Ethiopian New Year 2011 at Wickie Wackie beach
Sept 25, 2011: Two weekend’s ago I made my first trod to Wickie Wackie in Bull Bay, St Andrew for Lee’s Unlimited Happy New Year Ethiopia celebration.
Wickie Wackie is one of those teeming spots on the island that hosts some of the realest roots artists on different reggae shows. The intimate beach setting has seen the likes of Protoje, I Wayne and many more pass across its stage.
September 11 2011 marked the New Year (2004 on the Ethiopian calender) called Enkutatash in Amharic. With Lee Tafari at the control the rasta-loving crowd gathered the pay homage to Africa and the stage was blazed by Kelissa McDonald, Ras Takura, Dax Lion, Natel, Cen’C Love, Chronixx, Kabaka Pyramid, Jah9, Floyd West and more.
