Aldwyn Roberts 
      Trinidadian singer and songwriter (b. April 18, 1922, Arima, Trinidad, British West Indies—d. Feb. 11, 2000, Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago), was called the “grandmaster of calypso” and was instrumental in popularizing that music internationally; he was especially admired for his melodious style and his witty, often bawdy, lyrics. After living in London from 1948 to 1962, Lord Kitchener returned to newly independent Trinidad and Tobago, where he won the coveted title Road March King at Port of Spain's carnival 10 times before he ceased to compete in 1976. In the 1990s his image appeared on a stamp, and a statue was erected in his honour in Port of Spain.
