Dancehall artiste Dexta Daps was seen partying with international models Amber Rose and Blac Chyna at Carnival 2016 in Trinidad.
The “Jealous Ova” deejay also performed at an after party, which the models hosted.
Craig and David Harrisingh of Daseca Productions were also seen partying on a truck with the models at the event.
Dexta predicted that 2015 would be his breakout year. Less than three months into the new year, he is inarguably one of the hottest dancehall figures in the industry.
His single 7eleven, released in January 2015, has become a dancehall anthem.
While he is extremely grateful for his achievement, he credits his rise to his production/management team and community.
“All of this I have to give to my community Seaview Gardens and my management team DASECA. They have been my biggest supporters and was the drive that kept me going,” the 28-year-old told media reporters.
Dexta Daps said it took almost nine years to get his breakthrough. He, however, is not surprised.
“I expect every song to be a hit and it finally happen with 7eleven and as a result it was easier to get a hit from the other songs. Songs that were done years ago became a favourite because people started to revisit other songs after hearing 7eleven,” he said.
One song ‘revisited’ is Morning Ride. Recorded August 2014 and produced by DASECA, the sensual single has made the playlist of radio disc jocks and party DJs.
The singjay is also riding on a high with other tracks including “Pretty Nicky,” “This a the Best” and “Jealous Ova,” a collaboration with female dancehall sensation Tifa.
With all the hard work and energy he is giving his career, the hazel-eyed entertainer said he has no intention of being a flash in the pan.
Dexta Daps, given name Louis Grandison, is a past student of Calabar High. As a teenager, Dexta liked music but said he was more focused on becoming a footballer.
However, growing up in a community that produced some of the dancehall industry’s heavyweights including Shabba Ranks, Bounty Killer and Elephant Man, the thought to become a deejay was appealing.
“When artistes like Shabba and Bounty got their break, myself and other aspiring entertainers saw how supportive the community was. We became empowered. I used to listen their songs and then go deejay them to my friends until I started writing my own songs. Seaview Gardens live for music and all of my songs some of which are unreleased, are favourites in the area,” he said.
Among his hit releases are “7 Eleven,” “Morning Slave,” “Slavery” and “Shabba Mada Pot.”
Dexta Daps is currently promoting his new single “Chinese Jordan” on the Day Off Riddim.
