Written by: Adela Scotland

The 6th of May 2023 will mark Trinidadian-born calypsonian David Rudder’s 70th birthday; it is also the day of his final major event entitled 7.0 as the Calypso icon was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. During an interview at Kafe Blue on Wrightson Road Trinidad and Tobago he revealed that the diagnosis was the conclusion of recent tests.

Rudder has reassured his fans that he is here to stay for a long time to come by saying, “Have no fear I’m not going to drop dead tomorrow.”

He went on to elaborate that his concert would be a grand affair stating, “I plan to give a marathon four-hour performance. This will be my last show like this as I simply won’t have the energy. I will do little performances here and there as long as I can.”

Although Rudder has been optimistic about his diagnosis he couldn’t help but cry as he spoke about his exit to the concert world. Rudder expressed that he is grateful to have had the opportunity to have such an impact on Caribbean culture.

It doesn’t matter what kind of stage David Rudder is performing on, he is a symbol of the Trinidadian voice and an unstoppable force to be reckoned with.

Caribbean Entertainment Hub extends our prays and best wishes to this living legend and looks forward to celebrating his 70th birthday concert with him.
