Mr Killa named as Cultural Ambassador

Hollice “Mr Killa” Mapp is this country’s latest Cultural Ambassador, as Cabinet on Monday agreed for him to be among the list of persons who, through their work, can promote the country in the area of culture.
Economic Affairs Minister Oliver Joseph made the announcement on Tuesday during the weekly post- Cabinet briefing.

“His duty will be to promote Grenada and he is well-known, not just in Grenada but throughout the region and internationally,” said Joseph, who admits that Killa’s recent exploits during the Trinidad Carnival has resulted in more bands from Trinidad for Spicemas 2014.

“He promoted Grenada so much that already more than one band will be coming up for our own carnival,”  Oliver revealed, who noted that he believes cultural ambassadors plays an important role when it comes to pushing the cultural activities of the country.

According to papers laid in the  Parliament last week Friday, the other cultural ambassadors are: Richardo Keens Douglas, Cecil Wilt Cambridge, also known as Tallpree; Winston Fleary, Urias Peters, Lazarus Antoine, Finley Jeffery, and Sheldon Douglas.
