Grenada’s best loved entertainer, Edson Ajamu Mitchell, announced he will feature in a unique night of entertainment called ‘Ajamu, Up Close’ at the Rooftop Bar & Restaurant in St George’s, Grenada on Saturday, 22 March 2014.
Fondly known as ‘King Ajamu’, the seven times Calypso Monarch made the announcement during a special appearance at The Rooftop Bar & Restaurant to celebrate Grenada’s 40th year of independence last week. Fresh from performing at independence activities on the Carenage, he delivered his biggest hits dressed all in white and sporting a patriotic red, gold and green bandana. With his famous locks trailing freely down his back he had people singing and swaying along to his most popular tunes.
To the delight of his fans, Ajamu announced he would be back at the Rooftop Bar & Restaurant in March for ‘Ajamu, Up Close’ a night where audiences can get up, close and personal with him in a relaxed setting.
Ajamu knew that The Rooftop Bar & Restaurant was the right venue for the special event as soon as he saw it. “The Rooftop is a very attractive establishment, a beautiful place with a good ambience, a mellow mood and great hospitality. As I looked around I knew it was the right place for ‘Ajamu, Up Close’ because it’s a show that requires a cool and ambient setting and will be like nothing else I’ve ever done before in Grenada. This venue has a lot of potential to grow, I can see a lot of love and care has gone into the décor, one day it will be the very center of Grenada night life.”
Gloria Cyrus, proprietor of The Rooftop Bar & Restaurant said she is delighted Ajamu chose her venue for the special night. “Ajamu is a very talented artist, a true son of Grenada, we really look forward to his special night.”
The Rooftop guests were also in for another treat when Ajamu — who was recently awarded, Most Outstanding Entertainer, at a ceremony held during the Grenada 40th Year of Independence Dinner & Dance – announced that he has moved back to Grenada. “I have returned to my home town of Mamma Cannes where I am building the Top Lever Recording Studio. I love Grenada, I missed Grenada and so I am very pleased to have Grenada as my home base once again.”
Also performing at The Rooftop Bar & Restaurant pre-independence party were leading Calypsonian and Soca artists Brother B and Otis. Otis kicked off the night by singing all his well-known numbers including ‘Tornado’ which won him 2010 Soca Monarch. NAACP Image award nominee Brother B rounded the night off with a super energetic performance accompanied by his signature moves loved by all his fans.
