Beenie Man, Flippa Mafia, Mr Lex, Elephant Man, Camar and Spice turned the Xtreme Wet N Wild party at the Kool Runnings Water Park into high gear, celebrity water party.
Its third year in Negril, Xtreme Wet N Wild has built a reputation as being one of the best parties over the Independence weekend and also in Jamaica. This year, the party stepped its reputation up a notch higher by doing it bigger and wetter which earned it a Most Valued Party (MVP) Award nomination.
Selectors ZJ Liquid, Tony Matterhorn and the Coppershot crew kept the vibes strong throughout the day with great selections. The attractions on hand included fire breathers, a seven-foot-long snake named Gloria, Red stripe Bold , Smirnoff drinks mixes and food flowed non-stop throughout the event and the venue was packed in every crevice.
Artistes such as QQ, Jah Cure, Bounty Killer, D 'Angel, Mavado, Beenie Man, Flippa Mafia, Mr Lex, Elephant Man, Camar, Tifa, Suku, Rum Blood and Kingston's number one socialite Lena British were also seen enjoying the party , but it was Beenie Man and Flippa Mafia that got the party started. Flippa Mafia was in his usual form as he was teased by Tony Matterhorn and Cutty ( Coppershot) that his money was "dun", which he proved wrong by he started throwing money countless US $100 bills into the air.(
They soon teased Beenie Man about his 'flossing' ways playing his hit Eva Clean, but it was Matterhorn who got the biggest 'forward' from the crowd. Boasting that he has more money than the two and that he doesn't need to flaunt it by throwing it away, he proceeded to throw his Matterhorn cigarettes into the crowd. Soon Matterhorn told the crowd, "whatever unnu have inna yuh hand, throw it!", as patrons threw cups, rags, anything they could get their hands on.
To one side of the party, Flippa, Elephant Man, Beenie Man and Mr Lex were busy getting cranberry bottles and juice bottles cut in half so that they could throw water at one another and passers-by. A water war soon ensued as Beenie chased Flippa down the water slide and persons tried to dose the 'doctor.' Soon DJ Spice also joined in, as persons got thrown into the pool and others willingly jumped in.
By 8 p.m., persons were tired, staggering out of the venue and some still dancing as the selectors told persons to get out of the water.
