Gabby & Admiral on the same stage, amicably


Crop Over 2010 was perhaps remembered for the exchange between reigning calypso monarch, Anthony “Gabby” Carter and CBC Radio host Anthony “The Admiral” Nelson.

Now one year later, the two met on neutral ground to talk about the exchange. They were together on the first TV broadcast of Festival Stage. In Monday’s show, the two greeted each other with a hug.

It was at the 2010 Cohobblopot show at Kensington Oval when the two clashed, resulting in Gabby ripping the shirt of the Admiral from his back.

The incident was so infamous that it even inspired another calypsonian to write a song about it.
