Busy Signal for Battle of the Sexes

Busy Signal is now the ringmaster of Battle of the Sexes 14. The Jamaican superstar is a regular on the dancehall charts and has made his mark internationally, landing on the cable network BET’s playlist with a few of his singles including Tick Tock. 

 

“Busy adds great diversity to this huge soca stage of Vikings versus Divas,” said Spektakula Promotions’ Frank Martineau. “He is no stranger to crossover music and has collaborated with top soca vikings Bunji Garlin and Skinny Fabulous on soca hits.”

 

Busy Signal refers to his own versatility, lyrics and melodies when he tells the Jamaican Gleaner, “You are never going to have Busy Signal just doing one kind of music.” His taste for dancehall fusion and crossover appeal makes him the perfect ringmaster for the soca show scheduled for February 8, at the Jean Pierre Complex, Port-of-Spain.

 

“He will be bringing his high energy dancehall flavour along with some soca savvy to the Jean Pierre arena,” Martineau said. 

 

Always busy and always hustling, the artiste earned his nickname “Busy” from long-time friends back in West Kingston. Promoters are hoping that Busy brings this same high energy, get-up-and-go liveliness to the show and deliver one of his usual flamboyant performances. 

 

At Jamaica’s annual Reggae Sting showcase in 2005, Busy turned up on stage in a gas mask and performed to the utter delight of his Jamaican fans. This is the kind of unpredictability that patrons have come to expect from the Jamaican superstar.

 

“Busy will pull out all the stops to make a huge impression on Trini soca fans,” Martineau said. 

 

It may be a tall order performing before a huge soca crowd which will be rooting for the favourites such as Iwer George and Denise Belfon, but Busy Signal has such huge international appeal that he is expected to carry the crowd to where he wants and where they want to go.
