Finalists named in Junior Monarch
WILL THE CLARKE sisters do a double in the 13 to 18 category again this year?
Will Jazz-Z take the eight to 12 crown now that his main competition in the form of his elder brother Myles-Z is out of the way?
The answers to those two questions will be known on July 23, when the finals of the Scotiabank Junior Calypso Monarch competition is held at the gymnasium of the Garfield Sobers Sports Complex.
Competition was keen, especially in the senior category, at last night’s semifinals held at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre.
Emotions ran high after the 12 finalists from the field of 24 were announced.
Tears of both joy and sorrow flowed and wide triumphant smiles and disappointed looks covered faces.
The finalists in both categories are as follows:
Eight to 12: Ric-Anne Candy Princess Brathwaite, Trevon Mighty King Callender, Ranesha Confetti Cummins, Moesha Mighty Princess Elder, Jazz Jazz-Z Gittens, Carrie-Lyn Carrie G Grazette, Raanan Raanan Hackett and Teriq Adonis Linton. The reserve is Sarah Say Say Patrick.
13 to 18: Zahira Barbie Best, Aisha Mandisa Butchher, Anita AC Charles, Rabiah Small One Clarke, Samantha Sammy G Greaves, Ashley Queen Ashé Greene, Kadé Young Dia Mascoll and Khadijah Dijah Greene. Jahlyn Jahailer Noel is the reserve.
Aziza Lil Az Clarke is the defending champion.
