Tarrus Riley was joined by Beenie Man and Popcaan on stage during his performance over the weekend at the ‘World’s Greatest Reggae Festival’, Reggae Sumfest on Saturday’s Reggae Night, each receiving encores louder than the last.
The festival’s new management made changes to the Reggae Sumfest model, where International Night was replaced by Reggae Night. Riley had first called special guests Iba Mahr and Zagga on stage.
Before being joined on stage by the aforementioned artistes, Mr. Riley paid respect to reggae’s forefathers, he drew for Mama Africa, Night Nurse and Don’t You Know. Singing to his heart’s content, Riley went further, paying tribute to his late father Jimmy Riley.
Designating time to the females, he pulled for two of his chart-topping love songs, I Will Stay With You and She’s Royal. Syllable for syllable, word for word, the positive vibes journeyed across the venue.
