Kevin Small and his band Fifth Element Mas has done it again!
Following today’s Junior Kadooment in association with Consolidated Finance, Fifth Element Mas under the theme Virtual Reality, was announced as Best Junior band for 2018 in a release from the National Cultural Foundation around 8:40 p.m.
This makes it the band’s fourth title since inception. They previously won in 2014, 2016 as well as last year.
Speaking to THE NATION who broke the news to him, Small said it was a very overwhelming feeling.
“It’s even greater than the win. For us we have been dealing with a lot of reviews from parents telling us about the experience and how it was for their children. We tried hard to satisfy all their needs because first and foremost our masqueraders’ happiness is of upmost importance,” he said.
