GREAT PERFORMANCE FROM FLIPPA MAFIA AT ST MARY MI COME FROM
It was last Thursday morning August 6th 2009 when the King of Flossing, Flippa Mafia hit the stage at St Mary Mi Come From to perform for a crowd that was eager for him.
Flippa was called on stage by fast-rising deejay, Assassin, who had the crowd hyped up with a great performance. He announced Flippa, and St Mary erupted when the slim built, always smiling entertainer ran on stage. Flippa took the musical baton from Assassin and surged forward with a performance that really announced his arrival. It wasn’t about the champagne-popping, because there was none and it was only after he received his well deserved forwards that he sprinkled a few $500 bills into the crowd.
But, honestly, his performance was all about his songs and his ability to engage his fans. With the ever popular Unfinished House now sitting comfortably at the number one spot on Richie B’s prestigious Jamaica Countdown Chart, it was easy to see why the single is in this coveted position. As the band struck up the riddim, the massives at Gray’s Inn shouted their approval with screams, lighters, by blowing horns, dancing and singing the words of the song.
“Dis youth know what him is about,” one middle-aged woman chimed as she sang Unfinished House.
Flippa reeled off singles from his growing repertoire and made his exit all too soon. Fans, however, can look forward to the deejay in performance at Champions In Action this Saturday August 15th 09.
“As always, I will do my best and give fans a performance that they truly deserve,” a smiling Flippa stated in an after-show interview.
