Chuck Fenda, Chedda, Don Sniper, Nitty Kutchie & Wasp Delivers at Sting
December 28, 2009: Reggae recording artiste Chuck Fenda last Saturday showed why is he is one of the top billed acts in Reggae. The artiste who now goes by the moniker the ‘Living Fire’ arguably delivered one of the best performances at this year’s staging of Sting. His set was described by many as very moving and inspirational. During his set the reggae singer received an encore and was recalled on stage twice by the emcee. In his second segment he lashed out at the evils now plaguing our society before dedicated a song in prayer to his and all the mothers of the world. The very touching performance saw the thousands in attendance raising their hands/cell phones/rags and anything else they could find to show appreciation for a well received message. After exiting the stage Fenda left the venue straight to the Norman Manley International Airport for another assignment in Florida. The Living Fire is due back in the island later this week.
Chedda and the Sting ‘Acid Test’ston Jamaica:
Earlier, Darkcide Media and U.I.M upcoming artiste Chedda took patrons for a ride as the attentive crowd listened his delivery of some very fiery lyrics with song like ‘Because A Likes’, ‘Pop Champagne’ and ‘Stay Far’ now enjoying premium airtime on the radio waves. In between his songs the artiste took time out to converse with the large gathering and soon won the approval of the crowd gaining several forwards in the process. For Chedda this was a critical part of his development, as passing the Sting ‘Acid Test’ is a feat dreaded by many upcoming and established entertainers. However Chedda has shown that a tight set combined with good conversation can pull you through a tough audience. With Sting now behind him, the son of legendary dancehall veteran Daddy Screw is putting final touched to his soon to be released mixtape slated for January 2010.
Nitty Kutchie Delivers Like A Veteran
Decked in a Romeich Wear/Mooney ensemble veteran crooner Nitty Kutchie hit the stage early Sunday morning to an almost packed Jamworld. The crooner after greeting the crowd was off to a good start and without any delay unleashed his catalogue of hits that had members of the VIP area singing along while patrons in the general admission lit the morning sky with fire torches signally their approval. Despite some hiccups with the backing band the Flava Squad recording artiste stood his ground segued into an acapella and still gave a good account of himself. With one of the year's biggest shows under his belt, Nitty Kutchie is now focused on promoting his new single ‘Guide Me Jah’ on the Heart Melodies Riddim soon to be officially released.
Wasp Cried for The People
The Cassia Park native with one of the year’s biggest songs ‘Unfair/ Officer’ took the stages at 5:00am and without much effort had the potent crowd at his mercy. Wasp took them on a musical high with songs like ‘Cry Fi Dem’ but experienced a little difficultly after the bands men forgot the format that was rehearsed weeks prior to the show. Nonetheless Wasp showed he was a true entertainer and took the unforgiving circumstance and worked it to the best of his ability. In the end his set was well received despite the minor glitches as he paved the way for the highly anticipated showdown between Bounty & Vybz Kartel that did not materialised. In January Wasp is expected to release his third and final mixtape before focusing his attention on his debut album.
Don Sniper asked the ladies How Many?
Multi-talented Deejay/Producer and Entrepreneur Don Sniper now enjoying some fame with his Hice It Up Riddim medley featuring the likes of Beenie Man, Vybz Kartel, Harry Toddler, Nitty Kutchie and himself among others, is no newcomer to Sting. This being is second time on the greatest one night show on Earth, Sniper delivered his current chart bubbler ‘How Many’ to the hundreds in attendance and the ladies indeed responded as they wine and gyrated to the infectious lyrics. This laid the platform giving Sniper the ammunition he needed to deliver a shot but spicy set. Don Sniper is now busy in studio working on several new projects set for release in the new year on the Pleasure Time Records label.
