Valiant, IWaata to take Chug It stage

DANCEHALL sensations IWaata and Valiant are set to perform at Jamaica's biggest drink-inclusive beach party, Chug It, slated for Sugarman's Beach in Portmore, St Catherine, on Sunday.

Communications manager for Chug It, Vanassa Metzger, says party-goers are eagerly looking forward to Sunday's staging.

"The response islandwide has been phenomenal. Following our highly successful staging in Negril in October, fans of the event have been looking forward to the event returning to Sugarman's Beach. We're especially thrilled to be featuring Valiant aka Fada Dipo who will be showcasing his talent to his massive following for the first time in Portmore. We expect a substantial turnout and the organisers are making all the preparations behind the scenes to ensure that patrons have a fantastic experience," she said.

"Of course, with young entertainers like IWaata and Valiant, Chug It is staying true to its mandate of supporting Jamaica's dancehall music by featuring fast-rising upcoming talents. We are giving them the platform to share their talents live with the masses and in return we expect them to deliver the energy, excitement and great vibes that Chug It is known for," she continued.


Valiant is currently Jamaica's number one trending artiste. His hit songs have been dominating the local dancehall scene. They include North Carolina, St Mary, Dunce Cheque, Siance, Cut all Loses, and the recently released Scholar.

IWaata is also expected to electrify the crowd as he takes to the Chug It stage to reel off hit songs like Airport, a collaboration with fellow dancehall artiste Intence, Footplay and Clip Tall.

Since its inception in 2012, Chug It has been regarded as the 'go-to' drink-inclusive event for the masses.
