St Ann-based entertainers Xklusive and Shakespear are hoping to bring unity to their parish, with the staging of their Artiste Football Match.

Artiste Football Match takes place next Sunday, March 3, at the Drax Hall Football Stadium. Both entertainers are also hoping that the event will assist in showcasing talent from the parish.

“This event is aimed at highlighting some of our local talent. It is our first event of this kind and we intend to make it into an annual event,” said Shakespear, who is from the community of Priory.

He continued: “We are giving free admission to children because this is a family event and the artistes will not only play football, but they are also going to entertain the patrons. Our goal is to give part-proceeds from the event to someone or an institution in the parish that needs assistance.”

Among the entertainers already confirmed are Charly Black, Romain Virgo, Chezidek, Zagga, Darrio, Deep Jahi, Devin Di Dakta, Laa Lee Ranks, J Rile, Renee Six Thirty, Clymaxx, Buck 1, Grampa Entatain, Shemdon, Naveesh, Shak Dem, Anaicon, Cookie, Sutto and Loaded Meleik.

Popular St Ann disc jockey/selector Wurl Fresh will take on the role as referee. In between games, St Ann's finest; Illusion, Code 6ix, DJ Wass and Cut Stone Inc will provide musical juggling.

“St Ann is full of so much talent and we believe that this will greatly assist not only our parish but our country on a whole. Football brings people together and it will be an example of how we can unite and have a good time,” said Steer Town-based Xklusive, whose real name is Sudine Parke.

Shakespear, given name Andre Dyer, is best known for Put Me Outdeer.

Xklusive is known for songs including Big Money Popping and Ghetto Anthem.
