Sean Paul is coming
Grammy Award-winning artist Sean Paul and soca queen Destra Garcia will form a potent two-pronged attack during the Cup Match Summer Splash at the Par-la-Ville car park on August 2.
The pair will headline the event which promises to hit the audience for six, given the dynamic duo’s enormous popularity and success in the music industry.
Original dancehall and now internationally recognised pop artist Paul has earned 17 hits on the Billboard Hot 100, including four number ones.
His featured collaboration with Sia on Cheap Thrills was a worldwide chart topper for many months in 2016. He has recently claimed another top-ten hit with a guest spot on Clean Bandit’s Rocabye. His dance-friendly tracks include the likes of Torey Lanez, David Guetta, Eli Goulding, Shakira and Migos.
The Jamaican rapper, singer, songwriter, musician, producer and actor won a Grammy Award in 2004 for Best Reggae Album, Dutty Rock, featuring a rendition of the late Alton Ellis hit, I’m Still in Love with You performed along with Sasha.
He has recorded six studio albums, with a seventh in production, and featured in duets with some of the biggest names in music such as Beyonce, Snoop Dog, Wyclef Jean and Rihanna.
As well as a Grammy Award, Paul is also a Soul Train, MTV Music Award, American Music Award and Source Award winner. Also featured on Cup Match Eve will be the Queen of Bacchanal, Destra Garcia. Soca enthusiasts will be encouraged to dance the night away as they are thrilled to such hits as I dare you, Bacchanal and Lucy.
The host for the evening’s activities will be international radio personality Nizzi Z alongside Bermuda’s own Qian Dickinson of Bermemes.
Local DJs and artists will be featured in the lead-up to the international acts. Tickets are available online at www.Bdatix.bm.
There will be 500 early bird general admission tickets available at $65 and 100 early bird VIP tickets available at $150.
