Roots-reggae fans will be treated to a virtuoso performance by reggae artiste Nichelous tonight at the Reggae Vybes Dub School, an event centred around roots-reggae and rockers music.   
The event will be held at Stone's Throw at 1B Mannings Hill road between 7 and 10 p.m. 
"I am looking forward to performing in front of my fans, the patrons can look for a performance heavy on roots. Word sound is power," the artiste whose real name is Nicholas Fearon, said. 
He recorded his first song, 'Rise Marcus Garvey', for the Bonner Cornerstone label in 2012 and has not looked back since. That song, 
 a tribute to the Pan African giant and Jamaica's first National Hero who died in 1940, remains one of his most enduring songs.
"He wasn't only talking about black pride, but the importance of self-reliance which couldn't be more relevant today. If I got the teachings of Marcus Garvey in school I would be a better man today," Nichelous said. 
Nichelous worked hard to hone his craft and overcome his fear of performing in front of a live audience. He has performed on several shows all over the world, but prefers to perform at events with a cultural slant. 
"My favourite performance was 2017 at the Jamaica Independence Gathering in Aruba," he said. 
Nichelous is from Spanish Town, an area with a rich music heritage, built around sound systems and independent producers
Though he performed on talent shows and hung around the Earth Shaker sound system, he never officially launched a music career, leaving for Aruba where he has worked as a bartender since 1997.
"I strive for a balance between work, family and music. It becomes more difficult as time passes so I tried to involve my wife and my kids in my music as much as possible so in that way we all spend time together," he said. 
Nichelous says that as an entertainer, one of his favourite things is the joy of the interaction with fans who respond to his music. 
"I am a very simple man very approachable I appreciate every fans I love to respond to they're message and they're comment love to perform live for them. When people see me in the street and tell me this song or that song was very inspiring for them that is my favourite part of being an artiste," he said. 
Nichelous is best know for 'Rise Marcus' but he has solidified  decent following in the roots-reggae community with other singles such as 'Jah I Need You', and 'False Hair'.
