Shaggy’s performance
Shaggy gave a great performance! He entered performing Sugarcane, Strength of a Woman and Angel with Rayvon, after which he brought Tarrus Riley on stage for a live rendition of Just Another Girl (off Shaggy’s Grammy nominated album Summer in Kingston & the Kingston 13 Riddim, to be released on January 31)!

Tarrus Riley went on performing She’s Royal and Shaggy performed Bad Man Don’t Cry, What’s Love and his upcoming single Dame (to be released on the Summer in Kingston Lava Edition, in stores February 7) accompanied by Aisha Davis.

When the first sounds of Shaggy’s worldwide number one hit It Wasn’t Me were resonating through Trelawny, Shaggy brought another surprise guest on stage… It was Ne-Yo, who performed It Wasn’t Me together with Shaggy! Ne-Yo also performed Miss Independent and Shaggy and Tony Gold concluded the festival’s first night with Hey Sexy Lady. Attendees and live stream viewers say the concert was amazing!
