Two of the biggest names in entertainment in Grenada have renewed their contracts to represent the Brand of Digicel – Mr. Killa of Gouyave in St. John and Shortpree of Belmont on the sister isle of Carriacou.
Mr. Killa, whose real name is Hollice Mapp, has been a household name in Grenada for many years, from since his beginnings with a first place win in a Grenada Talent search competition to multiple Soca Monarch and Road March titles.
He has a track record for electrifying performances on the big stage and events all over the English-speaking Caribbean, US and Canada.
In recent years, he will be remembered as the first non-Trinidadian to get as close to the crown as second place in the International Soca Monarch of Trinidad and Tobago with his “Rolly-Polly” hit.
Another of Grenada’s finest, holding multiple Carriacou Carnival Road March titles, one Soca Monarch title and two Grenada Groovy Monarch titles, Finber Andrews also known as Shortpree, remains on the Digicel team.
Shortpree has always been known to deliver well written songs on various topics that are both catchy and entertaining, such as “Summer Time”, “For The Sake of the Country” and this year’s Grenada Groovy Monarch entry “This Mas’”.
Both artists have proudly represented Grenada in foreign territories and have songs in their repertoire that show their patriotism to the diaspora, while marketing Grenada to potential visitors.
The local and international appeal for such talent make them both valuable assets to the Digicel Brand.
“Digicel is proud to have both of these entertainers – Shortpree and Mr. Killa, once again, as brand ambassadors, not only for their entertainment value and popularity, but we are certain that they can connect with and relate to the people of Grenada, Carriacou and Petit Martinique, and that is what is most important to us.” said Ciaràn Burke, CEO Digicel Grenada
