Listen, from past experiences about artists missing flights and shows, especially Jamaicans who are ridiculously notorious for this, I will never hype over a concert till I see the artist has landed in the 254.
Reggae fans and fanatics are all set for the Damian Marley gig, going down on Wednesday 31st at the Carnivore Grounds and the man jetted in the country with his band yesterday. The top-tier performer was in Durban South Africa for the Zakifo Festival on Sunday where he got a heap of praises for crushing the party. Now it is 254’s turn to experience a Marley family on stage.
As per the norm, incidences happen and the Damian entourage was welcomed with drama at the JKIA. A renowned sports anchor Chiko Lawi threw a fit at the Airport after he apparently missed a photo/selfie opp with the artist.
As he later explained on Instagram, “Damian Marley just ignored a young fan with her daughter because he is too tired”. He did a video thereafter cursing out the artist telling him that he would not be cowed while in his home country. The video went viral and social media was split between supporting Chiko or the artist.
But you know what, the internet always wins. Damian Marley was the trending topic, Chiko took the L and even artist like Sauti Sol disowned him telling him to grow some manners and respect people’s private space.
