Machel sings unity tune
DOES?TRINIDADIAN soca artiste Machel Montano believe he should be promoting Barbados’ premier cultural festival, Crop Over?
He obviously does; and while his presence here has both confirmed his view and also raised the anger of locals who believe it is insulting and disrespectful, the entertainer is all for Caribbean unity.
“Unity over separation everytime!” Montano declared yesterday during a media conference by the National Cultural Foundation (NCF)? at?Cave Shepherd.
It was to promote the July 31,?Digicel CSS Cohobblopot show at Kensington?Oval for which a poster with Montano’s image has been published.
On Thursday, prominent entertainer and promoter Alan Sheppard, the former lead singer of Spice And Company, said it was insulting and disrespectful for the NCF and the Barbados Tourism?Authority (BTA) to have Machel’s image on posters to “promote Barbados’ premier cultural festival Crop Over”. (CT)
