First Lady aiming high

Social Share

Fresh off the heels of her high powered performance at the ‘Jamdown to Kingstown’ concert, which featured Jamaican super stars Fantan Mojah and Lady Saw, local dancehall artiste Vacita ‘First Lady’ Caine is rearing and ready for another round at the Victoria Park.{{more}}

This time, the local first lady of Dancehall will take the stage as the opening act for Leftside aka Dr. Evil and Assasin, at the 2008 edition of Can Fest.

The 23-year-old songstress says that she is looking forward to the show tonight, which is expected to be a sold out affair.

“I was overwhelmed and surprised by the response that I got the last time, and I know the crowd will be just as pleased with the new track I am going to drop.”

Fans of the lady can expect to hear for the first time ‘Me Nah Fraid’, a song produced by local producer Dougal ‘D Fresh’ Allen, better known as Megga Wattz in the industry.

Allen was responsible for Caine’s previous hits ‘Kitchen Dunce’ and ‘Own No Man’.

Another song is due out by the songstress early next year; this was produced by an internationally known arranger, who, along with the song, she is keeping under wraps for the time.

Caine burst on the scene in May 2006 with a song called ‘Take Your Time.’

“That song was a warning against having unprotected sex and HIV/AIDS in St. Vincent and the Grenadines at a time when it was spiraling out of control.”

But it was last year’s track Kitchen Dunce which was followed by ‘Own No Man’ that put her on the musical map.

Since then, the Park Hill resident has been in high demand locally.

Still yet to burst on the regional scene, First Lady has not given up on her ambition to make it internationally.

She considers artistes the likes of Beenie Man, Vybes Kartel, Bob Marley and Peter Tosh as her inspiration.

When asked about the fact that she herself is considered by some as a role model, Caine is flattered by the thought.

“Although I am self confident I am very shy. It’s good that people respect me for my high self esteem.”

“I would urge all aspiring artistes like myself to see obstacles as a stepping stone, and get around, above and beyond their limitations.”

Caine thanked all her fans who support her and used the opportunity to thank her family including her mother and father Sonia and Ezekiel, sisters Terrencia (reigning junior calypso champ Singing TC) Ackelia, brother Jehroy and her manager Sean Jack.
