CHAMPIONS IN ACTION THIS SATURDAY
As the smoke clears form the Dream Weekend in Negril, the focus move to this Saturday's August 15th, 2009 staging of Champions in Action at Jamworld in Portmore. With a line-up that many are lauding as better than Sumfest, the inclusion of Sizzla, Capleton, Anthony B and others is a calculated move on behalf of the promoters.
"Our show is not just about who's hot and who's hype" said the Presidential Click spokesperson. "Champions in Action is a showcase of the best in Dancehall and Reggae talent over the years so we've included artists that have proved they can deliver a catalogue of hits for the patrons."
A lot of anticipation is also surrounding Bounty Killer's appearance, after his show-stealing performance at Sumfest. His musical son, Dancehall's superstar international flag-bearer Mavado, is sure to repeat his fiery set at last year's Champions in Action. The Doctor Beenie Man is a perennial crowd favourite and will have the crowd unmoved until he closes the show. Local high-riding DJ Vybz Kartel's legion of fans will have the opportunity to catch him live at Jamworld and he is sure to deliver. With the likes of Elephant Man, Etana, Assassin, I-Wayne, Queen Ifrika, Andrew & Wada Blood and much more also on the bill, Champions in Action is perhaps the most complete stage show of recent times.
As usual a chunk of the proceeds will go towards the West Kingston back-to-school treat, for the children of the inner-city communities in that region, regardless of political persuasion, another positive reason to support this historic event. All this for just $1000!
