SINGERS Barrington Levy, Half Pint, and Tony Tuff will be honoured at this year's Bob Marley One Love Fun Day f ootball matches, according to event conceptualiser Clive “Busy” Campbell.

The occasion, now in its 37th year, is scheduled for Harbour View Mini Stadium in St Andrew on Ash Wednesday, February 15.

 

Campbell said it is fitting these artistes be honoured, given their body of work.

 

“These singers have so many hit songs; they deserve to be recognised for their contribution to Jamaican music. They're so many artistes doing great work for a number of years and they should be lauded,” he told the Jamaica Observer.

 

Levy, whose career took off in the 1970s, has one of the strongest catalogues in dancehall/reggae. His hit songs include Under Mi Sensi, Black Roses, My Woman, Looking My Love, On The Telephone and Work. His 2015 album, Acousticalevy, was nominated for a Grammy Award in the Best Reggae Album category.

 

Half Pint came to prominence in the 1980s. His signature tracks include Greetings, Level The Vibes, Hold On, No Substitute Lover, and One Big Family.

 

Tony Tuff is the elder of the trio. His career began in the late 1960s as a member of the The African Brothers, which also comprised Sugar Minott and Derrick “Bubbles” Howard.

As a solo act, he found commercial success with producer Henry “Junjo” Lawes on the singles Water Pumpee and Mix Me Down.

 

Campbell was involved in the sports and entertainment sectors as a player (with Santos) and producer. Several entertainers have been honoured by his event including Bunny Wailer, Freddie McGregor, Boris Gardiner, Errol Dunkley, Derrick Harriott, Jimmy Riley, Winston Riley, Stranger Cole, the I-Three and King Stitt.

 

Proceeds from the match will be used to purchase computers and printers for a basic school to be named.
