I am ready to take Sumfest International Night 2’ – says DáVille
Fashozy international recording singer DáVille is very confident and optimistic that when the smoke is cleared at this year’s Sumfest ‘09 International Night 2 on Saturday, July 25, he will be the artiste who took the show.
“Fans can expect a special performance from me. I know it will be very challenging sharing stage with international acts such as Toni Braxton, Damian ‘Jnr. Gong’ Marley, Nas, Inner Circle and our very own stars Tarrus Riley and Etana, but I just have to stay focus, do my absolute best, win some more fans and give my ever faithful fans who are very supportive a very exciting and pleasing performance,” the singer said.
It will be DáVille’s second time performing on Reggae Sumfest. The first time was in 2007 when his career was in its prime. He gave an absolutely terrific performance that paved the way for him to perform on several local and international shows.
The singer who returned to the island for Sumfest said that after the show he will be heading to Europe for a few promotional stints, returning to the island for a couple days then off to do a few shows in the Caribbean.
His next performance will be at Mighty Crown anniversary in Yokohama, Japan. While in Japan he will also be doing some promotion for his ‘Icheban’ album on which he has the collaboration title song ‘Icheban’ with Japanese reggae group Fire Band. DåVille will then leave for a tour of Canada.
In between his busy schedule, the singer said that he is penning a number of lyrics going into the studios and putting the final touches to his next music video.
His ‘Missing You Right Now’ single that reached #1 on most local and overseas charts, is interestingly now #1 on Toronto’s Radio Top Ten Reggae & Dancehall Singles Chart aired on CHRY 105.5FM -The Beat with Richard Banton.
‘Missing You Right Now’ still enjoys heavily rotation in the dancehalls and on the airwaves. Another single ‘Never Gonna Cry’ looks likely to be his next big chart topping hit for the singer. Fans can also look out for a brand new album before the year's end from the singer.
Since leaving the group A.R.P. and going solo, DáVille has gone on to record household, chart topping hits such as ‘Always On My Mind’, ‘Yesterday’, ‘Can’t Get Over You’, ‘This Time I Promise’, ‘Storm’, ‘Missing You’ and ‘In Heaven’.
