Timmy: I did not give up

Sweet Soca Finalist, Timmy says each one of the finalist has an equal chance of winning that title.

The artist, whose popular Bumpa Catch A fire set ablaze the Calypso Bowl on the Ermy Bourne Highway back in 2003 and landed him in second place that year in both the Party Monarch and Tune of the Crop as well as the People’s Monarch competition, told Barbados TODAY, that he was “through to the finals so at least the judges thought I was good enough.”

Apart from that song and Worser Dan Dat, Timmy who’s real name is Fabian Greene, said that some of the songs he prepared in the last decade were just not “up to scratch” but this year his song – Carnival Story- which he wrote is as good as any offered this year. “Upon listening to the rhythm that Hypa Sounds produced [the song] came to me while talking to him via the phone … I did not take a break from competition, it might have appeared that way but I was still around. I would have to say that my material was not up to scratch. Most of the time I have ideas but I was not getting to pen my stuff in certain years and this would of been from 2003,” Timmy said.

He noted that his songs were not getting the airplay and it appeared to him that was the time of his “bad years”, but he did not give up.
