An article post on myjoyonline.com is saying that reggae music singer Luciano was pelted with empty water bottles at the Nigerian Carnival.


The news of Nigerian carnival attendees at the Liberation Stadium in Port Harcourt, Nigeria, hurling empty water bottles at the reggae icon, Luciano, will be received by many reggae enthusiasts as not only shocking, embarrassing and disheartening, but sacrilegious. For the icon remains simply the finest the industry currently has in genre, style, and message, especially after the demise of icons such as Lucky Dube and Joseph Hill of the Culture fame.

To bring the level of irreverence home to the Ghanaian music enthusiasts, this might sound like the good old Osibisa band being driven off stage with boos, empty cans, and bottles in Nigeria. To the South African, it might be their own Lucky Dube; and to the Ivorian, Alpha Blondy. It must have been a horrifying experience to the man known in private life as Jepther McClymonth and difficult to believe.

When I watched the Jah Messenger, as he is affectionately called by his fans, at the Accra Sport Stadium in Ghana in December 2007, memories of the night still live on after four good years. It is captivating to watch your musical idol do his/her rendition in a live concert. Nothing compares to that electrifying feeling which connects the adherent and his idol in a moment of passion.

Luciano was the star par excellence of the night. Even though he shared stage with John Legend, a recipient of nine Grammy Awards, he established his connection with his audience and stamped his authority on stage in the course of the night. With a highly energetic performance, he erupted the crowd to sing along when he rendered his track It’s Me Again Jah with both knees down and both hands up in veneration before the Lord.

I pardoned Ghanaians for knowing very little about John Legend and his exploits, in my estimation, and for that matter not warming up to him, and so did I excused the promoters of the show for lining up the two icons – John Legend and Luciano – of widely varying musical genres as costar performers of the night. John Legend would have done better with American or European audience, but not a Ghanaian audience as far as reggae was concerned. There is simply something about the Ghanaian and reggae!
