Droop Lion impresses at Marley’s birthday event
Reggae firebrand artiste Droop Lion delivered a great performance at last Thursday's 75th birthday celebrations held at the Bob Marley Museum.
Dressed in a green and yellow outfit emblazoned with marijuana leaves, the singer was a bundle of energy as he hit the stage singing Kata.
He followed up that song with his hit song, Freeway.
"Bob Marley should be a national hero," he declared, during his performance to several cheers from an enthusiastic audience. He closed his set with Pray for Dem.
He is now in the studio where he is working with Toots Hibbert, who is producing, writing and composing several tracks for the young artiste.
Droop will open for Hibbert when the icon returns to mainland Europe and the United Kingdom in May as part of the Toots and the Maytal's farewell tour.
"Toots Hibbert is a real international icon, so I am looking forward to this tour on a monumental scale because of what it will mean for reggae music," said Droop.
Droop is known for the singles such as Screaming and Freeway, which was inspired by the 2010 Tivoli Gardens incursion.
