Winston Scarborough died of a heart attack at his Morvant home last Thursday, throwing the calypso community into mourning once again.
His death follows the passing of The Mighty Shadow.
De Fosto was 64-years-old.
Speaking at the service being held at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception earlier, De Fosto’s son, Marvin Scarborough said his father was among the greats in calypso.
He also called him a prolific calypso composer.
Mr. Scarborough, who lives in Brooklyn, New York also, said he only met his father at the age of 22.
However, he said his father had a major impact on his life.
Former President and calypso enthusiast, Anthony Carmona was also at the funeral.
De Fosto’s last public appearance was at the funeral of fellow calypsonian Winston “Mighty Shadow” Bailey last Tuesday at the Queen’s Park Savannah.
He joined other members of the community in a musical tribute at the end of the service.
