Rising Reggae artist, Sagitarr, whose ode to Usain Bolt caught the ear of the sprint king, is calling victory for the defending champion in today’s World Championships 200 metres final in Beijing.
Sagitarr, whose song The Usain Bolt Anthem racked up a staggering 200,000-plus views after being posted on the 18 KARAT REGGAE facebook page. Even Usain Bolt saw the video and fell in love with the tribute. Bolt send a message out to all reggae music producers that if they produce the song, he would pay all costs and release the song on his own Tracks and Records label.
“He’s so fast, so speedy that I have no doubt that he will win in the 200. He might even break his own world record. But even if he doesn’t, he is so good that he must. Justin Gatlin will hold a little second. The boss will give him a t’ing,” said Sagitarr.
He said he had no expectation ‘Anthem’ would become a hit. He just wanted to pay his respect and also give something to the superstar sprinter’s fans.
“I was just trying a t’ing for all the people out there who really love sports. It’s not a wagonist thing.”
Sagitarr, whose given name is Lascelles David Beckford, is looking forward to meeting Usain Bolt.
