Erica Mena and Cedric the Entertainer

America’s Paradise USVI Music Festival is known for its great music with deep roots in reggae, but there’s a lot more to it than just that music. Cedric brought the laughs but he was more than an entertainer and is truly an first class ambassador who’s relevance in the marketplace is still obvious. Erica Mena has been a wonderfully entertaining host.

Cedric was hosted by the tourism Bureau and in addition to putting on a great performance he’s been spotted playing golf and out enjoying his time on the island. Erica was a gracious host and a wonderful ambassador for the US entertainment industry showing how love and compassion can come together in a festival setting and bring down the house. She chatted it up with the audience and has been their access to the talented musical acts which includes Future, Barrington Levy, Destra, Don Omar, Third World, and the Virgin Islands’ own reggae musician Pressure Busspipe.

Erica shared her vision on her relationship with Bow Wow and the idea of what a reality show could look like with the both of them. She said, “I would consider it if it was like T.I.’s show, I love T.I.’s show.”

In our exclusive interview with Mena she also stated that “I would like to share with young girls to just know your value, it is very important to know your value. When people saw me on TV, I gave too much and didn’t plan out exactly what it was I was giving.”  When asked about her upcoming marriage and the considerations around it, she says “we both have two children, we must consider how we bring them together.” It’s important for us to know that Erica Mena is more than just a reality star. She’s in the midst of transformation as she grows as a star, mother and soon to be wife.

Being a part of true cultural events like this festival is an opportunity to bring our talents, economics and unique ideas to be shared with others across the African Diaspora while having a relaxing and fun experience that we should all come try. You don’t even need a passport. While there you can enjoy the fabulous beaches, beautiful vistas, and abundance of natural beauty everywhere you look.
