Good Sumfest for Rickt Teetz
Fast-rising dancehall artiste Rickey Teetz made his third consecutive performance at Dancehall Night at the prestigious Reggae Sumfest 2016 in Montego Bay, and he made quite an impression.
Hitting the stage dressed in white jeans, a Burberry shirt, and a burgundy leather jacket, Teetz got an ovation from the audience as he did Partially Right, and then he paused to inject a sombre note as he introduced his popular Lighters Up song, which deals with the death of a loved one. Then he delivered Real Link
and fire torches stabbed at the night air.
He showed good stamina and stage presence as he communicated with the audience throughout his set. While the band played a soca-dancehall rhythm, he upped the energy level inside the venue and got a decent forward for Physically as he worked every square inch of the stage.
Earlier this year, Teetz landed a major collaboration, Holding Firm, with dancehall star I-Octane. The song got rave reviews from
music critics and fans alike and increased Teetz's profile in the Caribbean as well as in inter-national markets.
"The song is getting a good buzz in Trinidad and Guyana. It is about never giving up regardless of where you come from or what's going on in your life. The feedback from this collaboration has been just spectacular so far and the fans say this a genuine song that they can relate to," Teetz said.
