Justin ‘Jus Jay’  King has now made history by becoming the first ever Red Bull 3Style Caribbean Champion!

The Barbadian DJ was able to snatch the honor from five other regional DJs including DJ Quest, DJ SPINN, Maripaez, Dartzero75 and Untouchable performing in the country of Panama last night. 

This now means Jus Jay will advance to compete at the World Finals in Russia in April next year. 

This is the very first time the Caribbean leg of the competition has been undertaken.

Previously Barbados' only other DJ to make it to the world competition was DJ Puffy who excited the crowd and judges to become the 2016 3Style World Champion.

Jus Jay has received massive support from Barbadians, with Culture Minister John King offering congratulations on Twitter :  

"Congratulations to @JusJayKing on winning the Caribbean finals. I look forward to your participation in Russia in April as you continue to fly the Barbados flag. This has been a great year for you."
