“We have had stars over the years as you know, this is a major feature of the pageant itself to (that is) to have a superstar come in and be the guest artiste such as Machel Montana, Claudette Peters and Allison Hinds. I believe that both Mr Bagnall and Nicha B our local superstars are currently on the same level as anyone of the big regional artistes out there and we’re proud that we are at a stage where we could choose not one but two of our own and bring the same level of entertainment that we would expect from the so called big regional artistes. The Genesis Band will be providing the music and they too also feature another local superstar DeJour. So the show promises to be one of the most exciting and entertaining shows we’ve ever staged,” remarked longtime Committee member and Pageant Marketing Sub Committee Chairperson Wallis Wilkin .
The show is slated to take place on Tuesday 29th December, 2015 at the Sugar Mas Sugar Mill on Port Zante, St.Kitts
