Soca superstar, Hollice 'Mr Killa' Mapp, is geared up and ready to bring a taste of Grenada to the Arthur Guinness Day (AGD) concert stage tonight at the National Arena. The Rolly Polly hitmaker has been confirmed and promises to deliver a mind-blowing, high-energy performance.

"This show is an extreme opportunity and I feel tremendously blessed to be a part of the line-up. It's also a soulful feeling for me because I have been travelling a long time on this musical journey," said Mr Killa.

"I will be bringing nothing but greatness and an extreme performance, tonight I will give a 'rolipolicious' performance; myself and the Rolly Polly girls. Everyone should come out and experience greatness," he added.

Rolly Polly, a soca jam sung by the 28-year-old Mr Killa, is his breakthrough hit. On the single, the Grenadian singer unabashedly expresses his affection for the 'fat gyals'.

His passion for reggae/dancehall music led him to be one of the artistes at Jamaica's AGD concert. Mr Killa entered the industry as a dancehall act at the age of 10, and in 1999, at age 15, won Grenada's Teen Talent Search Competition performing original dancehall pieces.

With dancehall music embedded in his heart, Mr Killa turned to soca music when he was 17. It has introduced him to 'socaphiles' throughout the Caribbean.

"The Arthur Guinness Day concert is the best show ever. Looking at the line-up the show will be great - the marketing strategy behind this show proves it. I know a lot of persons are looking forward to this; every island will be viewing. This show is one of the 'wickedest' show of the century, not just for Jamaica, but the Caribbean as well," Mr Killa concluded.

The concert will also feature top dancehall and roots-reggae acts like Jah Cure, Bugle, Assassin, Lady Saw, and St Vincent's 'socaholic', Skinny Fabulous.
