With this year’s theme “Legendary”, BK Entertainment, Pumpstation, Bakanal Inc, Mr. LaRoche, Six0Six Ent and the Caribbean Students Association have come together to make this year’s HU Homecoming celebrations a ‘Legendary‘ one.
For the Caribbean contingent, what artiste is considered ‘legendary you ask? Who else other than the self-proclaimed “King of Dancehall’ Anthony Moses Davis a.k.a BEENIE Man of course! This dancehall/reggae super star is the perfect match for this year’s homecoming celebrations at the HU International Yardfest After party.
Beenie Man offers a plethora of old school and current , chart topping hits starting from the ‘90’s with hits like “Old Dog” (1995) to “ Who Am I (Sim Simma) “ (1998) ,“Girls Dem Sugar” (2000) and “King of the Dancehall” (2004) to his most recent hits “I’m Drinking/Rum & Red Bull” (2010) & “Let’s Go” (2012)
The “Legendary” Sounds
Brazilian house record producer, studio engineer and dancehall/reggae dj, is best known for his work with the Beastie Boys. Mario C will definitely add a new dimension to this year’s After Party alongside Beenie Man.
Barry P. (Jugglers Int’l)
Hailing from the twin Island of TnT, we welcome JUGGLERS Int’l to the HU Homecoming stage. Playing cities such as New York, Miami, London and all over the Caribbean, JUGGLERS Int’l has been a household name for over 10 years, and is a crowd pleaser whose dynamic sound and vibes, leaves patrons wanting more. Their versatility spreads across parties, fetes, carnival bands and now HU Homecoming. JUGGLERS Int’l…a great addition to the HU Homecoming scene.
Jazzy T (Renaissance Disco)
No stranger to the HU homecoming scene, Jazzy T always loves to come to D.C., and often proclaims that Washington D.C. is his ‘turf’. Coming from one of the most ‘Legendary” sounds out of Jamaica, Jazzy T never disappoints….he tends to perform at his BEST with competition from other djs, and on Homecoming Friday, let’s just say he will be at his best.
Fyah Oats (Global Network)

What started as a passion for music and radio, led to a major career that would take him far beyond the nation’s capital. Fyah Oats not only has talent, he has a unique style which can best be described as matchless musical versatility, combined with an unparalleled gift for connecting with the crowd. His style is universal and his passion is GLOBAL.
