Controversy is building yet again within the Crop Over festival.
The latest development involves the Celebration Time calypso tent, the National Cultural Foundation and Kensington Oval Management Inc.
The current matter relates to the cancellation of a booking Celebration Time calypso tent had secured with Kensington Oval Management in January to host the New Hype versus Old Hype show.
The booking was cancelled on Tuesday July 23 following a request by the National Cultural Foundation to use the facility for rehearsals on the same date August 1st.
Public relations officer of Celebration Time tent Janelle Walcott says they are awaiting the court's decision but says despite the recent development the Old Hype versus New Hype show will take place.
Meantime the stage is set for next week's Pic O De Crop finals at Kensington Oval.
This is the word from event producer of the National Cultural Foundation Adisa Andwele.
He says not only are the ten finalists ready but all the necessary provisions have been made for patrons to have a safe and enjoyable night.
He made his remarks at the media briefing for the MQI Banks LIME Pic O De Crop finals.
Acting chief executive officer of the National Cultural Foundation John Clarke says in light of the growing popularity of party music, social commentary still has its place.
