Sumfest2023 || ‘You will never see me here again’, says Tanya Stephens

Iconic reggae singer Tanya Stephens says she is done with Reggae Sumfest.

The declaration comes after her performance on Festival Night two of the shows 30th anniversary staging. 

“Big up everybody from tonight…but me really can’t do this again. My work supposed to be fun, and this a stress,” she said. 

When asked what could have been different, the These Streets singer listed a number issues she endured, including logistical problems as well as behavioural issues, seemingly from Sumfest workers. 

Among the allegations Stephens mentioned was that of performance times being slashed.

“I want to commend the band, the singers (and) the dancers, because they are amazing for being, at the very last minute, (able) to take a 45 minute rehearse show and cram it into 30 minutes, as per the last minute change they gave us,” she said. 

Despite the issues, Stephens still delivered a memorable performance which had audience members singing and dancing to a slew of her hits.
