Artists Tribute Usain Bolt After Loosing Final Race

The dancehall community is paying tribute to

Usain Bolt after the sprint legend lost his final

solo race at the World Championship in London

last weekend.

Bolt announced from last year that he would be

officially retiring from track and field after this

year’s World Championship games in London. He

wanted to retire from last year’s Olympic Games

in Rio, but his supporters urged him to do it for

another year. On Saturday’s 100 meter finals, he

was beaten by American sprinters Justin Gatlin

and Christian Coleman to win the bronze medal.

Gatlin won the gold and Coleman took silver.

Yesterday, Usain Bolt took to his SnapChat to

announced that this is his first ever bronze

medal and he is happy about it. He also insist

that he will be going out as previously planned.

Artists like Charly Black, Bounty Killer, Beenie

Man, Protoje, Ding Dong, Popcaan, Chi Ching

Ching and others have paid tribute to the sprint

legend.

“Big up Usain Bolt and all his accomplishments,”

Charly Black said. “Fi ah next Trelawny man, yuh

dun know. Big up Usain Bolt again. Not only on

all his accomplishments, but for letting all

Jamaicans feel proud to know that we have the

fastest human being on Earth. We’re thanking

him for putting Jamaica where it is, in his way, in

our generation. It is good to know that not only

in music we have people representing the

country. From one Trelawny yout’ to a next,

more life, more prosperity. Wishing you farewell

and give thanks again. You did it, and made all

of us proud.”

Beenie Man added, “To come into the world and

leave a global legacy that can never be ignored,

undermined or erased…dat name LEGEND! Well

done, my Lord. #Unstoppable.”

Ding Dong and the Ravers crew also show some

respect for the king. “For Usain, we haffi raise

the flag to the highest. Him give whole heap of

inspiration, from country to town to ghetto to

garrison. Bolt show that you can achieve the

impossible, because he has achieved the

impossible. Big up again Usain, from Ding Dong

and the whole Ravers. Manners and respect to
