Zamunda - File

At least 3,000 people showed up at S-Q Records' Street Festival in Discovery Bay, St Ann and were not disappointed as Zamunda was in top form, crooning his big reggae hits, 'Jah Love Surround Me' and 'Badder Than Dem'.

"Zamunda ripped the stage show. it was really impressive. a lot of people came out and they are still talking about the show. I am just sorry that Hurricane Sandy delayed the shipping of the bags, posters and other items that we had planned to give to the kids.

"To make up for that, the company had a jungle gym for the kids to play on. Food was cooked and was given out for free with juice for the kids. The Outlaw sound system did a great job, and everyone had a good time," Lucci Gabana, CEO of S-Q Records, said.

Other performers includedLittle Hero, PZed, Angele Smith, Loyal Flame, Vyper, Spanner Banner, Absolute, Seanizzle, Zamunda, Jermaine Michael, Chris Demontague and Noddy Virtue.

US-based radio personality Catman co-hosted the event alongside DJ Amber.

This was just one of the successful ventures that the indie record label has bankrolled in Jamaica. The label's CEO, who is also an artiste in his own right, vowedthat he would ensure the kids received their free Christmas presents once they arrive in the island early next month.

"On behalf of S-Q Records, and all affiliated with the Canadian recording company, we would like to thank all the members of the community of Discovery Bay, St Ann, who helped to make the first annual S-Q Records Street Festival a huge success," Gabana said.

"The children of the community willreceive their free Christmas presents and school supplies, courtesy of S-Q Records. We will make arrangements for the children to get their Christmas presents once they arrive.

"We would like to thank all of the artistes who showed up for the event. They will go down in history as the pioneers of the first annual S-Q Records Street Festival in St Ann, Jamaica.Next year, we're expecting even more people to show up. More artistes, more gifts and more giving back to the community," Gabana said.
