After a five-year break in the electrifying stage show Sting, the torch has finally been re-ignited for the 2022 staging. Sting is one of Jamaica's highly anticipated stage shows, known for its captivating fashion, fans and pulsating performances, held to propel and magnify the talents of young and seasoned dancehall and reggae artists. The Campus Elite Varsity team, dancehall and reggae artists, Ministers of Government, media personalities and fans filled the walls of the Jamaica Pegasus to be a part of the momentous relaunch of Sting on November 8, 2022. The relaunch greeted guests with an exuberant atmosphere, mouth-watering food and great music.

The relaunch event began with sponsors including Jacana, Rumbar, Wisynco, Wi Pay, Worthy Park, and Swift Rent Car Rentals, speaking about why Sting was their event of choice for December 2022. The sponsors expressed that this year promises to be a superlative execution of Sting, which cemented their involvement.

The Hon. Olivia Grange, Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment, and Sport, took to the stage to praise the sponsors, the musicians, and the Supreme team for their efforts. She used the relaunch event to break the news of her achievement in securing the land deed for Sting's previous venue Jam World. She expressed the vision to have the venue ready for Sting's future staging.

As the evening progressed, dancehall artists Valiant and Pamputtae expressed their excitement to grace the stages at the upcoming event and their gratitude for the opportunity. Music Veteran and Journalist Clyde Mckenzie followed to allude to the team behind this year's staging and saluted Isaiah Laing, Sting's promoter. Clyde also spoke about the rich history of Sting and the world-renowned talent that graced the sting stage over the years.

The event provided deep insight into the history and vision of Sting. However, the burning question throughout the relaunch was, what is in store for this year's staging? The 32nd staging of sting dubbed the biggest one-night reggae and dancehall musical war will feature Skeng, Jashii, Valiant, Jada Kingdom, Chris Martin, and more. The event will take its traditional form with the artists going head to head in a lyrical battle, proving who is the greatest lyricist.

The anticipation for the greatest stage show in Jamaica is brewing in the hearts of the performers, producers, and fans as the countdown continues. On December 26, 2022, the Campus Elite varsity team and patrons look to Plantation Cove in Priory St Ann to witness history.
