It was a long but entertaining night of calypso, featuring some of the top calypsonians from the Green valley district, but in the end, just after 2:00am, the following Sunday morning, it was Lady Diva, who was declared the winner.
Her victory came with the narrow margin of 4 points, over her closest rival, in the first Runner up position.
First Runner-up went to former Green Valley monarch, King Braw Bred, who scored a total of 735 points, falling just short of the winner, who got 739 points.
There were many in the audience however, who felt that it was the night of Bra Bred, and that he may have managed to pull off victory, but that was not to be, according to the results of the judges. But in calypso, what would be a competition without such controversy?
Godfrey captured the Second Runner up position collecting a total of 690 points. With 649 points “History” got the Third Runner-up spot.
The evening also saw a tribute being made to the late three time crowned monarch, Singing Angie, who was also the reigning monarch. Angie died suddenly a few weeks ago.
According to the festival chairman, Douglas Wattley, the crown that Angie won for the past three years will be retired and the new crown to be designated the singing Angie Festival Monarch Crown.
The retired crown was then handed over to the brother of Singing Angie, Ian Walters.
A number of other tributes were made by the various calypsonians to Singing Angie and also to the former chairman of the Green Valley Festival Committee Vernon Benjamin, who died suddenly last year, just after announcing his retirement from the leadership of the festival, after many years.
The Senior Calypso Monarch followed the Junior Calypso Monarch which was won by King Leo after he demolished the other contenders, winning by 62 points.
First Runner up went to Survivor and King Scribbles got third place.
The upcoming highlights for the festival include J’ouvert and Parade Day, to Monday 28th May, a public holiday in St. Kitts.
