J Boog Performs For Hometown Crowd At One Love THOUGHTS+PHOTOS: J BOOG @ ONE LOVE CALI REGGAE FEST 2/10/18
LONG BEACH, CA- Jerry Afemata is J Boog, and his performance at One Love was basically a home town show to kick off his “Love Over Everything Tour”. With a “Compton” street sign prominently featured on the LED screen behind him, he made his local roots known and the hometown love also made itself known everywhere. Of all of the acts that performed over the weekend, J Boog had perhaps the most fan-made posters in the audience.
J Boog’s soulful voice floated in the evening air as his R&B infused reggae had the audience gently swaying to his sounds. Though I’m not fully versed in his musical repertoire, I found myself drawn to the deep tonal resonance of his full voice. His voice and musicality was enough to make it fairly clear to me why he is such a star in the reggae genre. This dude’s got it, and I’m sure he’ll keep on scoring chart-toppers for the foreseeable future.
