The UCF Arena was almost packed to capacity on Monday night for the big event celebrating Heavyhitter DJ Prostyle's Birthday. It was a great night for Dancehall as the young and very mixed crowd was extremely receptive to both Serani and Vegas, the other artist repping Jamaica on the night.
"The hard work and promotion we are doing for ourselves and for the music is paying off," said a pleased Serani. "There were females of many different nations and colours singing along to my songs which is very encouraging."
Aside from headliner Soulja Boy, Serani and Vegas were the night's top performers in terms of crowd reaction. In a star-studded line-up that featured big names from Rap, R'n'B and Regageton, both artist's sets were greeted with screams and claps from start to finish, underlining the growing popularity for Dancehall music in the US.
Serani goes to Charlotte, South Carolina and Virginia this weekend for 3 shows before heading to the Uk next week for the Brighter Days Tour alongside Mavado and Bugle. "No Games" continues to get added to playlists across the US, with 92.3 WNOW in New York and 102 JAMZ in Greensboro, North Carolina.
