vybz kartel performing

Perhaps the expectation was too high or the Gaza don was under represented at this year’s Reggae Sumfest dancehall night.

Despite dancehall night being notorious for its tough audience, a slew of dancehall acts performed above par with the exception of Vybz Kartel who delivered a rock bottom disappointing set.

Gaza members Shawn Storm and Popcaan helped rescue their mentor’s image by scrapping two forwards from fans, however, the addition of Gaza Slim and Sheba was an embarrassment to the self proclaimed “Dancehall Hero” as 20,000 strong fans stands and look in dismay.
