May 19, 2014 News

The chance to showcase to Brazilian music industry experts at the social evening held as part of the Government Political/Commercial mission to São Paulo last September, has really paid off for entertainer Stedson ‘Red Plastic Bag’ Wiltshire and musician David ‘Zig-E’ Walcott.

Move tent moves

April 17, 2014 News

After the announcement a few weeks ago that Mikey had moved from the Headliners tent, an article in todays Nation Newspaper states that former All Stars tentmates Ian Webster, Adrian Clarke, Chrystal Cummins-Beckles, Colin Spencer, Mandisa and Smokey Burke have joined the Adrian “Boo” Husbands managed tent.

Mr. Husbands is quoted as saying that in the last 8 years, Headliners had changed from a tent known for social commentary to more of a party monarch and sweet soca tent and these changes which were announced yesterday at Hilton Barbados are an attempt to reposition the tent for the new dynamics of Cropover.

Ian Webster wins the 2013 Pic-o-de-Crop competition

August 3, 2013 News

Ian Webster has emerged as the winner of the 2013 Pic-o-de-Crop competition.  In a year that many considered wide open due to the non-participation of last years winner, Red Plastic Bag and another perennial finalist, The Mighty Gabby, after the first half, most of the competitors seemed to be on even keel.

The second half however, seemed to be the decider as some competitors fell in either performances or delivery, while others raised their game.

Ian walked away with a Ford Focus Titanium provided by one of the title sponsors, MQI along with a host of other prizes.

Second placed was Ian’s tentmate Chrystal Cummins-Beckles. Third place went to Blood.

The full results are:

  1. Ian Webster (All Stars)
  2. Chrystal Cummins-Beckles (All Stars)
  3. Blood (Headliners)
  4. Colin Spencer (All Stars)
  5. Aziza (Hous...
