    Overall great show , gave the judges and 85% mark . Still confuse that Daddy Chess did not place , while I was rooting for picky this season he really did not bring his A game last night . Congrats to all those who made it to the finals , Hunter an Black Diamond , you guys are my favs so all the best at the finals ..

    Side note no one is perfect , and while I believe in second chances , If a Child Molester ever comes close to winning the calypso crown , that’s the day I will turn my back on Dominica calypso , cause offences like this is just unforgivable …… I ain’t calling names , neither am I stating a false accusation , Da Vibes if you guys do your homework you will know its a fact !!!
