Kendell Greene (Mr. Bess Lime) and Ken Sambury have been friends from longer than both can remember. Since UWI Social Club days these two partied and had big dreams together. Almost naturally, several years later Ken and his team were on hand to capture the inaugural Besslime Carnival Island Raff up.
Nothing beats the sunset over the sea on Carnival Sunday. That was a BESSSSS Lime!
This year, our team took to the streets of Port Of Spain to be in the middle of the excitement and capture whatever we see. Our video features Trinidad Carnival from a Masquerader's point of view - this is what you would see if you were to walk the streets during the largest street party in the world.
Trinidad Carnival is unique as this the only Carnival which is truly of the people. Every demographic, creed and race is represented on the streets. Some chipping inside, some alongside but everyone sharing in the Carnival feeling, the Carnival fever.

Work hard to achieve one's dream is the basic concept in which athletes base their lives upon. Thinking about it, we all base our day to day activities on this concept. For us, this music video celebrates this. My objective was the portrayal of different sectors of society working hard, training in their own ways and going for gold. The classy, clean production style of Mega Mick laid the foundation for the trained vocals of Sekon Sta, Nesta Boxill to melodically compose a ballad that will resonate through the speakers of every tournament in Trinidad and Tobago. This is our world and it is up to us to work hard and achieve our dreams.
Together we can do this. Together we aspire, Together we achieve.
