Imagine oxtail puffs, Fay Ann selfie dive, Kees and Neil "Iwer" George's Stage Gone Bad, Carnival costume display featuring Tan Tan, Saga Boy and Fatima old boy Robert Solomon in his flaming red Lost Tribe costume of 2019. Those were just some of the highlights of the Fatima Old Boys Association’s (FOBA) annual all-inclusive fete on February 15.

When D'All Starz took the stage, patrons were already filling the courtyard of the college.

Blaxx, looking nifty in his black and white jacket, entertained the crowd with a number of his past and present hits including Camboulay, Rankin Ting, Wadap, Hulk and Leggo. Also performing with the band was Teddyson John.


D'All Starz made way for Dil-E-Nadan that really got the crowd on its feet. Frontline singers Raymond Ramnarine, Derrick Seales, and Renuka Mahabir had the crowd captivated. The band then brought on surprise guest artiste David Rudder for a few numbers which the crowd sang along to, before ending with a flurry of the season's hot soca songs.


Sekon Sta and the Soca Squad cooled down the tempo but not for long. The performances with Kes the Band featuring Kees Dieffenthaller and Vikings with Ian "Bunji" Alvarez and Faye Ann Lyons-Alvarez churned out hit after hit and had patrons jumping in delight.
