Kingston, Jamaica, February 14, 2008 – When ‘Follow Di Arrow’ began at Mango Valley St Mary in 1999, promoter Dexton Ennis had no idea it would one day become one of the most anticipated events in Eastern Jamaica. The show emerged out of a need to provide top class entertainment to the North Eastern section of Jamaica but has now grown to the level where it even attracts a large overseas contingent yearly. Magnum Follow Di Arrow’, which borrowed its name from a song of a similar title by Bounty Killa, has for many years been able to attract the best of what Jamaica’s entertainment industry of the past and present has to offer.

It was in 2004 Magnum Tonic Wine saw the opportunity to collaborate with Dexton Ennis and fulfil the brand’s vision of bringing authentic grassroots entertainment to a national audience. Previously held at Mango Valley, the partnership wiith Magnum enabled ‘Follow Di Arrow’ to grown to the level where it had to be moved to a bigger and better location at James Bond Beach in 2006.

“One of the aims Magnum Tonic Wine is to develop authentic Jamaican culture and ‘Magnum Follow the Arrow’ is one such effort. We have done the same with Magnum GT’s Extravaganza which was today (February 13th) voted the best show for 2007 by IRIE FM listeners. Magnum Tonic Wine symbolizes quality and that’s what we bring to our events. Magnum wants to contribute to the development of the entertainment industry in St Mary and to that end we maintain our commitment to Magnum Follow Di Arrow” – Gary Dixon, Brand Manager Magnum Tonic Wine.
