POPCAAN will make his Rebel Salute make a big appearance this year, performing under his given name Andre Hugh Sutherland.
Revolt Salute, the two-day celebration sorted out by artiste-turned-promoter Tony Rebel, is set for January 13 and 14 at the Richmond Estate in Priory, St Ann.
Generally an exposã© for defenders of the roots-reggae class, this is not the first occasion when that Tony Rebel and his group are opening up the celebration to dancehall acts. Be that as it may, these demonstrations have dependably performed under their given names, instead of their prominent monikers. David Brooks otherwise known as Mavado, Rodney Price otherwise known as Bounty Killer, Moses Davis otherwise known as Beenie Man, and Marion Hall otherwise known as Lady Saw have all showed up on the Rebel Salute arrange. Taking after her submersion, Hall — who is presently a gospel artiste — is one of the celebration’s main events this year.

He contended that Rebel Salute must be comprehensive and offer a scope of acts.
“Dancehall artistes must demonstrate that they are adaptable and proficient. On the off chance that I am welcome to a dancehall show, will respond to the call and give a valiant effort. Our show is still a cognizant reggae appear and Andre Sutherland, similar to the next dancehall acts who have showed up, will demonstrate that they comprehend what they are doing,” Tony Rebel told the Jamaica Observer.
Considering Popcaan’s collection, the promoter said there must be a discourse about the rules for performing at Rebel Salute.
“He played a group of cognizant tunes that he has and will perform there. That is the reason it’s not Popcaan, it’s Andre Sutherland, the great side of the man,” he clarified.

A protã©gã© of troubled dancehall artiste Vybz Kartel, Popcaan increased more extensive ubiquity on the track Clarks by Kartel. He has ascended through the positions to end up distinctly a true blue artiste through tracks, for example, Ova Dweet, Never Sober, Party Shot, Mi Unruly and Where We Come From.
