To get $4 for playing all season when i had to hide below my pan to prevent me from getting a buss head when steelbands used to clash when my bass pan used to stick in mud because it had not... road in the savannah and the culture voltures that dont even beat a drum and leaves with a bag of money after canival people giving a stellband event and hirering soca artiest to perform and leaving out calypsonians that compose pan songs for the steel bands to use for panorama you ever heard a pan song in the soca monarch?not even one pansong calypsonian in a steelband event like Winston Defosto Scarborough you ever heard Jamaica giving a world reggae championship they know that Jamaica is the home of reggae Trinidad is the home of the steel band we shouldn't have to give a world steel band championship to show the world that we are the home of the steelband how will it look if a steelband from japan wins?i

EVERYBODY BIG UP KEITH DIAZ when he first took office!!! Nobody check out the man history in the STEELBAND MOVEMENT. Now we 34 MILLION DOLLARS in debt and NOBODY could remove this CANCER from destroying the STEELBAND MOVEMENT in Trinidad.
AQUIL, GREGORY, DOLLY, ROWLEY -- not a MAN (or woman) could TOUCH KEITH DIAZ!!!
Hold your breath until 2020!!! Then we could exhale and talk about NEW LEADERSHIP.
Until then: LIVE WITH KEITH DIAZ!!!
