THE ISLAND’S BIGGEST kaiso battle comes off Saturday night at Kensington Oval when the MQI/Mount Gay Pic-O-De-Crop Finals will be staged before thousands.
The eagerly-anticipated competition will see four women and six men squaring off for the coveted calypso monarch title starting 8 p.m.
The ten contestants: TC, Chrystal Cummins-Beckles, Aziza, Donella, Classic, MRBLOOD, AC, Adonijah, Colin Spencer and Ian Webster will vie for the winner’s prize of a customised vehicle worth $81 000 with insurance and $10 500 in cash, among other things.
All this week, the competitors were busy readying themselves for the big night.
The DAILY NATION caught up with Donella and Aziza rehearsing with the Festival Band at Combermere School.
