Was the 2016 staging of STING left in the hands of two dancehall’s current frontrunners?
Well, according to Heavy D, of Supreme Promotions, PopCaan and Alkaline are the two main acts STING needed to pull the crowd inside Jam World.
Just days before the event organizers say “no STING!”
So, what happened?
According to Heavy D, money was not the issue. He further explains that both PopCaan and Alkaline refused to do the 30-odd-year-old event.
Meanwhile, efforts by Music News to get a comment from Alkaline or PopCaan were futile.
Instead of its usual stage show, on Boxing Day, STING is having an invitation-only award ceremony to honour entertainers and industry players who have contributed to the STING brand over the years.
