Perfect 10 for Magnum Kings and Queen
Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall is back for its 10th season and ready to 'tek charge' of the milestone. Magnum has put an additional $1 million into the prize pot.
The 2017 winners will each receive $1.5 million, 50 per cent more than the 2016 winners. Tamika West, marketing manager at J. Wray & Nephew is excited about the new season.
"It has been a 'charged' 10 years. We have seen so much growth, from a production standpoint, to the talent that we have on the show year after year so we had to raise the bar yet again, and this time we have increased the cash prize." Hopefuls can begin to prepare as auditions start November 19 at Waves Beach in Negril. The auditions will continue on November 26 at Island Village inside Ocho Rios, then on December 3 at Tolan's Total in May Pen. The auditions move to the HEART Academy in Portmore on December 10 before taking over the Ranny Williams Entertainment Centre in Kingston on December 17.
This season will see the return of Stone Love's Randy Rich as the resident DJ as the show continues its partnership with Stone Love. The legendary sound system has provided support for the live show series.
"The show is a great flavour for dancehall and it is a tremendous effort in terms of giving exposure to young artistes, and even older artistes, who have been trying but unable to get that big break. There is no limit to what Season 10 will offer," said Winston 'Wee Pow' Powell, CEO of Stone Love.
