Shaggy and Friends 2012

Shaggy and Friends 2012

There were much-appreciated performances from the likes of Beres Hammond who was in his usual top form with I Feel Good, Double Trouble and more.

Veterans Cocoa Tea and Half Pint were also in top form and had the crowd singing along. Maxi Priest, who had been off the local scene for a short time, delighted with Shaggy, performing That Girl after which Priest showed that his vocals are still strong with Wide World and A Little Closer.

The show had kicked off after 8 p.m., with the man of the hour Shaggy who invited Tarrus Riley on stage for their collaboration Another Girl. After doing a brief set which included his hit She's Royal, Riley soon exited the stage but would return throughout the night alongside Shaggy as the host of the event. Romain Virgo came on next and introduced singer Tami Chynn who 'hyperventilated' before inviting her husband Wayne Marshall. Marshall sang about 'messing with his heart' and called on deejays Tifa and Future Fambo. The three did an interesting set of mixed songs before ending with Swaggin' (WTF).

Grammy winner Deniece Williams, one of three overseas acts, gave a good set which included the popular Hear it for the Boys, and It's Gonna Take A Miracle. Dancehall was also at the forefront with Assassin, I-Octane and Gyptian. Mr Vegas mixed a little gospel into his act before dancing with Tek Weh Yuhself. Shaggy repeatedly came on for the night giving pieces of his different songs such as Sugarcane and even invited on Tessanne Chin.

Despite having a number of artistes performing, the show moved smoothly and had a large audience turnout. A number of artistes, while not performing, also came out to support the show. The STAR spotted the likes of Lady Saw, Bounty Killer, Popcaan, Stacious, I-Shawna, Voicemail, Alaine, Junior Reid and others.

After a long night of good performances from top names in reggae and dancehall music, the closing act, American singer Lauryn Hill, finally graced the stage at 2 a.m. with her hit, Killing Me Softly.

A number of patrons by this time had made their way through the exit with only a few loyal supporters staying as she went into Everything is Everything and did a rendition of Bob Marley's songs.
