A moving spoken word piece by O’Neill LeBlanc entitle ‘Can you hear me’ that discussed how
frustrated O’Neill gets when having to repeat himself multiple times due to the fact that he might not articulate or pronounce words in the ‘proper way’ and has to shout to get his voice heard. Followed by ‘tippins’ with another spoken word piece, who silence the auditorium with his monotone voice and constant pace. The 5 kings models wearing African wear got the lady’s particularly excited.
 
 
R&B section by F = ma covering songs including end of the road , Versace on the floor. one singer even walking into the crowd to serenade an unsuspected audience member.
Followed by a duet by the McCollin brothers singing a wide variety of songs like ‘Yo (Excuse Me Miss)’ to ‘Black Beetles’ and “Confessions’. Johnathan McCollin even singing his own song inspired by his girlfriend ‘Miles Apart’.
 
 
The half steps doing a tribute to Michael Jackson by dancing to three of his classics ‘Beat it’, ‘Thriller’ finishing with ‘Smooth Criminal’.

Filled with soca hits from a wide range of Caribbean islands performed by F=ma singing hits like ‘Good Morning’, ‘Calling in sick’, and ‘We Jammin Still’ which brought the already alive crowd to their feet, when a girl dressed as an African farmer began to dance which made the crowd uproar.
 
 
Stick fighting full of almost real actions as sticks broke and performers jumping out of the way of wooden sticks as they were swung hitting one another and breaking.The Congo stepperz did a presentation involving African dance that was very entertaining and comedic.
