With about an hour to go before the scheduled start of the Kanye West 'Sunday Service' concert, patrons are trickling into Emancipation Park in New Kingston.

The concert is expected to attract droves of West's fans but so far the turnout has been less than anticipated.

Earlier, the police, who are posted all around the venue, swept the stage, back stage and artiste accommodation areas with their canine teams, and were out in their numbers directing traffic.

The expected traffic gridlock has not yet materialised as it was regular Friday evening traffic along Oxford Road, Knutsford Boulevard and Half Way Tree Road.

West's 100 member choir had earlier rehearsed during a sound check and sounded on top of their game.

The rapper announced his conversion to Christianity earlier this year.
