Alkaline to headline Orlando show | Entertainment
Dancehall headliner Alkaline and reggae sensation Gyptian are among the acts billed for Orlando’s Legendary Weekend show slated for this Saturday.
The event will also see Tifa, Iyara and Tashina among the performers with social media sensations Wally British and World Dawg hosting the event.
Alkaline, who is still unlocking new levels and basking in the success of yet another chart-topping Billboard album, namely Top Prize, will be making his debut headline appearance in Orlando. Gyptian, who is known for chart topping singles such as Hold You and Nah Let Go, will be representing for reggae lovers, while Tifa, who is on her ‘The Legends Returns’ tour, will be representing for females and holding her own, rivalling her peers in a male-dominated industry.
“Orlando’s Legendary Weekend is being touted as a legendary night of performances, capturing and representing more than a decade of music from some of its front-runners that have taken the genre beyond Jamaica’s shores and as Alkaline makes his debut headline performance in Orlando, I encourage everyone to make the necessary arrangements to be a part of a historic night,” said Rickardo Shuzzr, entertainment publicist for Alkaline and Tifa.
Alkaline’s Top Prize debuted at the Number 2 position on the Billboard Reggae Album charts; Number 1 on the US Current Reggae Sales chart; and Number 56 on the US Top Current Albums Sales chart. The album also went on to securing the Number 19 position on the Heatseekers charts which highlights ‘Breaking and Entering’ music, issued weekly by Billboard magazine, and Number 39 on the publications Emerging Artiste Chart.
In recent years, Florida has become home to some of Jamaica’s most iconic events, with the island’s top acts performing for reggae-dancehall lovers to record-breaking numbers.
