(ZIZ News) – “Allow me to give special congratulations to King Astro, Miss Neila Jones and King Invincible Terron Webb for all making history and trodding along a path rarely travelled,” were the words of Nevis’ Premier, the Hon. Vance Amory, speaking during his New Year’s address to residents on that island.
Amory said the two males and one female should be proud of their accomplishments as he and the rest of Nevis are basking in the victories.
“King Astro, for successfully defending his National Senior Calypso crown and repeating as National Calypso King; Miss Neila Jones for being the first Nevisian to be crowned queen at the Miss Haynes Smith Caribbean Talented Teen Pageant and King Invincible for also being the first Nevisian to be crowned king in the St. Kitts-Nevis National Carnival Primary School Calypso Contest,” the Premier stated.
He also praised Sidama Jones, Nadaski Percival, and the Mighty Sookie who placed first runner-up in their respective shows; and Jahnel Nisbett, the Nevis Pan Ensemble and Shanika Joshua who placed second runner-up in their competitions.
