My name is Mangrove Fatz, I’m a DJ and I play with various bands throughout the carnival. I've been linked to carnival from when it started, I was there, but I started playing in 1977.

Mangrove Fatz 2 - What does Carnival mean to you:London

What does Carnival mean to you and to London?

Carnival means a lot to me, because I’ve been in it since I was a child, and back home in Trinidad. I think it’s done a great deal for London especially. It’s bringing in a lot of money!

What are your hopes for Carnival?

I hope carnival will get off to a good start next year. And I hope it continues, because most of the troubles we had in the early days seems to have disappeared now, and I hope everything goes alright.
