Mia: Bring back the ’Pot
Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley has indicated the Crop Over Festival needs to be re-examined for ways in which it can be improved.
Sharing her thoughts on the festival when she made a stop at the Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc.’s Black Rock stall yesterday, the Prime Minister said thought should be given to reintroducing Cohobblopot, which was discontinued in 2015.
“I think we need to examine the festival, where we are. There are things that will always continue to be the same,” Mottley said. But she noted Cohobblopot for her was “not just a show” but “always an attitude to Barbados’ development, building the best out of us by putting all of us together and coming up with something that is unique to the Bajan.”
This is why she thought it should be back on the calendar, while consideration should be given to adding new events, considering the interests of the generations of Barbadians who will be exposed to the festival in the future. (GC)
