With news that Grammy Award superstar Chris Brown and his long time love Rihanna are back together after sightings of them conoodling, citizens in Guyana are excited that the pop diva of Guyanese heritage may join Brown when he takes to the stage at the National Stadium for his debut performance on Boxing Day.
However, Hits and Jams promoter Kerwin Bollers wouldn’t confirm or deny the buzz that the Barbados-born multi-platinum artist may indeed perform on stage with Brown at the titled – Unforgettable 2 Concert, on Dec. 26.
In an exclusive interview with Caribbean Life Newspaper, recently, Bollers expressed the excitement that gripped the Guyanese community after it was announced that his 12-year old company- Hits and Jams Entertainment and Aruwai Plaza, had booked the R&B hit maker.
“We are certain that Guyanese would not miss this once in a life time opportunity, said Bollers who is confident that the 20,000-seat arena will be sold out because of Brown’s fan-base, and his added title as the next Michael Jackson.
“This is an opportunity that we might never have again. He’s an incredible artiste with astonishing dancing and performance skills that have been compared to the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson,” claimed Bollers.
“He is the current number one male pop star in the music industry and artistes of his magnitude rarely ever visit this part of the world.
“Chris Brown and his team are extremely excited to visit Guyana,” added Bollers whose company had over the years welcomed to Guyana, huge stars such as Trey Songz, Eve, Rick Ross, Neyo, Machael Montano, Donnie McClurkin and Konshens and others.
The multi-platinum performer will arrive in the country for just one show and will make several public appearances before being interviewed at a press conference. He will also be interviewed on radio and television.
Hits and Jams stated that its mega events are aimed to promote tourism in Guyana and are strategically held during certain seasons to attract visitors from several Caribbean countries, including Brazil and Suriname where the show is promoted.
The entertainment group thanked the Ministry of Tourism for its steadfast support of its productions over the years.
“We are urging fans to mark their calendars and make this event their official gift for the Christmas holiday,” added Bollers.
Minister of Tourism Arfaan Ali in turn waved the Christmas tax in an effort to attract not only expats, but other visitors that would bring foreign currency into the country to boost the local business environment.
