As the curtains come down on this year's World Champions in London, England. Where our athletes and the Jamaican culture took centre-stage. A lot of attention was placed on the island and its cultural impact and Reggae luminary Nesbeth was among a select group chosen as part of the undertaking to represent brand Jamaica on the global stage.
The singer and his band on Friday night (August 11th) made their debut at Britain's Indigo (O2 Arena) for the 2017 staging of 'Jamaica House' where he delivered an illustrious performance alongside compatriots Jesse Royal and reggae royalty Ziggy Marley. During a compelling set which earned him an encore, Nesbeth also used the opportunity to pay tribute to victims of the Grenfell Tower Fire, which claimed the lives of over eighty persons.
Prior to his departure off stage, the 'My Dream' hitmaker said, "It's my first time performing inside the O2 Arena and it was indeed a 'Success Story' thank you to the organisers, The Jamaican Government, Jamaica Tourist Board, London and all the people for this great opportunity".
Event organiser, Rob Hallett also lauded Nesbeth's inclusion stating, "He was exceptional, we have a full house here and he was one of the best acts. I am definitely looking forward to seeing him back in England very soon".
Sponsored by the Ministry of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport in association with the Jamaica Tourist Board the week long festivities which ran from August 5-13 was held to commemorate the island's 55th Independence and to celebrate the legacy of Usain Bolt and the exploits of your athletes.
Still, in the United Kingdom, Nesbeth is expected to return to the island in the coming days for a performance this Sunday at the Marcus Garvey celebrations hosted by Irie FM before resuming work on his debut album. Plans are also afoot for the official video release for 'Success Story', a thought provoking composition produced by Foota Hype Music. The visual was shot by RD Studios and will mark the singer's third visual offering since the start of 2017.
Neseth next international assignment will be in Houston, Texas in October.
