Bomani thrills Cave Hill students

Road March and Soca Monarch 2004, Bomani, wooed an audience of Vincentians and other students at the Cave Hill Campus of the Univeristy of the West Indies last Friday night as the St. Vincent and the Grenadnies Student Association, VINSA, held its penultimate activity in a week of celebrations.

The HS Phactor band member arrived in Barbados just minutes before his performance at Lecture Theatre One in the Teaching Complex on campus. {{more}}

He was greeted with loud applause and cheers as Master of Ceremonies and president of VINSA, Hans King, welcomed him into the arena. When it was time to hit the stage, Bomani, who was the featured artiste of the night, began with his “Booty Call”, then gave his Road and Soca Monarch hit “I Am Soca”, which had the audience on their feet partying to the end.

The event, dubbed a Cultural Evening/Concert, featured talents from several students on campus including designs from former Miss SVG, Kimon Baptiste.

The designs were worn by all Vincentian students including Tanya Fraser, Hall Queen and Miss Uweval 2003, who wore evening wear designed by Baptiste for the 2003 Hall Queen competition.

Poet Debra Providence, now doing her Masters, also entertained the audience with her poetry. Athalie Caine wooed the audience with her voice while Quenella Thomas, Keisha Ballantyne and La Teisha Sandy entertained them with skits. Jordanna Moussa was also in the mix with her monologue.

Friday’s event followed a Beer Lime on Thursday, which featured DJs Outla, Groove Master and Collin “Da Hitman” Graham. The week ended on Saturday with a Beach Lime at Batts Rock, St. Michael.
