Can't use my chat formatting in the config when I am using Team City

Description

Hi, I've just started up a new minecraft 1.8 server. I am using Essentials Team City for my 1.8 server, I decided to do some chat formatting in the config file. So I do /ess reload and try testing it. Nothing happens, I have the same chat format as before, I find this extremely annoying and I am not comfortable using other chat formatting plugins. I have EssentialsChat installed, I have the main plugin. There is nothing coming up in the Console or Ingame.

Screenshots of my config:

Please fix this. BTW I use GM too and when I try '/mangaddv Owner prefix &8[&a&lOwner&8]' it adds the variable but nothing changes when I chat.
