Mavado for BET today
Deejay Mavado is expected to guest 106 & Park, the flagship entertainment show American television network, BET, today.
A statement from the artiste's camp states that Mavado has invited to be a guest judge for a segment of the show called Freestyle Fridays, where two up and coming rappers clash, with the winner going on to defend his title the following week on the show.
"Its always an honour to represent my culture and my music on the international stage," states Mavado. "106 & Park is a very popular show so it helps bring my brand to a wider audience. My fans are expecting big tings of me for 2013 and I intend to deliver."
"Its perfect timing for what we are trying to achieve in the mainstream market," said manager Julian Jones-Griffith in the statement. "Keeping him visual and keeping his brand out there while we put in the studio work is crucial."
Mavado added that he is currently working on some singles to drop on the market.
"I did a song with Chronixx that people are anticipating. I'll be getting back in the studio next week with Khaled and the Cash Money family working on more singles and collabs so I have a lot in the pipeline. I'll also be doing some more work with Dave Kelly."
Mavado also said to be down to perform at an NBA All-Star Weekend event in mid February, with shows in Poughkeepsie, Albany, New York and Orlando rounding out a busy month. He recently shot the video in Jamaica for his single Take It featuring Karian Sang.
