August 11 - Part IV of Shaggy and Cyndi Lauper live in concert at the Singfest 2007 Festival in Fort Canning Park, Singapore pictures and videos
There are a lot more pictures of the Shaggy and Cyndi Lauper concerts at the Singfest 2007 in Singapore online, so here's a review of all new reviews, pictures, links to a even more pictures that I found and a video of the Shaggy & Cyndi Lauper combo for Girls Just Wanna Have Fun. So here it goes...
When Cyndi Lauper invited Shaggy on stage, she traded the black wig she came on stage with for Shaggy's hat at some point in time - you can see it all at Concede. Dawn Yang also has a couple of pics of Shaggy and Eatnlive has very clear photos of Shaggy, Na'Sha and Cyndi Lauper as well as Same old Brand New me-17 on which you can see Cyndi Lauper wearing Shaggy's hat.
There are also Shaggy & Cyndi Lauper pictures at the Singfest galleries by Faith and Adigal.Cyndi Lauper Source, a Cyndi Lauper fan site, has a large number of pictures of the Shaggy & Cyndi Lauper duet, as well of a review of what fans who attended the concert wrote (I think I linked them as well). Niquey has a picture of Shaggy & Cyndi Lauper making funny faces and a pic of Shaggy on his concert without Cyndi. Freya has a couple of large pictures of Shaggy, Tony Gold, Michael Fletcher and the rest of the band.
And then there are also reviews without pictures of Shaggy. Both Snapdroplock and Lover suicide write that Shaggy's show was a blast; Gunz writes that Shaggy brought the atmosphere to a new high, he livened up the show and he got many people who were sitting down before to dance to his music. Ah, Shaggy knows how to get a crowd go wild, doesn't he?
Shaggy and Cyndi Lauper performing Girls Just Wanna Have Fun together live at the Singfest 2007 in Fort Canning Park, Singapore. Wild, bad, crazy, what else can I say but "wow, what a great performance"!

Shaggy will be in Ghana and Liberia for the next three days, but there are some more live videos from the Singfest 2007 festival in Fort Canning Park, Singapore, that I'd like to share. The audience loved Shaggy's performance as well as the duets by Shaggy and Cyndi Lauper when she called him on stage (it is actually being called the highlight of the Singfest 2007),. Here are some more videos of the concert! Also, there's another nice review and a picture of Shaggy at Face Kontroll.

Before we get to the videos, here are a couple of reviews and pictures of Shaggy & crew as well as Shaggy & Cyndi Lauper live in concert on August 8, Day 1 of the Singfest 2007 festival in Fort Canning Park, Singapore. Rubenerd has two pics of Shaggy and writes that the Cyndi Lauper & Shaggy combo was pretty good. There's another review of the Singfest 2007 by Tabula Rasa and Debaserr. Most festival goers agree that the Shaggy and Cyndi Lauper duo performance was the highlight of the evening. Natasha Yong who also like the Shaggy & Cyndi Lauper collaboration has a lot of pictures and weetzdomtooth says the crowd was totally sold after Shaggy & Cyndi Lauper dueted together - he also has a pic of Shaggy just like User Sin LJ.
Pictures courtesy of Natasha Yong: Cyndi Lauper calls Shaggy on stage and the crowd loves it. Scroll down for the videos and lots more content including a lot about Shaggy's new 2007 album Intoxication that has just been released in Japan

And I can’t remember last night

Ain’t never gonna drink again

August 1 Part II - Shaggy live video and interview video at Rototom Sunsplash 2007
Shaggy's wild, enthusiastic performance at the Rototom Sunsplash 2007 was a big success and there are even more videos of it online now! First of all, there's an interview video of Shaggy singing Boombastic at the sound check which is followed by an interview. In the interview, Shaggy compares the success of his music in Europe, the rest of the world and the U.S., he speaks about freedom of speech, he tells he's against violence and gives his opinion on the current situation in Iraq, his experiences in the first Gulf War and the current global refugee problems and he also tells more about his upcoming 2007 album Intoxication and what the next single of his new album might be. Second, there is a live concert video of Shaggy, Rayvon, Na'Sha and Tony Gold performing Wild 2Nite, Hot Gal and Bashment Party.
Here are some quotes:
"I think everybody has an opinion and a right to an opinion. I'm not condoning any acts of violence towards any human being. Inflicting any kind of harm towards any other human being is wrong. It gets us nowhere. You should be able to say what you wanna say, nobody should be chastised for their opinions. "
"Music for me is spreading love and happiness to people."
"My new album is entitled Intoxication, it is produced by Tony Kelly, Sting International, Robert Livingston, Christopher Birch, to name a few, featuring a song by Sizzla Kalonji and Collie Buddz, Akon on Give Me Some Blessings On It (on the Japanese track listing it is called What's Love), a song with Shaggy and Rayvon of course, a Shaggy and Rik Rok collaboration called Bonafide Love which probably will be our next hit single, so all is well."

August 1 Part I - Elephant Man's new album Let's Get Physical
Shaggy will be featured on the new album Let's Get Physical by fellow Jamaican dancehall artist Elephant Man. The album, which is to be released in the first week of November, contains the track The Way We Roll (remix) by Elephant Man featuring Shaggy and Busta Rhymes . Elephant Man's long overdue album (he was said to release an album called Ova Di Wall years ago, which would also have The Way We Roll Remix featuring Busta Rhymes and Shaggy and maybe P. Diddy on it, wasn't released, Elephant Man signed to P. Diddy's Bad Boy records and is now releasing his new album on Bad Boy) can be seen here, you can also listen to part of the track with Shaggy if you click on the third track on that page.
The song was already released on mixtape last year so here are part of the lyrics of the beginning, Shaggy's part and the end of the song [no copyright infringement intended]. I'm not sure whether the song on Ele's upcoming album will be exactly the same as the song I have, but anyway:
"[Ele, Shaggy and Busta Rhymes] It's the remix!
This is the way we roll
Everybody, let me see you clap
Everybody, let me see you clap (hey)
Everybody, let me see you clap
This is the way we roll
Everybody, everybody let me see you roll
Everybody, everybody let me see you roll
Elephant Man, Busta Rhymes now, Shaggy!
(Keep moving) Everybody, this is the way we roll!
[Ele] Well Wi want everybody fi throw dem up yep
