Continuing his solo quest, Triple 7 Entertainment recording artist, Delus, is forging with great speed and claiming his place in reggae music. With new singles Silent River, Get Away and Life heating up the airwaves, he continues to put his best foot forward. How?
On Saturday, July 30, 2011, Delus opened for singer, songwriter and producer, Ne-yo, at The Jungle nightclub during the R&B singer’s event “Rhythm in the Jungle.” Delus was a part of the line-up that included Stratdon, Hezron, Voicemail, Beenie Man and Stacious. Karelle Elizabeth, Compound Island (Kingston) Event Coordinator remarks, “Delus did an excellent job despite issues with the sound. The patrons enjoyed his performance and whoever was unsure as to who Delus is, surely knows now. The performers were hand chosen out of many who wanted those slots. The line-up was a line-up I wanted people to pay attention to and remember, “Oh yeah! I saw them at Ne-yo’s show. They are what’s gonna happen next!””
A staunch supporter of giving back, Delus has devoted his time to support several outreach programs. One of which is the Konnecting Minds workshop. The summer outreach program focuses on exposing participants to various aspects of the business industry as well as providing guidance on selecting the best career choices after leaving high school. Delus received a certificate for participating in a creative workshop where the attendants asked him questions about the music industry, the obstacles that he faces and how he stays grounded. Delus was also asked to judge a skit that the students had been working on.
On Thursday, August 4, 2011, Delus was a part of an empowerment seminar hosted by MDTV for the Miss Jamaica Caribbean Talented Teens contestants at the University of Technology. He was the only male artist to serve on a celebrity panel that also included reggae artist Barbee and Pulse Model turned recording artist, Sky Nicole Grey. The goal of the panel was to share with the contestants the importance of self-confidence, determination and remaining steadfast. Talisa Taylor, the assistant Program Manager of MDTV remarked “I am very happy that these entertainment personalities took time out of their busy schedule to participate in this positive venture. It is important that these individuals continue to aid in youth development and growth”. MDTV is the official Cable TV sponsor for this year’s Miss Jamaica Caribbean Talented Teens 2011 which will be held on August 20, 2011 at 7:30pm at the Louise Bennett Garden Theatre. MDTV is on Flow channel 393 and streams online at www.mdtvmedia.com.
Additionally, Delus’ management team recently joined forces with Afterbeat Entertainment based in Holland to handle the artist’ promotions, marketing and bookings in Europe. Michelle Gayle, who is part of the Triple 7 team adds, “We are covering all the bases. The goal is to brand Delus worldwide, reaching as many fans as we possibly can. It is exciting.” Stay tuned. . .
