Foam Party a hit in Mandeville
A foamy affair

The summer heat is on and event promoter and entrepreneur Oniel “OB Khalibah” Graham provided a remedy to cool down the searing temperatures.

He had the first staging of what is intended to become an annual affair called ‘Foam Party’. It was held last Friday at Dynamix Lounge in Somerset district, Mandeville.

“The idea for the Foam Party wasn’t really mine to begin with, my cousin Alex Williams was the one who came up with the idea. We were trying to build clientele by promoting our business on the night of the event. And, as it turned out, the support was overwhelming. We had a full house on the night and persons who couldn’t get inside were seen partying at the entrance,” Graham disclosed.

According to Graham, the turnout of the females was the high point for him.

“The ratio was pretty good; it was 2:1 on the night. The women partied throughout the whole night and they sang along to almost every song that was played. The level of interaction was different there than other events that we’ve done.”

Soaking up the fun

Among the selectors who were commissioned to provide the musical euphoria were in-demand Mandeville-based DJ Brain, Ricky Fresh, and Team Khalibah.

“All the DJs did exceptionally well and had the patrons grooving and dancing all night. It was incident free and the patrons are anticipating the next event that we will be hosting,” said Graham.

The next staging of Foam Party is scheduled for November. However, another event promoted by Graham called ‘Likkle More’ is set to take place on July 30 at the same venue.
