Tuco at Calypso Fiesta draw:

The Trinbago Unified Calypsonians’ Organisation (Tuco) says they will continue to work with the National Carnival Commission (NCC) to ensure the success of tomorrow’s semifinal round of the Calypso Fiesta

However, president Lutalo “Brother Resistance” Masimba confirmed the situation was “still as indicated earlier this week, that the NCC has the responsibility for the sale of tickets.”

He said while the ticketing arrangement was something which Tuco had initiated in collaboration with the National Lotteries Control Board (NLCB), “NCC has taken over that and they have also printed some hard tickets for sale. They are also responsible for the revenue collection at the gates at Calypso Fiesta.”

Stressing that they were following the directives of the Government, Masimba said Tuco was concentrating their energies on producing a “beautiful calypso experience” for both the competitors and patrons at Skinner Park, San Fernando.

Masimba confirmed he had met with NCC officials to determine the mechanics of delivering the event, while the issue of security was yet another aspect which had fallen to the NCC.

Masimba said anyone who wished to leave Tuco was free to do so, as it was a democratic organisation.
