The general council of the Trinbago Unified Calypsonians Association (TUCO) have appointed Ainsley King as the acting president of the organisation, following the death of its president Lutalo ‘Brother Resistance’ Masimba.
King was chosen during an emergency meeting on Friday.
A press release from the organisation said King, formally the vice president, presided over the meeting.
It said: “Pursuant to the constitution of TUCO, the general council moved a motion to appoint Mr Ainsley King as acting president of the organisation. Mr King called on members to unify during this difficult time and vows to take up the mantle in steering the organisation forward.”
Brother Resistance lost his battle with cancer last Wednesday at the West Shore Medical Private Hospital. He was 67.
