Follow Di Arrow, the popular Dancehall show which normally takes place each February in St. Mary, will not take place this year.
Follow Di Arrow , the annual Dancehall show held in James Bond Beach, Jamaica has gathered big crowds and big artists. Last year we reported the crazy bottles rain that started when Bounty Killer made comments that the crowd believe were against di Gaza Boss Vybz Kartel.
Shortly after Bounty’s words an heavy rain of bottles was thrown on stage forcing Bounty to run away from the stage. When Kartel appeared on stage shortly after Bounty he also was greeted with glass bottles and he didn’t have time to talk but just run away the stage for his own safety. Gunshots were also fired causing the crowd to go into a panic with several injured. Considering all those factors, Follow Di Arrow promoter, Dexton Ennis, intimated during a radio interview on Tuesday that the show would not take place this year.
Rapper Snoop Dogg loves Jamrock and while visiting Jamaica he also communicated he wants to realize a documentary about/on Jamaica.
