Without discounting the performance from other artists, Mavado had arguably the best performance at Reggae Sumfest 2017.
Some of the highlights from the Gully Gad’s set was when he dissed Popcaan and also gave his longtime dancehall nemesis Vybz Kartel a shout-out. Mavado’s energetic set was laced with several of his hits from the beginning of his career in the mid-2000s to his more current ones like his Popcaan diss record “Beat and Teach” and “Dem Run Eeen.” “Diss them the real way and them can’t defend it,” Vado said.
Mavado also performed with Alkaline during the Vendetta boss set. A number of other big names also put on a good show in front a strong turnout. Dexta Daps, Spice, Alkaline, Aidonia, Bounty Killer, Tommy Lee Sparta all put on a good show way into the early morning on Saturday. Despite some previous issues with Masicka’s performance time, the Genahsyde deejay still took the stage and put on a show for his fans.
