Port-of-Spain, Trinidad. October 2011————- Some very big names in Caribbean entertainment will knock glasses this Sunday in Jamaica. The lone Trinidad and Tobago artiste among the specially invited guests is none other than Shurwayne Winchester, who also happens to be the only T&T featured on the dancehall riddim- The Overproof riddim.
The occasion for Sunday’s event is the official launch party for the JA Productions produced riddim on which artistes like Mavado, Beenie Man, Wayne Marshall, Bounty Killer and T&T’s soca rude boy, Shurwayne Winchester have contributed seamless hits. In T&T, Winchester’s single on the Overproof riddim, Wine On It, has been on the tip of everyone’s tongue. Many were shocked upon realising that Tobago-born Winchester was so effortlessly able to jump on the riddim, creating a frenzy of excitement among fans- especially those of the feminine persuasion.
The event, which is being held at Carlos Café in New Kingston, Jamaica will also be the launching pad for a brand new video that features Mavado and fellow artiste, Navino. The gathering on Sunday, which will feature the music of a slate of artistes including Shurwayne, reiterates statements made by JA Productions’ producer, Justus Arison in early August when Wine On It was released. Back then he’d joyously noted that Shurwayne would be the artiste out of T&T to truly bridge the gap between Jamaica and the soca loving island, and thus far, the airplay being enjoyed in T&T for both the Jamaican artistes and Shurwayne, is proof that Arison’s prediction was certainly on point. Shurwayne, commenting on receiving the invitation explained that while he would have loved to be there on Sunday, he would have to miss out on the fun this time around as a result of pre-scheduled engagements. He however assured that he is, and will continue to be in constant contact with the team in Jamaica.
