(JAMAICA STAR) — Reggae artistes Chronixx, Cocoa Tea, Etana, Ghost and Romain Virgo have been listed as some of the friends who will perform with Buju Banton at his Long Walk To Freedom concert on March 16.

The concert, which will be held at the National Stadium in Kingston, will be Buju’s first performance on local soil in more than a decade. Grammy-winning artiste returned to Jamaica last December after spending eight years in a United States federal prison on drug-related charges.

Buju’s son, Jahzeil, Delly Ranks, Agent Sasco and LUST are also slated to perform at the concert.

“These are the ones performing, but the ‘and friends’ is still there,” the artiste’s publicist Ronnie Tomlinson, said.

As for the man of the hour, she said that Banton was very active in helping to curate the line-up.

“He’s definitely in high spirits for the show,” she said.

“We know he’s looking forward to a 90-minute set, but there might be more time based on conversations we’ve had,” Tomlinson said.

She said that the artiste is working hard to make sure his highly-anticipated presentation is perfect for his fans.

“I can definitely say that he is excited. He’s really anticipating the performance. Rehearsals are going on, and he always wants to go to rehearsal, to make sure everything is right.”

Gadahfii collaborates with veteran producer for authentic music

by Curtis Campbell

Reggae artiste Gadahfii has released a new EP titled ‘Bag of Money’ which was produced by iconic producer Hansel Collins, known for the Stalag rhythm which broke hits like ‘Bam Bam’ by Sister Nancy and ‘Ring The Alarm’ by Tenor Saw.

Gadahfii’s EP will feature songs like All the Time, Jamaica and Chiney Jamaica. He also revealed that working with the iconic Collins has helped to mould his grasp on creating authentic Jamaican music,

“I am bringing back authentic reggae and dancehall like the days of the ’80s and ’90s. However, I will also put a new twist to it. I love every genre and I am inspired by even the instruments, so people will recognise and see that effect in my work. I have been getting good reception and a lot of people love the fact that I deliver a live-band type of music. So the response is very loud,” he said.

Gadahfii believes reggae is the world’s most powerful genre due to its powerful messages and its ability to reach persons who are far removed from the immediate Jamaican culture.

He, however, wants improvement in marketing, use of the Internet, management and streaming. He also advised young Jamaican talent to development their networking and performing skills.

“Jamaica is lacking in bands, so you need to work on performing and start a band. I am aiming at the highest level with my music. I am an international product and I am looking to do songs with rock stars and rap stars,” he said.
