With a bumper crowd on hand for LIME Skool Aid, this year's fifth staging on Sunday at JamWorld, Portmore, St Catherine, was topped off with an exciting entertainment package.

This was after a full day of back-to-school giveaways and services, courtesy of the organisers.

Downsound Records artiste Specialist, singer Etana, deejays Konshens and Darrio all performed to a large, appreciative audience.

Specialist's Street Hustle hit home and he also did his Galllis Anthem and touched on the topic of romance with Do For Love, a song he recorded with Ishawna. Cultural artiste Etana was well received as she delivered a number of crowd favourites, while encouraging everyone to be strong persons.

Koshens stormed onto the stage to loud cheers throughout the venue. Among the songs he did to good effect were Represent, Do Sumn, Bad Gal, Good Girl Gone Bad, Bubble, Walk and Wine, No Hesitation, Couple Up, Winner and So Mi Tan. He also teamed up with Darrio to deliver Gal Sidung, Darrio showing creativity as he did a school version of the song, which the crowd loved.

Darrio also hit the right note with the audience when he declared that school fee "no fi floss inna dance".

With LIME celebrating a half decade of Skool Aid, Konshens closed his set with Drink and Rave, fireworks exploding high in the air.

The annual LIME Skool Aid is geared at assisting thousands of students in preparing for the new academic year.
