Good evening all, and welcome to our second annual Carnival Pookie Awards. If allyuh feel I late , know that I am not because they only give out the prizes for Soca Monarch this week self. As you should already know if you have been reading my blog for any length of time I am quite openly biased to certain things, e.g songs by Machel Montano. So although deep down in my heart I may want to be objective, I can't promise I will be .So if you have a problem with that too bad. I don't want to keep you in further suspense...
