Junior Mohamed is brother of two other siblings Anne-Marie and and Eddy who’s participated with ‘Pink 4 Life Carnival Group’ in the parades commemorating their father Wally Mohamed. Wally has just passed away a couple of weeks before on the 12th of February, 2019. The three siblings carried a picture of their father Wally on their body-pieces. Wally has always been a very jolly, charismatic person and a fervent Carnavalista himself. The Carnaval tradition in this family has been passed over from generation to generation and Wally would have wanted his children to mourn him by celebrating and participating with Carnival just like they did to honor him.
