Kings collect prize cars


Share post:

The 2010 Crop-Over Festival’s two top performers, Mighty Gabby and Anderson Blood Armstrong, picked up their prize cars yesterday at McEnearney Quality Incorporated (MQI).
Blood, the Soca Royale champion, told the DAILY NATION the two-door Kia sports model valued at $90 000 “is my favourite colour, red, and beautiful”.
He said he was “in love with the car already” and his fans “will definitely see me around” the place in it.
In contrast, Calypso Monarch Mighty Gabby said he had not made up his mind about what he would do with the silver-grey Ford Focus valued at $70 000.
He said the car, the fourth he had won in competitions, was “really nice”.
MQI, LIME, the Caribbean Broadcasting Corporation, 98.1 and Banks (Barbados) Breweries were the sponsors joining National Cultural Foundation officials at the hand-over ceremony.
Both Gabby and Blood said they now had a busy singing schedule, with Blood working with Sing Out Barbados to produce an album.
 Gabby reported that he was returning to the “hotel circuit” to perform after a 28-year absence.
He has landed a contract with the Almond Beach hotel group. (TY)
