accommodating a woman in his

up in the madhouse in St Ann s.
Kalaloo was also the winner of last
year s semi-final as well.
The night s biggest disappoint-
ment was Brown Boy (Knolly Brown)
from Kaiso House who forgot the
lines of his second verse.
Singing the funny Homosexual
Rights, although he eventually ren-
dered his four stanzas, the judges
penalty cost Brown Boy a place
among the eight finalists to meet
defending champion The Incredible
Myron B in the final, scheduled for
April 5, at the Queen s Park Savan-
Brown Boy is now contemplating
whether he should resign from com-
petition as it is not the first time he
has had a memory lapse in a com-
Hailing from Cro Cro s Icons tent,
Fritzy (Fritz Taylor) also impressed
the judges with his Wha Dey Take
me For, securing the second highest
Kaiso House s Lady Aeisha (Eliz-
abeth George) also succeeded in gen-
erating much mirth among patrons
when she sang Size 12 and Up, a
ditty that supports the belief that
the length of man s foot reveals other
measurements of his anatomy.
Ninja (Kenson Neptune), a veteran
of Kalypso Revue, sang What to
Write, a ditty that chronicles his 18
years of making it to the Young Kings
finals yet never winning the title.
Ninja itemized all the much younger
singers who have won the title. Ninja
is well popular on the parang soca
circuit, his best known song being
Parang the Wrong House.
In terms of presentation, Anton
Roberts of The Masters tent, the-
atrically performed Diana, including
having someone distribute power
mints to patrons as he extolled on
the benefits of sucking Diana (mints).
Recipes of the Past was the title
of the song that placed Magnificent
Glow s Caston Cupid into the finals.
He too presented his song with the
use of props which demonstrated
traditional, indigenous potions to
trap a man.
The only prop Dr Rhythm (Shawn
Mc Intyre) needed for his presen-
tation was a cute baby boy in arms.
A crowd-pleaser through Carnival
at Klassic Ruso tent, Rhythm gave
intangible proof of his paternity via
the provocative My Son.
The eighth qualifier for the final
was Juiceman (Dick Lochan) of Cen-
tral Rainbow Stars, singing Frighten
to Get Old.
A few of the unplaced semi-final-
ists drew some response from the
audience, some not necessarily for
the criterion being judged. Among
these were Tempo whose Holiday
saw his doing much high kicks and
shrieks; Pieman, as blue devil,
singing The Judges Fork; Slicky
whose chorus for Coughman was
actually of him coughing; Wizard of
ID who sang Ah Not Lending with
a live cock under his arm; and, Mr
Mack for his facial expressions in
Half Dead PP.
Defending monarch Myron B was
seen in the audience on semi-final
night and he said is excited to face
the challenge of the eight qualifiers.
