The 2014 Calypso King, was at a slight loss for words when his name was called just after 1 a.m. but he had this to say: “This is really special. This has been a rough year [I’ve] been through so much adversity on a personal level. There has been a lot going on and I’m just thankful to God — that’s the truth. All night I’ve been praying. . . . I’m happy for my Headliners family, we did one, two, three and [five]. Headliners to the world!”
Webster took the keys to the brand new Mazda 3, $10 500 in cash and several other prizes, after joining the elite group of Red Plastic Bag, Gabby and Kid Site in scoring back-to-back wins.
