After the 12 contending artistes had completed their two rounds of competition, many patrons shared the opinion that it was a two-horse race between Kurt Allen and Eric “Pink Panther” Taylor, but in the end Taylor emerged on top…as the 2013 National Calypso Monarch…
The Panther earned the first prize of one million dollars with his compositions “Travel Woes” in which he accounts the problems he encountered after booking a trip to London via sea but cannot see the ship.
His second piece “Crying in the Chapel”, laments the mourning of the recent deaths of Sonny “Mighty Power” Francois and Seadley “Penguin” Joseph, along with other cultural icons who have passed away, coincidentally, around the Carnival season.
The competition was held last evening at the Queen’s Park Savannah.
Allen, placed second with “Political Sin Phony” and “Black Stalin Say”, while Heather Mac Intosh’s rendition of “The Old Man’s Lament and “Invisible, earned her third place.
