Trinidad & Tobago and IPL cricketer Dwayne Bravo has released the highly anticipated music video for his widely popular single, Chalo! Chalo! which features fellow Trinidad and Tobago crossover artiste, Nisha B. Already gaining popularity, the single is available on the Dwayne Bravo YouTube channel and for download on iTunes.
The global release coincided with the cricketer’s final game of the India Premier League (IPL) 2015 after a largely successful two month campaign with the Chennai Super Kings.
Shot in India, the music video is one of two for the up-tempo Anglo/Hindi fusion piece. The second, which will be released in two weeks, will feature Nisha B and candid moments of popular IPL stars, including M.S Dhoni and Suresh Raina, enjoying their teammate’s latest musical offering.
For his on and off the pitch showmanship, Dwayne Bravo has also been given the Most Popular Cricketer award at the CEAT International Cricket Rating Awards, which he will receive on Monday 25th May in Mumbai. The event has recognized the world’s biggest cricket stars in a number of categories, the 2015 edition being a first for Bravo who is expected to perform the hit.
Bravo was awarded the IPL’s coveted “Purple Cap” award for the most number of wickets taken in this year’s tournament. The Trinidad and Tobago national also became the first player to score 1000 runs and take 100 wickets in the 8 year old India Premier League.
Of his latest accomplishments, a humbled Bravo said, “It is all for love of country. I want the video and song to showcase local talent and entertainment to the world and Nisha B was the perfect fit. As for cricket, I am blessed to be doing what I love and again showing the world what Trinidad and Tobago is made of.”
Bravo returns to Trinidad & Tobago on Friday 29th May 2015 where he will begin preparing for the Caribbean Premier League.
Because of historical ties and/or bilateral agreements between Trinidad and Tobago with India, citizens of India do not need visas to travel to the twin islands. However, one must procure a UK or a USA visa in order to transit from the respective ports for flights into Trinidad & Tobago.
