Close contest, says RPB
Veterans will have to pull out all the stops this year if they want to win the MQI Banks/Lime Pic-O-De-Crop tomorrow night.
That’s the word of nine time king Stedson “Red Plastic Bag” Wiltshire who believes there could be an upset in the apple cart from a particular dark horse, for which he has not named.
The nine finalists up against Gabby are Chrystal, Kid Site, Adonijah, Adrian Clarke, TC, Blood, Khiomal, De Announcer and newcomer Popsicle.Bag who said the call was too close to make this year, refused to pick his top three for the DAILY NATION for this Friday night’s finals at Kensington Oval, but with gleaming eyes stated that he had seen some strong songs and presentations so far in the competition.
The new Sweet Soca King, however said he eagerly anticipating this Friday’s show scheduled to start at seven p.m. at the Kensington Oval.“It is a very close call but I believe that the experience of the veterans will have to come to the fore and they will have to pull out the stumps because they are those who are not as seasoned who have a very good chance of upsetting the apple cart,” he stated.
Party Monarch King Mikey agreed with Bag that this year’s competition was a very close one.
He too refused to pick a top three, stating only that the competition would be a “very keen one with the newcomer facing the veterans” which was “very interesting”.
The two were at the time the toast of a Digicel event held specially for them and second placed Party Monarch winner Lil Rick who was unable to attend, who have all been ambassadors for the cellphone conglomerate for a few years.
Red Plastic Bag noted that being associated with Digicel was a great feeling especially since like the company, they had represented excellently.“Digicel aims for excellence and in so doing we too aim for excellence, and we will continue to uphold those standards and we are very happy to be their ambassadors,” he stated.
The two were presented with I-pads from Digicel’s Commercial Director Alex Tasker, before basking in the celebrations and cutting a huge cakes with Digicel representatives which bore congratulations and their winning photos.
