Cocoa Tea to perform at BAA in March

Dancehall legend Cocoa Tea is coming to Bermuda's shores.

The veteran artist — who has produced hit after hit during his remarkable career — will perform at the Bermuda Athletic Association on March 24.

Reggae stars Tarrus Riley and Etana will be with him for what promises to be a memorable and exciting occasion.

Local acts have yet to be confirmed.

Tickets go on sale at Ptix.bm in mid-January.

The event is being put on by Spectrum Global. Their last show, featuring reggae dancehall great Mavado at Tiger Bay, proved popular with reggae fans.

Owner Rosie Cross believes that March's show will be no exception.

“The public can expect an evening full of excitement, especially with Tarrus Riley and Cocoa Tea,” she said. “Etana is going to bring her own style of music and I also think she will be a very good asset and mix for all age brackets. She is quite big and comes with her own band and so I'm really looking forward to that.”

This will be Tarrus's second performance in Bermuda in two years. The singer, who is perhaps best known for his hit song She's Royal, was last here for the 2014 Cup Match Summer Splash extravaganza.

“These are some very talented singers and I'm actually looking forward to seeing Cocoa Tea,” Mrs Cross added. “I have seen Tarrus Riley, who is excellent, but I have never seen Cocoa Tea before and so I am really looking forward to seeing him for the first time. We will also have our locals but we haven't confirmed anyone yet.

“We have a very good mix and I think that Bermuda needs this type of excitement. I'm really excited and looking forward to it.”
