Charm B Productions reggae singer Sativa D Black 1 recently delivered a solid performance during the annual Red Rose For Gregory concert held in Kingston on February 16th. The 'Petty Thief singer gave a satisfying performance on a show that featured R & B legends Peabo Bryson and Regina Belle.

Dressed in a red and white ensemble with red matching shoes,  Sativa D Black 1 wasted no time getting the attention of his audience with  a rendition of the late Gregory Issacs' hit single, 'Tune In'. 

The St Catherine-born roots and culture recording artiste first came to public attention while aggressively promoting his "Petty Thief" track until it became an anthem for his set.

Known for his crazy stage antics, dramatic expressions, hilarious dance moves and story telling, he had a breakout year in 2018, climaxing with a great set at the 2018 Sound Di Alarm Festival, held in Linstead in front of his hometown crowd. He ignited the audience and earned no fewer than three encores.

 "I just give thanks to my fans and my management team, I will continue to grow and defend the poor and be the voice of the disenfranchised," he said.

Sativa Di Black 1 is working on an album which will be released through the Charm B Productions company.  The album will feature previously unreleased songs as well as current singles like 'Never Want We Reach' single produced by Full Charge Records. 

Although he is best known for 'Petty Thief' that comically chronicles the tale of a stolen pair of shoes, Sativa's music implores the larger society to pay attention to what is happening to the poor and needy with singles such as 'Boardhouse and Zince Fence'. 

"Suffering is terrible! Nuff times mi give away mi last dollar because mi know some suffer more than some. Some people are hopeless and its not by choice. Some people cannot even begin to think about a future much less envision one, what do you say to that person?" he said. 

Since his re-emergence to the entertainment scene in 2016 under the management of Charm B Productions, Sativa D Black 1 has been making waves.
