Inches and Lil' Rick in Tobago

October 25th 2011 saw Ancil Thorne of BWV Entertainment hosting the BMobile Soca Spree launch party at Bar Code Night Club in Tobago. The lineup for this event included Lil’ Rick, Inches from Barbados and Shurwayne Winchester in his hometown of Tobago.

From the time the Bajan contingent arrived in Tobago, it was non-stop activity. They hit the ground running with a series of radio interviews and promotional appearances right up to performance time on Monday night.

It was also the first time that Tobago has been treated to live performances of the the popular tracks “Jones & Wuk Up, by Lil Rick and “Jiggle it” by Inches.

Based on the turnout for the event and the overall reaction of the crowd to the high energy performances by all artistes, the launch party was a huge success.
