PHILIPSBURG:— 23 Calypsonians have met the September 9th, 2016 deadline to register to for the 2017 NAGICO Calypso competition.
RAW Promotions Foundation, the entity charged with organizing the 2017 NAGICO Calypso Competition, is proud to announce that several newcomers and some who have been away from the Calypso stage are coming back, while many familiar faces will be competing in the upcoming competition next year.
King Repeater, The Mighty Carlix, King T-Mo, Mighty Dando, The Mighty Magic and Ricky The Phox are back after, in some cases, a lengthy absent from competition.
Sheera, Doctor Ray and Lady Righteous are new to the Calypso arena, and will have to contend with veterans such as Fish The Mega Boss, Chipman, The Mighty Pepper, Kaiso Brat, King Beau Beau and Young Carlix The Protege, just to name a few.
Empress Zee who is making another attempt to have the calypso crown placed on a female’s head, in this case, her own, is back in the arena, looking to extend the reign of the females.
NAGICO, the main sponsor of the Calypso Competitions for over 10 years, is on board for the 2017 competition and is also eager to see the level of the calypso competition improved.
For this reason, the organizers are inviting all calypsonians who have registered for the 2017 NAGICO Calypso competition to a meeting to be held on Friday, October 14th, 2016 in the A. C. Wathey legislative hall at 7.30 pm sharp.
