Copping this year’s Groovy Monarch title for the third time was Ricky T, with the song “Mal Pale”.

Crowd favourite for the power soca segment, Fross, took the title of Power Soca Monarch with his hit song “God Made Man” which saw the entire crowd at the SAAB jumping and waving their piles of money in unison.

 Calypso Monarch Dezral, left fans yearning for more with his song “legacy”, where he was joined on stage by his father, local Calypso legend, The Mighty Pep.

We saw some very high-quality performances, making it very difficult for our judges to select a winner. We were also very pleased with the turnout this past weekend and happy to see patrons getting back into the groove of Saint Lucia Carnival. We can’t wait to see what the rest of the season has to offer.”

  1. The words does not encourage women to “eat man money”, it is a warning to men to keep their eyes opened but in the form of a papishow song.

    Then again, art or so called art is whatever we choose to interpret it as.

  2. i not going to lie fross deserved the crown but all of you that was jumping up to that song was a set of idiots, i am positive it was mostly women with money in hand that was doing that because they want somebody forwarding their papisho they doing
