The Jamaican RnB singer Sean Kingston is performing in Dubai next weekend.

Famous for billboard hits including Beautiful Girls, Eenie Meenie, Fire Burning and Shawty’s Like a Melody, Kingston – whose real name is Kisean Anderson – was last on the big stage in Dubai in 2013 headlining the Caribbean Carnival with fellow RnB singer Jason Derulo.

His set at the opening of new nightspot Vii Club on Thursday December 17 will include a few of his past hits as well as music from his most album, and its title is presumably a nod to the horrific accident he experienced in 2011, which almost claimed his life.

Four years ago, he was in critical condition after crashing his jet ski into a bridge in Miami. Despite a fractured wrist, broken jaw and damage from water in his lungs, Kinston made a full recovery and his near-death experience is said to be the inspiration behind his new record Back 2 Life.

The brand new club aims to rival some of the biggest nightclubs in the city and features mahogany wood-finished walls, bespoke designed DJ booths, a huge dance floor, oh, and a VIP area with a wall made out of gold coins. Naturally.
