GUYANA EMBRACES ELE
Following on his recent performance in Guyana, the Guyanese newspaper, Stabroek News, is heaping praises on local dancehall act, the Energy God, Elephant Man.
According to a story in that newspaper, Ele lived up to his top billing position at the recent Digicel’s D’ Summer Flex concert held at the Providence National Stadium.
Elephant Man was one-third of a trio of Jamaican performers which included Tanya Stephens and Tessanne Chin.
The report claims that Ele, whose real name is Oneil Bryan, was true to form, “leaping out onto the stage a little after 1:00 am, bouncing left, right and centre as he sped through a medley of hits including recent hits Nuh Linga, and Gully Creeper”.
"It was all love in Guyana and the fans embraced me totally. Dem know the songs word for word and dem have the dance moves down pat," he said of his recent Guyana experience.
Back home, Elephant Man gave another of his high energy performances at the recently-concluded Portland Jerk Festival. Ele pleased his fans at the festival, performing all his dancing songs which had the crowd in a frenzy.
Elephant Man is one of the top billed acts to perform on Reggae Sunsplash Dancehall Night, Thursday, July 23.
