Shaggy and Friends charity concert concluded on Saturday night with thrilling performances from several of the billed acts. Among them were Ding Dong, Sean Kingston, Shaggy, Rayvon, Ashanti, Popcaan, and R City.

OMI received strong audience support for singles Cheerleader and Hula Hoop. The singer, who climbed the Billboard charts in 2015, was lauded by Shaggy for his work and was even introduced by the veteran, who is no stranger to Billboard success himself.

Shaggy also handled production and MC duties. The Bombastic singer received roars of approval for songs such as It Wasn't Me, I Need Your Love, among others.

Nadine Sutherland and deejay Terror Fabulous took patrons on a trip down memory lane with a slew of hits.

Terror Fabulous, who has been troubled with illness over the years, started his set with Jah Works and immediately had patrons chanting the lyrics. Fabulous followed with Drop It Cool, among other songs, before he was joined by Sutherland. They performed Anything For You and their duet, Action, as patrons sang along.

American singer Sean Kingston also had patrons singing along to hits such as Beautiful Girls, Beat It, Fire Burning, and Letting Go. Self-proclaimed princess of R&B Ashanti had ladies in the audience belting out the lines to hit records like Foolish and Always On Time.

Iconic group En Vogue impressed loyal fans with their seemingly timeless vocals. They also saved the best for last, making their exit with the popular single, Don't Waste Your Time.

Gospel artiste Kevin Downswell was performing at the show for the first time, and tried his best to make a lasting first impression. The popular single Stronger was received relatively well.

Popcaan delivered a clean set and had patrons chanting lines from Way Up and Give Thanks, among others. His performance with the live band also showed tremendous growth.

Also on the line-up were Bugle, Beenie Man, Ity and Fancy Cat, Tanto Metro and Devonte.
