Mr Vegas Reggae Sumfest photo

After almost ten years absence Dancehall Superstar Mr. Vegas returned to the Reggae Sumfest stage with a bang proving why he is still one of the most sought after dancehall artistes on the international tour circuit.

Dressed in a classy retro ensemble featuring a Lavender jacket, big heel boots and bell foot pants, Vegas was a showman exemplary; demonstrating master control of the stage and exciting exhibition of the dancehall art form. He dressed the part to go with his performance that had all the elements of our culture; from Gospel and foundation reggae to dancehall and comedy. The Modern veteran also showed the crowd the he is verse and can write lyrics for any occasion, keeping it entertaining.

Mr. Vegas who blessed his set in prayer before entering the stage area then belted out his signature I am Blessed hit and had the Sumfest Dancehall Night crowd eating out of his hands as he turned the pages of his repertoire. Collecting huge forwards for the likes of Heads high, Nike air, hands up, and Raffle and Dip, Mr. Vegas says he is humbled by the tremendous welcome and acceptance given to him by the Jamaican Fans.

The international star brought Catherine Hall audience to a frenzy when he called on his MV Music artist Latty J, and went into a battle of the sexes with the track Who Rule. Latty J could do no wrong, as she and Mr Vegas gave the audience a brilliant and witty clash.

Mr. Vegas was happy with his performance, “I want to big up every artist that performed. It was a great effort on our part to entertain the audience. Some people are saying Vegas took the show and I am grateful and humbled for being mentioned. However, my priority is not about taking the show, my main objective is to give the people a great performance, so big up all the artists that performed on Sumfest 2014”.

Mr. Vegas got a stamp of approval by Beenie Man and most people at the end of the night.

As a Special surprise to the Sumfest Fans the artiste was also brought onstage on Reggae Sumfest International Night 1 by R & B Superstar Jason Derulo for their reggae remix of Jason Derulo’s mega hit Talk Dirty To me.

Now basking in the renewed respect gained from this massive performance, Mr. Vegas is confident in the way forward and feels vindicated for sticking to his principles: “My fans can expect only positive vibes from me moving forward. The focus is now on Latty J, Team Hustle and my own career especially my reggae album Euphoria scheduled for September release. We will be doing an album launch in Jamaica as a tribute to the fans who have supported me over the last 17 years.

      Let’s be real if we were in the 80s right now you’d be rocking an afro maybe even a jerry curl we’d have to change our pillow cases daily cover our couch with plastic it would be a such a mess. You ever slept on a couch covered in plastic? You slide right off! Now come along Tweley I plan on stealing the show at soul train so let’s go already!(T soaking his hair while making several outfit changes + prince heels) Remember that FLASHDANCE chair scene(He’s A Dream) we practiced? huh? Again there’s no chair so you will be my chair just like before like we practiced. roflmao
      * salena coo’s He’s…. a…. dream * and sashays away ;)

      • http://www.vice.com Tweley

        If this was the 80s I’d still do me. Heels and disco is the 70s though and it was a bad time in history. Tbh the quality of fashion really started to come around 2006 proportion wise. To be on topic…

        As far as your dance huh I like that movie because it was deeper than what was portrayed. You can always do a handstand and put your legs up on some wall if you want to get down…

      • salena

        I’m still rocking my bamboo gold earring or was that 90’s? The 80’s was a fun time in music the fashion oh man too bad I was in my mom’s stomach fighting with my twin I would’ve been wearing my parachute pants,hairspray,neon colors etc. I know most of the damage to the ozone layer occurred in the 80’s roflmao 80’s fashion was fun not too serious.*sighs* So I guess I would be doing me which is getting lost in the 80’s having a kick-ass time. Who said 80’s fashion needed fine tuning? roflmao I like vintage clothes!

      • http://www.vice.com Tweley

        You seem to be in a really good mood :X
        80s fashion was experimental which added flavor, but still wild at times.

      • salena

        Roflmao I have to ability to bust your ass and kiss you on your cheek at the same time. roflmao Besides I worked it out already by having a game of virtual horizontal twister. roflmao guess what, I was the one spinning the wheel! roflmao I like vintage clothes skipping school to hit the club falling for the bad boy jock while being comforted by the nerd that still isn’t my type. :) I take it you don’t want a ride or die bytch?

