“I’ll be bringing ME. I’ll be doing me…bring people back to that nostalgic dancehall, hardcore…at the same time aggressive but clean”. Cobra told The Jamaican Gleaner
Following a 12 year absence from the festival, Cobra is looking forward to participating in what was awarded the greatest Reggae Festival of the year in 2016.
“Well, it’s a pleasure that’s long overdue. I see it fit to come and represent”.
He also praised organisers of the event for the move it has taken to abondon international night and focus soley on reggae and dancehall night. “We must eat what we grow!”
Cobra also has a word of advice for the young and upcoming artiste.
“It does not make sense to chase the limelight; it’s wise to just maintain your career. Once you do songs with substance, people will always love it; you don’t have to be the headliner on a show to go and do your best,” he said.
The weeklong festival is staged in Montego Bay, and begins on Sunday, July 16 with the Beach Party. The staple All-White Party at Pier One happens on Tuesday, July 18; Sumfest Blitz takes place on Wednesday, July 19 and the exciting Sumfest Heavyweight Clash will be held on Thursday, July 20 at Pier-One. The festival climaxes at the historic Catherine Hall on Friday, July 21 and Saturday, July 22 with live music featuring Sean Paul, Tory Lanez, Alkaline, Mavado, Queen Ifrica, Jah Cure, Sizzla and Christopher Martin among many others.
