The Trinbago Unified Calypso Organisation decided not to listen to the old song of no funding and let the show go on without distractions for 2018.

TUCO president Lutalo Masimba says calypsonians collectively spend between $15 million to 18 million dollars a year to record their songs and because of this he was not prepared to boycott any shows due to a lack of funding.

Brother Resistance said constant communications with the NCC is what saved the show for carnival 2018.

He is now calling for all parties involved, including those in what he calls the Tent Culture, to come to the negotiating table early to discuss how they can evolve carnival and eliminate the yearly ritual of funding argument.
