Festival Song participant injured in crash
Rob Diesel, a wild-card participant in the 2019 Jamaica Cultural Development Commission (JCDC) Festival Song Competition, suffered minor injuries during a car crash that took place on the border of New York City and New Jersey.
"I had just dropped off my daughter, and my son was with me in the vehicle. While driving in a downpour of rain, the car skidded and ended up in bushes," said Diesel.
His Ford F-150 was extensively damaged.
Diesel, who is a member of deejay Spragga Benz's Red Square crew, recently performed at Buju Banton's Long Walk to Freedom concert in Barbados.
He is known for the hit Fulla Gyal.
Diesel's entry in the JCDC Festival Song competition is titled Jamaica.
