After Masicka’s Stunning Performance At Reggae Sumfest, He Calls Himself ‘Dancehall’s Baddest’

Masicka Reggae Sumfest 2022 Full Performance - YouTubeMidway his performance at dawn at Reggae Sumfest Night One on Saturday morning, Masicka declared himself Dancehall’s baddest and compared his musical arch-rivals to timid rodents, who were too afraid to confront him lyrically.

The Top Striker was in Top Form, commandeering the stage like a true champion, minutes into his delivery discarding his jeans jacket, and to which patrons remaining in the Catherine Hall grounds remained riveted.

The Calabar High School old boy had the patrons eating out of his hands as he churned out hit after hit, among them Infrared a collab with Vybz Kartel, Pain with Popcaan, Image and They Don’t Know.  He also introduced Stefflon Don for a cameo performance of their single Moments.

But the defining moment for Masicka was when he belted out the words “everybody up” from his song Update.  The Catherine Hall erupted with almost the entire crowd jumping upwards, hands up in the air, as if it were the cue they were waiting on to give the History artist the biggest “forward” of the show, hands down.

Always fearless and direct, Masicka decided to claim for himself the accolade he said he deserves, but which some forces in the music were refusing to bestow upon him. “When yuh si mi a perform – Sumfest when yuh si mi a perform, a hits back a hits.  Nuttn caan r—sclaat diss inna di mawnin yah,” he declared staunchly.

Still venting about the denial of the accolade which he said is rightfully his, Masicka described the actions of his musical rivals as cowardly, in what appears to be a gauntlet thrown at the feet of his nemesis, Alkaline.

“Yuh si when it come to my name, a suh dem nibble round like rat,” he told the crowd gesticulating with his fingers.  “Dem fraid a mi yuh f_k.   Mi can tell oonu dat,” he said, before driving home his point with his breakout hit Dem Ago Dead.

He added a while later: “Dem nuh gi mi di credit weh mi deserve.  And mi nuh want it neither.  Mi rich yuh f_ck.  A talk dem a talk; dem caan step in front a mi no time.”


Not happy about Rushane Barnett, the 23-year-old man suspected of murdering his cousin and her four children in Clarendon recently,  Masicka, said if he were in the position of the police officers, the accused man would not have been brought in alive.

After a stellar performance that lasted just under 25 minutes, Masicka closed out brilliantly with his Suicide Note song from his 438 album.

The renewed calls for a clash came following Alkaline’s new song Static, the accompanying music video for which was shot within what appears to be a swamp, regarded as the home of crocodiles, to which Masicka has “aligned” himself, which led to speculations that the Champion Boy had thrown down the gauntlet, via the song.
