UNREALISTIC.

That was how chief executive officer of the National Cultural Foundation (NCF), Cranston Browne, characterised nine-time Pic O De Crop king Anthony Gabby Carter’s suggestion that the prize money of that competition be increased to at least quarter-million dollars.

Speaking to the media after the launch of First Citizens Pan Fusion yesterday evening at First Citizens’ offices at One Welches, St Thomas, Browne praised Gabby as a Barbadian icon, but said such an increase of the pot for the calypso competition was not justifiable. (SDB Media)
