    Big up my boi Anton.. Congratulations. From the time I heard your song even before u performed it I told them fellas you must win. (Mahaut Massive). Well WCK I really dont know what is happening to the band right now but you guys made the effort. Am not hating because I love bouyon music. To be honest, my only problem is that I believe you guys need to stop playing all these old school tracks and start coming together as a band and start making new tracks. These old school tracks which I believe people tired hear them things. Start making some real new bouyon tracks. I personally dont like hearing Clint voice anymore.. He sounds old school. But Delly you are the man for the band. Don’t let people bring the band down. Prove them wrong.

    Big up and congrats to the first Serenade band but mostly I just want to send a special big up and congrats to the bands lead singer – Llody. Loldy, you are an inspiration to any young person intending to enter into the entertainment business. You put your heart and your soul in what you do. In any other country you would be a big time star. You are not respected in Dominica, but remember a king is never honored in his own kingdom. So keep doing what you are doing and put the Lord first and the rest will come in time. Congrats my boy!

    WCK was pure embarrassment. As the pioneer of bouyon music their performance left a lot to be desired. Their engineer needs to learn that loud is not sweet. His mix was a pain to the ear. Big up Serenade well deserve

      This is what Dominicans considers one of their best, well well we really in a sad state. Anyways WCK better than triple k, and triple k is considered Dominica´s top and best band. Well well this just shows that the poeple that think they know about music don´t know a flyind ar….. We must not mistake popularity with best, we must understand the percentage of our poeple that know nothing or very Little of music and hence you will understand why triple k is OUR NUMBER ONE BAND. Its a bloody shame.

    Mr. Ducreay this cadencelypso competition is another outstanding brain child of yours. I applaud you sir. Keep up the good work. If it wasn’t for you, Nccu would never be so prestigious. It would have never been the Nccu you have elevated Rccu to make it this unsurpassed institution. And for that we give you many thanks and all your flowers before you die

      I concur with you. Mr Ducreay is the best thing that ever happen to NCCU. But why they change de president na? Internal politics I guess.

    Congrats to u guys. I’m glad that u made it. When I listened to Halibut’s rendition , I said that song wasn’t going now here as the tune sounds like previous in the past, same tone, same lyrics and same melody. I said that he should come better than that,

  13. October 19, 2014

    Good job anthon and Ramadin . You all made us proud in GFCity. That’s the way to go. Keep it up.
