Energy sapping show in store for dancehall lovers

Another potentially explosive artist is Gusspy Warrior, the son of gospel musician Mechanic Manyeruke.

These artists are known for their energy whenever they perform at local shows and especially when they curtain raise for international artists.
Sniper, King Shady and Gusspy Warrior also performed the supporting acts at the Capleton show last year.

Winky D will again brush shoulders with another of Kingston’s best dancehall artist after he put up a five-star performance which left the crowds asking for more at Beenie Man’s show.

He is arguably the best artist of the moment, having proved it by being the regular curtain raiser at most of the international artists’ shows in the country.

However, the question is, will our local artists match Elephant Man, who is also known as “The Energy God”?

“This is going to be a dancehall concert filled with artists who have more energy when it comes to stage management.

“Testimony to this perspective is the choice of artists we have as part of the supporting acts.

“We want to give out the best dancehall concert with a unique flavour and genre,” said Clint Robinson, the Director of C&A Entertainment, organisers of the show.

In an interview with Stand-ardLife&Style Robinson also said that they had organised a welcome party for Elephant Man, slated for June 23 at Red fox Hotel, the day the Jamaican is expected to arrive in the country.

In the past however, fans have had problems with these artists disappointing and failing to show up.

“We will make sure and see to it that Elephant Man doesn’t disappoint. We will talk to him in advance so that he knows the schedule,” said Robinson.
Two of the fashionable reggae sounds in Zimbabwe, Judgment Yard and Legendary Sound are also expected to grace the party.

So far Jamaican artists who have performed in the country include Sizzla Kalonji, Yassus Afari, Capleton, Beenie Man and King Sounds.

The organisers said Elephant Man will not be bringing his band and none among our local artists will be performing with a band.

“All artists are going to perform with back tracks, but even with backtracks all the artists are exceptional and full of energy, especially ‘Ele’”.

To all those who have known Elephant Man and seen most of his videos and live performances, he is revered for his energetic stage performances which include jumping, running and sometimes climbing on stage props and monitors.

Having started his musical carrier as a member of the Scare Dem Crew, he later left and went solo.

Many of his songs are found on various Riddim Driven albums by VP Records and Green sleeves Records’ Rhythm Album series.

Popular tracks revered by most by his fans include Pon De River and the popular songs on the Bad Company and Diwali riddims.
