Mr Vegas gave a signature performance on the Bacardi stage of the iconic Notting Hill Carnival in London earlier this week.

He entertained the massive crowd with songs from his impressive catalogue, including Tek Weh Yourself, No Friend From Dem, Heads High and Hot Wuk.

He had the carnival massive in a flag-waving frenzy. The entertainer also shared the stage with UK rapper Stefflon Don and Major Lazer.

The Notting Hill Carnival is an annual event that has taken place in London since 1966 on the streets of Notting Hill, in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and the City of Westminster, each August over two days (the August bank holiday Monday and the preceding Sunday).

“Right now, my next move will be to shoot a video for the single Do High, featuring Spanish sensation Dalex. The song's audio has already over 5 million views on YouTube,” Mr Vegas said.

In the meantime, he revealed that he had been getting a lot of requests for dubplates from multiple sound systems for his No Friend From Dem which was released over 11 years ago.

“The song has new life, and is one of the must-play songs in the dancehall. The dubplate got one of the biggest forwards for DJ Dynamite, who won the Bass Odyssey sound clash recently. I have been getting a lot of calls for duplates; I just did it for Frequent Flyer sound as part of the Red Bull Culture Clash. That song is one of the most requested dubplate by clash sounds now,” he said.

The song was originally recorded for producer Stephen McGregor on the Power Cut rhythm which also featured Mavado's Top Shatta Nuh Miss and Vybz Kartel's Start War and Dead.
