Organisers have postponed the much-publicised performance by reggae star J Boog scheduled to happen in Honiara today.

A statement from the Heritage Park Hotel said the decision was due to the bad weather condition experienced in the county causing all international flights to cancel.

“The performance will not happen tomorrow (today),” the hotel said in a statement.

“We are trying our best to set a date but that will be set in 2 to 3 weeks time,” the statement said.

The Pacific Islands’ reggae star and international artist J BOOG was scheduled to arrive today for the concert to be held at the Heritage Park Hotel.

J Boog was born in Long Beach and raised in Compton, California.

He was a man of many influences and who raised up in a rough streets of Compton, the strong sense of tradition and culture that J Boog absorbed from his family was instrumental in his path to stay off the streets and begin a successful music career.

The reggae star's music career became serious in 2005, when a couple of brothers from his neighborhood brought him to one of J's favorite artists, George "Fiji" Veikoso".

The two began working together immediately and J ended up moving to Hawaii in 2006 to continue developing his craft.  

In 2007 he released his debut album "Hear Me Roar".
