The march, which concludes the season, will be held April 29 in the Corporate Area. Derek was part of the Jamaican carnival scene in the mid-1980s. He was invited by band leader Byron Lee to assist with the launch of his Jamaica Carnival. “It’s been a while since I have been to Jamaica carnival so I am anxious to see what improvement it has made and where it is now,” In addition to leading his D’Midas band, Derek designed costumes which will be displayed during the Road March. While his enthusiasm for designing is still high, he says his years of parading are over. “I have had my day in the sun so I am just passing it on to the younger generation,” he said. #JamaicaCarnival #LiveSTUSH #YuReady Leave a Reply Cancel ReplyYour email address will not be published.CommentName* Email* Website Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
