Dancehall artiste Popcaan, whose real name is Andre Sutherland, recently shared a pic of himself posing on his red BMW X4.
Sporting a nappy hairstyle, the “Kill Badmind” deejay sat on the front-end of his high-performance luxury vehicle at a popular recording studio in Kingston.
The BMW X4 combines lifestyle and performance and merges X-typical power and the aesthetics of a classic coupé.
With high-performance BMW TwinPower Turbo engines and standard equipment such as Variable Sport Steering and Drive Performance Control, the BMW X4 demonstrates its impulsive character to the full.
Sutherland grew up in Portmore, Jamaica.As young as seven years old, Andre trained himself as a vocalist and performer and Popcaan continued to follow his musical calling.
