Culture minister Dr Nyan Gadsby-Dolly and Trinbago Unified Calypsonians Organisation (TUCO) president Lutalo Masimba (Brother Resistance) wished comedian and talk show show host Dennis “Sprangalang” Hall a “speedy recovery.”

And a medical source said “Sprangalang is serious. He is not doing well. We are doing our best on our end. Sprangalang is a fighter.”

Sprangalang, 71, remains hospitalised at Eric Williams Medical Sciences’ Complex, Mt Hope.

During his career, he hosted calypso tents and comedy shows and provided rib tickling humour about topics like corned beef. He also appeared in Kes The Band’s official video for its 2018 hit Hello.

When contacted his wife 2019 calypso queen Natasha Nurse (Sezy Suzie) said “The specialists are here now. They are working on him to see what caused the seizures. We are hoping for the best.”


“It was an absolute miracle that no innocent people were injured or killed.”

These were the words of a senior officer when speaking to the Express yesterday following a confrontation between two men and an off-duty police officer on Wednesday night along the Lady Chancellor Road in Port of Spain.

The two men were killed by the cop in this incident, while a third suspect is in police custody.
