Royal treatment for Queen Aziza
IN FINE BARBADIAN style, officials of the Cave Shepherd All Stars calypso tent yesterday held a coronation fit for Queen Aziza, the 2016 calypso queen.
She was resplendent in national colours, as she rode on the back of a van for her victory parade, which began at the Barbados Investment and Development Corporation, Princess Alice Highway, through The City and on to St Philip.
Queen Aziza said she “was honoured to be celebrated in this fashion and to be crowned as the first queen after 28 years on such a historic occasion as the 50th anniversary of the nation’s Independence.” (RA)
