Diamond-selling dancehall/ reggae superstar Orville Burrell, popularly known as Shaggy, will be the featured act at the Negril One Love Reggae Concert winter series show which takes place tomorrow at the Negril Escape Resort.
Shaggy came to international prominence in the early 1990s with a cover of the Folks Brothers Ska hit Oh Carolina; since then he has become a household name worldwide having sold millions of album and singles.
Shaggy’s impressive catalogue boasts several international chart toppers such as It Wasn’t Me, Angel, Boombastic, In The Summer Time, Luv Me Luv Me, Hey Sexy Lady and Wild Tonite.
Shaggy is also a very exciting stage performer and he never fails to connect with his audience. The ladies never seem to get enough of his suggestive stage antics. It is expected that his appearance at the Negril Escape Resort will be another memorable event.
Also in the line-up for this event is Rayvon who is Shaggy’s long-time stablemate and collaborator, and local acts Terry Wonder and Escapade.
