A few weeks ago, Jamaican-born, Canada-based, hip-hop artist Tha Vor announced that he would be working on the official video for his banging single, Star Wars. Since then, he has contracted Die Fire Films, a Toronto production company, to help him bring the visuals to life.
Though shooting started some time ago, Tha Vor is still unable to give an exact release date; this is due in part to the fact that they will be doing multiple scenes. He has also decided that this will be the first song off an upcoming project, which will include 4 other videos of a 5 part mini movie based on his life story.
The artist of the moment, Koffee, will be performing live at the Waterfront in George Town, Grand Cayman on Friday, June 14th. She will be supported by several local talents, namely: Stewart Wilson, Jnez, Spring I, Audrey Destune and Vital.
