Royal advice for Aziza
by TRE GREAVES
NEW CALYPSO MONARCH Aziza has received some positive feedback from two giants in entertainment.
Both Edwin Yearwood and Lil Rick, each of whom has five Party Monarch titles to his name, had nothing but love for the 21-year-old as they received their vehicles for winning competitions in the recently-concluded Crop Over Festival.
“It’s been a long time that we had a queen at the end of the day,” Lil Rick said. “So keep pushing on and look to beat up some people again next year. Don’t say that you win and that’s it,” he told her.
Edwin The General Yearwood also gave her some advice and cautioned her not to think of the festival as just a competition.
“It’s bigger than a car. It’s bigger than a competition. If you want to do this for a living, just be yourself.
“There is so much talent that if you don’t maintain and remain yourself you don’t really shine as you should. It doesn’t make sense trying to be an Alison Hinds, it doesn’t make sense trying to be a Rupee or a Lil Rick or an Edwin. There is a niche. There’s a place for you as long as you come and you do what you are supposed to do,” he said. (TSG)
