Two of T&T’s soca superstars Destra Garcia and Kerwin Du Bois are set to headline performances at the Arthur Guinness Day concert at the National Indoor Sports Centre in Jamaica today.
The event will kick off Guinness official Caribbean Arthur Guinness Day celebrations under the theme Made of More.
In addition to the Arthur Guinness Day concert, the Guinness Jamaica team is adding “more” substance by providing support for the social initiatives undertaken by ten unsung heroes who portray the same qualities as Sir Arthur in the uplifting of their community and its residents.
Arthur Guinness Day globally, marks a yearly occasion to toast the Guinness legacy, representing a brand and its drinkers who are “made of more, made to do more, and made for more greatness.”
It is held in reverence of the man who created the beverage. The legacy, which started with Arthur Guinness when he founded a brewery in Ireland in 1755, continues to live through a great team and millions of loyal drinkers.
Stout lovers across the Caribbean will be raising their glasses (or bottles as the case may be) to toast 253 years of Guinness greatness during the upcoming annual Arthur Guinness Day celebrations.
According to a release, the concert will see other performances from popular acts such as one of the Guinness 50 Greatest Dancehall icons Sizzla and dancehall star Popcaan.
Arthur Guinness Day Celebration Concerts will include popular dancehall artistes Mr Vegas in The Bahamas and iOctane in Guyana. Viewers in Trinidad and Tobago can tune in to CNC3 at 9 pm to catch the Jamaica concert live.
The Jamaica concert will not be the only such event in the Caribbean and Guinness lovers across the Caribbean region including Trinidad, St Lucia, Antigua, and St Vincent will also join in the “Made of More” celebrations.
