Kees, Ziggy Ranking, Isasha among local cast for I Am Legend concert

Local acts will get an opportunity to shine this weekend at the I Am Legend Concert. 

The show, featuring Buju Banton, will also showcase local talent in addition to those from Jamaica.

Kes the Band, Ziggy Ranking and his band Order along with fellow reggae stars Ataklan, Isasha, Mr. King and Jamelody will round out the local cast. 

In 2009, Ziggy opened the show for Buju Banton at the Queen’s Park Savannah in Trinidad.

“It is truly an honour to be a part of this show, and I must give thanks to the organisers for including me. I have been a Mark Myrie fan forever,” said the entertainer.

Joining Ziggy will be his15-year-old daughter DJ Lila, who is a part of the musical outfit that’s set to start things at the Queen’s Park Savannah on Easter Sunday.

With the announcement of the local cast, the stage is now set for the long-awaited show which will also see performances from rising reggae sensation Koffee, Singing Melody, Lust, Luciano and Wayne Wonder.

“This is huge. Never before has something like this truly been executed in this format in T&T. Buju’s catalogue of hits, added to that of Luciano, Wayne Wonder, Singing Melody, Tony Curtis and Lust and not to mention the powerful vocals of the T&T cast members- the I Am Legend Festival will be epic,” said a spokesperson for the promotional outfit, High Frequency Entertainment.

The I Am Legend concert brand first secured Buju Banton in 2006. The iconic reggae heavyweight returned as the headline act for I Am Legend in 2007, 2008 and 2009. He now returns after a decade, in 2019, ready to give the people of Trinidad and Tobago, and the world who’ll be looking on, a show that only he can deliver.

Tickets for the mega-festival are still available at advertised outlets, while stocks last.

Organisers are encouraging patrons to arrive at the venue early.

“Gates open at 3 pm, and everything will be seamlessly executed. We really want patrons to come out and enjoy every aspect of this festival. Dress comfortably and come out to enjoy good, positive energy in the open air, with friends and loved ones. This is what T&T needs,” said the organisers.
