Red was the colour of choice for most patrons who came out to party at the latest instalment of the KGN 5 party series. The event also doubled as the birthday celebration for promoter Chavaughn Oneil.

Dubbed the Rojo edition, the event took place at 876 Terrace on Southdale Plaza in Kingston last Saturday.

“This is the second time that we are doing the party in February and we were a little worried about the red theme, but everything turned out great,” Oneil told Jamaica Observer.

Asked what was the key to KGN 5's pull, as thousands of patrons were in attendance, Oneil said: “It's not every party that uptown gets to party with downtown and feel, like one. The diversity of the event gives a different feel and it's a beautiful thing.”

The evening saw females dancing for the video light while most of the men drank and rocked to the hits.

“The highlight of the party was the musical selection from the DJs as well as the confetti,” said Oneil.

VJ Malik, undoubtedly one of the hottest new disc jocks to have emerged on the scene, continued to demonstrate why he won the SunCity High School DJ competition. From his selections to transitions, he kept patrons moving. DJ Hatta Klaps, Sir Toxic and Bishop Escobar were outstanding on an evening when patrons sought to quench their musical thirst.

Seen among the crowd were Shizzle Sherlock, producer Not Nice, Unruly Squid, and members of Popcaan's Unruly Crew.

The next staging of KGN 5 is scheduled to take place at the end of May at the same location.
