Nicki Minaj Performs In Jamaica For The First Time [Video]
The unenviable task of following Nicki Minaj fell to perennial dancehall star Wayne Wonder, who also worked the very first Sumfest back in 1993 along with Buju Banton. Wonder paid tribute to his old sparring partner, who is now incarcerated but whose music remains uncontainable. Jah Cure blazed the stage with anthems like “Longing For” and his infectious ballad “Unconditional Love.” Touching the hands of his adoring fans, the young lion of reggae told them “I hope you get the Cure.”
We can only hope that the rest of the world will get it one day too. Veteran reggae rhythm section Chalice closed out the festival, celebrating their 30th anniversary as a band on a festival that celbrated the past, present, and future of reggae music.
