MAGNUM Follow Di Arrow, which is the first major dancehall stage show for the year, is expected to marshall good support from dancehall fans.
Despite promoting the Magnum Follow Di Arrow for 13 years, Dexton Ennis of Decky Promotions believes this Saturday's event, slated to be held at James Bond Beach in St Mary, may be its most important staging. Ennis said the show dubbed, Be Positive, is expected to live up to its billing and set the trend for local entertainment in 2011. "We would really like to see the artistes coming out and showing some positive vibes because we all know last year was not a good one," Ennis said.
Top-flight deejays I-Octane, Assassin, Bounty Killer, Sizzla, Mavado and Vybz Kartel are headliners for Follow The Arrow 2011, a deliberate move, Ennis pointed out. "It's going to be good for their fans to see their favorite artistes on the same stage," he said.
I-Octane, Assassin, Bounty Killer, Sizzla, Kartel and Mavado are joined by dancehall heavyweights Gyptian, Louie Culture, Fantan Mojah, and Macka D
iamond. Musical stalwarts Coco Tea, George Nooks and Captain Barkey and Wickerman will also showcase their talents. According to Ennis, "I think it's one of the best packages we have ever had."
Representing on Follow Di Arrow from new talents will be Master One recording artiste Denno and he can't wait for his chance to shine.
"I am always looking for a chance to prove myself and it makes me feel good to know that I will have to "come good" to hold my own among this impressive cast of performers.
Still, Denno is not fazed by this challenge as he says it's what gets him going.
This is not strange to the artiste as he faced the tough Sting crowd last year and managed to gain their approval -- so he expects Follow Di Arrow should be an easier task.
