Brooklyn Native DJ Ricky Platinum Taps Into his Jamaican Roots to Entertain The Reggae Sumfest Masses
After a 2 years hiatus due to pandemic restrictions, Reggae Sumfest, the largest music festival in Jamaica and the Caribbean, returned back to it's homestead of Montego Bay, Jamaica with a star studded lineup.
Along with the biggest names of dancehall and reggae who delivered stellar performances to the masses, International Touring Dj, Ricky Platinum took stage to entertain the crowd with a combination of mixes that had concert-goers dancing and singing along. On night 2 of the festivities, the mixologist took center-stage in between crooner Christopher Martin, and the debonair Dexta Daps.
Without missing a beat, the Brooklyn native tapped into his Jamaican heritage, and armed with talend and passion, played live to the crowd, while simultaneously broadcasting to thousands via various live streams. Clamoring revelers seem to fuel Ricky who tapped into his early days of “Tipsy Wednesdays” (ranked as the DMV’s (D.C, Maryland & Virginia) #1 weekly event) and turned Regage Sumfest into the biggest dancefloor!
After an outstanding memorable performance, legendary media-personality Richie B brought Ricky back on stage declaring "This is my 25th Year on this Stage (Reggae Sumfest) I have never seen a selector at this hour of the morning create that type of pandemonium that you just saw! You deserve every Respect that you get."
Humbled and elated by not only this acknowledgement, but by the love emanating from the crowd, Ricky stated "I want to thank the Regga Sumfest Team for even considering me to be apart of such an historical moment! The chance to showcase my Talent at one of the Biggest Stage in Jamaica was Epic! Up next I have a couple of events I’m putting together back home in the DMV and more touring to different places with my talent. I’m currently on the radio in my hometown and I plan to help push the culture to another level with the platform I have."
