    Dancehall recording artiste Khago delivered a virtuoso performance at Ballas Splash at Linval Lawn in St. Thomas over the weekend, showing that he is ready to take up his place as one of the top acts in dancehall today. 
When the Tun Up the Ting artiste arrived in the venue with a large entourage of cars, and security personnel, one person shouted out: "Ah Khago bus that."
Then patrons began to stream inside the venue, anticipating the performance of the deejay, who has dominated headlines over the past two weeks because of his ongoing lyrical feud with Sizzla. 
The show started a few minutes after 2 p.m. with Potential Kidd taking the stage where he got a few forwards with Urgency and A Yah Suh Nice. 
Then Zamunda hit the stage, using his great voice to good effect on 'Jah Surround Me'. Then it was time for the Skywalker. When the emcee announced that he was next, 
a surge of excitement ran through the crowd like an electric wire. Then when the instrumental for 'Blood a Boil' blared through the speakers, the crowd roared
its approval. 
He then ran out singing mi Blood A Boil, prancing across the stage with great energy.
He then declared 'Mi Nah Mek Dem Change My Energy' before pausing to speak to the crowd.
"Big up St. Thomas, big up Judgement Yard, and big up Bankie, big up Demus, ah oonu help buss me," the diminutive entertainer said.
He then performed 'Energy' again, his soulful voice filling the venue, and several lighters went up.
He then changed the tone of his performance, taking a swipe at Sizzla but not calling his name. 
"Big up Judgement Yard, but yu have some bwoy ah wash man pants....anno gallis dem, anno gallis dem," he said, as he did the intro his
top ten dancehall hit, Tax Inna My World.
He then paused again, saying "Beenie Man himself tell me say the gal dem love me, so ah de so my ting de'. Then the instrumental of 
'Tun Up De Ting' blasted out of the speakers and the girls screamed.
Khago then got one of the biggest forwards for the night with his number one hit, 'Tun up the Ting". The crowd roared its approval and lighters
flickered throughout the whole venue as the forward swelled to the four corners of the venue. He pulled up the song and did it from top, the girls 
screaming at the front, and grabbing at his legs of his jeans.
"Big up Sizzla, Elephant Man, Vybz Kartel and Bounty Killer, respect to all elders, but man ah 'rottenhead', ah my time now," he said.
Then he performed 'Nutten (Come outta mi way)' to loud cheers. 
Other entertainers such as Bounty Killer, Macka Diamond, Jah Cure and Elephant Man also performed.
