As an ambassador, Scrappy will be promoting and representing Montserrat’s music and carnival culture and other culturally relatable concepts to Montserrat. As part of his ambassador duties,he will be speaking or performing at seminars and events across the country and internationally with the aim of exposing Montserrat carnival culture and music.

Scrappy says “This is a great opportunity for myself and Montserrat in my eyes. I’ve always represented the music and culture of Montserrat so to be given a platform to share our island’s
talent is an amazing thing. I plan to make sure the world knows more about our rich culture.”

Scrappy currently has a new album available now for digital streaming on all music streaming apps titled Chapter 11.
