On the night when the iconic Stone Love claimed the coveted YVA Award for Best Sound System, Randi Rich was on the wheels of steel inside D’Entrance for the Live Premier of the Magnum Kings and Queens of the Dancehall and was left ‘selecting’ applause for this year’s contestants. The crowd inside the D’Entrance was left asking for more after outstanding performances from princesses Shaniel Muir and her beautiful, dynamic vocals and Mizza Bling who lit up the stage with loud energy and a no nonsense mood that got Ms. Kitty raviing. The Magnum princes shone just as bright with the likes of D’Agent, Jemineye, Accid and Skillarchy, early contenders energizing the crowd. It was however, Shemdon who lit up D’entrance with his loud performance of his original song Strike and Pass that connected with the audience and sent them into frenzy.
“The contestants go Loud! For the first show they really came out with a bang and if they keep up this momentum the show is going to continue getting louder for the rest of the season. Me Like It!” said Randi Rich!
The Stone Love selector is in his first season of the show as the resident DJ and quickly showed his class as he kept the crowd inside D’Entrance buzzing during the breaks of the live show, drawing forward with a barrage of selections across all genres. D’Entrance was rocking to the sounds of My Dream and other hard hitters such as Big Deal and Champion Boy which he expertly used to commemorate Stone Love’s YVA victory and the crowd was yet again ignited while they awaited the resumption of the live performances.
“I just want to bring a next level vibes and a lot of excitement. I am representing the World Immortal Sound, Stone Love so I always have to deliver at certain level and I think I established a good start for the first show.”
Week one of the live show saw 14 contestants, of Castle Red, comprising of seven princes and seven princesses take to the stage in a bid to wow the audience and secure votes that will keep them in the competition. The Castle Red princesses from week one were, Shaneil Muir, Kezzi, Kadjah, KK, Tequila, Rae Dyance and Mizza Bling while the Castle Red Males who took the stage were D’Agent, Jemineye, Accid, Blindz, Shemdon, Autical and Skillarchy.
