The 3rd edition of Showdown Mas Camp exceeds patron’s expectations
Val ‘Young Bull’ Cuffy, Unwanted, Wok Sok, Sye and King Dice were just a few of the calypsonians who were requested to perform their 2011 calypso renditions twice, by popular demand, at the third edition of Showdown Mas Camp on Friday January 28th, 2011 at the Harlem Plaza.
Wok Sok who is well-known for his song entitled ‘Sharon want a hotdog in her mouth’ set the pace when he performed way ahead of the aforementioned calypsonians.
Shortly thereafter, the 2010 Road March King Sye had patrons pointing their fingers in the air as a form of choreography to his song ‘One day’ before he jumped in the crowd to be one with his fans.
Later, the sights and scenes at Harlem Plaza resembled that of carnival Tuesday, when Unwanted hit the stage to perform what will most likely be a Road March contender ‘Gwo Pwel’.
Half way through his high powered performance, he was joined by a group of young ladies who couldn’t resist the temptation to dance to the rhythm of his song while at the same time displaying the designs of their 2011 carnival costumes.
As the end of the show drew near, Val ‘Young Bull’ Cuffy kept the crowd on its toes with a spectacular performance, when he switch his role from MC to calypsonian to perform one of their favorite ‘Bull Matador’
He was followed by four-times Calypso King Dice, who brought the curtains down on the third edition of Showdown Mas Camp with his usual high level, energetic performance full of flare and pomp.
Other notable performances were Peter Prosper’s Old Speaker, Lady B’s rats in society and Trend Setter’s ready-made Jacket.
