At 9pm, host JW welcomed St. Lucian soca star Teddyson John and his band The Teddyson Project to the stage. As the opening act, Teddyson – decked in white demonstrated his soulful musicality as he serenaded the crowd with his melodious hits of then and now. His set also featured Grenadian Star Skinny Banton.

The crowd was then entertained by renowned St. Lucian DJ Barrie Hype who hyped the crowd in anticipation of the headline act Kes The Band. By 10pm, with an instrumental entrance of his monster collaboration track “Stage Gone Bad” – Kees blessed the stage.

Kees Dieffenthaller has continued to wow audiences with his versatility and true artistry.

His performances were well placed and appropriately transitioned delivering favourites like “People”, Bachannal and a Millian Gyal”, “Boss Lady”, “Where Yuh From” and “Hello” while his soca comrades Sekon Sta, Nadia Batson, Terry Lyons and Patrice Lyons joined him on stage and delivered concise and well received performances.

A lover of Caribbean music, Kees dabbled in some old school dub (“Murder She Wrote”, “Too Experienced”, “Romey” and “Walk Like a Champion” – to name a few), highlighting the foundation of his musical influences and later brought on Jamaican superstar Konshens – who was definitely a favourite for the ladies. African sensation Afro B also made an appearance singing his international hit “Drogba (Joanna)”.

US based, internationally acclaimed reggae artist, Shaggy has called on the US Embassy in Jamaica, the US Ambassador to the country and the country’s Prime Minister, Andrew Holness, to do what is necessary to aid in ensuring that both Bounty Killa and Beenie Man are able to acquire US Visas. His call comes on the heels of their VERZUZ virtual clash on Saturday where close to 500,000 persons logged on to view the veterans battle musically.

Beenie Man and Bounty Killa both had their US VISAS revoked in 2010. At that time, Mavado and Aidonia were also among the dancehall artistes who’s US Visas were taken away by the US Embassy. In 2011, Mavado was once again able to travel to the US and then, five years later, Aidonia was allowed re-entry. To date, both Beenie Man and Bounty Killa remain without US travel access.

In his social media post, both meant to celebrate Jamaica’s cultural performance by these two veteran artistes, and dispute the state of their travel affairs, Grammy award winner, Shaggy said, “Fans world wide were greeted with a cultural experience of epic proportions as best as it could be delivered in these covid times.
