On 17th and 18th June, the second edition of One Love Festival took place in Baduel stadium in Cayenne, French Guiana.

The young artist Protoje performed the songs from his debut album 'Seven Year Itch.' He is a very talented songwriter and has matured into a talented performer. He was accompanied by his cousin and producer Don Corleon.

Queen Ifrica did an extraordinary performance and her positive energy won’t be forgotten by the Guianese massive.

Just off a tour in Brazil, Tarrus Riley was the headliner of the June 17th show. He gave a stellar performance in front of 1500 fans singing hit after hit including his recent Never I Leave. Conductor Dean Fraser performed amazing saxophone solos that thrilled the fans. Great showman that Tarrus is, both he and the Guianese crowd braved the rain and didn’t become disheartened. He told us that the next continent that he will be traveling is Africa, beginning with Gambia.

On June 18th, the show began with veteran Barrington Levy. Always consistent, Mr Levy lived up to his reputation and had the crowd singing along with him, knowing every word. The 4500 fans present on the second day of the event especially enjoyed his hit Be Strong and once again embraced every word.

Dancehall aficionados were pleased to witness one of the best ambassadors and showman… Shaggy. He sang his classic tunes and songs from his new album. Shaggy’s style and personality pleased the women and they loved his Jamaican dance steps.

A big thanks to the whole One Love Festival team and especially to soccer player Florent Malouda, the promoter of the event.
