Celebrity singing and dancing wraps Yap MicroGames

Alex Boyé puts on a memorable show

Colonia, Yap. It didn’t take long before the children joined Alex Boyé and began imitating his moves as he danced and slid, sang and teased the crowd at the Matson Yap Sports Complex to the beat of his African-infused songs. The flash of his gold high top sneakers encouraged even the shyest among them to join the joyful performance while their parents and families laughed, swayed and clapped from the bleachers.

The closing ceremony of the 2018 Micro Games had ended after two weeks of sports competitions. It was time to celebrate and celebrate they did.

But life was not always as jubilant and full of promise as it is now for this 48-year-old singing sensation who rose to fame with his music videos that have garnered nearly one billion views on YouTube.
