“Practice makes permanent,” that is the advice from Aisha Mandisa Butcher, the 2012 Scotiabank Junior Calypso Monarch. The young calypsonian uttered these words last Friday when she met with the Scotiabank team for a small homecoming in her honour at the office of the company’s Managing Director Caribbean East in Warrens, St. Michael.
Scotiabank showered the junior champion with a grab-bag of goodies as an expression of pride and to welcome her home from her recent overseas guest appearance at the Trinidad Junior Monarch Final competition held on Monday, February 4, 2013 at the Queen’s Park Savannah. This performance, organised by the National Cultural Foundation, forms another one of her tour assignments as the current title holder.
As the start of 2013 Crop Over season draws nigh, Mandisa in reflecting on her experience over the last year commented, “I would have to say that it has been an awesome experience, with lots of opportunities for my growth and advancement as an artiste.”
The soft-spoken lass continued, “One thing that I am still getting used to though is the instant popularity that comes along with winning the title. It is still surprising and heartwarming when people recognise and congratulate me.”
