Shaggy pleased with show outcome despite issues with Lauryn Hill

Dancehall mega star, Orville Burrell, more popularly known as Shaggy, believes his charity event, Shaggy and Friends resulted in success despite a few problems involving one of the show’s headline acts.

The third edition of Shaggy and Friends took place this past Saturday on the lawns of Jamaica House in Kingston. The show included several strong performances from local and overseas acts such as Eve, Deniece Williams, Maxi Priest, Beres Hammond and Romain Virgo, amongst several others. Shaggy also performed at various intervals alongside Tarrus Riley, Tessanne Chin and others.

However, former Grammy-winning singer/rapper, Lauryn Hill, who closed out the show, drew mixed reactions from what was regarded as the show’s largest crowd to date. A drawn out band change caused unrest amongst fans that waited an hour to see the former Fugees starlet grace the stage. Once she did arrive on stage, Hill expressed her dissatisfaction with the stage setup and continually restarted tracks during the first half of her set.
