During the match between the Jamaica Tallawah and the Trinbago Knight Riders in Jamaica, a performance from dancehall icon Beenie Man gave the crowd more than they were expecting. In light of some technical issues during the intermission of the Hero CPL match, Bennie Man managed to answer the crowd’s calls to perform a cappella. Performing the deejays signature songs, Girl’s Prayer and Dem Get Heart Attack, he poked fun at the sound issues saying,
“After the sound bruk down fi bout three minutes, dem seh mi only have 12 minutes, so everybody, come mek we do this. I’m ok!”
The Digicel Appleton Estate will conclude its entertainment package with a performance from fan favorite reggae singer, Sanchez.
