Ju­nior monarch

Crop Over Souvenir - - VISITING FOR THE FESTIVAL -

When the judges’ points were tal­lied at the Lloyd Ersk­ine San­di­ford Cen­tre on July 21, two male ca­lyp­so­ni­ans in the 2018 Sco­tia­bank Ju­nior Calypso Monarch Fi­nals emerged vic­to­ri­ous. Emari Browne, per­form­ing as Browne Star, stood out from a field of eight com­peti­tors in the 7-12 years cat­e­gory, with a com­mand­ing per­for­mance of his song en­ti­tled Peace. Ke­naz Walker, per­form­ing as Mighty Bit Bit un­abashedly laid all his cards on the ta­ble while per­form­ing Please Give Bit Bit De Crown. If crowd re­ac­tion was the only cri­te­ria, Mighty Bit

Bit would have won the crown by a mile. Sakarah Thomas se­cured third spot with Colour My Bar­ba­dos and Mas­ter

Kei earned a com­mend­able fourth place with Home­less Not Hope­less.

De­qoun Al­leyne, per­form­ing un­der the moniker Quon,

swept away the field of six other com­peti­tors with his ren­di­tion of Why I Sing, to cap­ture the ti­tle in the 13-18 years cat­e­gory. Ya­handje sang Don’t Cry to take sec­ond place; Asher Mur­rell, per­form­ing as Dy­namo, cap­tured third place with Tales From De Crypt and Ky­morhi De Over­comer

Trot­man se­cured fourth place with a ren­di­tion of Bon Appetit.
