Shaggy and Friend’s a Queen Z Recap: Celebrities, Big Hearts & More 

My Shaggy & Friends recap: I have to first say again I was beyond honored to be a part of this line-up for charity. I arrived a bit early to the show and to see the detail taken in putting together the ‘Artist’ area alone, I knew it was going to be an great night.

My Shaggy & Friends recap: I have to first say again I was beyond honored to be a part of this line-up for charity. I arrived a bit early to the show and to see the detail taken in putting together the ‘Artist’ area alone, I knew it was going to be an great night.
I have to give hella praise to the hospitality team on hand. They had me feeling like a princess when to me,  for charity I didn’t need or expect it. Just went to show you the extent Shaggy went to to ensure each participant understood they were appreciated. Appreciated I damn sure felt and then some.

Most artist were on hand from the beginning, Sting included. Every artist full of positive vibes, interacting, mingling, taking countless pictures with lucky fans. It was electric.
As for performances there were so many magical moments starting with the show opener Shaggy. The man who behind the scenes was overseaing the coordination, hospitality, every moment backstage is consumed with details that needed his attention. Yet, his presence on stage never skipped a beat even when the lights went out, a true performer above the rest. 

Chris Martin, Romain Virgo, Shenseea, Third World, Chaka Demus and Pliers, Proffesor Nuts all had the crowds full attention but it was the presence of old school entertainer Doug E Fresh that ignited the energy. For me Doug could do noooo wrong,  including blasting Bon Jovi through the Kingston streets. But the moment Lil Vicious stepped out to perform thier hit “Freak”, I was taken back to the times i snuck out to the local parties to get my vibes in right by the speakers. Energy!

Dexta Daps, Jeeeeez the man is the owner of the stage when it comes to the new generation. Anyone in the crowd not familiar with him that night, left knowing he is ‘one to watch’. Jr Ried, Barrington Levy, Wayne Wonder old school to ya ears by veterans in the game, stellar performances. Ding Dong and the Ravers always a highlight with the latest dances and party tracks. Idonia is unstoppable, if people think 2017 was a good year 2018 will be indescribable. Capleton the finisher had patrons in his palm with his energetic performance and high energy.

Wyclef was beyond fun and determined as he put it ” not to let VIP mess up his Youtube” wether it was watching him climb the stage structure or crowd surfing through VIP he made sure Jamaica knew he love them and Jamaica loves him right back.

Sting, is a musical GOD!!! To see him in living color not just on my t.v is an experience I’ll never forget. Especially since i got the pic to prove it, lol. He is one of the most humble souls and nothing like I personally expected behind the scenes. He blended in with the reggae fraternity as if he wasn’t this mega rock star icon but just an old friend. Humbleness and humility are rare these days, he showed enough for hundreds of these ‘celebrities’.
This whole production was for Shaggy’s fight to raise funds and awareness for the children of the Bustamante Hospital and frankly the children of Jamaica. However it was even more, it was a reminder of why some of us do this through good and bad. The power of “celebrity” gives you a voice to affect change, to guide minds in either a positive or negative frame of thinking. Ultimately the choice is up to each individual how they want to live and it’s up to each public figure how they want to use that voice. 

Shaggy is an icon and a legend, Shaggy and Friends gets a 10 outta 10 in my book.
