The patrons at Lakasa in Guadeloupe, last Saturday, welcomed Wayne Wonder for his first performance inthe territory. The capacity crowd rocked to a set that included classics such as Saddest Day andLet Your Conscience Set You Free, international hits such as Bounce Along and No Letting Go and current hits like All About You – for which a video for the track is expected before the end of the month.
DJ Baby Face aka Lion King of King Addies backed up Wayne on the 1's and 2's for a literally blistering performance in the packed club. Near the end of his 45 minute set, Wayne dropped his jacket and the performance ricocheted to another level of intensity much to the delight of the ladies in the first rows. Undaunted by the language barrier, the crowd sang with Wayne as he moved with experienced professionalism from one song to the next.
The event marked the last in the Lakasa Summer Series which also saw performances from songstress Alaine and dancehall bad gyal Ce’Cile.
