Kaiso Headquarters best show in town!

Deemed one of the best shows since its inception, coordinators of Kaiso Headquarters 2011 are basking in praises for the planning and execution of the event.  On Saturday July 9, fourteen competitors took to the stage to do battle with Jayhan “Sprata Pra” Narcisse for his crown.  Unfortunately for them, he wasn’t so ready to part with his title.

Performing “Voting,” the police band representative put on an explosive performance that rocked the crowd.  Speaking to the STAR after his win, the two time Kaiso King was modest about his win.  He said, “I enjoyed myself on stage this year but the first time I won, the feeling was better.  I felt pride at dethroning Spoiler.  It was more exciting the first time around.”

We probed Narcisse further about his win and he revealed, “It was not a surprise.  I was expecting it.  The crowd response gave it away.  I’m happy about the win but I still maintain that last year I had a greater feeling of accomplishment.”
Always ready for a challenge, Narcisse was focused on Tuesday as he prepared for the Inter-Commercial House Calypso Competition being held that night.  He told the STAR he’s out to bring the crown home to the Royal St Lucia Police Force.

The rankings for the event are as follows: winner Jayhan “Sprata Pra” Narcisse from the Police Band with Voting (written and arranged by Peter Simeon); Melissa “The Slayer” James from Police Control Room with Doh Reverse (written by Gilroy “Izi” Hall, arranged by Gordon Leon);  Tamara “Brown Sugar” Wilfred from the Press Unit with Time to Whine (written by Trevor Constantine, arranged by Gregory Piper); and Randy “King Green” Harris from the Crime Scene Unit in Vieux Fort with Na Quazay Sa (written by O’Neil, arranged by Martin James).

Event Coordinator Dyson Imbert was pleased with the turnout and support for the participants.  He said, “This year is our best thus far.  The response of the individual departments was overwhelming which we are happy about.  One of the main goals of Kaiso Headquarters is to get the whole force involved and also to involve our counterparts such as Bordelais and the Fire Service.  This is a friendly competition and as with everything else, there is still room for improvement.  The public can look forward to another fantastic show next year.”

The STAR put the question to Imbert, are there any plans to make Kaiso Headquarters a full blown competition tent?  Imbert answered, “The demands of the job do not allow us to branch off into a competing tent.  We are content to be the safest fete around and to allow the public to see a different side of the police.”
