    Kudos to MCCP Team -26. The speciality I found in this committee members is the unique talent each one of them had, and some members are highly qualified and are holding good position and experience in different fields.

    The programe was super se upar, and the ladies dance and the fashion show made a difference apart to other dances which lavishly entertained the audience

    Wilson Olivera and his team and the comedian team delivered the best. Both MCs (Ronald and Dilip) are welknown speakers and they really did the best job .

    I wish similar programs in future too happen through MCCP

    Superb musical show. MCCP should have bought Wilson Olivera to Muscat long back, but still they made it this time. Great job MCCP. Wilson Olivera's lyrics were meaningful. If such lyrics comes to our konkani market I am sure konkani music will never die. Without meaningful lyrics a song is incomplete how good the music be. This show was with a complete package with good lyrics, good singing, good MC, good music and good comedy. Congratulations to the entire Wilson Olivera Team. Keep it up MCCP keep your good work in Muscat alive.
