“Performing in Texas is a dream come true. I grew up on country music so to perform in a state that loves country music is special to me. Especially knowing that I am blending country music with reggae,” he said. 

His dates were at Heroes Lounge in Dallas and the Houston Reggae Fest. It maintains live show momentum for Wesrok who made his major festival debut in 2022 at Reggae Sumfest in Montego Bay. 

He describes ‘Perfectly Imperfect’ as “a mix of of Afrobeats with dancehall” and has been pitching the song through promotional stops in South Florida.
