Chronixx mobbed during Sando visit

School children mobbed reggae singer Jamar Rolando McNaughton better known as Chronixx outside City Hall, San Fernando on Wednesday.

Dressed in jeans, shirt and a blue knitted cap, Chronixx was all smiles as children rushed him with their cellphones in hand trying to get a picture with him.

The 'Here Comes Trouble' star got into a bit of trouble himself trying to navigate through the crowd, and make his way to the stage inside City Hall's auditorium. Stopping to shake hands and hug his fans, Chronixx finally got to the stage.

Playing one of his biggest hits, 'Here Comes Trouble' on the steelpan, the Skiffle Bunch Steel Orchestra gave Chronixx a lively Trinbagonian welcome. He was touched by the gestured but had to leave City Hall for another engagement.

Leaving the venue also proved a bit tricky for the singer as he was led through side corridors, followed closely by the media and then into a waiting car.

His visit to the City of San Fernando is a part of the “Chronixx in the City” series. His next stop was a Meet and Greet and Pop-Up Shop event at Vas Lounge in St Clair tonight.

On Thursday Chronixx will visit St George's College. The Barataria-based school emerged the winner of The One Heart Caribbean School's competition, where students across the country submitted video recordings singing Chronixx's popular song “Likes”.

Chronixx arrived in Trinidad and Tobago on Tuesday evening ahead of the One Heart Caribbean Festival.

 He was greeted by a contingent of photographers, One Heart Caribbean organisers and 432 Live officials. He was accompanied by his management team and international recording artiste Eesah.

Chronixx and his band, Zincfence Redemption, will headline the One Heart Caribbean Festival on Friday at Skinner Park, San Fernando, which will also include special performances by Freetown Collective, Marlon Asher, Prophet Benjamin and Walshy Fire of Major Lazer.
