’s son, Meliku and Deep Jahi who were also well received.

Sizzla Kalonji closed the show which featured the likes of Kabaka Pyramid, Stephen Marley, Queen Ifrika, Sean Paul, Sean Kingston, Mad Cobra, Jah Cure, Beenie Man, Chris Martin, among others.
