WHEN AND WHERE WAS THE FIRST TIME YOU TOOK PART IN CARNIVAL?
“For me that was 2018 in Trinidad.”
WHICH BAND DID YOU PLAY WITH?
“I had a costume from Yuma but Machel and the crew was with Fantasy so we ended up there...all of us with different costumes.” :)
DESCRIBE WHAT YOU WORE IF YOU CAN REMEMBER.

WHAT WAS YOUR FAVOURITE SONG?
WHAT’S THE FIRST THING THAT COMES TO MIND WHEN YOU THINK OF THIS DAY?
