Jahmiel, Bounty Killer to perform at Carrot Bay

Left to right – Skinny Fabulous, Jahmiel, and Bounty Killer

The Carrot Bay Cultural Fiesta to be held on August 10 and 11 has taken on new life with the addition of three major international artistes – Bounty Killer and Jahmiel from Jamaica, as well as Skinny Fabulous from St Vincent and the Grenadines.

Those three additions to the line-up will perform on Friday, August 11. Jahmiel, at 24 years old, is a standout with his repertoire of positive Reggae songs including True Colours, Strongest Soldier, and Gain The World. Bounty Killer, in the meantime, is one of the most powerful Dancehall stars of the 1990s. He also groomed Vybz Kartel and Mavado.

Other artistes previously announced to perform on the second night of the event includes Patrice Roberts from Trinidad and Tobago. Prior to those performances, the Carrot Bay Fiesta will come alive with cultural activities such as donkey races.

Meanwhile, as was previously announced, the artistes who will perform on the first night of the event (Thursday, August 10) include Haitian band T-Vice, Triple Kay out of Dominica, and Stylee Band from St. Croix. Before the stage show, there will also be the opening ceremony as well as the Oliver ‘Oli’ Turnbull Fishermen’s Tournament.

      Good line up my behind, Carrot bay should lead the way with our cultural show casing, not trying to compete with town, don’t know why the people of that community don’t stand up against that foolishness, the village setting is the ultimate, what a waste of money and time.

      Imagine Stanly and the 10 sleepiness Knights, Jamsie and the happy Seven, lashing Dogs etc., but then again we BVI people are a shame of our culture anyway!

        The cultural events throughout Tortola are poorly attended. They always have the fungi music with about only 10 people in the village to support.

        Town does have a fisherman tournament or donkey races etc? At the end of the day, all fungi bands will never fill up that village and pay the bills and the poor booths full of food will take a loss.

        Do yuh homework and stop talking stupidness. By the way you attended the mango array Friday? Fool.

      You are inaccurate!!

      There is actually FAR more Soca than Reggae.

      I guess you are judging because the media and the people are more excited about reggae.

      You sound bad minded, get over it. Admission fee is alone to pay these international artistes, It is no big cost to government.

    This by far the best line up ever seen in Carrot Bay.

    Thanks Judy.

    You will need a bigger venue.

    Two observations:

    Note: This is not a comment against the larger Jamaican diaspora.

    It appears that the BVI is a place where Jamaican artist can come to and make a quick buck. The American dollar appears to be quite a draw. Every year, Jamaican artist leads the way.

    Second, does anyone who invite these people to the BVI check their backgrounds? For example, one quick google search and here is what I found:

    Bounty Killer:

    “Price was arrested twice at the annual Reggae Sumfest: he was arrested but not charged in a 2001 altercation with another performer and arrested and charged in 2008 for using profanity during his performance.

    He was also arrested on 3 February 2009 after allegedly running seven traffic lights in Kingston, Jamaica, and charged with refusal to take a breathalyzer test and disobeying red lights.

    Price was arrested by police in June 2006 and charged with assaulting the mother of his child. According to the Jamaica Star, “The complainant was allegedly punched in the face several times, dragged some distance away and her head slammed into a wall.”

    “In 2003, Price canceled two of his concerts after the LGBT magazine Outrage! petitioned Scotland Yard for his arrest, claiming songs about bashing gays[6] would incite harassment against the gay community.”

    Nice bio, huh. These are the artist the BVI are welcoming with open arms. Only in the BVI do we allow any Tom, Dick, and Harry to come to our shores without question, and when crap hits the fan, people turn around and wonder what happened. If something kicks off with this guy while he is here, the warning signs were there and apparently ignored.

        Please. That is his record past or present. He owns it. I did not invent it. With that record, I would bet he has a hard time booking gigs in the US or U.K.

        Of course with people like you supporting him, the BVI is a safe gig because as I said some of us accept any Tom, Dick, and Harry. Hell, people steal and kill around here, and they always have supporters.

        As for as who is without sins casting the first stone, I feel ok trowing my stones. I have never been arrested in my life for anything, always been law abiding, and I dont have baby mommas whom I have punched in their faces and dragged by their hair in the streets.

        I dont run stop lights either or have been suspected of drunk driving leading cops to stop or ask me to take a bretalyzer. So, yes, I am in a good position to throw my stones.

        You’re defence of this guy speaks more to your character than mine.

            I have said it before and I say it again. The (B)VI is the septic tank of the upper Caribbean Islands.

            Anything anyone comes in and we pay them money to do so…his fans will be front and center during our August celebration mocking and jeering at us.

            St Vincent? Are you referring to that island with the gift to the VI of two gruesome hacking murders in the past three months? But of course, a great match him and them.
