After two stellar performances in Jamaica at GT Taylor's Christmas Extravaganza in St Elizabeth on December 25 and Cream of the Crop at the Cruise Ship Pier in Ocho Rios on December 28, Digicel/Busta brand ambassador I-Octane left the island for two shows in Guyana.
The first show, held on December 31 in Linden, at the Wisrock Bus Park, saw more than 4000 patrons coming out to see his performance.
At 11:30 p.m., the artiste stormed the stage with Buss a Blank, Nah Wash, Badmind Dem A Pree, My Story, and others hits. The high energy was maintained throughout his set, but when he performed crowd favourites like My Life and L.O.V.E. Y.O.U., his performance soared to another level.
Fellow artiste, Versatile, entered the stage halfway through Octane's set and performed two songs before leaving Octane to lament, Gal a Gimmi Bun, Puff It and I A Cry before closing the show and his high-energy 50-minute set withJah Jah.
Not long after wrapping up that show was Octane back onstage at a second event on New Year's Day in George Town at the national stadium car park. Here, he performed to a crowd of more than 30,000 strong.
I-Octane proved the perfect balm for the rainy conditions. Buss a Blank sent the crowd into a frenzy, and was a sign of things to come as the deejay delivered a set worthy of his name.
Again, Octane gave fans a double treat when he introduced Versatile to the stage for their collaboration, Anything We A Eat. The latter also performed his song Nah Go Be Ungrateful.
Octane later closed his hour-long set with Jah Jah.
Ruff Kutt was the backing band for both shows, and both events were sponsored by Banks Beer Guyana.
