His modern dancehall classic; Feelings (Remix) featuring Jada Kingdom has now hit 22 million views on YouTube and similar to the Hyundai brand, he is poised to increase his irrefutable command over the Jamaican market.
"D’Yani, is an artist that I’m proud to say I discovered in 2008. We were in high school at the time and we both represented Wolmer’s Boys School as footballers. I literally was walking past the pipe and heard him singing while he was washing his face in between classes and I knew in that very moment, he has a voice that would change the world. It’s amazing to be able to perform with him 15 years later and even more amazing that we remained friends”, stated Stefan Ricardo Bowes, C.E.O & Interactive Art Director for Hi Esteem Agency.
With this being its second staging, Hyundai has partnered with the Agency as title sponsor for the event and under the guidance of commercial manager Etmour Williams, Hyundai Jamaica has seen tremendous growth in its brand equity and cultural relevance in recent times. The commitment to a modern premium vehicle calibre, has now expanded beyond just the machines and is now establishing a strong lifestyle element to the brand In Jamaica.

This event is a testament that when different cultures, ideas, synergies and artistic expressions collide, something extraordinary is born.
