(St John's Antigua) –
New season, new name, new ambition. Namba Pulpit (formerly Dr Paul) takes his career to another level as he prepares to battle for soca honors with two brand new tracks for the upcoming Antigua carnival season, "Nwoke" and "I'm Your Lover".
"Nwoke" is a rhythmic soca track that describes his encounter with a Nigerian woman at a party. The infectious hook lines and upbeat tempo makes this song a serious contender for the jumpy category of the Party Monarch competition. It is also expected to be a hit among partygoers and masqueraders as well.
His second track "I'm your lover" serenades the ladies and tells a story of appreciation, commitment and love on the backdrop of a modern groovy soca beat. The song shows how the strength of a woman can build a man into someone great by giving him a sense of purpose and direction.
Named the Most Improved Calypsonian in Antigua for 2017, Namba says "I'm coming for all the titles this year!" Both tracks were written by Namba with assistance from Trinidadian Entertainer Incredible Myron B, who also produced the songs at his studio Incredible Entertainment Limited in Trinidad.
Born Eleston Adams, Namba Pulpit is a well-known and respected poet, playwright, director, actor and producer. He is the former Minister of Culture of Antigua and Barbuda and is now focusing on building a successful career as a calypsonian. Namba, under the designation of the Rio Revealers Theatre Group, has assisted calypsonians such as King Obstinate, King Fiah, King Progress, King Smartie JR. Queen Ivena and others, with their on stage presentations.
