Another Jamaican act is slated to join Buju Banton on the 2019 staging of theSt Kitts Music Festival.
Popcaan has been announced as a performer on the event which is scheduled to be held at the Kim Collins Stadium at Bird Rock from June 27 to 29.
Speaking at a recent event, St Kitts’ Deputy Prime Minister Shawn Richards, who also has responsibility for culture, said the line-up for this year’s festival has strong appeal for persons across all age groups and demographics.
“The music festival caters for all. Even the prime minister attends the music festival, and he enjoys it,” Richards said. “From all of the feedback that has been gathered thus far, it appears to me as though this year’s music festival is going to be if not the best, one of the better music festivals held thus far,” Richards said.
Buju Banton was released from a US prison in December 2018, after doing an eight-year sentence on drug-related charges. He is one of the acts headlining the three-night event, and Deputy Prime Minister Richards noted that the reggae singer was contracted by the committee due to his ability to attract a large crowd. Drawing patrons is a key factor that goes into an artiste selection by the committee.
Other acts confirmed to appear include American-Nigerian singer Davido, Vincentian soca artiste Skinny Fabulous, American rapper French Montana, Bajan soca artiste Edwin Yearwood and Krosfyah. Confirmed acts such as American soul and pop singer Smokey Robinson, Trinidadian soca artiste Nadia Batson, and the local road march winners Small Axe Band.

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, Apr 8, CMC – The murder toll climbed to 127 for the year after six people were killed in separate incidents here over the last weekend, police have confirmed.
They said Peter Kurt Carrera, 37, and his 21-year-old girlfriend, Josanne Ragoonanan, were shot dead at the Diego martin home, west of here, by a gunman, who had earlier asked for a light to smoke a cigarette. Relatives said that the gunman had on Saturday night come to their home asking for a light to smoke a cigarette before asking for Kurt by name.
“When my family said she didn’t smoke, the man asked, ‘where Kurt?’ and she said he lives next door. He went next door and my family saw the man greeting Kurt. They greeted each other as though they knew one another,” the relative told reporters, adding that soon afterwards gunshots were heard.
Police are also probing the murder of 27-year-old Kareem Garcia, who was shot near his home in Morvant, along the east-west corridor on Saturday night.
Garcia was with a group of friends when gunshots were heard. He and two others were taken to the Port of Spain General Hospital, but Garcia was declared dead on arrival. The two others have been hospitalised with injuries to their lower back and left buttocks.
In another incident, a 22-year-old man was fatally stabbed by a woman during a heated argument in a bar. Police said Adrian “Tec” Grant was at the bar in Maraval, on the outskirts of the capital, when he got into an argument with the unidentified woman, who later fled the scene.
