The driving force behind this extraordinary Carnival, is Bermuda’s own renowned Soca DJ, Jason R. Sukdeo, more familiarly known as D’General. A proud Bermudian with Guyanese heritage, Jason grew up as a true island boy, and fell in love with Soca music at an early age. Over time this love grew into passion, and while attending university in Canada, his DJ alter ego, D’General, came to life. From then until now, his following has grown, up to today, when he is considered one of Bermuda’s top Soca DJs. Thousands tune in to his weekly show on VIBE 103, and then turn out to merrily jump and follow him when he is 'pon d truck’, thrilling everyone with his DJ skills. Jason humbly attributes part of his success to his growth with other promoters such as Good Time Entertainment and Barmuvinjam, who have collectively entertained thousands.
The BHW Ltd. Board of Directors is headed up by Jason. The board also includes Directors: Sandra Richards-Vance, Jumaane Davis, and Dr. Akbar Lightbourne.
