Internationally-acclaimed Reggae superstar, Gyptian, will perform at the upcoming New Year’s Eve celebrations at Times Square in New York City. The popular singjay is one of the headliners slated to perform on MTV’s coverage of the New Year’s celebrations on December 31.
This is regarded as one of the largest New Year’s celebrations worldwide, with over two million viewers on average to view the Billboard screen in Manhattan for all the performances during the celebration preluding the traditional dropping of the ball at midnight. Gyptian expressed his gratitude for the honour; relaying the notion that a Reggae artiste’s ability to make it upon this kind of international stage shows how far Jamaica and the genre have come. “For Reggae and for us as a little island to be far, it’s a good look.”
