Dimanche Gras 2 5This is the sentiment echoed by President of the Trinidad Unified Calypsonians Organisation, Lutalo Masimba, best known as Brother Resistance.

In an interview on Power 102.1FM, Mr. Masimba said the show in its entirety falls under the purview of the National Carnival Commission, however the calypso competition on Dimanche Gras night, is managed and produced by TUCO.

He said this year’s format will see 16 Calypsonians vie for $800,000 TTD.

Each artiste will sing only one song, this year- a decision made after discussion among the membership.

He said the members felt that more people should be given the opportunity to compete.