      • http://www.vice.com Tweley

        You lost me.

      • salena

        I assumed you saw me get into it with some chick online. roflmao Put it this way you’ve never made me feel like pulling your pants down and belting your behind. I think you cool even when you make your Catfish comments. roflmao You think I get mad ? when? I find it more entertaining sparring with you so hold the bag really good as I wouldn’t want to knock you out well not just yet. roflmao

      • http://www.vice.com Tweley

        Yea I missed that, who said you got mad. I’m not about that catfish thing.. idk what comments. I keep it 100% except this website REALLY limits what I want to put down at times. We debate yea, but that’s what opinions are for lol so I don’t expect to be belted.

      • salena

        You said I was in a good mood I was reading between the lines as you tend to be the main cause of the deforestation taking place throughout the world.(beating around the bush) So hold the bag (boxing) gently as I have bigger plans for you besides knocking you out! roflmao

      • http://www.vice.com Tweley

        WOW lol you digging too deep I just said you seem to be in a good mood based on your comments about “fashion,80s”.. Yea Salena.. time for a vaca

      • salena

        Where we going back home to the Islands? Mine or yours? roflmao Are you traveling in my luggage bag? roflmao

      • http://www.vice.com Tweley

        I’ll literally piggyback on you to wherever, you seem to take charge.. except it has to have clear waters and sand with a mixed crowd.

      • salena

        You trying to kill me? How much do you weigh? roflmao I don’t even know what shade of black you are. roflmao We don’t know the quality of the water anymore thanks to these idiots with their radioactive waste. roflmao Get your sunscreen ready as I don’t go any lower than SPF 110. roflmao j/k

      • http://www.vice.com Tweley

        I’m the shade of black that doesn’t require a tan and don’t crack..You seem like strong girl.. ride or die type. Go ahead take charge, I’m just a passenger.The waters are still nice, don’t believe the hype.

      • salena

        You haven’t seen the fish floating face down tail up? roflmao Okay I will be the only one using the sunscreen then so once again your skin is grey. roflmao

      • http://www.vice.com Tweley

        Don’t worry about my shade I will be flexing on instagram soon, too bad you can’t see :( . I wouldn’t mind being grey though and nah this isn’t deep ocean territory we are exploring.

      • salena

        So me at 5’9 120ibs tan skin will be providing a piggy back to casper the ghost whom I can’t see. roflmao :) Are you a midget?roflmao

      • http://www.vice.com Tweley

        Sounds great, casper has friendly reputation.

      • salena

        Flex time to have____ roflmao :)

      • http://www.vice.com Tweley

        Flex-a-thon , I do have side things I do besides chiming in.

      • salena

        I have no clue what that is did this happened after I left the city?

      • http://www.vice.com Tweley

        No I was describing me going in on instagram in a series of self promotion and spamming. As for the city it’s treating me good this summer :x

      • salena

        Roflmao do you still have your accent?

      • http://www.vice.com Tweley

        I have 3 accents, I turn them on depending on the setting. i’m tired of Jamaican food as of late, I’ve been messing with thai and portuguese bbq. Once a week jerk and curry though.

      • salena

        :)

      • http://www.vice.com Tweley

        I’m tired of you bringing up white men smh… Hmmm seems like you was going through some stuff, but hey I don’t want to dig deep again :x

      • salena

        Lol forgive me for talking about reality. roflmao I just meant that if you look at the city and the people born and raised their they tend to be self serving cyborgs compare to the people who gravitate towards the city from around the globe. We tend to be the people helping the blind man get to where he’s going. I actually came to realize that my accent helped me and besides I don’t think any black man American, Caribbean, African, Canadian is going to let me wear his trousers, hat, suspenders maybe his button down collared shirt where I roll the sleeves up. roflmao

      • http://www.vice.com Tweley

        I love all types of women, never settled for one race. You just mess with white men because they are pushovers it seem… but hey I’m just observing things.

