Not one kaiso
REIGNING CALYPSO KING Classic will not be getting in bed with anyone who is suggesting that calypsonians sing one song in the Pic-O-De-Crop finals.
He also rubbished the decision as one that will lower the bar of the calypso artform and chided calypsonians who endorse the move.
The idea to do one song was mooted during a stakeholders meeting at the end of this year’s Pic-O-De Crop finals and got currency on the Caribbean Broadcasting Corporation’s Crop Over consultation programme Sunday night.
“I heard about it after the finals this year. The reason I heard given for it was that they are trying to give more people an opportunity to get into the finals. To me that does not make sense; that is lowering the bar,” said the veteran calypsonian who won his first calypso monarch title this year.
