Mr Lexx set for Magnum Xplosion Jamaica
Veteran dancehall artiste Mr Lexx is among an impressive roster of local acts confirmed for Magnum Tonic Wine’s Magnum Xplosion Stage Show series grand finale, the curtain closer to an almost year long campaign for the brand.
Other confirmed acts include Ding Dong, Aidonia, Govana, Spice and Agent Sasco.
Mr Lexx, born Christopher George Palmer, was among the standout dancehall acts to have emerged in the 1990s. He promises to deliver a performance nothing short of epic and says true dancehall fans will be served a tasteful reminder of the early 2000’s but should expect some new work as well.
“Music is constant so while I plan to please the fans with the hits they know and love, I will be bringing some new energy as well. The work never stops and every performance will reflect that. Stage show ago get shell,” he said.
Lexx, who says years of experience, work in his favour, said “Dancehall is full of new talent, everyday there is another artiste or someone somewhere making music but experience is a plus for me. I’ve been doing this for years and doing it all over the world so I’m no stranger to this and everybody knows that.”
Known for his theatrical performance style and tendency to engage female fans, Mr Lexx says he’s all about pleasing the ladies, despite some of his earlier songs such as 'Cook' and 'Good Hole' having rubbed them the wrong.
“The ladies know it’s all good and I’m definitely performing for my female fans. Music is art and art mimics life. It’s the reality that some women cant cook, my music is reality but its all for fun, not to offend anyone,” he said, adding “I just want all my fans to turn out for Magnum Xplosion, it will be an incredible show. For the fans that haven’t seen Lexx in awhile, this is the opportunity.”
Magnum Xplosion is slated for Friday, December 14, at Melbourne Cricket Club in Kingston. Admission is $1,500 presold, $2,000 at the gate. The grand finale brings to a close a series of events held in Guyana, Trinidad, Barbados, Bahamas and St Lucia.
