I-Octane rocks Digicel 'Loaded Christmas' launch
Hasani Walters, Gleaner Writer
A large throng of persons crowded the St William Grant Park in downtown Kingston on Friday as Digicel celebrated the kick-off of its Loaded Christmas promotion.
Scores of children and adults all made the stop at the park while on the way from school and work.
Digicel certainly did not disappoint them, as they had a superb line-up of artistes ready to hit the stage.
Hosts Ity and Fancy Cat, while introducing several well received artistes to the stage, also injected their own brand of entertainment, keeping the crowd laughing with their comedic acts.
Artistes such as Tifa, Jermain Edwards, Camaley, Popcaan, Shaun Storm, Queen Ifrica and I-Octane all took to the stage and delivered good performances, keeping the crowd singing along to their 'big tunes'.
The men from Gaza, Popcaan and Shaun Storm had the crowd in the palm of their hands as they sang hit songs such as Dream, My Life, Gangster City, Up Inna Di Club and Vybz Party.
Queen Ifrica also had her way with the crowd with songs like No Banana and Lioness On The Rise.
However, the highlight of the evening came in the form of I-Octane, who had patrons in a frenzy with songs such as My Life, Mine Who You A Diss, and his popular Puff It which was pulled up over four times at the crowd's request.
He gave instructions that the stage lights be turned off and told patrons, "Turn on unu phone light." Up went the phones accompanied by the glow of lighters in the night sky.
He closed a good evening of performances joined by a Digicel choir on stage singing his new single, Mi Love Yuh, as red and green confetti was released into the crowd.
