She burst onto the scene with the hit single “Pat Yuh Pu**y” produced by her manager Hoffy for the Good Yute Label. The song had ladies doing just what she commanded in the dancehall, and she can be expected to exercise this control for a while longer with the recent release of the remix featuring international R&B singer Ashanti, which has been getting airplay in the mainstream. Now the only female to rise to prominence in the dancehall for 2008 is about to tread where only the brave have gone before. Pamputtae is set to grace the stage at Jamworld on December 26, 2008 for the 25th staging of Sting.
She has the lyrics and style which should guarantee her drawing her own crowd as well as getting the support of the other spectators, and if a clash ensues by any lady who feels threatened by this new artiste’s increasing popularity, she certainly does not lack the bravado to step up to the plate. Whether this actually occurs or proves to be only the wishful thinking of the writer, Pamputtae is expected to deliver a first-rate performance. With recent songs such as “F**k & Fight” produced by Seanizzle, “Ride It” on Mr. G’s Brawling Riddim and “Some Do Some Don’t” alongside Matterhorn on Boardhouse’s Clean Sweep Riddim, fans and patrons will not be disappointed.
The show as usual has a line-up consisting of the big names of the year and with the usual rivalries and controversies surrounding many of them, Jamworld will be brimming with expectant patrons and members of the press on the 26th. With its reputation as the greatest one night reggae show on earth, Pamputtae has the perfect opportunity to shine and demonstrate why she rose to stardom this year, but most importantly, establish herself as a bona-fide performer and dancehall artiste. Many will be watching her on this very important night in her dancehall career.
