There were no headline acts at Saturday night’s Redemption concert event held in Trinidad. There were simply, great artistes, all prepared to sing their unforgettable love songs, reminding the over 10,000 patrons who gathered at the Queen’s Park Savannah in Port-of-Spain, that love is still the only solution to our every problem.

The event was certainly a mammoth one, thousands having flocked to the venue, braving the bumper to bumper traffic to see and feel the magical energy of Jah Cure, Mikey Spice, Beres Hammond and Tarrus Riley. Trinidad and Tobago artiste, Ziggy Rankin was also a part of the lineup- the sole local artiste, selected to be a part of the show. The musical energy of these entertainers was simply divine. They brought with them, messages, stories and more than anything else, they brought love.

Tarrus Riley, taking the stage after Jah Cure, expressed his desire to see the youth uplift themselves, delivering a song called ‘Graveyard,’ which he said he’d created for Jamaica. On show night in Trinidad, the artiste delivered it to the youths of T&T, calling out a few crime hot spot areas, as he executed the verses.

It’s the kind of song everyone needs to hear. For an artiste like Protoje, dubbed one of the architects of reggae’s revival movement, it’s really nothing new. He’s been preaching positive from the very beginning. This time around, the artiste, who was nominated for the 2018 Best Reggae Album Grammy award with, ‘A Matter of Time’, teamed up with Jamaica’s Agent Sasco and Lila Ike for what turned out to be something pretty special.

Last week, he touched down in Trinidad. He’s been making the media rounds, highlighting the new track, ‘Not Another Word’ – a song that’s come complete with the right visuals to engage. He’s no newcomer, he understands the power of visibility, the respect of social media marketing and the essence of immediate connection, but truth be told, Protoje sure wishes life were simpler.

The irony. In a world where a man can be entrapped miles away from his home country, detained for near 10 years, released, and return to being an even bigger symbol of power and positivity than he ever was, proves there are no limits. Buju Banton’s fire blazes on.

Internationally acclaimed multi millionaire music mogul, DJ Khaled’s been a close friend and ally of Mark Myrie, the artiste we all fondly refer to as Buju Banton, for some 19 years. Khaled, a US national born to Palestinian parents, has been grounded enough to know the sweet beauty that can often be found in the harsh rubble of ghetto cultured living. It’s no surprise that his latest album release, an honorary tribute to his young son, Asahd, features a few of Jamaica’s best, among them Buju Banton, Sizzla Kalonji and Mavado.
