Well known Spanish Town entertainer, Vonglobe, is promoting his latest song, Crocs and Clarkes. This, a summer song, is generating a lot of traction, not only in Spanish Town, but surrounding communities.
According to Vonglobe, born Devon Williams, “I recorded this song because Clarkes is still the favoured shoe wear for men and Crocs another shoe wear is just about everywhere one goes these days. I just couldn’t think of a better topic for summer.
“People just feel comfortable in Crocs. Then, whenever one thinks of summer this includes all the fun one can have on the beach, at party and even window shopping.
“This year, I sat and some clever idea came to my mind which is to do something different. I actually began with the chorus of the song, which includes:
“Gal a wear crocs, bad man wear Clarkes
Socks and slippers pon di sand fi di summer
Man a drink Johnny Walker and tun over
Pour it inna mi cup until it flow right over…”
The song has three verse with the lyrics surrounding summer, like clubs and parties; the excitement of preparing and travelling for events.
Vonglobe has been performing the song at several outdoor events, including Spice Thursday at Hellshire Beach, Portmore.
