Thread Name: Biography: Lord Invader- calypsonian- anyone knew?
Subject: RE: Biography: Lord Invader's day job?
Thanks for the information (some things about him I didn't know!), but have also read on Google Books, paraphrased: "Despite (Invader and other calypsonians') calypsos lamenting the increase of prostitution brought by the Americans, very few of them acknowledged their own participation in the pre-war exploitation of women". This implies that he was the stereotypical calypsonian, living on the money given to him by various women he was involved with. Is there any way of confirming or denying this? According to the Wikipedia article on him he was born in 1915, so why the discrepancy? When was he actually born?
