Shortly after midnight on Thursday morning, Montserrat crowned a new calypso monarch.

Steve Iceman Weekes is not a newcomer to the local calypso scene and finally his years of consistency paid off when he took the crown with his champion songs “Nar Sell Out Mi Country” and “20 Years On”.

The new calypso committee chaired by Roydenn Silcott and Ian Gerald are to be commended for presenting four stellar shows this festival season.

Best Newcomer – Ben Durand
