BOOMBASTIC NEWS: Shaggy to perform at the PSL 2017 opening ceremony in Dubai

Getting bigger and better each year, the opening ceremony of HBL Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2017 promises to be yet another glittering affair with internationally acclaimed singer Shaggy confirming his participation for the event! That’s right, while it was Sean Paul blazing the stage last year; it’s all about ‘Summertime’ now.

Set to take place at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium (DICS) on February 9, the Jamaican reggae singer who gave us hits throughout the 90s and early 2000s will be one of the main attractions at the ceremony, which will also feature top celebrities Ali Zafar and Shehzad Roy. If that’s not enough, get ready to see Fahad Mustafa as the host of the show as well.

Expressing his excitement at performing at the PSL Shaggy sent a special message to his Pakistani fans…

“I will be performing in Dubai at the HBL PSL opening ceremony, I request you all to come and sing some of your favorite Shaggy numbers with me.”

Apart from the list of A-listers at the opening ceremony, PSL will also include a fireworks display and the carnivalesque, Flying Drummers. Besides performances from the singers, the captains, officials, owners and squad members of all five franchises will also be welcomed on the field during the opening ceremony celebrations of the PSL.

So, if like us, you want to bring that Shaggy-infused reggae nostalgia while we hum to Mr. Boombastic, book your tickets for the PSL as soon as possible!
