July 24, 2012, St John’s Antigua – Former Calypso Judge Philbert Mason has disagreed with statements made by a semi-final judge that the points system used to select the final artiste is a backward move.
Judge Vanroy Burns told Monday night’s Snake Pit programme on Observer Media, that the system currently used by the Carnival Development Committee (CDC) is not beneficial to all artistes and is the main reason for casualties suffered this year.
But Mason said he does not see anything wrong with the methodology.
Meantime-three time Calypso Monarch Trevor “Zacari” King also supported Mason’s comments.
