Shenseea & Ding Dong To Perform At Concert

July 11, 2022

Local event promoters Envy Productions announced that Jamaican dancehall artists Shenseea and Ding Dong will be performing in Bermuda at  a pre-Cup Match event at the Bermuda National Sports Centre on Wednesday, July 27.

Organisers say “they have pulled out all the stops to bring back live entertainment to the Island, after a two year hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic.”

Nasir Maynard, CEO of Envy Productions stated: “We’re excited to be bringing the highest calibre of affordable talent back to Bermuda for this pre-Cup Match event. Due to the pandemic, we haven’t been able to celebrate Cup Match with the same hype and excitement as we usually do, so this year is a chance to make up for lost time, while also enjoying our culture, community and traditions with one another.”

“Both Shenseea and Ding Dong have visited the Island before, however, they are now returning at the peak of their careers,” Mr Maynard explained. “They are both doing extremely well right now and are on separate international solo tours. Shenseea recently left London in the UK, while Ding Dong just wrapped up a concert in St. Vincent in the Caribbean.”

A spokesperson added, “Ding Dong is on the #1 Billboard charts in Jamaica, with his song ‘Bounce’ currently listed at #1, while tune ‘Happiness’ is at #3. Shenseea, on the other hand, is on the world Billboard chart and is having an incredible year following last year’s success of the ‘Pure Souls’ song, featured on Kanye West’s ‘Donda’ album.

“Shenseea, whose birth name is Chinsea Lee, initially gained attention after appearing on songs by artists such as Vybz Kartel, Sean Paul and Christina Aguilera. In 2019, she signed a recording contract with Interscope Records and released a song ‘Blessed’ featuring Tyga, which has amassed more than 59 million views on Youtube.

“Ding Dong, whose real name is Kemar Christopher Dwaine Ottey, was initially a dancer, before trying his hand at DJing and performing. He is well known for his song ‘Bad Man Forward/ Bad Man Pull Up’, which topped the charts in late 2005 and early 2006, as well as a host of newer tunes.”

“In Bermuda, our most popular genres, particularly among the younger generations, are dancehall, soca and Afrobeats, which has been growing in popularity recently,” Mr Maynard said. “

That’s why we wanted to bring in Shenseea and Ding Dong down to the Island once again. Bermuda just wrapped up a successful weekend of events for Carnival and this is the first real Cup Match we’ve had in a couple of years where people are ready to be outside again and just have fun.”

Promoting events for nearly 20 years now, Mr Maynard has brought in a number of music and comedic talents in the past including: Eddie Griffin, Mike Epps, D.L. Hughley and Gary Owens. He said a lot of work goes on behind the scenes to make an event like this a success: from coordinating with the artists’ schedules to handling travel plans, work permits, accommodation, staging, vendors and other logistics.

“Conversations with Shenseea and Ding Dong’s agents to discuss the feasibility and affordability in having the artists come down started back in February,” the organisers said.

“We know this will be one of the hottest shows in Bermuda in 2022 and encourage people to come out and have a good time in a safe, fun and relaxing environment,” Mr Maynard said.
