“After Ocean Splash ‘009 was cancelled in December, everyone kept insisting that we set a new date – the players, performers, media, people who wanted to come to the event -the response was overwhelming,” says Triple T Production CEO Tasz Smith. “I named this event Ocean Splash -The Refix because we remixed the line- up to enhance the event. The addition of Mavado, Twin of Twins, Stacious, Ding Dong, and Erup definitely brings an extra edge. In addition to his original role on the celebrity team, I-Octane will also be performing, which gives the stage show a nice balance. This time we ‘re-fixed’ the show so that it is exactly right.”
