Chris Gayle maybe quitting cricket for a career in dancehall.
The international cricket has announced that he is teaming up with his brother, Vanclive ‘Father Bulla’ Parris , to launch a new label called Dutty Fridaze Promotions.
“We are going to operate as a record label and a promotions company,” Parris said. “We have already signed two artistes. Face from Rising Stars and a youth named Gage from Clarendon. We are trying to make good music. One of my other brothers is a recording artiste, so right now we just decided to put some energy into the music.”
According to Chris Gayle, the entertainment company will handle artist management, bookings and other promotions.
“As a sportsman, I am always in the streets and I love the music, and I know a lot of artistes,” Gayle said. “So, this is not something I am new to. In the past, I have organised charity parties and events to raise funds for worthy causes. I have helped to raise funds to buy sporting equipment for schools all over the island. So, this is just a natural progression for me to get involved in other events and other aspects of entertainment by doing dancehall events and getting into artiste production and management. And plus, mi just want to endorse Bulla ting.”
The company will be hosting their first event at the end of this month, Clarendon Fun Day and Foam and Water Party.
