It’s been more than a minute since the king of dancehall reggae stopped into the Big Apple.
King Yellowman will make good on a promise to return with a concert in Queens where he will join veteran reggae names U-Roy, Josey Wales, Johnny Osbourne, Brigadier Jerry, Luciano, Muma Nancy, Charlie Chaplin, General Trees and Michigan & Smiley.
Billed “Reewind & Come Again” the fifth annual showcase promises a reunion of old-school 80s reggae talents.
“King Yellowman is the perfect addition to the ‘Reeewind & Come Again’ event and brand,” producer Garfield “Chin” Bourne of Irish and Chin said.
“Not only is he one of reggae music’s biggest stars, he is a profound lyricist and toaster.”
The event producer added: “Yellowman’s presence on the stage further solidifies the event’s impact.
The internationally acclaimed deejay is revered as ‘Jamaica’s first dancehall superstar.’
With 50 albums to his credit, Yellowman has also released hundreds of singles. Throughout the 1980s, he scored hits with “Yellowman Getting Married,” “Mad Ova Me,” “Zungguzungguguzungguzeng,” “Nobody Move Nobody Get Hurt” and many more.
