Lodge student Kymorhi Mighty K.T. Trotman was first out of the blocks in the Scotiabank Junior Calypso Monarch semi-finals, which finished yesterday morning at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre.
The first-timer brought a dramatic costume to his presentation of Poverty and received loud applause for his serious pipes and diction. His timing and interpretation were also impressive.
Singing “there is a thin line between wealth and poverty”, his name was the third called when the finalists were announced. He will, along with six others, face reigning monarch Jazz-Z in the final at The Gymnasium of the Garfield Sobers Sports Complex on July 20.
