Hosted by GT Taylor from Irie Fm, the launch started with words from the State Minister for Tourism and Entertainment, the Honorable Damion Crawford. The Minister emphasized the importance of music and entertainment to Jamaica’s cultural landscape and noted that he himself was an avid fan of Mr Vegas’ music. Other speakers included; noted producers, Mikey Bennett and Cleveland Brownie and CEO for Headline Entertainment, Jerome Hamilton.
Mr Vegas also gave young talent the opportunity to shine; newcomer Jah Lil and Mr Vegas Music recording artiste – Latty J started off the performances before Mr Vegas took to the stage and gave the crowd a fantastic showcase.
Presenting a little over half of the material on the new album, Mr Vegas, backed by the Warrior Love band, gave the audience a real sense of the new material, tracks like ‘My jam ‘Who Rule’ ‘God Good’ “Hallelujah’ and ‘Mr Shotta’. Even those hearing these tracks for the first time were quite impressed with the quality of the production.
