Coming out dressed in army fatigue jackets stitched with red patches, Ruddock and Williams flipped their red, yellow and green-colored corner stage into one grand sweaty reggae and dancehall club-turned-block party out of Kingston. The dancers Kimberly Cotterell, Cece Tor, Don Soup and KingSauceGodPrezzy shook it up with the winding waist gyrations, headstands and heel toeing so hard, the floor started sweating.
“This is a dream come true for us being able to put people on a stage like this to go,” Ruddock said. “This means a lot to us, and this is the core of who we are. Our entire team is very invested because we love what we do for our culture.”
“This is a walk around the park for me,” Matterhorn, a veteran World Clash Jamaica and UK Cup Clash Champion, said. “Everybody on the team did what they were supposed to do, and we ran it like the NBA. The vibes were lit in Atlanta tonight.”
“Any crown you take home feels good, especially when you’re representing your culture and community,” Chin added.
To celebrate the occasion, Rum Punch Brunch decided to carry the festivities over into the Sunday installment of their much anticipated day parties.
“We’re celebrating all night and tomorrow,” DJ Jabba said. “The whole Rum Punch Brunch team is in the building, so we’re gonna celebrate.”
