This one-of-a-kind extravaganza will take place on Saturday, December 2, 2023, from 20 p.m. to 1 a.m., at the prestigious Aleeze Convention Center.
The evening promises to be filled with uproarious laughter and lively music, featuring an exceptional lineup of artists. The stage will be taken by storm by the incomparable talents of CRAZY, the indisputable Mighty Dow and the comic genius of Errol Fabien from Trinidad.
Edwin Ayoung, aka “Crazy”, born in 1944 in Trinidad, swapped cricket for music, earning his nickname “Crazy” for his flamboyant stage presence.
He made his Carnival debut in 1975, and with hits like "Dustbin Cover," he became a musical sensation signed to Eddy Grant and Ice Records. He launched 'Parang Soca' in 1978, released a hit album in 1979 and ventured into chutney soca with 'Nani Wine' in 1989, gaining worldwide fame. Despite ups and downs in his career, his album “Still Crazy After 25 Years” in 1997 revived his success. Known for mixing humor and politics, Crazy is an advocate for inclusivity, with hits promoting LGBT rights and addressing crime issues.
