Sting patrons are in for an even bigger treat as rapper Wyclef Jean has been added to the show’s line-up.
The announcement was made this week via Sting’s twitter and Instagram accounts.
Speaking with THE STAR, one of the promoter’s for the December 26 show, Joe Bogdanovich, said Wyclef was finalised recently.
“We’ve been looking at Wyclef for a long time now and we really like what he represents as an ambassador for good music across the board,” he said.
“He is a great producer, songwriter and a very good entertainer. This is another example of how we are uplifting the Sting brand and transforming dancehall and reggae globally.”
Bogdanovich said he expects Wyclef to do something spectacular at the show.
“He is going to put a sense of spirit into the show. It will be nothing less than awesome. Even though he is a class act who has done so much over the years, don’t be surprised if he does the unexpected. He might do something truly unexpected, and it will be the talk of the show,” he told THE STAR.
As for the rest of the Sting line-up and new additions to the show that will be held at Jamworld in Portmore, Bogdanovich was tight-lipped, but said, “as you know with me, anything is possible.”
He was also very excited about the US$30,000 clash that will take place on the night. He said the defending clash champion, KipRich, will go up against four booked artistes and two unbooked artistes.
“He is going to defend that US$30,000 winner takes all. It is healthy, competitive, clean, no tricks, the real deal,” he said.
