Shaggy calls Sting, Wyclef, Fetty Wap For 'Make A Difference Foundation' #ShaggyAndFriends 2018

Sting, Wyclef Jean, and Fetty Wap are the international acts to headline the 2018 staging of the biennial charity event Shaggy & Friends - the concert slated for the grounds of Jamaica House in St. Andrew on Saturday, January 6.

Shaggy made the announcement at a launch held at the Bustamante Hospital for Children in St. Andrew yesterday.

"Sting was a no-brainer. He and I had done a song together and we have been friends for a long time. We were doing some work here and there and I just said: 'How about coming to Jamaica?' And I will tell you a crazy story right now. Every Breath You Take, which is Sting's biggest song, was written right here in Jamaica... at Golden Eye. A lot a people don't know that. Jamaica holds a very dear place in his heart. It will be his first time performing here... so a real no-brainer. As far as Wyclef is concerned... Clef is almost Jamaican, so it was easy. Clef and I have had a great relationship for years. Fetty and I see each other here and there and a mutual contact told him about the concert. He just came and check me out and said I will be there for that," Shaggy told the Jamaica Observer.
