MONTEGO BAY, St James — Rejuvenated dancehall artiste, Wayne Marshall delivered a pulsating set during the entertainment segment which followed the opening of the Jamaica Product Exchange (JAPEX), the annual tourism trade show at the Montego Bay Convention Centre in St James, recently.

Introduced on stage by emcee Brian Brown, Marshall immediately got the locals and visitors in the audience dancing and singing along as he reeled off a string of hits from his extensive catalogue, including Overcome, Marshall in Town, among others.

As anticipated, he brought the house down with his smash hit Lord I Pray, which he used to close a scintillating performance.

Speaking to the Observer West following his well-received act, the entertainer, who is enjoying the success of Lord I Pray, disclosed that he has other spiritual songs to be released soon.

“I will be doing more spiritual songs, more conscious songs, and I have them. It is just a matter of time now... we are going to be releasing them soon,” he revealed.

“I am a spiritual youth, walking on God's road for sure, and I feel like I have an intimate relationship with God and I am just following the guidance. So, wherever this spiritual road takes me I will go. For now, I know that God is using me to do a special work.”

But he was quick to point out that he will not abandon his pre Lord I Pray songs with which God blessed him.

“I feel like God blessed me with these great songs over the years to put food on my table and now I am here evolving into a better musician, into a better person, a better man, a wiser person; and I am going to be doing better songs, inspirational songs and healing songs. I am not ashamed of my older songs, I still represent them, I still do them with confidence and gusto.”

The following night saw veteran dancehall kingpin Beenie Man in his customary, indomitable style delivering a crowd-pleasing performance to close off JAPEX at Sandals Royal.
