The reggae and dancehall dominance seen in 2020 continues with news that Beenie Man, Koffee, Shenseea, Bounty Killer and Skip Marley will be among the scheduled performers and special guests at the BET Hip Hop Awards this evening.
The announcement was made by BET on its social media platforms last evening and early today.
A single tweet started the series of declarations of the genres’ upcoming presence at the highly regarded event.
“Yu no seh Jamaica ah run tings! Thanks to Dancehall/Soundclash culture, Hip Hop gained its competitive roots!” the award’s Twitter page proclaimed.
It later went on to share that dancehall’s princess Shenseea would be “bringing the vives” to the show slated to start at 8:00 PM on the network.
If that news wasn’t big enough for dancehall aficionados, BET announced about an hour later that the ‘War Lord’ Bounty Killer would perform a set at the show.
That was followed shortly afterwards with news that rising star Skip Marley, of the legendary Marley clan, will also make an appearance onstage of the show that honours hip hop’s best and brightest.
And if fans thought that the news ended there, BET added this morning that ‘King of the dancehall’ Beenie Man and ‘Grammy kid’ Koffee will also be part of its telecast, that will also feature renowened disc jock ZJ Liquid.
BUZZ fam, if we weren’t hyped before, we certainly are now! Will you be tuned in to see dancehall and reggae on show this evening? Let us know in the comments!
