VETERAN CALYPSONIAN Serenader has defended competitions, saying  they are the key  to keeping the art  form alive.
Serenader, who took the Pic-O-De-Crop  title in 1990, singing Jogging and Tug-O-War and in 1993 with Steel In Dey and Breakdown, will be going before the judges this year in the annual contest under the banner of De Big Show tent.
He traced the longevity of the art  from to the days when calypso enthusiasts  hung around after tent night and debated the chances of their favourite calypsonian going forward to the next stage of the competition.
“If you remove competition, you are  not going to get the [interest] among  the people. The competition is good  for the supporters; they like to know that  who they are backing will do well. (JS)
