Host of Q95’s Kingdom Connection Program Pastor Randy Rodney contends that the World Creole Music Festival (WCMF) gradually lost its essence that was established at its inception.
Host of the Kingdom Connection Program, Pastor Randy Rodney, voiced his apprehension regarding the World Creole Music Festival (WCMF) during its inception. He expressed his worry that this event would overshadow the commemoration of independence, a concern that has become increasingly evident in recent times. He noted that discussions now revolve more around the festival itself rather than the acknowledgement of the nation's independence.
According to Pastor Rodney, the festival that is now being staged is more akin to a music festival than a Creole Music Festival. He also contends that if the event remained native to the Creole Culture, there would still be a possibility of combining it with independence.
