Weeks earlier, Wasp delivered commendable performances at the Montego Bay Jerk Festival, several concerts across St. Elizabeth and the just concluded London Olympics Road Show which culminated at the Kingston Waterfront. The deejay is now preparing to release his ‘Above Average’ mixtape chronicled by DJ Dotcom and due for official premier at the end of August.
