Look here nuh man you see this man right here is one of the chosen ones. His music, his spirit, his mind is on a whole other level. I’m a day one fan of this King right here and when I tell you that the performance that he put on last night was an experience that touched the mind and the soul all at the same time.
The opening act, Kelissa, blessed the stage with her beautiful voice singing hits such as “How Many More” and even showcased her guitar skills which were phenomenal by the way.
Soon it was time for the man himself, hailing from Spanish Town Jamaica, Chronixx. He came out and immediately put the whole audience in a rhythmic trance with his dancing. The way he danced, flashing his locs; his hand and foot movement brought out a nostalgic feeling that was embedded in our genes ancestrally. We, our physical selves, didn’t necessarily moved like that but our ancestors did and passed it down to us metaphysically.
He graced us with hit after hit such as :
“Nah follow nobody”
“They Don’t Know”
“Roots and Chalice” My Fav ❤
Throughout his performance, he brought opening act, Kelissa back out and the two performed their hit single “Winna” and it was electrifying and filled with soul.
What I love about Chronixx is his ‘unapologetic-ness’. He is not afraid to share the truth and talk about the injustices that we as melanated people face around the world. During his performance he took the time to share a very important message. He talked about the Coral Gardens massacre that happened in Jamaica under white supremacist leader Alexander Bustamante. What was Good Friday for many yesterday was Bad Friday for the Rastafarian community caused by events that took place marked 52 years ago to date. P.M. Bustamante ordered to bring in all Rastas, dead or alive. Over 150 Rastas were arrested, jailed, beaten and tortured just because they refused to conform to Babylon and their twisted system. Indeed a very dark day. He further talked about how just 52 years ago it was a bad and very dangerous thing just being a Rasta. In today’s society, especially now more than ever a lot of people are treating locs as a fashion trend without knowing and appreciating the true meaning of what it is, the numerous battles that they fought and how significant it is.
