Empress Impresses On Magnum Kings And Queens Of Dancehall

For a television show to be successful, a lot depends on the approach, personality and style of the host. Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall has thus drawn for the multi-talented reggae singer, radio presenter and MC Camielle Mullings, otherwise known as Empress.

Returning for the second season of Jamaica’s premier dancehall talent show, the young dynamo, who has performed at various shows locally and has also graced the stage in Japan, among other countries, believes a show like Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall is perfect for her.

“I think I have the personality of a strong, empowered humanitarian and a humble musician with a poetic vibe to spread positivity throughout the world,” said an energetic Empress while liming with the contestants after the first live show.

Dressed in a splendid yellow dress and styled by image guru Dexter ‘3D’ Pottinger, Empress epitomises confidence and grace. This success in creating the perfect dancehall image transcends the tangible and manifests itself in the vibe she creates onstage.

“I believe the key to being successful on any show is creating a connection with the audience; showing who you truly are,” she commented. Commenting on how she makes the show reflect her personality while still maintaining the genuineness of dancehall, Empress said, “dancehall music has developed over the years and has come to be a dynamic and ever-evolving genre with various artistes bringing their variety and continuing its growth”.

She continued: “Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall is a true example of this; fresh talents are being unearthed who continue to replenish the music, so for me it’s all about dynamism and style and talent.”

When asked about connecting with the contestants, Empress says she believes the competition allows the contestants to reach out to many, including the media fraternity.

“The competition helps the contestants to develop relevant business relationships and show their talent to the wider public,” she offered. As a media personality, Empress is committed to helping the contestants achieve this goal.

“For me, I assist where I can by having contestants, including those who have dropped out, and the winners, on my programme ‘The Corner’ on Newstalk 93 FM,” she said.
