Charly Black to host stage show in St Ann

The Star (Jamaica) - - ENTERTAINMENT THE WEEKEND STAR - SHERE­ITA GRIZ­ZLE STAR Writer

Di­a­mond-sell­ing artiste Charly Black and his Team Un­stop­pable are gear­ing up to host a huge stage show in Alexan­dria, St Ann, on Satur­day. The Mo­men­tum Reg­gae Fes­ti­val is set for the Charl­ton, Alexan­dria, Mar­ket House.

Speak­ing with THE WEEK­END STAR in a re­cent in­ter­view, the en­ter­tainer, who hails from Trelawny, said that the show is very im­por­tant to him as it not only gives young artistes a plat­form to show­case their tal­ents, but it also breathes new life into the ru­ral com­mu­nity. Point­ing out that many of the parishes on that end of the is­land have very few stage shows, Charly Black said his aim in host­ing the event is to re-en­er­gise the en­ter­tain­ment scene in these parishes.

“I de­cided to start the show be­cause Ja­maica have less stage shows now, and yuh nah see many new artiste. Yuh hear dem on the ra­dio, but yuh nah re­ally see them on a stage,” he said. “Di peo­ple dem in West­more­land and MoBay have their show, but there’s not much com­ing from Trelawny to St Ann. I want to do my part to change that. Peo­ple down here need shows, too.” Al­ready, acts such as Ikaya, Tifa, Wayne Mar­shall, Tanto Metro and Devonte have been booked for the event. The show will also show­case a num­ber of up-and-com­ing acts, in­clud­ing Buck 1, Tonii Mun­roe, Shudly, Naveesh and Mi­grain. Charly Black is en­cour­ag­ing per­sons to come out and sup­port the event. “It just go­ing to be me and my artiste fren dem a hold a vibe in Charl­ton, Alexan­dria, on Satur­day. It was very beau­ti­ful last year, and I know it’s go­ing to be even bet­ter this year. The con­cert is about Ja­maican artistes show­ing love back to Ja­maica,” he said. “A more than 10 artiste on the bill, and we nah kill no­body. Ad­mis­sion is free be­fore 11; af­ter 11 is $1,000; VIP is $1,500. We mak­ing it a big­ger brand be­cause next year, we gonna turn it into a band show. At least this side of Ja­maica will have a show each year to look for­ward to.”
