"Mighty Striker' Percy Oblington

by Kenrick Hutchinson
(POS Trinidad)

The now deceased "Mighty Striker' may have been the only calypsonian who won the Calypso Monarch for two consecutive years (1958/1959} and has been documented as such.He was one of the few calypsonians who wa able to play a number of instruments,as well as write his music scores.His two winning songs were Ban The Hola Hoop and Don't Blame The PNM.I was his arranger/producer for some 12 years and I have most of his music.
