After Flava Unit sound system created excitement before kick-off in Tuesday night’s football match between Jamaica and Mexico, then the hair-raising moments during the first 45-minutes, the half-time break was given over to live performances. The large crowd inside the National Stadium, Arthur Wint Drive, St Andrew, was brought to another level of excitement as several artistes, notably I-Octane and Ninja Man, upped the ante during the 15-minute break.

At that point the score was 0-0 and the Jamaicans’ spirits still high.

Before the match started, Flava Unit delivered several songs from popular Jamaican recording artistes such as Etana, Chronixx, Romain Virgo, I-Octane, Christopher Martin, Jah Cure, Bob Marley and Tarrus Riley. Among the tracks which rocked the house were Virgo’s I am Rich in Love, Marley’s Natural Mystic, Chronixx’ Behind Curtain and Martin’s Paper Loving.

In between songs the Coca Cola Hype Crew danced to the 2010 World Cup song Wavin’ Flag, recorded by K’naan. The dancers delivered their customised version of the dance and music, designed for the campaign to World Cup 2014 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The Fluffy Diva, Miss Kitty, hosted half-time’s brief live performances from the cycle track. Digicel brand Ambassador I-Octane entered the performance area to deliver Man a Suffer too Long and Love Di Vibes, to the crowd’s elation. However, it was the appearance of the Don Gorgon, Ninja Man, recently signed to the Josef Bogdanovich-owned Downsound Records, that caused an uproar inside the National Stadium. He performed Dweet with Specialist, which further served to enliven the crowd.

Harry Toddler, who did Don’t Run In and Bad Man Nuh Dress Like Girl, also performed, as did World Peace singer Nature.
