Shaggy And Friends Put On A Great Show For An Even Greater Cause
Reggae powerhouse Shaggy brought together a few friends for a charity show in aid of the Bustamante Children’s Hospital on the grounds of Jamaica House in Kingston. The level of support was evident on the streets of Kingston as patrons converged on the venue resulting in a massive traffic backup along Waterloo Road and others, with motorists crawling in line for almost an hour before being able to enter the grounds. But what’s a little traffic and a few lines for a good cause. Shaggy’s friends included Grammy-winning R&B artiste NeYo, Damian ‘Jr Gong’ Marley, Trinidadian Kes, Agent Sasco, energy god Elephant Man, comedians Ity and Fancy Cat, Wayne Marshall (and his eight-year-old son) and recent The Voice winner Tessanne Chin, each rifling through a series of their hits. The Shaggy Make a Difference Foundation organises the annual charity event to assist in the provision of equipment and supplies for the children’s hospital, the only one of its kind in the English-speaking Caribbean. Not bad Mr. Boombastic, not bad at all.
