Sanchez, will be replaced by international reggae/dancehall superstar Cham.

“Cham is a respected artiste, who has recorded hits like Ghetto Story, Vitamin S, Many Many and Babylon Bwoy, and has collaborated with international superstars such as Alicia Keys and Sean Paul. We are delighted he was able to accept our invitation at such short notice,” Edwards said.
