No longer known as the Sony Ericsson Chill Room, Kiki’s redesigned set now has two top notch sponsors in Pepsi and KFC. These new endorsements are in unison with the new style and flavour of The Chill Room. The redesigned Chill Room has the ambiance of an American 50’s diner and like a 50’s diner, instead of sitting in a chair, Kiki is now in a cosy booth with her guests. The more intimate setting will go a far way in making the young Digicel Rising Stars even more comfortable on national TV.
In 2008 The Chill Room played host to some of Jamaica’s top entertainers including Marcia Griffiths, Lady Saw, Tanya Stephens Tessanne Chin Elephant Man. This year the plans are no different; with a slew of top flight entertainers and industry players slated to appear on the new set.
Series Producer Sharon Schroeter believes that The Chill Room is an important aspect of Digicel Rising Stars: “The Chill Room is very important to the overall feel of the show. It gives the contestants the opportunity to rap with some of the most successful artistes and industry players in Jamaica and also goes a far way in instilling confidence in these new young stars”.
The Chill Room host Kiki is very excited about the new season: “I am so buzzed by the new contestants and the overall feel of the new set. I am so looking forward to rapping with them and the celebrities that will come through The Chill Room. This season is set to be another tremendous success for all the fans and the contestants”.
With the return of the ever ‘rockin’ Kiki, the new designed set as well as a slew of top personalities set to appear, The Chill Room will once again add another exciting element to Digicel Rising Stars. The Chill Room will definitely continue being a favourite of not only the contestants but also the over 1 millions viewers who tune in to watch Digicel Rising Stars every Sunday night on TVJ.
