Impressions: Sizzla “Unplugged and Acoustics” in Kingston, JA

Words and Photos by Martei Korley—

LargeUp doesn’t ordinarily report on stage shows but the event billed as “Sizzla Unplugged and Acoustics” was the artist’s first show in Jamaica since his much publicized bike accident last year. The fact that he would be supported by the original Firehouse Crew and Sly and Robbie made it apparent—we had to be there. The event also served as a launch of the Sizzla Youth Foundation, an ambitious charitable undertaking by the man himself seeking to uplift youth worldwide. It may surprise you to know that the first donation for same came from no other than Popcaan to the tune of $50,000 Jamaican dollars. Kudos for that!
