Wiz Khalifa confirmed for Reggae Sumfest 2014


United States rapper and Black and Yellow hit maker Wiz Khalifa has been confirmed for the 2014 staging of Reggae Sumfest.


With the date to the much-anticipated show fast approaching, the organisers have announced Khalifa's involvement as part of the 2014 staging, July 13-19 at the Catherine Hall Entertainment Complex.

The artiste will grace the stage on International Night 1 of Reggae Sumfest 2014, slated for Friday, July 18.

Patrons can expect a high-energy performance from the Young, Wild and Free rapper with songs like On My Level, Remember You and We Dem Boyz from his upcoming Blacc Hollywood album.

Wiz Khalifa began to gain recognition in 2007 following the release of his album Show and Prove in 2006.

Khalifa then followed up with the release of his second album Deal or No Deal in 2009 taking his career to new heights.

Household name

The four-time Grammy-nominated artiste quickly became a household name and in 2011 was voted the Best New Artiste at the BET Awards as well as the Top New Artiste at the Billboard Music Awards.

Khalifa's first mainstream studio album, Rolling Papers, debuted at No 2 on the Billboard top 200 chart.

In 2012 Khalifa released another strong album O.N.I.F.C. (Only Nigga In First Class), which like its predecessor, also debuted at No 2 on the Billboard chart. The album included the platinum-selling single, Work Hard, Play Hard.

Khalifa has steadily made a strong name for himself in the music industry and will be a welcome addition to what promises to be a stellar cast at the Greatest Reggae Show on Earth.

Khalifa's Sumfest performance will follow the release of We Dem Boyz, the first single from Blacc Hollywood.

Speaking with Billboard about We Dem Boyz, Khalifa made reference to the single as being his biggest hit to date.

"I like We Dem Boyz as the first single just 'cause of the energy. I feel like it reaches so many audiences other than just a rap audience, sort of like how Black and Yellow was a big sports song. Just get everybody riled up, like more of an anthem," Khalifa said.

The album is set to be released later in 2014 and features Miley Cyrus, Adele and Juicy J.

In addition to Khalifa, Reggae Sumfest 2014 will feature Tessanne Chin, winner of NBC's 'The Voice', along with Sanchez, Chronixx, Jah Cure, Zvuloon Dub System from Israel, and much more.

Sponsors for this year's festival include Digicel, Iberostar, Secrets, Pepsi, Jamaica Tourist Board, The Gleaner Company Ltd, and IRIE FM.
