Port of Spain, Trinidad: Tuesday, June 23, 2020: The National Carnival Commission of Trinidad and Tobago (NCC) is saddened by the death of stick fighter Matthew Brown, who passed away early Monday morning.

Brown, or King David, as he was fondly known, was an active member of the Moruga / St. Mary’s stick fighting community for several years, and was a member of the Bois Academy of Trinidad and Tobago.

A stick fighting stalwart, King David helped advance the artform within the community and the nation, winning several competitions over his many years in the field.

His vibrant energy and commanding presence will be sorely missed.
