He traveled the world with them and lived in many other Caribbean countries playing the Tumba drums. Upon his return to St. Vincent he met a pretty young lady whom he instantly fell in love with. When he met her, he asked her if she had a boyfriend and she replied no. He then told her he would like to be her boyfriend. She then asked him how old he was.
