After nine years pf participation, KerryAnn “Hot N Spicy” Deane is the new calypso queen of the Barbados Port Authority Inc. (BPI). She dethroned last year’s champion Jackson Unplugged, impressing the large audience gathered at Shed 3 for the showdown.
Patrons of the event, which was billed as Soca by the Water, saw nine of the port’s employees battling for the title. The competition, now in its tenth year was conceptualised to foster camaraderie among the staff.
Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of BPI, David Jean Marie in his welcome remarks noted, “We try to build the morale here at the port to have the best organisation we are intended to be.” He indicated that their vision is to be recognised as the most innovative, green maritime hub in the world by 2030.
