As a result, he felt the need to make a special trip to Barbados, where he is well known as former West Indies cricketer.
On arriving on island he was well received by persons, who recognized him instantly, from his cricketing days. Young and old respectively showed their love and respect for this young man who had retired at a high in his sporting career four years ago.

This young and talented singer, musician, songwriter and producer toured all the media houses where he participated in lots of interviews accompanied by a performance of his songs and impressed all who heard, saw and read about him.
On this trip, there was always the Sports reporters and writers who sought interviews with him for their sports segment and even asked him to return the following week for a second interview, like in the case of Barry Wilkinson of ‘Length and Line’ which is the watched show on cricket in the island and is also shown on Sports Max.

Caribbean Media Corporation (CMC) amongst others were very happy to have him on the sports segment and also the entertainment segment. This media house operating as Carib Vision is seen in 26 countries.

There is no doubt that this talented and personable Anguillan star, was well received and his music appreciated throughout the length and breadth of Barbados.
