It’s anybody’s guess what is really going to take place over JamWorld in Portmore tonight at Sting. A whopping 120 acts will showcase their talent … or lack thereof … on the Sting stage but many are wondering if there will be value for money.
Of course, there is the so-called clash between wannabe deejay, the graffiti don LA Lewis and the ‘fudgie’ with the limping career, Mr G (aka Goofy). Naturally, this one is gonna be unadulterated drama … theatre … slapstick comedy which has nothing at all to do with music. Truth be told, these two characters would have a better fit on Ragashanti’s Mix Up and Blenda Christmas Day show.
Naturally, this will play out during prime time, but after this, then what?
In the early stages, the organizers looked like they were promoting a clash between the Gaza and the Gully/Alliance, but when the peace treaty was ordered by the President and officially signed at West Kingston Jamboree, war seemed like a dismal prospect.
Laing and company had no choice but to jump on the peace bandwagon.
Then the man who “lend out him mercy and no get it back” started some rumblings. Merciless is desperate for a clash, but right now it doesn’t look as if there is anybody willing to clash with him.
Bounty, in a recent article, dismissed Merciless as the “Worse-forless” and said he had no intention of clashing with him. Bounty, instead, would clash with Kartel, “if the people say so”, but Kartel in a recent statement noted that all those who are coming to Sting to see him clashing with Bounty Killer should stay home.
And since Kartel and Mavado are friends, then that clash won’t materialize either.
So who’s really going to clash at Sting. Perhaps Stacious and Lisa Hye?
