United States rapper and Black and Yellow hit maker Wiz Khalifa has been confirmed for the 2014 staging of Reggae Sumfest.
With the date to the much-anticipated show fast approaching, the organisers have announced Khalifa’s involvement as part of the 2014 staging, July 13-19 at the Catherine Hall Entertainment Complex.
The artiste will grace the stage on International Night 1 of Reggae Sumfest 2014, slated for Friday, July 18.
Patrons can expect a high-energy performance from the Young, Wild and Free rapper with songs like On My Level, Remember You and We Dem Boyz from his upcoming Blacc Hollywood album.
Wiz Khalifa began to gain recognition in 2007 following the release of his album Show and Prove in 2006.
Khalifa then followed up with the release of his second album Deal or No Deal in 2009 taking his career to new heights.
The four-time Grammy-nominated artiste quickly became a household name and in 2011 was voted the Best New Artiste at the BET Awards as well as the Top New Artiste at the Billboard Music Awards.
Khalifa’s first mainstream studio album, Rolling Papers, debuted at No 2 on the Billboard top 200 chart.
In 2012 Khalifa released another strong album O.N.I.F.C. (Only Nigga In First Class), which like its predecessor, also debuted at No 2 on the Billboard chart. The album included the platinum-selling single, Work Hard, Play Hard.
Khalifa has steadily made a strong name for himself in the music industry and will be a welcome addition to what promises to be a stellar cast at the Greatest Reggae Show on Earth.