      • salena

        Dude one time in Flatbush me and my boy toy(white) walked by a group of black dudes and I already predicted that something was going to happen as I am a psychic. roflmao so any-who one of these dudes fling a rock it bounce of the side of the building and chop me in my head. I turned around with my arms stretch out in my accent “You gey a problem o wa!” They all started to laugh my boy toy didn’t say anything but had they chop him I was ready and willing to F them all up. roflmao

      • http://www.vice.com Tweley

        That white boy sounded real BRAVE lol.. Salena you seems all type of crazy which can be good and bad depending on circumstances.. You and these pushovers, you probably have one paying your bills now… just saying lol.

      • salena

        roflmao I didn’t expect him to anything he was more scared than I was. roflmao Besides what would happen if he went on bad and I wasn’t around to defend him? roflmao You know I’m really crazy in the sense that you will laugh until your heart stops and will die with a smile on your face. No I don’t even like when a dude pays for my food etc. Not to mention no one cares about intraracial crimes they’re more concerned about interracial crimes.

      • http://www.vice.com Tweley

        I like when a woman pays for mine and no I much rather die while having sex.. hope the lord will forgive me for that.

      • salena

        Roflmao Damn you want her picking up the tab boy oh boy Tweley roflmao I’d rather die dancing while having a laughgasm.

      • http://www.vice.com Tweley

        It’s like a 1up, I can weed out the birds ;) from those who can hold their own. That’s good to know, but life is unpredictable so I play hard until I fold..

      • salena

        Not to mention I get plenty vitamin-d from just basking in the rays of the sun and taking a multivitamin daily. roflmao

      • http://www.vice.com Tweley

        Hmm not sure if that had undertones of other things or you just genuinely enjoy getting tans.

      • salena

        Clearly that was me being fresh.lol So you don’t like the cluck cluck chicken head financial domination? (fetish) So not only do we have to run several laps and come with a bag of tricks we have to perform circus tricks like juggle balls and walk a tight rope in heels while keeping you entertained at the same time. I’ll get you a new game for your xbox. :)

      • http://www.vice.com Tweley

        Only game I play is the truth game like I said before. You seem to be the Solange of relationships..

      • salena

        Solange in the sense where each day we’ll have a new adventure? That I’d have you sleeping on the inside of the bed, walking on the inside of the street. That our relationship will not need to be revived using an outside source or a bag of tricks or Trix Cereal or the next resident evil game for your xbox.Huh? Let’s go bungee jumping without a rope perhaps skydiving without a parachute. (metaphor) :) Let me know when you get tired of riding unicorns. roflmao ;)

      • http://www.vice.com Tweley

        That^ is a perfect exampleof why you are Solange when it comes to mind. You need a proper taming…

      • salena

        Here’s the thing I’m a Pisces woman if you believe in that I’m very free spirited and maybe more open minded than most people. I have no problem talking about taboo subjects as it is also a part of reality. I also don’t think that it makes me less refined too. :) Are you a matador waving your red flag?

      • http://www.vice.com Tweley

        Dam guess you’re the total package lol

      • salena

        But the fish(Pisces chick) like to swim so make sure you have great fishing lure maybe one with Jon Hamm’s bulge roflmao Oh Jezzus my heart just stopped!

      • http://www.vice.com Tweley

        Leave the fishing up to Mr.Vegas back on subject.. I also have no idea what you on.. you should do poetry or something to clear ya mind. These comments I can’t no longer decode or attempt to, I’m focused on important matters.

      • salena

        *sighs* Ok Tweley I will see you never :) adios (bye) or as we say gwan!

      • salena

        Whatever Tweley you upvoted me. roflmao

      • http://www.vice.com Tweley

        You win Salena, you always win..

      • salena

        Whatever dude I gone so I have the ability to make people actually enjoy themselves and laugh so sue me. At least I’m not some chick waiting around for some dude to call, needing all of his attention so I make you laugh whatever gwan! At least when the world is about to end you will die with a big ass smile on your face.

      • http://www.vice.com Tweley

        Hmm not sure if you are “upset” but lol my sense of humor is hit or miss lately due to amount of trivial things I got to face on daily. I gladly accept the bun lol
