Legendary South panman honoured

Legendary San Fernando panman Lennox Bobby Mohammed, dubbed as one of the unsung heroes of the southern city, has received a Republic Day award from the non-governmental group, Citizens for a Better T&T. The function took place at the CBTT’s quarters at Lazarri Street, San Fernando, on Monday. During the brief ceremony in his honour, Mohammed said thousands of citizens were deserving of an award for their tireless and unselfish contribution to their country but received none for one reason or the other.

“These are the citizens with whom I would like to share this award,” the music icon said. Mohammed who at the age of 22 became the youngest arranger in T&T to win a Panorama title said God had touched his life in such a powerful way that he was able to claw his way from the from the brink of personal despair to one of hope for himself, his family and his country. He is adamant that criminals can become law-abiding citizens if only they will allow God to take control of their lives.

“Christ is the answer to many of the problems which man cannot solve,” the 71- year-old pan icon said. “This is my personal experience and that of many others who continue to testify that their miserable past has changed drastically from the day they give their lives to God.” Mohammed, who believes music and God are in his blood and soul, took the Guinness Cavaliers to the Panorama title in 1965 and repeated this feat in 1967 after finishing second in 1966.  He was honoured with the Humming Bird Medal (Gold) in 1992. Mohammed, who was born at Siparia Old Road, before moving to San Fernando, attended Siparia Road CM School, Mon Repos RC and Presentation College.
