Former player of Exile one band Fitzroy Williams was honoured on night two of the World Creole Music Festival.

Williams who also received the Creole Lifetime Award during the 2013 Lime Creole in the Park celebrations was presented with the Lifetime Achievement award.

He also entertained the crowd at the event, performing various cadence hits with calypso King, Dice, Carleen Phillip and 2013 winner of the Cadencelypso competition, Halibut.

King Dice’s performance was well received especially when he performed a tribute to former Cadence icon, Jeff Joseph

In the meantime, it was yet another great night for patrons of the 17th edition of the World Creole Music Festival. Apart from being spared from the heavy showers which have been beating the island for the past week, patrons to the show were treated to an evening of  scintillating music.

Jamaican dancehall/reggae artist Busy Signal, received positive reviews from patrons after performing hit after hit on the WCMF stage.

Busy Signal performed a wide range of music from his 2007 hit “Unknown Number” to his most recent “Bedroom Bully.”

Nigerian group, Bracket also lived up to their promise to entertain the crowd.

The group which is well known for their song “Yori Yori” engaged the crowd by inviting patrons to the stage to sing with them.

Elisha Benoit also took to the stage and thrilled the crowd with what many described as a unique performance.

The night was brought to a close with the performance of bouyon giants WCK.

The band’s latest song “767” sent the crowd into a frenzy. The band gave the crowd a taste of their old school and mixed it up with their latest songs bringing the show to a close at 6 in the morning.
