He’s back

It was back in 1994 that he sang I’m Back, but 20 years later John King is also making a bit of a comeback.
After not appearing in De Big Show calypso tent, which he co-manages, for about two seasons, King returned for Sunday night’s opening show with Pure Magic, a pan kaiso fusion that gives a foretaste of the high quality of his offerings this year.
Having said earlier this year – and last year – that his singing career may soon be over in order to make time for his social work commitments, King has whetted his fans’ curiosity for Crop Over 2014; and he has not disappointed after De Big Show’s explosive opening.
The last time King competed for the calypso crown was six years ago in 2008 when his protégé AC was victorious. (RJ)
