Sean Kingston’s first impression of Rarotonga is that it feels ‘amazing’.


“It’s just beautiful,” says the Jamaican-American teen pop icon, who met with CINews very briefly at 88FM during his rounds yesterday.

Travelling with six others including security, a photographer, an assistant, DJ Twin and a tour manager, Kingston and his troupe are squeezing in as much sightseeing and tours as they can on their whirlwind visit.

Staying on the beachfront during their trip, the group have tasted good local food, met friendly locals, experienced a traditional welcome and love the sweetness of our fresh nu.

Expect to hear Kingston’s greatest hits tonight at the Hula Bar including his single Beautiful Girls released in May 2007 that was popular locally back in the day.

“It’s about the energy. If the crowd gives me more, I’ll give back more,” he vows.

Early bird tickets for the show are $40 for general admission (GA) and $100 for VIP. Door sales are $60 GA and $120 VIP.

Born February 3, 1990 in Miami, Florida and named KiSean Paul Anderson, the singer-songwriter was the first of three children born to Janice Turner. The family moved to Jamaica when Kingston was six before migrating back to the US when he was in high school.

Kingston has been involved in serveral collaborations with big names, most notably in 2010 with Justin Bieber on Eenie Meenie.

Kingston’s tour departs the island on Thursday morning.
