by Kristy Ramnarine (Trinidad Guardian) Grammy-award-winning, Diamond-selling, Jamaican superstar, Shaggy, has teamed up with soca artiste Kees Dieffenthaller to make soca/calypso music popular all year round.Shaggy made the disclosure on the Tamron Hall Show on Wednesday.
Broadcast from New York City, Tamron Hall airs across the United States in national syndication on ABC-owned television stations.
Hall brought on the duo for her Tam Bam, who introduced the Jamaican superstar to a screaming live audience and asked him about the single Mood.
“Soca and calypso have been the fabric of the Jamaican culture for many years. My Caribbean people in the house,” Shaggy said, prompting loud screams.
“It has always been dubbed as somewhat of a seasonal music and I think it should pass that. Kees and I had this whole idea to bring it past it being this seasonal thing, because we said I’m in a mood. I’m not just in a good mood for Carnival, I’m in a good mood all the time.”
Hall then welcomed Kees to the stage, asking him how he felt about sharing the moment with Shaggy.
