Alkaline is booked to perform in Jamaica for the first time in three years. Seems the dancehall deejay has headed to the calls to see him in action at home.
The Vendetta deejay is on the lineup for New Rules concert in Kingston set for March 25 this year. The move came just two weeks after his running with Beenie Man who was highly critical of him for not performing on any of the big shows over the Christmas holiday period last month.
Fans of both Alkaline and Beenie Man clashed on social media while both artists engaged in a brief war of words. There aren’t many details available about the planned event, except that promoter Monique Stewart of Brownstone Entertainment confirmed that Alkaline is booked for the event. The “Champion Boy” deejay has not confirmed that booking either. But reliable sources inside his Vendetta group told DancehallHipHip that the artist and the promoters reached an agreement.
Alkaline has been one of the hottest artists in dancehall over the past two years with a slew of hits and a successful debut album New Level Unlocked released in 2016. Despite his success in the genre, he has been absent from live events in Jamaica for close to three years. According to Beenie Man, he and his team deliberately priced himself out of the market to avoid performing.
