The event organized by the entertainment outfits KISOMI Entertainment and Build Back Promotions seeks to promote and showcase local talent in the form of Disc Jockeys and local dancehall artistes.

Head of KISOMI Entertainment Lyf Compton said on Wednesday that the idea for the show came as observations have shown that St. Vincent and the Grenadines has exceptional dancehall artistes who are not being given recognition, “for whatever reasons”.

“Every day we are bombarded with Jamaican dancehall music and music from North American artistes, but our local dancehall/reggae artistes, although some of them are good, do not get much airplay”, said Compton, who added that it seems as if it is only Soca Artistes that reach the regional and international crowds.

Artistes scheduled to perform include Rocks Empire from the Redemption Sharpes Community, Ruffydan Thee Musician from Paul’s Avenue, Shaqman (I love you Bread) from Murray’s Village, Ayesha ‘Tik Tok’ Matthews from Campden Park. Tik Tok who was a main contender at the recently concluded FunFest talent search has promised a lively performance.

Featured act Vasita ‘First Lady’ Cain will top off the night. The Disc Jockeys include Hot 97.1 FM’s Chemical X and Heineken Green Synergy DJ Champ 2010 DJ Multivator.

“These artistes have their own special style and will give patrons a show just as good as any Jamaican or North American artistes; persons can expect a great show beginning from 8 p.m.”, said Compton, who added that First Lady is one of the few local artistes that gets airplay for her songs which include controversial hits like, ‘Ah Nuh Nuttin’, ‘Ex Boyfriend’ and ‘If yo could cook just clap”.

It was also revealed that a spot in the show is being left open for artistes who want to come and showcase their talent.

“Anyone who wants to come and do their thing can just come to the venue and ask for me”, said Compton.

The show is being sponsored by Carib Beer, Southy’s Barber Shop and Foreign Brand Name Outlet. Admission fee is EC$10.

“We are keeping the admission at a minimum because we want persons to come out and see what our local acts can do”, stressed Compton.
