The CPMC announces updates to its list of qualifiers for the Calypso Monarch Competition after former multiple monarch, Minelle, announced her withdrawal from competition to cater to unforeseen challenges.

As a result of the withdrawal, two artistes whose points were tied, will now participate in this year’s competition. These artistes are J’Urgen and Dycer Fontellio.

The updated list of artistes and songs selected to advance to the next stage of competition is as follows. Note that the qualifying artistes are listed in alphabetical order, and not indicative of scores or judging preferences.

The CPMC wishes Minelle and all qualifiers the best as we move into the final round of competition. The Finals of the Calypso Monarch Competition, will be held on Saturday, July 9 at the SAAB, Vigie.

  1. Please reserve our already limited sporting facilities for the training, development and showcasing of our young sportspeople.

    There are several alternative grounds, which can be used for our important cultural events (like the Beausejour grounds OUTSIDE and adjacent to the stadium).

    We turned our athletic stadium into a hospital. We shut down a cultural venue at Choc and replaced it with the SAB, because the visitors accommodated nearby had liitle time and appreciation for our artistes and their artistry. Why do our youth, our most talented sportspeople, always end up holding the rotten end of the stick??? #FightCrime
