Dancehall deejay Popcaan more than proved his merit as a force to be reckoned with on the dancehall scene at Reggae Sumfest’s dancehall night on Thursday, July 19th.
It was a special occasion for the deejay as he was not only performing for the first time at Reggae Sumfest as a solo act but was also celebrating his birthday. In a jovial mood the deejay took to the stage close to 3 a.m. and wowed fans with a slew of hits such as Dream, Raving, Party Shot, Nuh Sell Out, new hits like Summa Wave and more. The crowd rallied giving him ‘forward’ after ‘forward’ until his departure proving that he was more than able to please the crowds of an International event with his catalogue of hits and his growing stage performance.
The deejay commented, “Sumfest was very great. I just went with the aim to do the best, to please the fans, mi love how the people dem respond and mi nah stop mek good music and do well fi mi fans. Big up Sumfest straight.”
With Reggae Sumfest behind him the artiste has a number of shows planned such as ‘Popcaan Live’ at Shansy Beach in Portland on July 29th which is staged by the Portland Jerk Festival. He will also be at ‘Dream Live’ on August 1 – part of Negril’s Dream Weekend. The artiste will soon be back in Canada for a number of shows as well.
Musically his Girls Medley video, directed by Jay Will, has steadily gaining views on youtube as well as his video for System directed by Dayo. His new hit Popcaan Says by TJ Records was released last week with more songs coming out soon. Popcaan will shortly be in studio working on his debut album.
