“We need more entertainment,” Lexx continues. “It’s entertainment; everybody a tek this ting too serious an di music dark. we need back happy music. we need performances and entertainment. Mi deh deh an a watch di whole crowd and I was saying, ‘dem need me, I gotta come back.”
Mr. Lexx did not performed on this year’s Reggae Sumfest but was a regular on the show’s lineup in the lane 1990s to early 2000s.
He is know for hits such as “Cook,” “Ring off Mi Cellie,” and “Man A Nuh Yu Problem.” These days the deejay is working on his own record label.
