Shaggy is best known for his music career, but now the Wasn’t Me hitmaker can add travel guru to his CV.

Mr Luva Luva has just bagged a gig as Chief Caribbean Officer for Virgin Holidays , which basically involves reviewing luxury resorts, exploring the beaches, taking on watersports and hanging out with the locals.


He’s started the job already, and has been having a Boombastic time in Antigua, giving us all major travel envy in the process.

However, there’s a slight hiccup; Shaggy is about to go on tour for his latest album Wah Gwaan?!.


The good news? He’s looking for a Brit to come and cover for him in his absence.

Yep, you can basically step in his shoes and visit the beautiful resorts, relax on those iconic Caribbean beaches , and just immerse yourself in the culture.

Shaggy explained: “I love travelling around the world to perform, but my journey began in the Caribbean and I still call it home. As Chief Caribbean Officer for Virgin Holidays, I am committed to spreading the word about all of the incredible things that the region has to offer.

“Having just returned from an amazing trip to Antigua, there’s still a lot of ‘work’ to do, so an energetic recruit needs to fill my shoes while I’m on tour for my new album.
