Wenti Wadada is often described as a music industry veteran, who went to London from his homeland of Jamaica, then to the USA and Canada, and was a warm-hearted host of Exit’s Reggae stage during the last couple of years of his life, spending a lot of his time in Novi Sad. He left a deep mark at the international reggae stage with his hard work and devotion. Everything he did, he did with impossible ease and a smile, lighting the way for younger generations. He claimed that this stage promotes good vibes, good mood, love and respect, which is why it now proudly bears his name.
