King Socrates leads the way into Calypso Semi Finals

Basseterre, St. Kitts, Monday, 2nd December, 2019, (MyVueNews.com) – After a short hiatus from the calypso arena, former calypso King, Socrates has made a return for Sugar Mas 48, and in so doing, is leading the pack into the Semi-Finals of the Senior Calypso Monarch Competition.

After a weekend of eliminations, the judges, were able to sift through the pool of some 43 artistes, to determine which 17 will move on to the preliminary stage of the annual contest.

Socrates amassed a total of 245 points, the highest amongst those who presented themselves to the judges. However, he has very little room for comfort, given that his lead was only by 3 points, ahead of Queen Brown Sugar, (242 points).
