BOUNTY FOR FOLLOW DI ARROW Featured

Bounty Killer will headline this year's Follow Di Arrow concert at James Bond Beach in St. Mary on March 2.   

 

The launch started with a prayer, and even in the prayer the organisers begged God to change the attitude of local entertainers to entertainment, in the process making them realise that they hold tremendous power and responsibility.
 
Promoter of the event Dexton Ennis took patrons on a trip down memory lane citing how the idea of hosting the first Follow Di Arrow brewed from a conversation with dancehall icon Bounty Killer. He also said he wants the now 13-year-old show to become a world product officially.
 
According to the promoter, local entertainers must be mindful what they do or say on the platform, because living in a globalised world means every country on earth is watching. He also commented on the dying stage show culture in Jamaica. He believes part of the problem has to do with the negative attitudes of some artistes and patrons. This negative attitude the promoter believes, hampers the participation of Corporate Jamaica in sponsoring stage shows.
 
"Follow Di Arrow is our show, the people show. Jamaica is a place where we should have a lot of shows but it's not so, therefore I decided to host it this year because I want it to go down as one of the long standing events in Jamaica," Ennis said.
 
Follow Di Arrow is slated to take place at James Bond Beach, Oracabessa, St Mary, on March 2, 2013. The event can also be streamed live via www.followdiarrowja.net.
 
Some of the artistes billed for the show are Bounty Killer, Elephant Man, Coco Tea, Freddie McGregor, Assassin, Sizzla, Fantan Mojah, I Wayne, Mr. Lexx, George Nooks, Wickerman, Nitty Kutchie,Flippa Maffia, Little Hero,Teflon, Droop Lion, Mr Vegas, I-Octane, Lady Saw, Lady G, Macka Diamond, Professor Nuts, Major Mackerel, Admiral Bailey, Burro Banton among others.
 
The MCs for the night will be Ragashanti, Sunshine and Sample Man, and the backing bands are Ruff Kut and Warrior Love.
 
Tickets for the event are being sold at $1,200 presold, $1,,500 at the gate and $2,500 VIP. For more information on the event, potential patrons can call 299-8692, email followdiarrow@gmail or log on to www.followdiarrowja.net.
