Jimmy Cliff Interview, plus Beenie Man in Sierra Leone

November 22, 2010 § 1 Comment

OK, Promised to bring you some Jimmy Cliff video after his recent performance in Freetown, Sierra Leone. Only a brief clip is available right now (it takes quite a while to FTP that hi-def video). Many thanks to our crew over there for grabbing Jimmy Cliff right after his rousing performance in front of the crowd at the ECOWAS Peace Pageant 2010. With his hat pulled over his eyes, he does look like he’s ready to hit the pillows! But he still managed to talk with Zoe Hamilton about being in Sierra Leone and his message for the youth.

So this past weekend another reggae artist made it to Sierra Leone: Beenie Man.

His was part of a two-week tour of the African continent that includes Cape Town and Johannesburg in South Africa. Here are some photos from the show, held at the National Stadium in Freetown. Rain threatened the event early on, probably preventing it from being sold out, but that never stopped a major mash-up!

Beenie Man is working on a combination project which he calls “Beenie Man and Friends,” in which he collaborates with eight different artists. You can find out more about that project here. As the holiday season approaches, more big name artists are slated to hit the African continent in a huge way. Stay tuned for more info from Afrofusion Lounge and Afrofusion TV. Bless…
