King Addies & Bass Odyssey Make History In Guyana
The legendary, King Addies kicked off their 40th Anniversary year, alongside Jamaican giants, Bass Odyssey In Guyana
Over 13 ,000 patrons pulled over the National Stadium in Guyana
King Addies versus Bass Odyssey has been a roadblock event anywhere in the world for decades, yet they’re an even bigger crowd-puller when billed on a regular dance.
Proven at Guyana’s Flashback OldSkool Party last weekend at Georgetown’s largest arena, Guyana National Stadium, the pair of sound system icons, alongside Barbados Freedom Sound was hosted by Majah Hype and pulled over 13,000 patrons out for an exciting 1-night journey down memory lane.
One half of the Golden Smile Family promo team, Andre Kellman said “This was our 16th staging of Flashback, and the absolute biggest one so far”.

He went on to add, “The weather called for rain, but that didn’t deter the massive—they came out with umbrellas, and King Addies and Bass Odyssey delivered even more than Guyana expected.”
According to Kellman, “The highlight of the event happened at the very end of the night when the fans asked KingPin from Addies to play another round. Delingy then offered the fans a special rapid-fire, song-for-song, 45 juggling".
For the first time ever seen in Guyana, KingPin and Damian Delingy played a continuous round of songs on the same riddims and bussed the dance together.

As per Kellman, “Both left their footprint in Guyana - it was a full joy moment - and an unforgettable thing to witness firsthand.”
Certainly a proper kick-off to King Addies 40th Anniversary year, their next official celebration is slated for Antigua on March 25th.
