COPS Nab Two!

The Star (St. Lucia) - - ENTERTAINMENT - By STAR RE­PORTER

Some in their ranks may have been catch­ing a bad rap lately but two po­lice­men this week showed that they are made of a more win­ning streak. First, on Tues­day evening po­lice of­fi­cer Gil­roy ‘Gillo’ Gas­ton be­came the first po­lice of­fi­cer to win the In­ter-com­mer­cial House Ca­lypso Com­pe­ti­tion. The event took place in the Na­tional Cul­tural Cen­tre Grounds. (See more in 2NITE mag­a­zine).

Then on Thurs­day The WAVE 94.5 an­nounced the win­ner of its an­nual Peo­ple’s Choice Soca Per­former: Ker­wyn Bow­ers, bet­ter known as Pri­vate 6, who is also a po­lice of­fi­cer. Pri­vate 6 won him­self a tro­phy, EC$4,000 and a Sam­sung Gal­axy, com­pli­ments of Dig­i­cel. His re­lease and win­ning song is ‘On Fleek.’

Speak­ing at a brief cer­e­mony held at The Wave on Thurs­day, the singer said he felt “very ec­static.” “Pri­vate 6 has been an artiste for al­most a decade and right now I would like to thank The Wave, Dig­i­cel, First Cit­i­zens and all other spon­sors for giv­ing me the op­por­tu­nity to rep­re­sent the peo­ple and to be the peo­ple’s monarch,” he said. A fi­nal­ist in the na­tional Soca monarch com­pe­ti­tion pre­vi­ously, he shared this with his fel­low artistes: “Never give up on your dreams; there are al­ways pos­si­bil­i­ties; put God first and al­ways have faith, and work at your craft; you never know when your time will come.”
