Once again, the annual Best of the Best Memorial Day concert was jam packed but the fans were left frustrated and disappointed. The show was locked off at midnight by the police and top flight artists like Mavado and Barrington Levy did not get a chance to perform.
Promoters and fans are blaming the boring show on certain artists who overstayed their welcome on the stage.
According to the show’s promoter, Jabba, Dexta Daps performance was way too drawn out and he took almost three times the amount of time he was allotted.
A female fan told 18 Karat Reggae that this was her 5th time in a row attending the show but the only time she did not enjoy herself.
“It was boring, they weren’t moving the crowd, and they wasted a lot of time. We didn’t even get to see Mavado,” she said.
The show was supposed to end at 11:00PM, so the police did allow an entire hour grace period. However at midnight when Jabba announced, “People, the police sey wi mus’ lock off the sound. Is not our fault,” the fans let promoters know their outrage.
Although fans left disappointed there were great performances from Christopher Martin, Jahmiel, Konshens, I-Octane and Aidonia.
