MR. VEGAS BLITZES TELEVISION THIS WEEKEND
Internationally recognised singjay Mr. Vegas stepped up the promotion of his breakout Man a Gallis/Sassa Step single by making appearances on the popular television programmes CVM HItlist and TVJ’s Intense this weekend.
Vegas performed the Man ah Gallis single to close the CVM Hitlist which will air today October 16th on CVM at 5 p.m, with a repeat on Saturday, while Vegas appearance on TVJ’s Intense will air on Saturday night. The Man ah Gallis video has also been added to the Fiwi Choice top ten chart which airs on TVJ.
The video continues to do well on the Internet, generating over 308,000 views after only 10 days on the worldstarhiphop.com website. The video, which was directed by Jay ‘Game Over’ Will, has been hailed
by dancehall music insiders as “one of the best dancehall music videos ever done”, and a major breakthrough in how Jamaican dances are filmed, choreographed and interpreted for presentation in the international marketplace. Most of the popular dancers such as the Jamaican Michael Jackson, M.O.B., Mystic, TNT Squad, Shady Squad and Shy N, the Japanese dancehall king, made cameos in the video.
Mr. Vegas first premiered the video at SOBs club in New York City, NY in early October and followed up with an encore presentation in Jamaica at the legendary Stone Love Headquarters that same week. In
the meantime, the singjay’s I Am Blessed single continues to generate excellent airplay on radio stations in the US, especially on HOT 97.
The I Am Blessed singer will leave the island on Saturday October 17th to perform at the Kush Lounge in South Carolina. Next week, he will be doing a pair of shows in Guadeloupe, performing on a teen event during the day, before rocking a show at the Lakasa Musik nightclub in La Jaille, Guadeloupe.
