Soca artiste Skinny Fabulous

Skinny Fabulous, the unmistakably energetic soca artiste from St Vincent and the Grenadines, is set to perform at the Arthur Guinness' Day Concert on Thursday, September 25 at the National Arena in Kingston.

He is known for his impact in the soca arena with the hit Head Bad, that landed him the St Vincent Soca Monarch title. There is no mistaking him when you hear the booming baritone voice echoing over the airwaves.

"Being from St Vincent, the show is broadcast live at heritage square on a big screen, and seeing all these big artistes performing in this great extraordinary event, it feels good to be a part of it," Fabulous conveys.

what Guinness represents

Many have their own view on what Guinness represents, but for Skinny Fabulous, it represents "a sense of hyper masculinity, extra edge of machismo; it's all about the empowerment you feel as a man drinking a Guinness."

"Guinness' slogan, 'Made of More', is applicable to any person who is trying to achieve something beyond where they are presently; perfect slogan for any person with ambition," he added.

Fabulous has a style that falls somewhere between soca and dancehall. His addition to the already stellar line-up of Lady Saw, Bugle, Jah Cure and fellow soca artiste Mr Killa, sets the tone for an amazing night, where patrons and Guinness lovers will definitely be entertained.

expectations

With songs like Behaving the Worst (BTW), Made for This and Hurricane, the artiste is expected to deliver an exhilarating performance which will, no doubt, have all patrons jumping, waving and revelling in the music.

Racquel Nevins, brand manager of Guinness, expressed, "AGD is a celebration of music and the life of a great man. There has always been a strong connection between Guinness and music, and through this concert we will continue to show that. The event is open to all our loyal consumers, with invitations obtained upon purchase of a six-pack of Guinness at participating stores. So come out in your gold and raise your bottles and glasses to Arthur Guinness on this special night."
