    Well done and all the best in your future endeavors. This success no doubt was a result of your hard work and the use of you God given talent. Just watch out now for the politicians who gonna come out the wood work and take the spotlight and talk a bunch of foolishness. It’s time the government throw more financial support behind our artists and stop all the long talk. Take note Min. Lashley

    Congratulations! You make Barbados proud of your accomplishments. Meanwhile let me offer you my sympathy on the occasion of the death of your grand-father, Ulric Parris, who taught me in Elementary School at St.Bartholomew’s Boys, Christ Church. May he rest in peace and rise in Glory.
