Davianah ready to 'Ravish' Chug It



Reggae artiste Davianah will be showcasing her dancehall persona when she hits the stage at the ‘Chug It’ show which will be held at Sugarman’s Beach on Sunday in Portmore, St Catherine.

“It will be my birthday so I am going there to titillate the audience and hold a good vibes,” Davianah said.

Davianah, who is known for being the daughter of Tony Rebel, has courted controversy with her risqué lyrics and skimpy outfits. She famously clashed with her father earlier this year at Rebel Salute with her outfit selection.

She will be doing provocative songs like ‘Ravish’ and ‘Good Vibes’ at Chug It.

“I am an entertainer, I can fit in with any crowd,” she said.

She will be releasing her debut seven track EP, 'Rasta Picknii' in August.

"The EP will have seven songs and it will be strictly reggae hence the title, 'Rasta Picknii' as it will showcase my cultural side," Davianah, whose real name is Davahu Barrett, said. 

Some of the songs include 'Break My Heart', 'Stir It Up' and 'Move'. She is aiming for a summer release for the project. 

The 24-year-old artiste plans to shoot a video for a separate single, ‘Supergirl’ soon.

"I have quite a number of new singles that I have already recorded, I haven't stopped pushing my dancehall persona, my EP is just designed to show a more cultural side of Davianah," she said.

Davianah raised eyebrows earlier this year when she performed at Rebel Salute in a nude-coloured pantyhose and mint-green wig, and later sparked a major conflict with her father with a scathing Instagram pose attacking her father's hypocrisy. 

Born July 28, 1992, Davianah debuted at Reggae Sumfest 2011 during Tony Rebel's set, doing a cover of Estelle's 'Come Over' that elicited a huge response from the crowd. She performed on Reggae Sumfest 2017 and 'Reggae on the Hill' in Barbados. She has become known for her melodic attractive reggae freestyles and also controversial hard-hitting hardcore freestyles that have won her numerous fans through social media. 

"I am coming for everything they said I couldn't have. It is not easy being a second generation star, but I welcome the challenge," she said.
