We dont wanna take away Trini titles :....poster Mail will be upset  ::LOL::

King Fighter was ranked among calypso’s legends, a title not often bestowed upon a non-Trinidadian,

especially at a time when Sparrow and Melody ruled the calypso world tightly.

He would dramatically snatch off his ever-present hat, showing his bald head, before bursting into Come Leh We Go (Sukie)

His People Will Talk also remains among the most requested vintage calypsos.

Born in Victoria Village, on the east coast of Guyana, Wilson got his name, King Fighter, because he was a boxer

known for his fancy footwork

Does Guyana have any genre of music that originated there? I don't think Guyana have a nickname that relates to music.
Maybe something with the Amazon forest or something else. Don't know what they call themselves.

hahahahaha: Rowe, we cannot sing , dance nor play musical instruments  ;)

Sean Patrick Thomas

born on December 17, 1970 to Guyanese parents Carlton and Cheryl Thomas....

He originally went to the University of Virginia to study to be a lawyer.

He ultimately got his Master's degree in drama from New York University at the Tisch School of the Arts in 1995.

Thomas is best known for his role in the movie Save the Last Dance and Barbershop

man I love this thread.  there is a spirit and a feeling about west indian life that all these people represent that is special for me that transcends my own life and all my troubles..that means the west indies to me....

its like big tall almost white Arthur W.... becoming a priest and going to Guyana to live when I was a lil bwoy and I wonder about him....

its like radio Antilles up in Montserrat that I used to get late at night in my bed..on the floor canvas dat is..on a Saturday night wen they all went out and left the radio on.  the music was great, made me dream of far places along with the name Antilles......

Names....Grantley Adams, Marryshaw, Gairy, Bradshaw, Small Island Pride, Learie Constantine, CLR James and Mintey Alley, Vere Bird, the town Charlotte Amalie, Charlie King and Uriah Butler, Marcus Garvey and Raymond Quevedo, Beginner and Kitchener, Cheddi Jagan and Forbes Burnham and trouble in BG..the fear around me the BG racial violence engendered.

a lot of people here think of Guyana as separate..including the captain :P :P but allyuh don't know what I remember even as a child of 3 and 4 years old..about the connection between BG and Trinidad just 15 minutes between them

I knew of Mittelholzer and Carew early..I heard a lot of those names early...they are apart of the west indies I knew, names to conjure with in my mind. these name and the small experience of them are all I had then..all.  they are the world.
