Triple Olympian Usain Bolt has named his current favorite deejay for 2018. In an interview recently with CNET, Bolt, who is a longtime fan of Vybz Kartel, says Ding Dong is now his current favorite deejay because he likes to dance and have fun.
Ding Dong, famous for the song ‘Dancehall Madness’ and “Fling Yuh Shoulda,” welcomed the endorsement, noting that it is a big deal for him because it exposes him to a new audience who never know about his music. “This is a good look, because me know him deep wid Vybz Kartel music and thing, because him always a big up Vybz Kartel, (so) for him to acknowledge me like dat and den him say artiste, him never say dancer, dat fi show yuh say him consider me pan da level deh,” the deejay said.
Recently, Bolt posted a video on Instagram of him and professional footballer Leon Bailey, dancing to one of Ding Dong songs.
