Music, party vibes and a beautiful costumed queen were among the highlights of the Wi Fete Lyme, which set the tone of what is to come on April 15.

The lyme, hosted at the Hyundai Showroom in the Corporate Area on March 16, was just the prelude to Wi Fete with the event’s headliner, Machel Montano dishing out just some of the party vibes to come.

Montano said the event will set a new record in Jamaica for the authentic carnival experience.

During pre-COVID, the Famalay singer had planned to “mash up” Jamaica Carnival and bring it back to its greatness, but plans changed.

Numerous guests came out to meet and greet Montano and to enjoy the food, fun and Red Stripe Flavour beers in abundance as the latest soca hits were in rotation all night.

The soca king said he was now back with even more energy than before and planning to give a performance like never before, giving the audience a little taste of what’s to come, as he launched right into Like a Boss, One More Time and Famalay.

In true soca style, the crowd effortlessly joined in as they knew every word of each song.
