Duane Stephenson

A huge concert to mark the official opening of the B.T.L. Park is set for Valentine’s Day, this Friday. City Hall is planning a grand opening that will see a long list of local artists taking center stage starting at seven p.m. Preparations are near completion and today, the headliner for the show, Jamaican Reggae Soul Artist, Duane Stephenson arrived in the jewel. Stephenson is known for his big hits such as: Cottage in Negril, August Town and Think Twice…which are all time favorites in the region and Belize. Flocked by his entourage, Stephenson came to New Five studios along with PR Manager of the Belize City Council, Kenneth Morgan, to invite the public to the free concert.

“Always definitely I try to put my best foot forward. Of course, new music; good old favorites…it is a great concert. After what was said, I don’t have that much more to say. It is always nice to have a place where family can gather. When all this is done, family is the only true thing. So I’m looking forward to it and it has been a while. The love for this country has always been there; since I came here the first time, I fell in love with the place and that hasn’t changed. Everything that I do ahs to do with love and inspiration; that’s the kind of artist I am. But the show will have a broad objective definitely so that everyone can come. So no one leaves thinking I neva get my song. Don’t worry. Your song, chances are, it will be performed.”

“We have an all start lineup of Belizean artists including the band of the Year, Sweet Pain; the godfather of Punta rock, Chico Ramos; the young and upcoming Harlem Youths. We have Sharon Martinez, Veda, Consego, Taprick and a lot of artists will be out there performing and of course the star of the show, Duane Stephenson. It’s all a part of the council’s initiative to bring the people back to the parks and bring the parks back to life. For a while, for some years now, we have not seen the attendance and the participation of Belizean citizens in coming out and enjoying the park infrastructure that has been developed so this is a part of our plan to get people back in the parks and for sure we are looking forward to seeing massive numbers coming out tomorrow.”
