If someone had told the students of Waterford High they would get the chance to see international superstar, and former Fugee, Wyclef Jean perform live, they would have thought it was a hoax.

However, telecommunications giant, LIME, made it possible and gave the students a surprise many may found difficult to top. Wyclef, who made a bombshell appearance on Friday afternoon on the grounds of Waterford High as part of LIME's School Tour in the St. Catherine region, gave not only a brief, yet stellar performance, he also encouraged the students to only reach for the best.

"If you come from the ghetto, don't let them tell you, you're nothing. People from ghetto are the only ones who can take a rock and turn it into a diamond," said Wyclef, former Haitian presidential hopeful, shortly after performing his hit, Sweetest Girl (Dollar Bill).

Fellow international heavy-hitter, Shaggy, who had called Wyclef to the stage, also made his entrance to thunderous roars from the students. Reeling off a catalogue of hits including, Angel, Strength of A Woman and the recent For Your Eyes Only featuring Alaine, the notorious 'Mr. Boombastic' was an instant hit with the students.

Prior to Wyclef and Shaggy hitting the stage other celebrated performances included: newcomer, Versatile, Timberlee, Alaine and QQ. Other established artistes including Voicemail and TOK, also made their entrance to piercing screams from the students.

Eight students were awarded new LIME Blackberry Gemini phones for being top achievers in their respective fields and the school was given three new computers and free internet access for a year.
