Multi-talented Abel Maxwell: Opening Act
The opening act of the Afro-Caribbean Musical Extravaganza is none other than Abel Maxwell, performing Zouk Kompas style music!
He has a respected reputation as an artist, songwriter and producer with an international musical background (Europe, Africa and North America). He is also an entrepreneur, label manager at B.O.D.B Entertainment and co-author of the best-seller book “Transform”.
Abel Maxwell’s music is motivated by his personal experiences, with a compelling message inviting us to fight for our dreams, face hardships with a winning attitude, and embrace the hard work to realize that our dreams for life are within our reach.
It is with this determination and conviction that “Victory” was released in July. “It’s a song about the dream of a small child who wants to make something big happen, but who eventually realizes that life is not that simple. Yes, it is not easy, but with courage and determination, this child succeeds. Victory is possible.” He explains to L’Express.
