It seems Ugandans just love Jamaican Reggae singer Chronixx. Even after two hours of his energetic and exciting live performance at the Pulse Jam Festival last Saturday the 29th of June, revellers were heard asking for more.
The wait had been long and finally the fans’ thirst to watch the Jamaican (26) perform was quenched last night at Sheraton Hotel Gardens courtesy of MTN and Talent Africa who organised this festival
After a wowing performance from veteran Reggae Legend Madoxx Sematimba who was the last local artiste to curtain raise for the main act, the Zinc Redemption Band boys (Chronixx’s Band) took to stage to do the sound checking as the impatient revellers fidgeted to get the right positions in order to watch him live and direct.
Clad in a coloured kitenge shirt, sky blue pants and a pair of black sneakers, Chronixx finally took to the stage at a few minutes past 10 PM (10:14 PM) to be exact, while skanking to his ‘Alpha And Omega’ tune and this was like a fresh start of the show.
Among other songs he sang from his two albums ‘Dread And Terrible’ and ‘Chronology’ were ‘Here Comes Trouble’, ‘Eternal Fire’, ‘Roots And Chalice’, ‘Ain’t Giving In’, ‘They Don’t Know’, ‘Queen Majesty’, ‘Skanking Sweet’, ‘Black Is Beautiful’, ‘Smile Jamaica’, ‘Capture Land’, ‘Loneliness’, ‘Spanish Town’, ‘Who Knows’ collabo with Protoje, ‘Jah Is There’, ‘Spirulina’, ‘Sell My Gun’, ‘Likes’,‘Clean Like A Whistle’ and finally ‘Legend’ at 2 minutes past midnight
He had a good connection with crowd and was several times heard asking, ‘are you ready to go home Ugandans?’. The reply was of course ‘no’ because the crowd was in a frenzy from the time the 26-year-old came to the stage until he took the last step off the stage.
The other exciting thing about his performance was the rare Rasta skanking dance moves he was seen pulling on stage.
Before Chronixx there ware action packed performances from local artistes and Djs who warmed up the crowd like K S Alpha who kicked off the performances at a quarter past 6 PM, Kent and Flosso (Voltage Music), Nutty Neithan, Beenie Gunter, Cindy and Band, Rabadaba, Benon, Nina Roz, Vampino, Weasel and veteran Reggae singer Madox Sematimba
Attendees were entertained by not only artistes but also live Dj mixes from Djs Aludah,Ciza, Naselow,Jo, LL and Ras Brown.
