The annual multi-cultural festival Best of The Best was a smashign success this 2018 despite an extremely last-minute venue change following multiple repots of pending inclement weather associated with Subtropical storm Alberto.
Stephen “DJ Jabba” Beckford told popular media houses, “To tell the truth, last year mi couldn’t sleep. It’s a bad bad piece a feeling to know that you put so much work into promoting an event for over nine months and you put in the work, plus so many people trod from all over the world because Best of the Best is not a local Florida show, the crowd come from everywhere — from Texas, right back to New York City, Canada, London, the whole Caribbean. And when you as a promoter, and promotion is your passion, want everything to go 150 per cent, yuh don’t even want 100. That’s why I couldn’t take a risk and deal with a disaster this year.”
He then concluded by telling a reporter of the Jamaica Observer, “After the weatherman a tell me so much things and God give me a warning a say ‘Bredda mi a go see what you going to do, if you are a yute who is greedy fi tings.’ ‘Cause if I was a greedy yute, mi woulda runn inna park and run risk, and I feel the devil would have made it rain on me. But mi pick God work and went indoors just to play if safe. We set up the place just as if it is outdoors then I come here today and the sun is shining. Remember every weatherman saying there would be heavy rainstorms and then look how beautiful the day was… Right now, mi just feel great. We rearranged this show and everybody helped us get the word out in three days and people still come full up the place. And the best thing is that every artiste performed — that is just a great joy fi me,”
Headliners of the success showcase were; Mavado, Capleton, Aidonia, Masicka, Richie Stephens, Bunji Garlin and Fay-Ann Lyons, and Ghost.
DJ Jabba also announced the dates for his highly anticipated “Love and Harmony Cruise” for 2019, but is keeping the details very tight lipped.
