The Hennessy BRT Weekend event series is off to a great start, with an energetic performance from St Vincentian soca artiste Skinny Fabulous at the iconic Dunn’s River Falls’ Tranquility Garden in St Ann on Friday (March 10).

Fresh from an eventful fete season with the grand return of Trinidad Carnival, the artiste over delivered on his promise to treat patrons with a rowdy performance. He hit the stage with a high burst of energy which had patrons hanging on to his every word and following his instructions.

“All Soca fans let me see you put your hands in the air right now- Push them up and up and up!” he instructed.

He pulled the best from his catalogue performing hits such as FamilyUp and Up and Take Off Something, then ending an energetic set with his newest Nailah Blackman collaboration titled Come Home.

Soca lovers could be seen dancing and ‘wuking up’ during the magnetic fifteen-minute set of Skinny Fabulous with hands and flags waving up in the air.

Anniko Brown could not contain her excitement and was overjoyed with the experience.

“The event sell off, it shut down, all a di foreigners come fi shell the place, tun it ova, bruck it down- Jamaica nah good again after BRT,” she exclaimed.

While Gavin Brown, enjoyment aside, was impressed with the planning on the organisers’ part, who ensured that their international guests were covered.

“The event is perfect, the location is perfect, the sponsors are perfect- because you have access to Airbnb and car rentals. A lot of persons who come for this event are overseas, so they need both,” he said.

Guests also had access to hotel shuttles, river excursions on the falls, complimented by unlimited food and drinks.

Hennessy Jamaica, title sponsor of the weekend-long event, will execute the bar set up, provide various premium cocktails, and top tier engagement opportunities for patrons and consumers alike.

Kamal Powell, regional marketing manager at Campari Group, distributors for Hennessy, said the first event was just a warm-up for what’s to come for the weekend.

“We are pleased with this first showing, and we can’t wait to show patrons what else we have in store; this weekend is going to be amazing. So, hold on and sit tight and watch Hennessy create memorable experiences right before your eyes. We aim to please and want our consumers to enjoy themselves to the max, but of course – do so responsibly,” he stated.
