Event description
Yellowman is a Jamaican reggae and dancehall deejay, also known as King Yellowman.

About this Event

King Yellowman gained wide popularity in the dancehall reggae scene of the 1980s. A series of successful singles, including "I'm Getting Married in the Morning," "Nobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt" and "Zungu Zungu Zeng" brought him worldwide acclaim. Although he used strong political language in his early songs, Yellowman often brought a salacious, controversial element to his lyrics. This overtly sexual type of wordplay became known in the reggae music world as "slackness."
