The Gentleman Of Reggae Sumfest

The biggest Reggae Festival in the world has ended. The gentleman really stood out this year. Here are the top male performers. These guys really had the crowds mesmerized.......

Beenie Man: He's been referred to as the 'Girls Dem Sugar' but on Dancehall Night at Reggae Sumfest there was only one title that could fit, and that is 'King of the Dancehall'. The wiry entertainer was at his lyrical best.
Bounty Killer: He certainly was not cross, miserable, nor angry. Instead, this Alliance general showed a more mellow side resulting in his wooing the massive crowd that turned out for Dancehall Night.
Tarrus Riley: With a number of female-friendly tracks to his credit, Tarrus was able to woo that segment of his audience with ease and then convince all of the validity of his music. His set was well constructed and delivered and proved to be highly entertaining.
Ne-Yo: The large crowd on hand on Friday waited with eager anticipation for the performance from this talented artiste. Amidst cheers, he sang, danced and truly put on a show for his debut performance in Jamaica.
Junior Gong: This Marley is definitely the performer of the famous family. He stepped on stage and immediately electrified his audience holding their attention for the entire length of his performance.
Coco Tea: As an elder statesman in Reggaedom, he led by example, showing the younger acts a thing or two about performing on the Sumfest stage.
