A BARBADIAN entertainer is throwing his hat into the political ring.

Calypsonian John King was announced as one of the three Barbados Labour Party (BLP) nominees for St Philip West during a branch meeting on Sunday night at Princess Margaret Secondary School.

The 1994 calypso monarch described his decision to enter the political arena as a “natural gravitation”. King said that over the years, people would have been listening to his music and would have noticed a particular pattern with his social commentary and his concern over the direction that Barbados had taken.

“I have always been one of those people who believe that in order for the region itself to go far, Barbados has to lead and it has to be a strong, strong country,” he said.
