Organizers initially planned to host the activity last weekend, Saturday 13th August, but had to reschedule due to some circumstances.
Executive Director of the festival, Antonio Liburd said that before they award the winners and other participants with their earned prizes, a thank you ceremony would be held. This ceremony he added will be used to show the committee’s appreciation toward participants, sponsors, officials and members of the general public “who would have made Culturama 42 a reality.”
Winners of the various shows and street parade will be among those being awards.
Liburd told MyVueNews.com that in regards to the query that looms over the winner of the Soca Monarch show and road march, a committee was put in place to deal with the issue.
Antonio said, “The final report has not been submitted to the festival secretariat, so as of now the results from the night of the Soca Monarch contest still remains and will remain until a final report is brought back to the committee…”
Delly Ranks (and the Kore), the soca monarch winner is being accused of copying Lord Nelson’s ‘Leh We Oops’ song and using it as his in a collaboration he did with a popular string band.
Some of the winners of the various shows and activities were:
Junior Kaiso Monarch– Might Sookie
