Crop Over 2004 - The Experience



The King Says Thanks - Monday 09, August-2004

A smiling Kid Site along with Bacchanal Time tentmates TC, the people’s queen, and Romeo, who placed second and fourth respectively in the just concluded Pic-O-De-Crop competitionA smiling Kid Site along with Bacchanal Time tentmates TC, the people’s queen, and Romeo, who placed second and fourth respectively in the just concluded Pic-O-De-Crop competition, showed just how much they appreciated their fans with a victory motorcade yesterday.
Moving off from outside the popular food and entertainment tent Tims On De Highway, the music truck belted out several popular Crop-Over tunes including Majja Shakey’s Rubber Waist, Edwin’s Sugar Cane and Timmy’s Worser Than Dat.

MC KB Kleen helped to add to the excitement charged atmosphere.

The first stop was through Bridgetown where King Site, on top a white Skoda pickup, proudly displayed his winning trophy and waved to the appreciative crowd.

Other stops along the way included Pine, Wildey, Black Rock and Eagle Hall.

People Make Their Statement - Friday 30, July-2004


People’s MonarchThe new People’s Monarch makes his statement to adoring fans.

AND THE PEOPLE’S MONARCH 2004 IS: Statement with, If I Can’t Be With You Tonight.
To the delight of dozens of screaming women, Statement was announced as the Starcom Network’s winner.

Beating Edwin Yearwood of krosfyah with Sugar Cane who received 45 per cent of the votes, Statement received 55 per cent to be this year’s champ.

A shocked Statement told the audience gathered in front of the River Road station plus thousands of on-air listeners that he was overwhelmed.

He thanked God, his parents, producer Darron Grant and the entire krosfyah family for their support.

Statement won a beige two-door Suzuki Grand Vitara and will be insured with one of the People’s Monarch’s sponsors, Equity Insurance.

Experience A Family Affair Tent - Sunday 13, June-2004
by Janelle Walters
What’s a calypso tent without lewd lyrics, wukking up and raucous jokes?

According to motivational speaker, Errol Griffith, it’s an Experience, which also happens to be the name of the island’s newest tent of which he is one of the organisers.

The Experience tent, located in Ring Bang City, St Lawrence, Christ Church, was birthed from Griffith’s and his colleagues’ desire to contribute something “wholesome” to the Barbadian society.

Griffith said it came to him last August that a “wholesome” tent was needed in Barbados. He soon got into contact with other like-minded people and things took off.

“We want to use the calypso and the Crop-Over medium to offer something uplifting to the Barbadian public,” he said, adding: “We guarantee that there will be no wukking up; nothing that is lewd and crude. It will be a family affair.”

The tent, whose members are now into some three weeks of practice in preparation for their opening later this month, will feature ten performers whom artistic director Mike Sealy said he prefers to call “messengers”

Noting that their aim was to promote “moral and righteous habits”, Sealy said: “I think we have a strong voice.”

Included in the line-up are popular DJ Ronnie Clarke, veteran gospel artiste James Leacock and NIFCA award-winning performers Rommel Hall and Simon Alleyne.

Sealy said his goal was to produce the best possible product in order to make an indelible impact on the audience. He also said he hoped to see the tent continue beyond the Crop-Over season.

Despite the obvious representation of Christian artistes and organisers, Griffith said: “We are not labelling it as a Christian tent, it’s a wholesome, family based tent.”

He said over the years many people have spoken about the growing lewdness in the lyrics.

“We feel God led us to do this,” he stressed. “It’s the first time for something like this and we are doing this trying to add some salt and light. We want to exemplify what is right . . . .”
