Elephant Man's set cut short at Chug It

Dancehall artiste Elephant Man, the self-proclaimed 'Energy God', had his set cut short at the popular Rumbar Chug It beach party at Sugarman's Beach in Hellshire last Sunday.

It was not clear what the cause was, but he told the crowd he loved them and stepped off the stage after about 10 minutes into his set.

He received forwards for an intro and song that gave 'big-ups' and demanded the release of dancehall artistes Buju Banton and Vybz Kartel from behind bars.

The Higher Level hitmaker asked the crowd if they wanted dancing songs and most said yes. He obliged, and things seemed to be okay until his set ended abruptly. Q45, Ele's manager, said, "He (Ele) was supposed to work for 20 minutes, but he only stayed 10 minutes because a patron threw rum in his eyes. He told patrons that they could throw water on him, but he didn't expect them to throw rum in his face."

He also explained that Elephant Man was booked for another Rumbar Chug It event later this year in Montego Bay, and fans could look out for a stellar performance there.

Earlier, the crowd was given a treat by disc jocks Ikel Marvlus, DJ Chrome, and Flabba Dabba as they used witty lyrics to ignite the crowd.
