MAGNUM STING 2014 to create history, two Stage Shows, Reggae and Dancehall for one ticket

sting

Last year MAGNUM STING made history when the show aired live on pay-per-view in multiple countries across the world and now the event’s promoter, Supreme Promotions, is set to present another historic first. This year’s staging will not only see the largest dancehall spectacle across the globe but also a full-blown reggae show.

On December 26th Jamworld will host not one, but two major festivals: Reggae and Dancehall – featuring today’s Giants of Reggae and the Reigning kings and queens of Dancehall, patrons can therefore look forward to enjoying two colossal shows with one ticket. Another exciting addition is the introduction of a brand new genre EDH (Electronic DanceHall), a fresh new wave of electronic music merged with pulsating dancehall beats, anticipated to be another exceptional treat for the audience at Magnum Sting come Boxing day.

“For the first time ever, we will have two major festivals on one night, this year will be electrifying! The number one dancehall show and the number one selling dancehall brand, Magnum, have reunited for this extraordinary staging. For the reggae show we will see the current major players in reggae. We have a reputation of always delivering the giants for a reasonable entrance fee that will not change for Magnum Sting 2014” Supreme Promotions head honcho Isaiah Laing revealed.

Magnum has been on board as a major sponsor of several of Sting’s productions throughout the years. Their relationship dates back as far as 2002. This year the company is putting major focus on the event to achieve monumental success.

Magnum Sting’s stage opens at 8PM with emerging artistes and the roots rocking reggae show runs from 10PM to 2AM, with the unquenchable “cyaan cool” Fireman Capleton who is bound to set Jamworld ablaze at midnight. At 2AM, the sweltering dancehall explosion begins with Magnum showcasing the Dance culture that is again making headlines. Magnum Sting climaxes at the traditional daybreak with the anticipated Clash.

We feel that Magnum Sting is doing just that and fans are in for an energetic experience.”

Condolences: Dancehall artiste Bounty Killer’s mother, MISS IVY has passed away


by Natalie Monique

Popular Dancehall International artiste Rodney Price aka. Bounty Killer’s mother, affectionately known as Miss Ivy (1941-2012) by many, has passed away.

The two shared a very close bond, pictured below, is one Sunday in 2010 at a time, when Bounty was facing troubled times, with highly Media publicized court cases and allegations, his mother, a devout christian, took him to church with her…a special moment for both. Bounty referred to his mother, Miss Ivy in many of his songs, giving praise to the woman he loved and respected, and often referring to himself as ‘Miss Ivy Last son‘. Miss Ivy raised eight children, of which Rodney was the last.

The artiste tweeted earlier this morning:

RIP to the worlds greatest mom bcuz she gave the world the greatest man ms Ivy Williams 1941-2012 rest in peace mama love u more than ever and all ways life and death is the equation it’s inevitable and u live an excellent life my mother my mentor my friend my a whole lot of things children Bawlie Bawlie/Patsy/(Sophia RIP)/Rodney/Wendy/Natasha/Marcia/Tamara and nuff grand and great grand not grief just disappointed why now jah?
