ShiGGa Shay is heading to the metaverse!
The Singaporean rapper is the latest act to grace the virtual stage of Bandwagon Pixel Party, a metaverse concert series hosted by Bandwagon Asia in partnership with EBX Live. ShiGGa Shay will be making his metaverse debut this 12 June 2022 at 10 PM SGT in Decentraland alongside Zadon and Cykko.

WHAT IS DECENTRALAND?
Decentraland is a game-like, virtual open-world platform that allows users to create avatars, roam through digital environments, interact with others, and attend super cool events (like Bandwagon Pixel Party). Think of it as one of the gateways to the metaverse.
Users can also connect their digital wallets to collect and access their NFTs.
