Tributes Continue To Pour In Following The Death Of The Black Stalin

A fearless and uncompromising calypsonian, and a stalwart and treasure to the people of Trinidad and Tobago.

These are some of the terms used by the Oilfields Workers’ Trade Union as it reflected on the life and accomplishments of Black Stalin.

In a media release on Thursday, the OWTU said with his song used by many in the cry for equity and justice, it was his cry for black independence however that stands paramount amongst the rest.

The OWTU said he used his lyrics to inject a consciousness into our society as he spoke to the ordinary man informing him that the power to make change rest in his hand and not in the hands of those at the head.

To this end the OWTU again extends deepest condolences to Black Stalin’s wife Patsy, the rest of the Calliste family, Trinidad and Tobago, the Caribbean and all music aficionados and lovers of the Blackman’s music.
