MAVADO This Is The One Room Shack I Grew Up In, Not Showing Off On Beenie
Mavado was the headlining act at last weekend’s Rebel Salute Music Festival in St. Ann, Jamaica. The dancehall hitmaker performed on the show as David Brooks, delivering a solid performance of his more conscious hits.
The dancehall hitmaker is currently back on Jamaican soil after spending two years overseas due to immigration issues. This marks Mavado’s first performance in his homeland in over two years.
Patrons told Urban Islandz that his set was well received by a massive crowd gathered inside the venue.
Check out some highlights of his performance below.
Mavado is finally back on Jamaican soil after over two years overseas. The dancehall hitmaker now lives in Florida but was unable to travel back home due to some immigration issues.
The “So Special” singjay says all of that is now out the way and he is free to travel to and from his homeland. The singjay sat down with Winford Williams for a candid interview about returning home, as well as, his beef with Beenie Man and Bounty Killer.
“Beenie, nothing can’t go on with me and Beenie, me and Beenie are not in the same league,” Mavado said when asked about his feud with the dancehall icon. “Beenie himself knows that. I did a song that said ‘better them chill like the Doc and go simmer’ remember its he who said sim simma.”
Mavado also sound off on his long standing feud with Bounty Killer, as well as, addressed Killer’s statement about buying his father casket.
“At the end of the day I can’t hate him no matter what happen even if we don’t deal for the longest time,” Mavado told Winford.
Mavado also added that if Vybz Kartel was freed he would be making a lot of money and have a mansion next door to his.
Mavado came from humble beginnings to become a global dancehall star with one of the most expensive house in Jamaica.
News surfaced recently claiming that the dancehall hitmaker is responding to Beenie Man with photos of his mansion overlooking Kingston. But the singjay told us that he would never show off on Beenie Man with his house because he remembers where he is coming from.
“I grew up in the ghetto in a one room shack and now I am here with a mansion in the sky,” he said. “Why would I show off on another man with material things. I am just living my dreams and reaping the fruits of my hard work over the year.”
A few months ago Mavado posted a photo of the house that he spent part of his childhood in.
“Years ago I stay in this house in the country side like over 20 years ago my sister and Breda family thanks for the experience as a kid,” the “So Special” singer said.
