This Sunday, she as well as Mr. Hits, Lil’ Rick, will headline the National Cultural Foundation’s Digicel/CSS Cohobblopot show at Kensington Oval. Layne arrived home this afternoon and at a press conference in the VIP lounge at the Grantley Adams International Airport she told the media that when she hit the stage this weekend she would have fun and Barbadians could expect to enjoy themselves immensely.

Although the song writer said she was busy performing, promoting her new line of boots with Caterpillar, completing her third studio album among other things she was still aware of the objections some people had about her performing at Cohobblopot.

Many people have asked what would she perform.

Will she sing international rhythm and blues hits T Shirt and Impossible or will she render Colours from her early years as a soca artist performing at the NCF Cavalcades, Party Monarch and even in a calypso tent?

“I actually heard a comment saying we should keep it restricted to soca and reggae,” she said and asked what does being Bajan really mean?

“I personally believe it means being able to do anything,” the singer said. “It is funny because I am still young and not too long ago there were people who would be angry if reggae was even involved in any aspect of Crop-Over.

“I feel like you should put on a platform something that is inspiring and something that is successful.
