#Sumfest2017: Cancer survivor well received at Reggae Sumfest

Saturday, July 22, 2017

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.

Jah Cure ends feud with Fantan Mojah in entertaining Sumfest set

Jah Cure and Fantan Mojah shook hands and hugged on the Reggae Sumfest stage at Catherine Hall in Montego Bay on Sunday morning, putting an end to their short-lived feud, which reportedly had at one point threatened to become violent.

During Jah Cure’s performance, the reggae singer informed audience members that he saw his “brother” Fantan Mojah backstage, and then called on Mojah to join him centre stage.

The two then shook hands and hugged, before Mojah helped Jah Cure to finish their recorded collaboration, Nuh Build Great Man.

Jah Cure would then deliver Love Is, after which Fantan Mojah sang his own hit, Hail The King, which was greeted by loud cheers of approval by the crowd. Mojah then departed the stage for Jah Cure to complete his act with Longing For and Unconditional Love.

The two had reportedly been at odds with each other since May, when it was alleged that Jah Cure attacked Mojah outside a residence of fellow artiste Capleton. Mojah took to social media afterwards to admit to an incident between the pair, but said that he held no grudges with Jah Cure.

Before that, Jah Cure had started his act with Prison Walls before doing That Girl, Call On Me, You’ll Never Find and What Will It Take.

Sean Paul and his three dancers delivered an energetic performance during the 50 minutes that he was on stage at Reggae Sumfest in Catherine Hall, Montego Bay, on Sunday morning.

Entering the stage with Bum Bum, they kept the tempo going throughout until his closing song, Bounce It Right Here. His overall act picked up the longer it lasted.

After Bum Bum, Sean Paul did Get Busy and Got To Love You, Press It Up and Baby Boy, Gimme Di Light and We Be Burnin.

Like Glue would follow and then Deport Them and Gyalis Pro after which he asked the crowd to indicate by putting their hands in the air, who loves their mother. Getting the requisite response he then gave them Rockabye.

Telling the audience about and then deejaying, Gonna Be Lit Tonight , he then launched into Cheap Thrills, before calling up Chi Ching Ching for them to do their collaboration, Crick Neck, to loud cheers of approval by the Catherine Hall crowd.

Chi Ching Ching would then do a medley of dance songs with Sean Paul joining his dancers.

Gimme Di Light would follow Chi Ching Ching’s departure before She Doesn’t Mind and the closure, Bounce It Right Here.

Jahmiel Hits VH1, Gears Up For Reggae Sumfest

Published:Wednesday | July 19, 2017 | 7:00 AM

Jahmiel performing at Magnum New Rules on Saturday.

Reggae/dancehall artiste Jahmiel hits American cable television network VH1 with his single, Strongest Soldier.

Currently garnering a lot of views via his Vevo account and major radio spins worldwide, Jahmiel has been able to secure his video on VH1 for an international audience to view.

This is not the first time Jahmiel received international television recognition. Last year his video, Years To Come, was also added to BET.

Jahmiel embraced the opportunity to present his videos on such major international media outlets while thanking his team for seeking these platforms.

“When given the opportunity to share my music with a wider audience, it is definitely something I embrace and I give thanks for my team, who is always searching for those platforms,” said Jahmiel.

Upon returning to Jamaica after his performance this past weekend at AEG Live – Reggae in The Park, alongside Ziggy Marley, Beres Hammond, Capleton, Sizzla Kalonji and Culture, Jahmiel is focused on his performance at Reggae Sumfest this Friday.

“Looking forward to performing at Sumfest, as them say, ‘Our Music, Our Festival’. I am glad for the opportunity to perform this year and definitely want the people to expect a great show. I always give 150 per cent but I must say, this one is extra special, so expect 200per cent Friday night,” he said.

Set to perform with Ruff Kutt band, Jahmiel is definitely anticipating one of his better performances this year in Jamaica and look forward to showing the people his growth.

Jahmiel also recently completed recording his debut album.
