Passing Of A Calypso Foot Soldier

The funeral service of John Howell Walcott, fondly known in the Calypso world as Jus Come, was held at the St Francis Spiritual Baptist  Church, Huggins Street, Tacarigua, on Friday 15th of April.

The calypsonian and spiritual elder, who passed away on the 5th of April, was likened to a foot soldier to the art form, by Tuco’s president Lutalo Masimba, at the service.

Among the mourners were his wife Maureen Walcott (Lady Irie), his two children Steve and Marcia, and calypsonians Ann Marie Parks-Kojo (Twiggy) and Wilfred Barker (King Creole).
