Lil Quan Wows New York

Bermuda's own Lil Quan ha done it again: supported by local artist Coshaun, from the group Dem Bies, the rapper won tonight's round of the BET hit show ‘106 & Park' in New York.

The two took 66 percent of the vote on the show, in which Bermudian viewers could participate – ultimately beating out favourites Fame or Juliet.

“I couldn't believe it,” said ecstatic manager Jonathan Talbot, while Quan – otherwise known as Jeremiah Steede – told The Royal Gazette: “It was really worth it – I can come back for the next round.”

The two performed a hip-hop R&B segment on the show, with Quan dressed in a shirt featuring the Bermuda flag.

“A great experience,” said back-up singer Coshaun.

The win also comes with $2,500, plus a chance to return for the finals – and a shot at performing with artist Diggy Simmons.

On the eve of Cup Match, the group planned to go out and celebrate with pizza.

The group thanked the Bermuda Department of Tourism and the Bermuda Arts Council for their support, plus Mambo clothes for Quan's Bermuda-themed outfit.
