Nick Cannon new dancehall movie “King of the Dancehall” was premiered on August 2nd on YouTube Red and the reviews have been great.
Cannon revealed that he wanted to premiere the film around the time of Jamaica’s Independence Day celebration and he did just that because now there is a buzz around the movie inside the dancehall space. Kreesha Turner, who made her acting debut in the film, sat down with Nick Cannon for an interview on Hot 97’s Ebro in the Morning where she opened up about her thoughts on the highly anticipated film.
“I have to say that there was a moment when I got teary eyed because I was so proud of the images that were captured like the edge but the beauty of Kingston and even the dance culture,” Turner said. “So many people heard about dancehall culture but they don’t know about the sub culture of dancehall dancing. We have our dance celebrities and there is just such a surge in this vibrant community that the world doesn’t even realize how it impact the word. To Me I am a little bias, Jamaica is one of the most influencial nations in the world musically.”
