I-Octane delivered a solid performance at Life Fest
I-Octane was in fine form at Life Fest which was held at the Ranny Williams Entertainment Complex last Saturday.
The singjay connected instantly with the large crowd that turned out to support the cause.
He quickly launched into Mama You Alone dedicating it to Sharon Gapoor, the mother of Carlyle.
Then it was on to hard hitting singles such as Stab Vampire, My Life and Lose A Friend. When Octane struck the first notes of Lose a Friend there was a deafening roar in the venue forcing the singjay to “wheel and come again”.
When I-Octane made his exit it was to a totally satisfied crowd.
LifeFest was not all about I-Octane as the Marleys - Stephen and Damian gave a performance worthy of their rich heritage.
Capleton gave a highly charged performance as did the fire mumma Queen Ifrica who had many scampering closer to the stage.
Big Ship artistes represented to the fullest with artistes Chino, Laden and stephen Di Genius, but it was Chino who earned the loudest cheers with crowd favourites From Mawing and Pon Yuh Head.
Spragga Benz held his own with the songs Peace and Wi Nuh Like.
Richie Spice could do no wrong with Ghetto Girl and Brown Skin.
International acts on the stage Jazmine Sullivan and Alison Hinds represented well.
All in all LifeFest turned out to be a really great experience one can only wonder what next year will entail.
