Sean Kingston, KatchaFire to Launch Digicel in Fiji

Reggae singer and rapper, Sean Kingston, and New Zealand reggae band, KatchaFire, will be part of the free concert to be held in Suva, Fiji, marking the official launch of Digicel in the country.

As reported by Fijilive, Digicel made the announcement yesterday and preparations are underway at Suva's Albert Park 'with the construction of what one local producer of the show describes as Fiji's first Rock & Roll stage'.

Kingston, who was born in the USA but was raised in Jamaica, is well-known for his hit "Beautiful Girls" and other hits include "Take You There", "Me Love" and the collaboration with Natasha Bedingfield "Love Like This".

KathcaFire's music is known throughout the region with hits like "Giddy Up", "Seriously" and "Rude Girl" to name a few.

According to the report, organizers of the concert 'are expecting close to 60,000 people to show up for the four hour show, starting at 5pm'. The launch and the concert will be held on October 1st.

When Digicel launched in Tonga early this year, artist Shaggy was brought in for the concert marking the launch.

The Carribean-based mobile company was awarded its mobile license in Fiji in July this year and is already present in Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Tonga and Vanuatu and has an experimental license in the Solomon Islands.

The concert will also feature top local artists.
