I must "big up" Bomani for winning the OECS Soca Monarch 2005 in St Lucia on the weekend.Dorna,were you there? Last year Bomani hit it big with his wonderfully written and performed tribute to soca music entitled "Who Am I".I happen to think the song is close to perfection because it is so strong lyrically,vocally and the rhythm is to die for."Who am I" was a surprise hit last year as almost out of no where the song caught the nation's imagination and catapulted Bomani to winning both the Soca Monarch and Road March competitions of 2004.On the basis of his 2004 win he was eligible to take part in the 2005 OECS competition and am sure he did not disappoint the Lucian crew with the performance of his masterpiece.To listen Click here.Congrats my boy and hopefully some international label will sign you up a la Kevin Lyttle and the Nookie man Jamesy P.
On another note flash floods caused havoc in Kingstown after heavy rains caused some of the rivers leading into the city to overflow.Several business places had to hurriedly begin mop up operations while the lower wards of the main hospital had to be evacuated.Even though I knew there was considerable rain just after midday it was a shock seeing just how high the water levels were.But the good news is that nobody died and today it is back to bright skies.
But definitely "big up" to Bomani for coming to SLU and opening up a can of whoop arse. :D
Rainboots are rather fashionable:)
