Jamaican Dancehall/Reggae artists Are Not Delivering on Stag

Why would an artiste spend time to write a song with two or sometimes three verses and only perform one verse when doing a live performance.


I have an issue with some of these dancehall/reggae artiste. Why is it that you only perform two lines from your songs when doing live performances before saying: 'Dash Weh dat", 'Pull Up' or 'Next song".

I think this is one of the biggest problem affecting some of you artiste. You cannot go on an international stag and do such thing. International audiences wants you to perform the entire song.

Check out the artists from other genre, they actually perform the entire song. Even veteran reggae singer Beres Hammond do the same.

The fact is that most of the artists coming out of Jamaica or not a complete package. Some can write very good songs, some can sing very well and then some can perform. But only a few of these artists have the complete package.

Some of these dancehall artiste who can give you a complete performance are Beenie Man, Sizzla Kalonji, Buju Banton and Shaggy just to name a few.

Thanks for having an informative site. I read your article about Jamaican Artists who are charging a lot of money for performances and some of them don't entertain,sing a few lines, etc and are unprofessional. I agree with you. There a few good artists left who are true professionals. Norma Fraser the singer who recorded "The first cut is the deepest" for studio one label and recorded with Bob Marley and other legends. I have been to some of her shows and she is one of the best if not the best female Jamaican singers around...her voice melts you is majestic and touching down to your very soul. No one sings like that anymore. She should get a shout out on your site and let people know that this wonderful talent is still here. Promoters in Africa would love to have her..ask them to invite her to sing for her people and believe me, I don't think she would charge those outrageous prices. It's a shame what these artists are doing to African Promoters. Hope to hear from you. Thank you.
