Gully Bop on Wednesday said he was expecting “likkle more” than the 7,500-strong crowd that turned out for Sting 2014, as he prepares to headline tomorrow’s McKay Security Caymanas Live Entertainment Series at Caymanas Park.

“From mi born, mi neva guh ova deh. Mi don’t know weh in deh look like. Mi neva guh Caymanas Park yet, but mi duh Sting ah Portmore, an mi expect likkle more people than Sting,” the overnight dancehall sensation told THE WEEKEND STAR.

A Sting-like crowd at the Portmore racetrack would swell Caymanas Park’s Saturday attendance by more than 50 per cent. The racetrack attracts an average crowd of 5,000 for Saturday racemeets.

“Caymanas thing nuh so expensive like Sting. Dat almost free, and Gully Bop a deh deh. From Gully Bop deh deh, dat a guh sell off, straight up,” the new dancehall star added.

Gully Bop joins a select group of artistes to grace the McKay Security Caymanas Live Series, which started with Busy Signal. Other top acts to have appeared on the series included I-Octane, Spice, Tifa, Kalado and Alkaline.

Though he shot to stardom last November, a month before headlining Sting 2014, Gully Bop is a 50-year-old veteran formerly known as Countryman.

Father of three children, now adults – 27 and 25-year-old girls, and a 22-year-old son – Gully Bop said he has done his homework on Caymanas Park, which regards itself as offering “family entertainment”.

“Let me explain this thing. I am a very intelligent deejay; those songs you hear playing, don’t expect to hear that out of my mouth at Caymanas Park. I don’t deejay those things at VIP events. It’s a different crowd. You have to know how you are going to talk. A nuh Sting thing. All the prime minister could be in the crowd. You have to be very careful,” he said.
