Sting pulled thousands of patrons to Jamworld in Portmore last night.
The stage show, which is perennially marred by controversy and simultaneously buoyed by it, was true to form when dancehall artistes Popcaan and Ryno were involved in a physical altercation on stage.
On a night which was built on the foundation of dancehall feuds, it took reggae acts like I Wayne and Lutan Fire to cool things down with some positive reggae music after some patrons became understandably edgy.
Busy Signal who was doing his first local performance since incarceration in the United States was given an award by CEO of Downsound Records, Joe Bogdanovich.
According to the businessman, Busy Signal is a dancehall game changer.
Busy Signal validated the compliment by delivering a strong set in which he delved into dancehall, reggae and gospel music.
Patrons were also captivated by Busy's tales of horror from prison.
"I wouldn't want my worst enemy to go to prison," Busy Signal said.
Romain Virgo also gave a good representation of himself, standing among heavy weights such as Sizzla and Chuck Fenda who also did well.
Virgo had the patrons jumping and singing to his popular songs, while taking the opportunity to expose two new talents.
The highly-anticipated tag team clash which saw KipRich and Ninja Man going up against Merciless and Tony Matterhorn did not disappoint.
KipRich ignored his teammate and took on Merciless and Tony Matterhorn in an incident-free battle.
KipRich reigned supreme.
Having swept aside Merciless and Tony Matterhorn, KipRich then directed his lyrics at Ninja Man who defended himself valiantly, the end result was a draw, with Ninja Man proclaiming he was merely testing his offspring.
