Is the Party Done? Compliments of “The Duvone” and “The Renegades”?

A Preemptive strike?

Armed with a song (Hookin’ Meh) that has captured the spirit and imagination of the country like few have in the recent past, one has to wonder: what was in those “extra large garbage bags” being waved by fans from the high-rise flats flanking the world-famous Renegades panyard, during their prelims presentation? Could it be that - The Duvone & The Renegades have already “bagged” the rest of the competition, for trying to take their love and throne away?

At any rate once All Stars announced Full Extreme as tune of choice that year I knew it was a wrap.

De Party Not Done, Crazy as it seems, today is Semis and it now start...  And Duvone already has the Semis win with T&T Defence Force cap in hand, so more to come!!!
