Reggae rocker Omari Banks delivered a great performance at Dwayne Bravo's annual signature event, 47 to benefit the Book Buddy programme and the Blind Cricket Association of Trinidad and Tobago.

Named after Dwayne Bravo's international playing number, the star-studded event welcomed the WT20 West Indies champion team as well as members of the visiting Indian team among notable distinguished guests.

"It was a great event and I'm always happy to support anything that contributes meaningfully to the lives of people," Banks said.

The event unfolded at the stylish Estate 101, Maraval, Trinidad. He got a great ovation for songs such as his recent radio hit, System Set, More Than Friends and Me and You.

The reggae singer is always eager to lend his voice to a notable cause. "The Book Buddy Programme and the Blind Cricketers Association of Trinidad definitely inspire hope and being a part of this event with colleagues was both fun and meaningful one," he said.

It was his first major performance in Trinidad, and he got the chance to catch up with his old cricket mates. "Dwayne Bravo has always been a shinning light and positive force. I salute him in the endeavor, It's great to see him 'Champion' such a great cause," Omari Banks said.
