NO MATTER HOW hard Richard Stoute tried, he could not hold back the tears on Sunday night.
Indeed, they flowed freely as loads of people ventured to Divi Southwinds Resort in St Lawrence, Christ Church, some coming from overseas, to pay homage to the man known as the “godfather of entertainment in Barbados”.

Many stalwarts of entertainment as well as politicians and business people were among those showing respect to the man who for 40 years has paved the way for many top Barbadian entertainers.
