CLEAN LYRICS AS PAMPUTTAE PERFORMS FOR ST THOMAS KIDS
Following hot on the heels of her highly entertaining Reggae Sumfest performance in which she made good use of a call-up by deejay Spice to perform their collab, Slim vs Fluffy, Pamputtae again scored big over the recent Independence period.
The effervescent, thick girl, who proudly represents for the fluffy females, showed her softer, more maternal side when she hosted and performed at a fun day for kids in Sunny Hill St Thomas on August 6. Pamputtae was the toast of the town as she got close to the kids, who just swarmed all oer the goodas girl.
"I couldn't believe that these children knew me so well," Pamputtae said, still sounding amazed. "This is bush and when I said, 'Wha' me name', they all shouted 'Pamputtae'," she declared.
It was a day of activity geared toward the kids and the deejay delighted in playing host as the children competed in dancing contest -- which was won by a fat girl -- singing contests and a cultural quiz.
"I didn't just 'en-joy' I 'full-joy' myself," the Fluffy diva said. "Since Paul Bogle is from St Thomas and it was Independence I asked them questions on him and the kids are so bright, they got them all right," Pamputtae stated.
During her own performance, she kept it squeaky clean, and even when the kids were demanding that she sing her signature rude song, Goodie Goodie, she rebuked them and instead deliveredJesus Is My Obeah Man, Slim vs Fluffy and I Want A Farmer, much to their delight.
"A long time we in this thing. I am a mother and so I know how important it is to be a role model. I can go to a children's concert or on a school tour and rock it without uttering one slack word and still keep i t entertaining and lively," she declared.
Pamputtae was also fulsome in her praise of the chefs who prepared the curry goat and breadfruit and also the farmers of Sunny Hill, who went all out to ensure that her "car back was full of food" for her journey back to Kingston.
