  His compelling mix of culture, roots and reality songs is set to light up Negril's MX3 on February 5, when rising Rastafarian singer Droop Lion, will engage audiences on the eve of the birthday of reggae icon, Bob Marley.  
Droop Lion says he feels honoured to play a role in the week-long tribute to Bob Marley, whose birthday is February 6, and notes that he intends to put his best foot forward as he makes a spiritual connection with the reggae legend. Conscious of  his own place in the future growth and development of reggae music, Droop Lion is imbued with a strong sense of respect for all the elder statesmen in the business. He declares that he is a student, not only of Marley, but of every reggae artiste who has paved the way and on whose shoulders he now stands.

“Bob Marley is the person who has inspired a whole generation of reggae artistes, myself included. His legacy, musically and otherwise, spans the globe and this is especially significant. And there are many other singers and players of instruments who are right up there with Bob and who are also deserving of respect and gratitude. Naturally, I am more than pleased to be part of this movement to pay honour to Robert Nesta Marley,” the Free People Entertainment artiste stated.
Droop Lion has been maintaining a strong presence with thought-provoking songs like Freeway, Pray For Them, Mama Soon Come Back and Gun Powder. He notes,“ My music is down-to-earth and cultural. There's always a message in it. It's like a medicine to society's sickness."
Other artistes scheduled to perform on the February 5 event are the Messenjah Luciano, Iba Mahr, Raging Fyah, Justice Merchant, Robin Banks, Tanya P, Sugar Dee and Ali P. Backing band will be Streetwise.
