Congratulations...De General, Mr. Edwin Yearwood continues to be a favourite in the hearts of Barbadians.
The Starcom Network of radio stations allows the general public to vote for the artist and song they believe to be the top tune of Crop Over.
The field was narrowed down to two great selections:
Mikey - I in Dat
Edwin Yearwood - Middle of de Road
The Crop Over frontline vocalist was able to amass 82 per cent of the vote. Mikey, weighed in with just 18 per cent. Edwin wins $25,000 as a result. He demonstrated class and great sportsmanship by offering $10,000 of his winnings to his opponent. Awwww, isn't that the sweetest thing?
Congrats goes to Edwin! His song happens to be one of my favourite uptempo soca tunes of 2009. If you don't know it, it'll grow on ya!
