    Listen nobody knows how I feel right now, I am so estactic,they can’t be nobody as happy as me right now, this gave me chills this morning when I pick up my phone and see the king. When I tell you he deserves that long ago, He keeps knocking at the door and they finally let him in. PERSEVERANCE CLASSIC Always had good songs from day one way back when, I am laughing all the way 3 big cheers for the king

    For many years he was over looked , given a hard time and treated badly. Finally the judges open their eyes and placed the “X” in the correct box. All the best CLASSIC.

    Classic and Colin Spencer are the 2 best in the business at this time . Always treated badly just like two of the best cricket persons in BDS. STOUTE and CARTER.
