De Rock crushes opponents


Share post:

He was solid as a rock. 

Savir De Rock Browne is the king of calypso at Blackman and Gollop Primary School. Last Saturday night at the Christ Church school, he beat Relissa Re Re Mitchum, Kamal King K Roberts, and Faith Star Diamond Gunn into second, third, and fourth place, respectively, to win the trophy and the title.

Before an audience that included Minister of Creative Economy, Culture and Sports John King and patron Amor Lady Mottley, mother of Prime Minister Mia Mottley, students, parents, other relatives and friends of the school, De Rock delivered When I Grow Up with the confidence of a seasoned performer.

He made good use of the stage and delivered an impactful presentation, which included his mother – who asked him what he wanted to do when he was older – and others wearing the uniforms of professionals.

He gave a good rendition of the song, which was written by Arie Creative Services Inc. In it, he responded to his mother’s question about his career choices with a firm decision about what he did not want to be  – policeman, a teacher or a politician – because of the issues they tackled daily.

De Rock, a 2017 Scotiabank Junior Calypso Monarch finalist at the age of seven, is the brother of Emari Browne Star Browne, the reigning seven to 12 monarch. (GBM)
