But the event which featured a dramatision of some of Sparrow’s calypsoes by various artistes had some unscheduled drama which saw him take a fall to the side of the stage and he had to be assisted to his feet, but he was not ill and he was unharmed and was able to continue his performance.              [Salt-fish music video at end] Continue reading

LORD KITCHENER – three music videos
