Women wrestle for Darrio - New reality series to feature a number of artistes
Sadeke Brooks, Staff Reporter


On the heels of the success of his 'Gal Siddung' collaboration with Konshens, dancehall artiste Darrio has secured a spot on an upcoming reality TV series, Stars Among Stars Reality Challenge, that will be aired on MDTV in a matter of weeks.

Producer, creator and host of the show, Alici-Ann Roxborough, says the idea for the show came out of a joke she had with a few artistes including Darrio. Essentially, she says 10 women will compete in an oil wrestling competition that was scheduled to take place yesterday at Dumpa Truck Sundays, which is held off Mandela Highway.

She noted that there were numerous persons who were willing to compete to spend time with Darrio, but they were forced to narrow down the number to only 10.

But before the wrestling competition, she said the women were interviewed about why they are Darrio's biggest fans. Prior to the winner's special time with Darrio in Montego Bay, Roxborough said all the women who enter the competition will get a chance to mingle with the artiste.

The oil wrestling, time spent together and interviews will be filmed and aired on MDTV in the next two weeks.

Meanwhile, Darrio, who is making his first appearance in a film, says he is excited about the reality TV series.

"It is a good venture, it's a good look. Acting is one of the areas that I'm comfortable in, so this will allow me to show off a bit of my acting skills," he said.

"Seeing that I'm not such a big artiste, the response surprised me. It feel good fi know seh they (competitors) find me interesting enough to want to spend time with me."

Mi ago spice it up

While the bulk of the activities is being planned by Roxborough, Darrio says he also has a lot in store for the winner, who gets the opportunity to bring one other competitor along for the trip.

"Mi ago spice it up and add my little touches as well. I have to make the ladies enjoy themselves," he told THE STAR.

However, Darrio is just the first of several artistes who will be featured, as Roxborough says she has been in discussion with Cham and Aidonia. She added that female artistes like D.I., Tiana and Stylysh might also be part of future episodes.

But the reality TV series is not the only thing on Darrio's plate, as he recently released songs like Gwaan and Wine and Gyalivant. Recently returning from a short stint in France, he is also gearing up for the RJR Cross Country Invasion. He will also release a new music video for Hurry Up in the near future.
