Based on Chronixx’s music, persons have been voicing concerns about him performing among hardcore dancehall acts.
“Why night one? This makes no sense,” one user wrote under the post on Reggae Sumfest’s Instagram page.
“Why is he on night one? He needs to be on night two,” another wrote.
Although still concerned, some users say they understood Chronixx’s inclusion on dancehall night. Pointing out that the singer is a huge crowd-puller, some users have concluded that with Buju Banton and Beres Hammond booked for night two, Chronixx’s placement on dancehall night is to ensure that night one gets just as many patrons as night two.
In a recent interview with THE WEEKEND STAR, Joe Bogdanovich, CEO of Downsound Entertainment and chief organiser of Reggae Sumfest, said that while he is aware of some of the concerns about Chronixx’s inclusion on night one, he believes the singer is a good fit.
