Pandemonium: A first in Antigua-Barbuda’s Panorama - joint winners have been declared

Antigua Observer

St. John’s, Antigua & Barbuda, W.I. - For the first time since Antigua & Barbuda’s staging of the Panorama competition, joint winners have been declared.

LIME Hell’s Gate Steel Orchestra and Hadeed Group of Companies AMP Halycon Steel Orchestra will share the 2011 title, Minister responsible for Carnival, Eleston “Namba” Adams announced Monday.


But in quick response, Hell’s Gate spokesperson Stafford Joseph said the band will hold off accepting the revised decision.


“We won’t accept anything coming from the minister as bona fide,” Joseph said when contacted by OBSERVER Media.


“We’ll await Mr. Patrick ‘Stone’ Johnson, acting head of the association, to come forward and make a statement; then we’ll go from there.”
