The Knowledge

Mr Boombastic himself is coming back to Dubai.

Jamaican/US musician Shaggy – real name Orvill Richard Burrell CD – will be performing on Wednesday at the closing event of the Dubai Film Festival 2015.

The It Wasn’t Me hitmaker can be expected to perform his popular songs including Angel, Oh Carolina and perhaps even his track with Ali G, Me Julie, if we're lucky. However the event is invite-only so only those with passes get to watch him on the evening.

His concert - sponsored by 117 Live and theAudience - will come after a whopping 134 films have been screened from 60 countries, over the period of one week.

Famous names such as Jake Gyllenhaal, Eva Longoria, Terrence Howard and Melanie Griffith were bagged for this year’s festivities, while movies such as Suffragette and Bilal were lined up to make their debut.

Shaggy, 47, will be doing some jetting back and forth in order to carry out the gig, as he plays New York City this evening and has a gig in Florida the day after his DIFF appearance.

The star has been playing shows here in the last couple of years with appearances at Cavalli Club and People By Crystal.

The DIFF box office is open online on at Or call 363 FILM (3456) for more information.
