The organizers of the Chutney Soca Monarch Competition, have cited a lack of government support and that of other sponsors, coupled with its inability to fund the venture privately due to its size and expense, as reasons for the cancellation of this year’s event.

Southtex’s Chief Executive Officer, George Singh, in a News Power Now interview this afternoon said one of the major sponsors of the competition the National Lotteries Control Board indicated that it was no longer able to give its financially support to the event.

Mr. Singh admitted that the latest development surrounding NLCB’s position made it difficult to pull off the show.

The 2018 installment would have been the twenty-third hosting of the prestigious competition which started in 1996.
