Despite the inclement weather affecting several parishes across the island since Monday, Tmrw.Tday Culture Fest kicks off in Negril today.A source close to the production team indicated that everything is in place for the week-long festival.

“So far, it is sunny in Negril. We have not seen a drop of rain today, but we are fully prepared and measures are already in place should the weather change,” said the source who requested anonymity.

The Meteorological Service said the weather condition, caused by a trough, is expected to continue into tomorrow.

Roots reggae singer Protoje & The Indiggnation will be the headliner at the festival.

Fresh from tour, the singer said he is anticipating a great performance in Jamaica.

“We just came off tour where we did like 30 shows, so we are very seasoned and feeling really good. I can't wait to deliver a unique vibes. I only perform in Jamaica once for the year, so I am going to do it a little different,” Protoje told the Jamaica Obsever.

Sponsored by Red Stripe, Tmrw.Tday Culture Fest will see Protoje & The Indiggnation performing on Saturday.

Among the many hit songs, Protoje is expected to captivate his audience with his thought-provoking song Blood Money.

“Blood Money is just to raise the awareness of these things that we talk about in private but not in public. We, as the musicians, are the voice that can be heard all over, so we say the things them that people talked about and don't have the platform to say,” he said.

Protoje said he is pleased with the feedback of the song since its official release in February. Blood Money is produced by Phillip “Winta” James.

“The feedback has been awesome and people have been responding to it locally and abroad. Everywhere I go I am hearing it but, most importantly, it's being played in Jamaica, which is the main goal for the music to be heard there,” he said.

Protoje's other songs include Who Can You Call; Who Knows, featuring Chronixx; and Rasta Love, featuring Ky-Mani Marley.
