I deserve to be in the finals and they need to make the judging public. I hear the list is still in the private care of one of the judges. The DCA will never tell the world the truth if they in fact blundered where I was concerned but I have a strong feeling that they did,” he said.Comforter told Dominica Vibes News that he when he received information that he had tied with another Calypsonian and that he should investigate the matter, he immediately called the President of the DCA whose response was; “shate a judge talk; that was his exact words over the phone to me; “a judge talk”. He said he went to the Association’s office later to receive his cheque as well as information regarding his performance as it his right to know where he was placed but was unsuccessful.“I went to the Association’s office yesterday afternoon and I met Ghost there so I asked him to see the results of where I was placed because there was a talk that me and Sye tied but Ghost is a rude man. He told me if I’m looking for any information go and look for the judges. Ghost treated me bad yesterday morning when I went to collect my cheque and to get information, we had a heated argument it even went personal and he was very rude so this tells me that somebody is hiding something.”He says there is no rule against adding lines to your song so he could not have been disqualified because he added a few lines.“There is no law saying that you cannot be flexible and just add a few words to enhance your song so there is no law against that. That was always part of my song but I saved it for the Semi’s because I kept asking in the song what were you saying, what were you saying and finally the pastor answered me.”Comforter says “I was supposed to be in the finals and because of politics here it goes”.Dominica Vibes News contacted the President of the DCA Kelly “Ghost” Williams but he did not wish to comment.Dominica Vibes News Share 54 Views   5 commentslast_img read more
