Internationally acclaimed Dancehall superstar, Lady Saw will add another prestigious accolade to her collection as Reggae Sumfest prepares to honor the prominent diva.
Sumfest organizers will be recognizing Lady Saw for her contribution to the music industry, highlighting a successful career that has spanned three different decades. Summerfest Productions executive director, Johnny Gourzong made the announcement via press release.
“Sumfest is pleased to showcase the hottest female acts in the Jamaican music industry right now.”
“Among the hottest females on the line-up is Grammy award-winning artiste, Lady Saw, a true representative of the dancehall genre and, for this, she will be honored at the 20th staging of the festival.”
Lady Saw will join fellow Dancehall/Reggae legends of Beenie Man, Bounty Killer and Beres Hammond, who’ve been honored at past editions of Reggae Sumfest and will be the first female recipient of such a distinction.
The world renowned deejay, known for her hardcore performing and lyrical styles will be one of the headliners on Dancehall Night at the 20th edition of Reggae Sumfest, set to take place between July 15 and 21 at Catherine Hall in Montego Bay. She will perform on the same night as the aforementioned Beenie Man and Bounty Killer as well as Shabba Ranks who will return to the Sumfest stage for the first time in 18 years.
Lady Saw’s catalogue continues to expand. From timeless hits such as Chat To Mi Back, No Less Than A Woman, Man Is The Least, Sycamore Tree and Backshot (featuring Spragga Benz) to more recent successes such as Two Man Mi Have, Love Sick and a soon to be released single with highly regarded British singer, Estelle.
Addtionally, she’s the only Jamaican female solo artiste to take home a Grammy Award, which she claimed in 2004 for the collaborative effort, Underneath It All alongside American rock band, No Doubt.
