Popular deejays Mavado and Vybz Kartel took hundreds of fans for a trip down memory lane on Sunday night, reminding them of a time when there were no Gully-Gaza issues.
The two performed together in a gesture of unity at the annual West Kingston Jamboree stage show in Tivoli Gardens, Kingston.
When Mavado was called to the stage by Alliance boss Bounty Killer, he soon began hinting at the anticipated meeting with himself and Kartel after unleashing songs like Fall Rain Fall and Every Situation.
“Unnu waa si history?” Mavado asked a few times while urging that the path to the stage be cleared.
Kartel’s entrance would then send the crowd into a frenzy and make for the onstage meeting of the two, who were all smiles as they unleashed tune after tune to the delight of the frantic crowd which in return gave them ‘forward’ after ‘forward’.
When Mavado sang the chorus to Happiest Days after Kartel did the first verse, fans were reminded that the two were once friends.
Simultaneous shouts of “Gully” and “Gaza” could be heard echoing from a number of fans who jumped repeatedly to show their approval of the two deejays who shared the stage.
“Yu naw sing my tune? A which tune a my tune,?” Mavado asked Kartel to which the Portmore Empire boss replied by singing, “… Luv dem tender touch dem …”
While addressing the audience, Vybz Kartel claimed that the feud between himself and Mavado was planned.
“Yu see wah yu a see, a dis wi plan, yu si wi a war, a plan it plan,” Kartel said.
The coming together of the two is said to be the ending of the back and forth word-jabbing and conflict between them which has been going on since 2006.
Earlier, the cross, angry and miserable Bounty Killer brought the house down during his performance.
He was in sizzling form and easily shrugged off at least three unwanted rounds of applause to deliver Eagle And Di Hawk to monstrous cheers from the crowd.
Other acts like comedic duo Twin of Twins, I-Octane, I Wayne and female deejay Spice were also excellent and had the crowd going wild with their selection of songs.
