“Never hesitated to put me and others on stage to shine and his persona with duo musical partner Char Su, single-handedly changed the way soca sounded, the way it was done, the way things could be done, the bigger risks, the no-holds-barred and held the mark for a very, very, very long time.

“Thank you for your guidance, for treating many of us like blood family and for always encouraging from behind the scenes when you couldn’t be there.”
