Whappingz Thursdays finds new home
Whappingz Thursdays is now up and running in the parking lot at Mystic Plaza, 78 3/4 Hagley Park Road, Kingston 11.
The event had to be moved from Mahoe Drive in St Andrew because of violence in the area.
Bobby Phantom, the promoter of Whappingz Thursdays, said that the venue is new, but the vibe will remain the same.
"The event took a break and some people said that Whappingz will not be held anymore, and I live to prove them wrong. Just look at us now," Phantom said, adding that patrons are able to party in a safe and convenient environment.
Over the years, Whappingz Thursdays became a popular feature of Kingston's nightlife for locals and visitors seeking an authentic dancehall experience. Teams from Germany, Israel, and Japan are among the foreigners who attend weekly.
The party has also attracted the likes of Beenie Man, singer Ghost, veteran dancer John Hype, entertainer Chi Ching Ching, dancer Energy, and Japanese dancer Kiss Kiss.
Here are highlights from the party.
