Following the cancellation of a concert featuring renowned Dancehall Artist Dexta Dap over COVID-19 protocols, one concert is still continuing. Jamaican artist Shaggy is holding a concert at Resorts World Bimini on February 26.
The artist, known for hits, It Wasn’t Me and Angel is expected to garner a crowd of fans on the hotel property on the southerly island.
In an advertisement, the hotel says, “Come party with Shaggy in Bimini.
“Get into the party vibe with multi-award-winning songwriter and hitmaker. Dance to his hits…”
Though Shaggy is expected to perform in the country, Dexta Daps was denied.
He was disapproved three times by the Ministry of Health and Wellness for a weekend concert which was expected to attract nearly 2000 people, at the National Stadium, Carnival Grounds.
Director of Communications Latrae Rahming announced on a local television show that the event was denied due to the COVID restrictions. The country’s COVID measures permit only 30 people for social events.
Since the pandemic, other social events have been canceled, but hotels were permitted to host such events.
The Bahamas is still in the fourth wave of the pandemic. As of yesterday, 22 new cases sprung up in New Providence while Bimini has no new case.
