Magnum, Romeich hunt Top Performa
In a quest to deliver consistent entertainment for dancehall patrons and fans, Magnum goes large with its latest entertainment project, the Magnum Top Performa.
Top Performa is a lyrical cypher contest that is set to give 12 emerging artistes a platform to showcase their talents. The Top Performas will receive a share of $2 million, and a bonus for the first-place winner, a song and music video produced by Romeich Entertainment.
Entries opened on September 3 and will close next Wednesday, after which selected candidates will be contacted by a Magnum representative.
Top Performa is a pre-recorded show which will be hosted by popular dancehall personality Bishop Escobar. The winner will pocket $1 million and a music video, produced by Romeich Entertainment, while the runner-up will get $300,000 and a feature on a compilation rhythm from Romeich Entertainment.
Romeich Major, head of Romeich Entertainment, said that he is looking forward to working with the winner.
"I'm happy to be a part of the Magnum Top Performa project. The industry needs more platforms like this because we have so many talented youths in Jamaica and all they need is the right platform to advance. Big up Magnum once again for offering their platform and I look forward to working with the winner once crowned," he said.

Kamal Powell, regional marketing manager at Magnum, is excited about the Top Performa project.
"Top Performa will definitely be successful, similar to our other projects. Magnum is happy to be a part of the driving force that constantly propels entertainers to make strides in the industry," he said.
Powell said that the Magnum team is looking for style, flair, creativity, and good energy and invites all interested candidates to Tek Charge Ah Tings by signing up to be the next 'Top Performa'.
