PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad – Despite reports of a serious illness a few months ago, the Mighty Sparrow is back… fit as a fiddle and is now in Port of Spain, Trinidad, preparing for Carnival.

The Trinidad Express newspaper reported that the calypso icon surprised travellers at Piarco Airport on Saturday as he sang and danced his way through the terminal upon his return to Trinidad.

Sparrow said, “It’s always good to be home and feel welcome, and these guys have made me feel very comfortable.”

“The Birdie”, as he is fondly called, was met by Congress of the People (COP) leader Winston Dookeran, who is also Minister of Finance, and Senator Patrick Watson, and is scheduled to perform for the first instalment of the COP’s “Patriotic Services” on Monday.

Dookeran welcomed Sparrow back home and said he was happy to have the “the Calypso King of the World” in Trinidad and Tobago for Carnival.

Sparrow has long been rumoured to be in poor health, but he showed no signs of illness and was in good spirits as he enjoyed his warm welcome.

“I feel good. When you reach a certain age, yuh hatta walk ah lil different tuh when you was younger, right?” he said.

Fans surrounded the legendary artiste and sang along as extempo champ Black Sage free-styled verses of “Sparrow Come Back Home”.

Slinger Francisco expressed sadness at the recent death of Leroy “Conqueror” Paul and said he will be performing at Weston “Cro Cro” Rawlings calypso tent this season.
