As the introduction for the Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall (MKQ) is cued on Saturday March 12, Dario “3ple_X” Cummings will make his first appearance as the host of Digicel’s Di Endz segment of the television programme.
Anticipating his new role, 3ple_X assures viewers that he will deliver and give what is needed for quality programming. “Viewers can expect to hear questions they want the answers to,’’ he outlined.
He went on to explain that his block of the programme will feature a spontaneous-style presentation of delivery.
“I am bringing my own flavour, my excitement, and my energy to Digicel Di Endz. I just want Jamaica to know that it will be me being myself. I am not trying to be scripted or steered in any one direction. I will just accentuate the event.”
Having attended the first two live shows, 3ple_x says that he is anticipating an entertaining season. “This season is bound to be exciting. It’s still the early day, so let’s see what they have to offer. Normally the competition starts off a bit slow, but Castle Red and Castle Blue have shown a huge depth of talent. It seems the judges have their work cut out for them this year and I think the fans are in for a treat.”
3ple_X hails from Linstead and began his career in entertainment when he entered the Charles Chocolate Dancing Dynamite competition in 2009 and placed third. After Dancing Dynamites, he went on to serve as a choreographer and has created numerous energetic routines for dance groups for Dream Events, YVAs, Super Cup half-time show, and also company dancers.
Additionally, 3ple _X has worked with popular local and international artistes including Elephant Man, Ding Dong, Beenie Man, Voicemail, Konshens, Busy Signal, Rihanna, Jay Z and Razor B. Though he is known for his dancing talent, 3ple_X also emcees Heavy Weight Sound, and has also branched off to host several events such as the Magnum Run Road Tour in 2015, a few road shows, UWI and Utech events among others.
Digicel’s Di Endz have been hosted by Donald “Iceman” Anderson, Pretty Boy Floyd who was the longest standing host, followed by Dayne Chike Morrison and last season’s Dufton Shephard.
