Dancehall stars ignite Magnum Xplosion
Jamaican dancehall artistes Ding Dong and Aidonia were among a stellar line-up of Caribbean powerhouse acts for Magnum Xplosion.
The Magnum Xplosion stage show series served as the official launch of the brand in Guyana, and will move through the Caribbean, bringing the very best in regional talent to the stage in separate territories.
The line-up included Guyanese local acts Jomo, Timeka Marshall, Determined, and Fusion, in addition to the Trinidadian 'Soca Viking' Bunji Garlin.
The standout performances of the night, however, belonged to the dancehall acts, as both served up exceptional sets leaving the crowd of more than 3,200 patrons clamouring for more.
Audience interaction was a game changer for the Magnum Tonic Wine Caribbean ambassador, Ding Dong, who, after having several audience members on stage, breached the barricades and crossed into the general section where he was immediately met by adoring fans.
His audience romp was short-lived as Ding Dong returned to the stage to perform crowd favourites, Fling, Flairy, and Genna Bounce.
Aidonia did not disappoint as headliner, capping a show that covered all the major bases. The dancehall front-runner performed a full 45-minute set, including current hits Yeah Yeah and Breeze.
The Magnum Xplosion regional concert tour moves next to Barbados on April 22. The show, slated for Pirates Cove, will feature Shenseea, Aidonia, Ding Dong and Dj Puffy with a slew of other local acts.
