Champion' Dwayne Bravo Packs A Caribbean Punch

Dwayne Bravo has had an eventful career journey full of fantastic stuff and an even share of lows as well.

Dwayne Bravo: Busy Man

After his team won the ICC World Twenty20, he immediately had to go back to work again. Bravo had over a hundred texts congratulating him unanswered in his inbox.

After the ICC World Twenty20, the Indian Premier League (IPL) was the next game for him, and he needed to represent the new franchise he was playing for, Gujarat Lions, in the best possible way. However, before that, he had a massive event where he shared the stage with actors such as Katrina Kaif, Ranveer Singh and singer Yo Yo Honey Singh.

Bravo's First Single

After Dwayne Bravo's friend Chris Gayle spread the song to the broader audience in the World T20 opening match, his single went viral everywhere. On the field, the song evoked the West Indian fight spirit and prompted parallels with Cameroon soccer great Roger Milla's wiggle in the 1990 football World Cup. Off the field, the song got over 12 million views on the YouTube official channel in just around a month after its release.

Dwayne Bravo's designer Bhavesh Shah, who has been working for him for years now, has put the cricketer's face on his campaign dedicated to global champions.

Behind The Scenes of Creating Champion

When Bravo was in Jamaica, he was playing with the lyrics with Colin' Raza' Wedderburn, and the word champion was on his mind. In just one day, they both came up with the song Champion, which went viral worldwide and on loop. 

The song is a roll call of sorts for Dwayne Bravo's heroes (Grammy-winning reggae and dancehall singer Beenie Man), mentors (Brian Lara) and friends (Gayle and Kieron Pollard).

They recorded a draft with a dancehall artiste, Gayle and Gage, and then the master version was produced in Trinidadian soca artiste Bunji Garlin's studio. 

As a kid, Dwayne Bravo hero-worshipped Beenie Man, and every time since 1998 he visited the island, he tried to meet him. In 2006, the meeting finally happened when a friend talked to Beenie Man, and then he invited Bravo over to his house.

Over time, they both became good friends and when Bravo joked about Beenie Man doing a song with him, he took Dwayne to the studio right away. 

Bravo said that he had no idea before that making a song was difficult and complicated, and that was his first time stepping inside a studio. That's when he made the song Beenie Man & Bravo, which made everyone listen to it on a loop.
