Jamaican artists arrive for Saturday night concert

Story PictureHer last concert in Belize was the biggest show to hit the stage at the Belize City Centre in the last year. That’s right, Tanya Stephens is back in town, joining fellow performers Gyptian and Vybz Cartel. News Five’s Janelle Chanona caught up with the “Three the Hardway” for a preview of the big event.

Tanya Stephens, Artist
?The most requests I?ve actually had are for two songs. ?These streets,? and ?me and you that?. That?s what everybody is saying I better perform, so I guess if I don?t sing those I wa really need fu race back to the airport quick from the stage.

?On every occasion I have to say thanks. Thanks very much for the support. I mean as I said before people have choices and I am not one of the artists that can ever forget that. The fact that people actually pick up my stuff, however, they pick it up, whatever format, I no care the fact that they actually listen to it, sign to it, know it, and see me and say hi, ask for an autograph. These are things, I am actually grateful for. It?s not a bother to take a picture, not a problem to sign an autograph and definitely not a problem to say hi, or to stop and chat no bother at all. I am very grateful for these things. Because they can walk pass, they could not care, so thanks.?

Stephens, Gyptian and Vybz Kartel will be at the Palm Island nightclub tonight for an autograph ceremony. And tomorrow night they will do their “Fully Loaded Mother’s Day Bash” at the City Centre.
